brokensail (9940) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Banana, bread, and toasted malt. Nice pear, apple, and some hints of spice and yeast. Banana and bread flavor, some yeast, and a touch of spice. Very heavy on the apple and pear, sort of cidery. Kind of bland, but not bad.

BeerandBlues2 (9094) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - JUL 4, 2005
75 cL bottle, date unknown. This is number 500 and a rare find at that. Plenty of dust had accumulated on the bottle, but that did not dissuade me from purchasing. Pours a cloudy amber with orange hints and a huge off-white rocky head, that does not die easily. Great foamy and sticky lacing throughout. Oak and eathy yeast aroma with a light fruit nose. Sour and yet sweet yeasty flavor, some oak/must with a pleasant berry undertone. Hint of spicy yeast and malt combined near the end. Refreshing with lively carbonation and a dry light to medium bodied palate.

Sammy (8094) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 18, 2011
On tap at Cole’s. Cloudy yellow, lacey. As initially served too cold, it does not improve that much as rises to room temperature. Good drinkability, medium mouthfeel, very saison yeasty aroma. Malted, but not very complex.

Drake (7945) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 11, 2011
Served on draft at Mekong. Pours a hazy amber color with a large creamy offwhite head. Good head retention and lacing. Spicy, yeasty aroma with notes of stone fruits, citrus and lemongrass. The taste is stone fruits, yeast, spices, strawberry and faintly earthy, vegetal notes. Medium bodied. Nice.

GT2 (7884) - Carlsbad, California, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Tap at Smoke and Barrel in Adam’s Morgan DC. Thanks to Travlr! Pours a hazy light orange with with weak, white head. Estery apple and pear nose. Taste is soapy, watery, mild lemon, papery, astringent and tannic barley husk. Oversparged perhaps. Not a fan.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAR 11, 2012
On tap. Pours with a hazed light amber hue with a fluffy white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are juicy, estery, peachy, stone fruit, mild malt character, a bit musty and earthy with notes of damp leaves. Flavors are juicy with lots of fruity esters (notably stone fruit), medium earthy notes, and a touch of vegital DMS character. Medium bubbles, a bit sweet and flaccid.
