Poured on draft at gnome week at the galley. Pale hazy yellow with a rather frothy white head. Aroma is kinda odd yeasty wheaty. Not great in that regard. Taste grew on me with its wheat influence, but still just seems to be lacking something. Overall, good, but I don’t think Id bother with it again.

Slightly skunked smell, even slighter in the taste. Heavily malty, with 3 kinds of malts (barley, rye, wheat), but not sweet at all. Its dry and somewhat yeasty. Big rocky white head.

Draft. Hazy golden pour with white head. Light clove, banana, light fruit and yeast like aromas. Spicy flavor with Belgian mainstream tones, yeasts fruits and spices.

Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2004
Bright orange gold body, some haze, topped with a fluffy head, good lacing. Aroma is fresh herbs, spices (corriander). Taste is very summery and refreshing - bubblegum edges, spices, citrus fruits. Finish was excellent - very dry.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUL 2, 2002
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.

On tap at Proof. Orange-brown pour with white head and lots of stick. Aroma is Belgian yeast, corn, malt, caramel. Tastes are toasted malt, caramel, pepper, yeasty. OK.

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.

craftycarl21 (2134) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 19, 2011
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.
