This is a lovely beer. It’s labeled "extra hoppy". the hops are there but not overpowering. With it’s lower alcohol content and clean taste, it’s a wonderful summer beer. It’s light amber in color, the taste has a touch of citrus. It pours with a nice long lasting head.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 23, 2008
11.2 ounce bottle shared by csbosox. Pour is murky yellow with some orange patches. It almost looks wit like. White head with some lace. A little bit of a citrus note in the nose, but mostly herbal and spearmint. A little soapy as well. The flavor is a bit more earthy with citrus soap character. Pretty well balanced flavors to me, but the you get a long bitter finish. Light body with hight carbonation and a bone dry finish. A sixer of this nice little session beer would be nice.

csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - MAY 22, 2008
11.2 oz bottle, split with tjthresh. Served in a NB worthy glass a few minutes from the fridge. Aroma is herbal hops and a very light pils malt and candi sugar. Hazy straw color with a light bone white head. Taste is light orange and apple at first with a large amount of grassy, herbal hops flavor followed by a solid bitterness and a lingering pils malt sweetnes, herbal hops, and black pepper yeast character. Easy to drink. Certainly on the bitter side, but enjoyable nevertheless.

PorterPounder (6066) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2008
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 300 ml bottle. Murky, medium orange - peach-like pour - kind of glows - with a soft, silky white head. Lemony aroma - but overall kind of dull smelling. Flavor provides some lemony flavor as well with some faint spiciness and a bit of raw cake mix. Nothing else really jumps out. Very creamy, thick and rich mouthfeel. Odd little Belgian, looks and feels great - lacking in other areas.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle 0.33 l. Pours hazy orange with lacy white head. Fruit punchy nose with some banana and orange even. Some hayish hops there too. Flavor is citric and grassy/piney hoppy, in a light way with a bit of apricots and yeastiness. Very light and refreshing, yet tasty. A tad watery, but good.

This beer demonstrate that a beer can have a strong taste and dont need to be strong in alcohol.

afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - MAY 18, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden with a large long lasting white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of earthy and floral hops with notes of yeast and citrus. Taste is the same as aroma with a touch of grainy pilsner malt. Medium mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and a dry spicy finish. Very good.
