rmussman (1688) - California, USA - APR 14, 2014
Sampled in a bomber. A nicely made brew that has a light hop palate and a crisp / carbonation that is nice on the palate. Nicely constructed brew.

jazz88 (2526) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 5, 2014
Bottle in Maui. A golden color with a foamy off white head. A yeasty Belgian aroma with noticeable honey. A grainy flavor that doesn't quite balance out but still very enjoyable.

DuffMan (6153) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippits, and my wife. Deep golden, slightly hazy. Sweet pale malt and floral honey profile, really lovely aromatics here! Peppery notes in the finish. Balanced and nuanced. Lovely.

beernbourbon (1262) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Tap and bottle sampling. Pour is deep luscious gold with a lasting white head. Aroma and flavor bursting with sweet bubblegum malt, pronounced spice, light honey, and Belgium yeast notes. This place produces some assertive beers and this is no exception. Still clean and drinkable though with a smooth sweet finish.

From bottle to glass. Pours a golden color with a nice head. Aroma is sweet like honey with malts. Taste is clean and refreshing with a great sweetness if honey and malts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jonas (5469) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Honey golden, low offwhite head. Spicy honeyish nose, cherry notes are certainly there. Medium body, light viscous mouthfeel. Nice fruity (also pineapple, berries) and honeyish base flavour, lavender, restrained yeastyness - well conditioned. Dangerously drinkable aromatic brew.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - JUL 31, 2013
22oz bottle, courtesy of Bonnie and Nathan. Thanks, guys! Pour a bright golden-orange color; tiny off-white head with great lacing. Floral and honeyed notes in the aroma; a bit of red apple and warming alcohol. Medium-full body, lively co2: a leaner feel due to that prickly carbonation; candied sweets, cotton candy, and yeasty notes of white pepper and vanilla; layered and tasty. Really nice beer. Lasting finish of crystalline sugars and light tastiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

decaturstevo (4664) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUL 29, 2013
Golden pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is rock candy and Belgian yeast. Rock candy, yeast, abv, and a nice bitter finish. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
