tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 15, 2013
Pour is a clear golden color, little bit of yeast floating around, with a fluffy white head. Very floral nose, slightly spicy and citrusy, some pine, and a little grassy. Grassy and slightly peppery taste, there’s some not-quite-dark fruit in there, almost a perfumey taste. Light bodied, medium carbonation. Quite tasty, very floral, but the aroma was a lot better than the taste.

ARH (806) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2015
12oz bottle poured into a high ball glass. The aroma has a honey sweetness and a dry spice to it with undertones or oranges and toast as well as a bit of a waxy crayon. There’s a hint of banana and clove on the nose late. It’s a clear, pale - gold color with a filmy thin white head that has only light levels of retention and lace. The flavor is a medium bittersweet. The texture is oily, and a bit thick with a zippy, light carbonation. The medium body is spicy with notes of herbs, honey and/or bitter marmalade and toast. It finishes crisp with clove and bitter lemon notes as well as a notable crayon. The aftertaste is lightly cloying with herb, bread crust, and citric acid. Overall, specifically in the finish and aftertaste, it’s not too dissimilar to a mild, floral IPA.

wyzzywyz22 (2094) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2015
Bottle, Londis, Penny Lane, Liverpool. Poured a clearish orange colour with a small white head. Nose was slightly fruity with some yeast presence. Sweetish flavour with some notes of malt, citrus and yeast. Had a vaguely Belgian feel to it but really nothing to write home about. What’s all this guff about best ale over 5% in the UK as well?! & don’t show the bottle to any Riot Grrrls either.
