Bottle. Pour is bright gold with a nice white head which quickly disappears. Aroma is rich botanicals, citrus/floral hops, spicy belgo yeast, grain husk. Flavor is spices, botanicals, a bit of malt sweetness, and a nice floral hop bite. Palate is dry, crisp, light-medium body, bitter finish. Quite good.

22 ounce bottle from ekoerper, poured a hazy yellow with a thick white head, had a floral aroma, with yeast and a hint of pineapple. Has a light body that is very pleasing on the palate for a hot summer day. Grapfruit notes hit the tounge immediately with a little clove/spiceness on the back end.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Ginger Man in Austin, TX. Pours the color of liquid hay with a tall light tan head and thin sheets of lacing. Fruity and yeasty aroma. First sip had a touch of banana and herbs almost along the lines of a hefeweizen but then a stronger malt profile and a surprising hop presence kicked in. Rich but still refreshing texture with medium carbonation and a sweet crisp finish. A really well balanced and flavorful beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft taster, Bavarian Lodge. Slight banana smell at the start, then the berry and plum notes of a nice warmly fermented beer, plus some wheat or rye spice. Bright yellow like a pils, but with a sneaky reddish tinge. The first sip seems a little thin for such a busy beer.But thereís the taste: a melange of Belgian pale malt, strawberry, Dreamsicle and grains of paradise, although surely that spice comes from the yeast. A complex beer thatís a welcome change from lighter summer fare.
