from mesa gathering. poured from a growler pale gold with no head. sweet aroma of caramel, malt, and something vegetal...almost like a lager yeastiness. flavor is the same with a pleasant acidity, dried herb or yeasty spice dryness. the finish is clean with some lingering alcohol. medium bodied with very little carbonation.

[Brewtopia 07] Poured a hazy golden color with a small white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of coriander, cardamom, citrus fruits, orange peel, wild yeast? and light toast. Taste of more coriander, grains of paradise, lots of the fun Belgian spices, with some citrus, toffee, wheat, and light tartness in the finish.

Tap. Pours a golden color with a slight white head. Aroma is malt, hop, yeast, and slight banana/vanilla. Taste is the same, and the beer remains smooth throughout. A bit watery, but not bad.

Growler courtesy of scthaden from the other site. A beautiful pour w/ a small, white head w/ excellent lacing and retention. Reminiscent of Stella Artois, and that’s not good. Like Belgian Bud. Maybe the growler lost a little bit in the shipping process.

Growler filled at Whole Foods on Bowery. Aroma of champagne. Very fermented smelling. Appearance isn’t that great, really macro-pale lager like. Flavor is pretty decent, lots of malt in the finish. It’s okay alcohol and bitterness in the initial taste. Good full mouthfeel.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Exactly what the names evokes. Could be used as currency. A golden yellow color with a little fine head. Love coming to Captain. Sweet aroma of candy and sugar with some light wheat and malt. Taste is so smooth and delicious. A little on the wheat side of belgian but it was hot out so it was quite refreshing. Finish does not linger and just begs to be poured again.
