Had it on tap last weekend at Brooklyn Brewery with beerloco, mrs. beerloco, kplynch, deliriumfest, ms. deliriumfest, and DBhog.
Appearance: Pale straw yellow, cloudy, with a nice 1 finger white crown that shows some lace and retention.
Smell: A beautiful grassy lemony hop bouquet with a bready malt quality. Very refreshing and satisfying.
Taste: same as the nose but with an added oak like note and more yeast presence. very nice!
Mouthfeel: on the light side of medium bodied. Good amount of carbonation. A touch too light if anything, but pretty nice.
Drinkability: I had 3 pints and wanted more!
Serving type: on-tap

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark yellow color with a s white foamy head. Nose is peppery, heavy grass, lemony, kind of dry. Palate is full with a nice playfulness. Flavors are peppers, grass, dry notes, lemons, really quite pleasant, easily drinkable and enjoyable.

100ml from bottle served by Garrett Oliver himself. Pale yellow-golden body under a tiny, white layer. Mid-sweet aroma of floral fruits and wheat. Citric fruits in flavour supported by late banana, herbal hops and with a spicy twist to it all. Smooth bitter ending. Well balanced (Copenhagen Beer Festival, 08.05.2010).
