Leighton (10413) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2010
Tap at Mugs. Pours a hazy, light yellow with a soft, pure white head. Aroma holds some lovely doughy bread notes, augmented by light lemon and spice notes. Flavor is reasonably sweet, with doughy malts, lemon, bubblegum and yeast. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with fruity zest and dough malts, along with a modest dryness. Delicious.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 12, 2010
Tap at Barcade. Pours a nice hazed golden blonde with a nice lasting sticky white head. Aroma has a slight DMS if warmed enough, but mostly nice fruity ester with lots of lemon hint, doughy malts, yeasty, light bready notes, almost pilsner malt like with some slight clove and bubblegum with grassy hops. Flavor is zesty lemon peel, mineral, grass, big doughy yeasty note, fresh bready malt, light grass, lemon-lime, mineral light earth and very dry- incredibly drinkable for 8.2% When i first had this at BBD I thought it was 5%? Very nice!

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Draft at the Three Penny Taproom - Poured a golden yellow in color with a medium white head that left some nice lacing. Aroma is malty and slight sweet with plenty of fruits (peach/apricot) and spices (coriander). Flavor is yeasty with fruits and light citrus. Other raters have referenced its similarity to the Allagash tripel... I agree. Good beer...

puzzl (3249) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Spicy, yeasty aroma, caraway, slightly sweet corn aroma. Dry and crispy, light wheat, kind of vegetal, with a skunky American lager kind of finish. Not their best effort .

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 19, 2010
On tap at Mama’s Crow Bar. Pours a blonde amber color with a white head. Aroma of candied apricots and belgian yeast. Maybe some citrus in there. Flavor reminds me a lot of the ’gash triple, which is a great thing. But it’s a bit more subtle. Somewhere between a triple and a white lies this blonde. Good beer, hides it’s alcohol very well.
