JoelMiler (13) - Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Poured pale golden with a decent white head that diminished quickly. Almost no aroma, although only hints of any scent were apple type flavors, but, so faint to be barely perceptible. Flavor was mild with a bit of cidery spice, but not too overpowering. Quite mild, but, very refreshing.

Hazy golden pour with quick receding white head .... Aroma of sweet citrusy fruit, caramel malts, grassy hops and light Berry .... Taste is sweet and of citrusy fruits, light Berry and sweet grassy hops ... A little grainy and malty ... Soft mouthfeel ... Little too sweet for the style

DATE TASTED: January 9, 2016... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... OCCASION... pinewood derby cars, cut and awaiting sanding tomorrow... APPEARANCE: a central whirl of bubbles power a light amber body with moderate clarity; a snow-white two-finger head simmer to a cirrus island with an atoll surrounding it... AROMA: ginger, resin, and vanilla join with light dough, bubblegum, and damp yeasts... caramel and toffee are sweet... quite a panoply of scents to breathe in... PALATE: medium-bodied, mellow--flatter than the glass suggests--and slick... TASTE: apple and pear roll out, almost as a cider, before the caramel and toffee sweeten the deal... this glass offers the bubblegum and pepper more associated with a weizen, but the malt is heavy and holds the flavor profile’s roots down.... OVERALL: a strong, pleasant conveyance of 6.4% worth of ABV, with a fruity, malty flavor that begs for the next sip.... the sugary aftertaste suggests a dessertif...the late phenol might suggest a bigger hit than it delivers, but overall, an enjoyable experience...

11.2 oz capped bottle. Pours a fizzy blonde color with a thick cream foam head and lace. Corny, grassy aroma. Surprised to see a lot of different flavor here. Mostly grassy with a lot of corn and some wheat. Thick creamy body to it. Dry grain finish. Interesting beer.

It pours golden with pulp like suspended elements in the glass. It has a honey aroma, with bread malts, a bit of caramel, and earthly elements. It has a sweet taste with a bit of sour with a fair bit of carbonation pop to it. Taste does have dough and bread flavoring to it.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste sweet, biscuit, fruity. I thought this was pretty good. I would definitely drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle at home from backlog notes. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have bready malts, honey, light caramel, mild fruity notes, some dusty character, soft earthy bitterness to the finish.

A very nice blond. Has a bit of lemon above an earthy background. The flavor is crisp and refreshing. The finish is dry. A very good summer thirst quencher. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
