Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Aaron! Hazy orange pour with a fluffy white head, aroma brought notes of white fruits, some grass, pine, hints of earth, slight biscuit and bread. Taste is a mix of white fruit, grass, slight peach, hints of earth, grain, biscuit, finishing fairly bitter, dry, slightly sweet.

Bomber to snifter (shared by phaleslu). Looks good for e style; a slightly cloudy golden orange with fluffy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; fruity, spicy, yeasty, and wheaty. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

I think I’ve got a couple 4 Hands beers rated higher than this, but this is the beer from them I’d buy the most if it was year round and line priced. It pours clear golden yellow with a white head. The aroma has dry stone fruit, tropical fruit, light earthiness, minor spice and a touch of funky Belgian bugs. It has a body that is light, clean and refreshing. There is some carbonation, but its quite restrained. The flavor starts with dry crackery malt, peppery spice, spicy/earthy hops, minor grapefruit and earthy buggy yeastiness. The finish has some sulfur, grass and spice. Excellent table/session/Belgian ale. Hope this is around for a while or makes it to the year round line up.

Tap. Pours a hazy golden color with a foamy head. Aroma has some funky elements to it. Grainy notes. Flavor is tart, funky, and bready. Has nice saison elements to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
