Sampled from the tap at the 2010 MBG Fall Fest. Poured a hazy gold with a with a white head that lasted throughout the beer. Aroma had some citrus (orange, lemon and grapefruit) some acidity and a bit dry. Flavor had more of a bread note with the citrus becoming a background note. The finish did have a decent amount of acidity as well as being slightly dry.

On tap;pour is clear golden with a modest white head that retains on the average side. The nose is slightly fruity, with a hint of baked bread, and a light spice note is present. This brew is slightly bitter, with a dab of honey for sweetness, finishing light and crisp.

Backlog rating on 11-08-2012 at Club Soda, Fort Wayne, IN. This draft beer has a very small white head with a long retention, opaque yellow body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is bready malt and yeast. The flavor is bread malt, yeasty and very dry. The mouthfeel is smooth and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable, has an enjoyable flavor and is worth trying.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear golden-yellow colored body with a finger-width, frothy, white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is a bit bready and slightly fruity with a touch of floral citrus and some grains. Flavor is better. Pale malts and a touch of bread with a nice grassy, floral citrus throughout. Finishes dry and clean with a nice floral, light bitterness and touch of honey sweetness that leaves a medium length aftertaste. Light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent beer. Nice, even flavor with a solid balance. Not bad.

Poured a light cloudy yellow into a pint glass. Aroma zesty as in pepper and coriander. Flavor was grassy, citrus orange and spicy. Had back to back with another Bell’s Biere de Garde and both were okay but just kind of plain. Has a light body with a dry finish. Not one of my favorites in this tap tackover but happy a tried it.

Sample on tap at Eccentric. The beer has a dingy straw body with little head and aromas of basement mildew funk. Maybe dirty dishrag or something. Flavor is much better, thank goodness, but tastes more like a wheat beer or something. Lots of cloves and bananas with a little wheat or something. A little weak, maybe a little watery.
