Draught ar Bailey’s Taproom in Portland (from notes). Funky, yeasty, and lemon aroma. Initial has a pleasant lemon character which gains intensity through the finish. Final gives off some dry, straw, residual lemon. Like a moderated version of Cantillon Gueze. Nice stuff, indeed.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
From the 11/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 750 ml corked brown bottle this beer poured a murky orange-apricot color with a large foamy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was musty and dusty peach, orange and pear. The flavor was dry and bretty with notes of peach and orange. Medium finish and body. Tasty - like a fruity Orval.

Sweet, light honey nose with a touch of apple and leaves. Flavor is lightly sweet, with honey and ripe pear, some raw sugar, light citrus juice, and a touch of dusty yeast. Fairly solid, but could use improved carbonation retention.

GT2 (7895) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 22, 2012
750mL thanks to brainlair. Pours a clear lighter orange. Fizzy, larger, big bubbled head. Spotty lace. Better appearance on second pour. Still a bit over carbonated. Nose is orange peel, lemon, orange marmalade, sweet orange candy drops, sweet cream butter, mild Brett and cedar. Taste is minerally, spicy, sharp carbonation, more sweet cream butter, fresh biscuit, orange marmalade, small margarine but no diacetyl. Palate is moderately tart and tangy. Thick biscuit and bread. Really nice. Refreshing. No flaws. As it warms, more lactic acid comes through in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
