hfmejias (788) - Dover, Delaware, USA - JUN 7, 2013
1 Pint 6 Fl. Oz, Bottle, from Dover Liquor Depot. Poured hazy golden minimal white head and minimal lacing. Aroma is quite fruity and malty with some grain/cereal notes. Taste is also very fruity (citrus flavors) and sweet but leaves a nice mild bitterness. Enjoyable and easy to drink, very nice.

Bomber from Whole Foods PM. Pours hazy dark straw with 1-finger white head. Nose is yeasty funky malt, hopcitrus, esters. Tastes very dry with hopcitrus, like a dry pilsner with some funkiness and yeastiness.

Pretty terrible Belgian or Pils or whatever. The chouffe yeast is wasted with the dominion water and incompitence.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 19, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light yellowish orange, hazy and resistant to light. Thin head. There’s a sweet, almost lemon-soapy aroma that’s not bad. The beer drinks with that as its forefront, with a definite Belgo-yeasty-fruity thing taking a predominate role in an otherwise easy-going, sessionable base. (#5257, 9/19/2013)

keanex (1493) - Atco, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Bottled May 2013.
Appearance: The body is crystal clear with a golden to orange hue. No head can be coaxed only a very sparse white covering.
Aroma: Slightly earthy with a fruity and spicy presence that I’m having a hard time figuring out, maybe some banana and clove, but hints of a slight chemical aroma.
Taste: Uh, not a good marriage of styles at all. It reminds me a bit of slightly sour milk in flavor. Ugh not enjoying this at all, very watery and what I do taste isn’t appealing. I don’t even know if I am going to finish this.
Palate: Watery, very light carbonation.
Overall: Oh boy this is just bad. I appreciate the effort in trying to reinvent a new style, but boy this came out bad. I wouldn’t drink this again if given to me for free.
