Pours a cloudy gold with a solid white head. Very similar to saisons. Aroma is very earthy. Taste is sweet with a somewhat sour finish, hops come through nicely. Very smooth drinking. Overall I enjoyed the brew, however I would like to get a bottle and age it and see if the aroma and taste change for the better.

a little thin, but sweet and a bit spicy. Flavor is a bit earthy while flavor is that of grain, farms, and banana. Like a wit, but filtered, littlesmoother, and a bit more like champagne. Bottle from Neighborhood Quick Stop on Kendall in Miami.

(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is sweet and tart with hints of earth, yeast, flowers, and lots of fruit. Flavor is much the same. Lots of sweet fruit and yeast notes begin with a mildly spicy flavor near the end. Very bready.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle enjoyed on the outdoor patio at The Grand in Grand Haven, MI during the Fourth of July Fireworks show, ’09. Nice attractive orangish pour with fizzy head that emits a yeasty/fruity nose. The yeasty fruitiness predominates in flavor as well, along with some herbal hopping, spicy notes, and touches of bready sweet malt. Good...refreshing.
