COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Based on a long-lost brewing recipe from the Hudson Valley in the early 1800s, we used New York State malts and whole leaf Cluster hops (a heritage variety) to authentically recreate this heirloom ale.

A hazed golden amber ale with no head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light bananas and sulfur notes, cloves, nice. In mouth, a sweet banana malt with light berry notes, OK. Cask at Beau’s Oktoberfest Sept 29 2012.

Sammy (8663) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 17, 2012
Beaus private order group. Traditional as in no hops, myrtle detected. So-so drinkable. A strong yeast aroma, funky yeast beverage mostly. Soft carbonation. Medium yellow with some bubbles, and lace lines. Nothing exceptional.

JoeMcPhee (8410) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2012
Cloudy orange pour with no head. The aroma is spicy and softly peppery. A little bit of orange peel and some spicy yeast. A bit of light clove along with some light spiciness as well. More saison than anything. Interesting.

jercraigs (7812) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
2012-10-08. Hazy pastel orange body, small bubbly off-white head that fades. 3+ Flavour has a sweetish citrus melange, modest bitterness, very lightly astringent at times. Five Alive like citrus melange undercurrents - but not that sweet - add a quality to the bitterness that I struggle to describe. 6+ Aroma has a similar quality to it that I can’t put my finger on, vaguely citrusy/fruity herbal character but not quite that. Average plus bodied palate is under carbonated. I really enjoyed it, but it is very odd. On tap? at Brewmarket, Brick Works, Toronto

blankboy (6052) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 10, 2013
Bottle [600ml]. Pours a hazy straw-yellow with an average size mostly-lasting frothy off-white head. Aroma of straw, grain, yeast, banana, citrus, herbs and spices. Mild, fruity, slightly sweet, wheaty flavour along with grain, herbs and spices. Medium bodied. Just good, I don’t love it but its O.K. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[4853-20121008] Cask. Strange herbal spiced lemon balm aroma. Hazy, light orange brown body with no lasting head. Something like muted raspberry in the flavour with creamy grainy yeast. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

Bouteille de 600 ml achetée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales avec une pointe fruitée. Apparence: La couleur est blonde voilée avec une très faible densité de bulle.

Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement aqueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de banane en arrière goût. (Rating #4764)

Eructoblaster (3024) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Bottle - 600ml. Hazy blond body with heavy carbonation and a thiin white foamy/creamy head. Fresh malty/hoppy aroma with grainy and herbal hints. Taste is well balanced. It carries some grassy, bready, and coriander notes. Ends with a decent bitter/herbal finish. Good stuff, but a bit thinner than expected.

Gorbalev (2924) - Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle, Beaus 2012 Oktoberfest mix pack. Straw yellow, small white head. Light floral and spice aroma. Taste is light - spicy hops, sort of sweet light malt, with a sweet finish. This actually tasted similar to the zins jo kokot we just had, but not near as good. Better than the draft ratings, but still just decent.
