Certainly lightweight! The aroma is mellow, wheaty, very lightly fruited. The taste is, well, light and airy, sparkly fruit like a very mild champagne. Not unpleasant, just quite mild.

this is like a light belgian has some of the characteristics that one would expect from a belgian but in a weaker, sissier form. do not waste your time.

Draft at Churchkey. Pours a hazy dark gold with a smallish head. Nose holds interesting autumnal spice notes, orange peel, hay, some grassy hops. Flavor is similar but with increased bread and dough and a nice dry finish. Pretty good.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Dirty orange with big white head. Lots of floaties from sediment. Aroma a little sour with lots of yeast. Flavor very yeast almost farmhouse in a way, very dry spicy flavor present near finish. Probably a little old, but decent nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy and red with some swirling sediment. Nose is all nuts and light fruits...grape, pear, green apple. Taste is lively, carbonated and fruity. A very quick drying at the end (from the rye malt??). Nice aftertaste of grassy dryness and that odd Belgian yeast that makes it all "stinkybarn/buttercookie-like"

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy unfiltered peachy hued bread under a thin, tight white head which leaves light traces of lace in its wake.
Freshly sliced peaches and apricots. Cereal grains along the sides. Fruity spices. Curacao orange peel. Grains of paradise. Herbs and grass.
Smooth mouthfeel, light and fruity, refreshing. Delicate notes of fresh apricot, peach, and kiwi. Spice is more subdued than in the nose – a shadowy partner. Tropical fruit skins bitterness in the back.
Subtle is the name of the game here – subtle but not boring. Personally, I would prefer more oomph in the flavors present. That’s really the only part of this beer that is lacking. Don’t get me wrong though; I’d drink another if offered.

Bottle from Pailhead. Nice light brown colored beer with haze and chunky floaties. Nice rocky white head which leaves good lacing. Nice light aroma of malt, spices and yeast. Light bodied, well carbonated. Somewhat spicey in flavor with yeast stuff going on in the background. Refreshing and light beer with discrete flavors and aroma.
