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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review from 6-30-12-
Served on tap in a tulip glass
Appearance – Served a hazy yellow-orange color with a billowy off-white head. The head had nice retention, eventually fading to leave a fair amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell was largely of wheat, spice, yeast and a lighter citrus aroma. Mixed with this were some aromas of green apple and a very light caramel smell.
Taste – The taste began with a sugary sweet and bready flavor with good hints of the citrus that was in the nose. With these flavors is a strong presence of a yeast flavor. As the flavor advanced, some spice came to the tongue with hints of a sour lemon/apple entering the scene. The sour got stronger more toward the end of the taste with the sweetness lightening some giving overall a a nice mildly sweet and sour spice flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The thickness of the beer was a little on the lighter side with the carbonation level being average to just above average. Both made for a very refreshing wheat style brew.
Overall – A very easy drinking and flavorful beer that is great for a warm day. While a little pricey for the quality it was well worth a try.

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.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange brown with a very persistent light brown head. . . Significant chunks rest in the bottom of my glass. Strong floral aroma with some juicy fruits like pears and grapes, along with some peppery spices, yeast and orange dough. Fairly bland flavour after a promising aroma. A slight mustiness, but that only gets me to the steps of the basement, where I don't go down. . . it just isn't that interesting, it the end it sort of feels like chewing on sweet grass.
