Bottle. cloudy orange/apricot pour. fluffy white head. Hoppy aroma with yeast and honey. Mouthfeel is great but the flavor has less hops than the nose. But this is still delicious. Some bitter hops, apple, honey and some fruitinesss go well with some light spice. Very good beer, quite different.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle, thanks Daknole, was very much ISO...Gorgeous golden haze with gorgeous thick white head. Fruity tones lay groundwork for the bright grassy herbal hop overtones. Very floral aroma without becoming perfumy--nice. Has a little bit of damp earth or cheese in the aroma too, though. Smooth carbonation. Nice palate. A little bit of a sweet-sour thing going on. The bitterness is floating on top of a big layer of fruit. As if a fruit cake got smacked with hop icing. Citrusy finish. Very nice, interesting brew.

Oakes (13538) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2009
Fairly cloudy with a thin head. Very floral aroma with good yeasty spice depth. Some nice orangey notes from the hops. Very sweet, spicy character. Floral with a hint of bubblegum. Tasty.

750ml corked bottle shared by suzygreenberg. Pours a cloudy yellow straw color with a nice thick and lively white head that leaves a great lace as it drinks down. Sweet peppery apple nose with a touch of some other spices in there. Sharp carbonation and slightly bitter on the palate with great honey sweetness and some earthy floral hints. I think that this bottle had a bit of age on it and it was still great, but I would certainly like to try a ’younger’ bottle of this. Thanks for sharing this one Ben!

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Sampled during MN Gathering II in Maplewood and shared by MatSciGuy. From a 750 ml wine bottle pours a hazy golden blonde brew with plenty of white head that has great retention and lacing. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapple, apricots, some golden grain malt, flowery hops and dry herbs. Taste is medium bodied, some extra carbonation with flavors of pineapple, tangerines, apricots, white bread malt and a hint of green mint. Finish has a light mint and clove spice aftertaste that made this one stand out. Thanks Levi for sharing this terrific ale.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Sample enjoyed at Skyview tasting. Nice yellow pour with aroma of apricot and papaya. Flavor was pleasantly yeasty, bitter and finished a little dry. A very good brew. 3/2/13 Rerate. Less yeast, more light hay and dry lemon flavors. Really enjoyed this more than I remembered.

KAF (448) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Thanks Levi. Hazy yellow pour with a foamy off white head. Nice lacing. Spices, pineapple and hops on the nose. The spices and light fruits come out a bit more in the flavor along with some dryness.

Sampled at Skyview’s tavern. Certainly the first thing I noticed with this beer was the interesting shape of the bottle. Light golden pour. Aroma of pear, apricot, citrus, bread, and flowery hops. Finish was slightly dry. A pretty decent and well crafted brew. Enjoyable!
