This Belgian-style beer is golden in color, light in body and medium-low in malt aroma. Fruity esters dominate the aroma, while hop character, complex alcohols, herbs, spices and even clove and smoke-like phenolics are evident in the overall balanced beer. Malt flavor is low but provides foundation for the overall balance. Hop bitterness is moderate, carbonation is high and the spice of coriander added to the brew is evident. A small amount of sour or acidic flavors is in balance with the other components.

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2008 This one was easily the best they have on tap. Described as "kinda like Blue Moon," Poured a pale whitish yellow. Nose was spicey and citric. Had a nice body and tons of citrus tang, fruity and spicey and very clean. Excellent beer that gives me hope for these guys. Very nice.

Pours hazy orange with an off-white head. The aroma has semi-sweetness, tons of coriander, fruity malt and earthy yeast. Medium body that cloying with soft carbonation. The flavor is ultra sweet with bubble gum, pineapple and coriander. The finish somehow brings in even more sweetness. An okay beer overall, but the excessive sweetness keeps this for being what it could be.

Thanks to johnycorkscrew for this sample from the growler on Memorial Day. Pours a hazed orange with an off whte soapy head. The nose first reminds me of St. Athene. Lots of yeast and dough with coriander, apricots and floral hops. Sweet fruity flavors. Lots of apricots, fruit malts and dough with a dose of that coriander spice. The beer is a little watery and finishes that sweetness with a dry note. Ok for what it is, but it grew old kinda quick.

Pour is a dark murky brown with a big white head. Aroma is dough and yeast with some distinct hops. Flavor is very tart and citrus. They really went with the coriander with this one. Finish has some funk and mustyness but it is pretty light since this one is mosty about the citrus. Decent enough to try once.

On tap at the brewpub. The body was hazy dark gold with a bright white head. The aroma was a little funky with some grass and pancakes. There was also some nice caramel and black tea behind that funk. The taste was fairly funky with some pineapple rinds and corn. This had some almonds and was sweet overall. Pretty well made.
