Wow. This has some zing to it. Got it as a gift from a Michigander friend for a friendly wager on the Lions-Packers game. Packers won, so I got some Michigan beer. Of course I asked for Bells. It pours a hazy, golden color, impossible to see through, with a thick foamy head, which of course reminds me of the Packers’ similarly impenetrable secondary. The aroma has some great citrus notes, as light and airy as Charles Woodson gracefully decending to the turf with yet another interception. The flavor very yeasty, with spicy clove notes that zip, perfectly on-target, to the back of your tongue like an Aaron Rodgers touchdown pass. It’s really a great blend of the Hefe and Belgian styles, kind of like B.J. Raji throwing a block for John Kuhn as he dives for the endzone. Unlike the Lions’ defense after Ndamukong Suh was ejected, there’s nothing missing from this beer. Thanks Kevin! You’re a good sport, and this was a great beer.

Pint on tap. Hazy straw color with a lasting disc of foam. Nose is bubblegum, resin, light citrus and toffee. Tastes the same. Light-medium body is a little too fizzy but has a nice drinkable balance.

Jabah (253) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2015
Hazy yellowish appearance. I’d say more like a summer/spring brew but has some winter spices to it. Some citrus flavors, banana maybe, wheaty-belgian yeast, etc. Aroma a little skunky-sour....citrus balances it out some. Slight hoppy finish. On clearane for about $4 or $5 a 6-pack, so figured I’d give it another try.

Can. Pours hazy pale yellow with large spongy white head, citrus aroma, medium carbonation, slightly sour lemon taste, abrupt finish. Easy to drink but not that impressive.
