Elwood (3009) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 12, 2011
Serving: draft at Fireworks. Pours a hazy gold with a small but smooth white head. The nose is spritzy with notes of lemon, yeast, and cider. The flavor has a good bit oak, slight tartness, lemon zest, earthy yeast, and slightly herbal hops. Very dry on back with a slight white wine note lingering. Apretty solid brew and very refreshing.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2011
Draft at Commercial TapHouse. Quite pleased to get to try this. Hazy blonde, nice head, quite attractive on a hot summer day. Aroma was lighlty wheaty with a spicy yeast note. Flavor was a match, with a really good spice backbone over the malt flavors. Faint undefined fruit as well. Finished dry. Really refreshing, never would have pegged this at 8.2%. Really a very good beer.

22 oz bottle pours a hazy yellow brew. Good long lasting head which left some nice lacing. Aromas of tangy Belgium yeasts fruits and sweet malts. Refreshing and crisp. Nice lively mouth feel due to the carbonation.

Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is lightly fruity and spicy. A kiss of tart wheatiness and some very fresh spiciness as well. Light malt backed by sweet vanilla as well. Lovely soft crackery malt and a great yeasty spice/fruit character.
