COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Born in a dream, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer refers to a mythical place in the boreal north. While the waterfall may exist solely in Larry Bellís imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness youíd expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

Pint at the Eccentric with the wifey. In truth, I ordered the Wild One, but kept taking surreptitious nips of this beautiful beer. The pale straw color and moderate white head apparently had me hard-wired to expect a wan beer experience, but lo! this was anything but. Unexpectedly piney aroma with traces of cereal. Flavor brought forth more PNW hop character, accompanied by crisp graininess and minerality. Very dry finish. Q-falls is very likely Bellís most underrated creation.

neuromatt (1016) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 19, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2011 On tap at the the Bellís Eccentric Cafť in Kalamazoo, served in a tasting glass. Pours clear straw with a small white head. The head fades quickly to a thin remnant and leaves a small amount of white lace. The nose has satisfying lemony citrus notes along with pine and crystal malts. The flavour is dry throughout with straw and big hops with notes of fruit and citrus, pine and forest. The finish is clean with a lagerish quality. On the palate, it is light in body with a dry texture and soft carbonation. Overall, this is a decent crisp and hoppy lager that is more ale-like than I expected. 2011-08-14

madvike (2582) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 17, 2011
On tap at Maduro - Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Light citrus hop nose, with apricot, light cracker malt--clean and crisp. Taste is light, fruity, but with a light, clean peach and citrus/grass hop finish. Has the same pale malt, with a real bitter, quenching component. Light-bodied and nicely carbonated. Beautiful.

arkurzynski (1396) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 14, 2011
GTMW. Brilliant, crystal-clear golden yellow. Big hop aroma - pine, citrus. Very present, smooth hop bitterness, with a brief glimpse of the pale malt, citrus lemon, and biscuit on the tail-end. Residual crisp bitterness. Very fresh and clean. Low fruitiness and ultra-crispness only thing keeping this in the premium lager category and not the IPA category. So easy to drink.

On draft at the GTMW. Pours pale amber with a finger thick white head. Aroma is lager malts, piney and earth. Flavor is much the same as the aroma. I could drink this beer all day. Light bodied and medium carbonation. Has a dry finish.

This beer was featured at the "12 Bellís of Christmas" at Chatham Tap in Fishers, IN in early December. First off, I have to start this off with wow. It pours a BMC like dark straw yellow with no head at all. It look no different than a Bud or Millter Lite. This deception leads to a greater finish. It smells great. It has this Gumballhead mixed with IPA aroma to it. It is very piny, floral, has hoppy bitterness to go with subtle sweetness. The flavor mirrors this. It has the flavor of Gumballhead mixed with an IPA to feature a perfect mix of the two. This is by far the best lager Iíve ever had. It drinks very light and smooth. The content is very deceptive. It drinks so light and has exceptional flavor that this beer can creep up on you. It is excellent, absolutely phenomenal. Wow. Itís disappointing that this may have been my only time to drink it. What a beer

Thorpe429 (5006) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 16, 2011
On tap at Stub and Herbís Bellís Fermented Eclipse Event. Reviewed from notes. Pours a pale shade of yellow with a bit of haze. Several finger white head and a bit of lacing. Nose consists primarily of a really nice earthy pine scent with a bit of a floral aspect to it as well. Taste isnít quite as heavy on the pine, and adds in a bit of mild bready flavors. Mouthfeel is nice and dry with the spice. Although a bit heavy and unique in the flavor to be too drinkable, this was quite good. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 10-14-2010

Pailhead (4414) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 30, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 31, 2011 On tap: The aroma consists of light-moderate pine and grapefruit with a hint of honey. It pours a bright transparent gold with a small white head that leaves behind spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a very quick dose of light honey sweetness. The finish is moderately hoppy with pine, grapefruit, and floral notes. Overall itís probably one of the hoppiest lagers Iíve had in quite some time. Very tastey and sessionable. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

I drank a ton of this stuff during the RBSG. Pale straw coloured pour. The nose is fresh and spicy. Very dry, crackery malt base. A nice minerality and a great combination of noble and fruity American hops. Lightly minerally. Bright, clean, zesty and hoppy. Lemon peel/lemon verbena. Awesome stuff.
