Tap at Barley Johns in New Brighton, MN. Very pale yellow pour with a clingy white head. Floral and yeasty aroma. Fruity, yeast, and floral/spice on taste. Very enjoyable.

Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - MAY 8, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 13, 2006 Pours a dirty amber color with a foamy head that lingers only briefly. The aroma is dusty and fruity, grapes and plums, with a bit of mildly sweet malts. The flavor is grassy and has some citrus flavorings, along with mayhaps a dash of honey. It’s got a dry, sour finish. I’m not sure what they were after here, but it’s an interesting drink.

Fredagsbaren på biologi, Aarhus Bottled Excellent summer ale - refreshing with high carbonation and lots of aroma hops. A hint of sweetness and fruit

SilkTork (5109) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 10, 2003
Like an average English Bitter, but with that strange vanilla horse blanket quality that Belgian beers have. There are some medicinal spices flying around, and a light hop bitterness. The malt base doesn't really make a strong appearance so this is certainly suitable for a summer refresher. There's plenty going on to keep up interest, but overall I wasn't impressed.

jredmond (5025) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Draft at rattle with streets. Pours a deep amber body with nice haze and no head, some minor lacing. Aroma is light spice and fruit. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated with notes of apple and prune. No thanks.

DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 29, 2012
On tap at Jackie-Os, $6 a goblet. Nice, hazy amber color. Creamy, cream-colored head leaving great lace. Nice texture, crisp and smooth carbonation, with a light body. Good zesty-sweet taste, a little bit of sour. Bready aroma, with a light spice slow crest, it’s complex and satisfying. Interesting for a 4.5% brew.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 21, 2011
Draught at TND: Aroma of must, slight blue cheese, light funk, and a hint of malt. Poured amber in color with a large, creamy, dense, milky, off-white head that lasted throughout. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of pale malt, hops, slight grass, grain, and a tiny hint of citrus. Light to medium body. Lightly dry texture. Pale malt, grain, grass, slight hop finish.
