mansquito (3349) - Nueva York, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Wally’s, LA: Pours golden orange with a big fluffy white head. Aroma is farmhouse funk and a healthy dose of honey. Taste is sharply bitter in a subdued way. The honey is fortunately also quite subdued, but it adds to the taste rather than the sugar content. Finish is pretty dry. Aftertaste of honey hops and minerals.

[Tap] Golden colored pour with a slight haze to it. About an inch of frothy white head on top. Crisp aroma of honey, cereal malts and noble hops. Flavors of cereal grains, clover honey, wheat, cracker, yeast, mild herbal notes and straw. Solid palate. Comes across as creamy in a way. Crisp and mild hop finish is pleasant. Good stuff.

BMMillsy (1325) - Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2014
On tap at Falling Rock in Denver. Pours hazy yellow with lots of fluffy head. Aroma of yeast funk, sweet honey, some light citrus and pear, a bit of spice, and more funkiness. Flavor follows the smell very closely with some additional sweetness and body, some nice finishing spice and light grassy hop character. Body is light to light medium with medium plus carbonation. Goes down pretty easy. Nothing special but worth drinking on a nice summer day.

beer-yum (456) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 2, 2014
Full on citrus aroma followed by the expected Belgian flavor makes for an excellent experience. Made even better by its low alcohol content (which allows one to have more than one).
