Pale golden color with a fluffy white head. LIttle to no lacing. Strong yeast aroma with bread, hay and some spices. Light carbonation and body, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Some sweet malts and flavors mostly follow fromt he aroma. A hint of pepper and mild citrus hops on the finish. Refreshing, easy drinking summer beer. If you enjoy yeast undertones, you could session this one.

Bottle. Aroma is nice, Belgian hints with citrus and malts. The taste is pretty balanced, with an easy Belgian taste...slight lemon taste and a good finish. Enjoyed this beer a good bit, will probably try some more while the weather still suits it! 6.0% alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light golden, with a thin white head that quickly dissapears. Very easy to drink. Very balanced, nice bitterness, a little sweetness, some citrus, a little yeast, a little funk, a little clove, but not at all extreme in any one flavor. This would be a great beer for the transitional drinker. It has a very pleasant long finish. Very easy to drink, very broad pairing possibilities, good warm weather brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lemony jam aroma with a good jolt of yeast. Good label. Clear, intense yellow beer. Slightl astringent, very lightly candied, nicely bittered. Sweet breakfast cereal flavors on the backend - sugar, faux citrus, a sour twang. A brothy, stock-y mouthfeel and a bitter rind/pith aftertaste. Clean drinking though not a real big beer, it’s not indistinct either. I agree with the commercial description, this would be a good food pairing with a wide variety of dishes. Chan’s Wine World, PCB.
