Hopswagger (198) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
P: A shiny copper orange with a vivacious tornado spinning in the middle of the glass. Topped with a creamy layer of French vanilla colored head that hangs out for a while. Delicate clingy lacing cascaded along the edges. S: Green tea tannins, lemongrass, slight skunk aroma, peppery spice, Belgian yeast and burnt sugar. Phenolic presence with subtle bubble gum, cherry syrup and fruit rollups. T/M: Herbal infused light fruit cup syrup. Spiced rum soaked apples, flower petals, fresh grass, lime, yellow pear and hard cherry candy. A sugar dosed saison similarity. Moderate body that finishes dry and somewhat chalky. Lingering spiced alcohol. O: An interesting brew for sure. Complex and well blended. I have to say the tornado effect was the coolest thing I have ever since pouring a beer. I love the chance to try ancient interpretations of past beers. This was a real treat. Proost!!

VT (1666) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 9, 2014
750 ml bottle. Pours a veiled pale golden with a thick, creamy, resilient white head. Aroma is lemon, yeast, cake and vanilla. Flavor is sweetbread, orange, lemon, mint, peach and pear. Finish is a nice lemon-lime sting, along with some mint. Medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel, with average to strong carbonation. Extremely refreshing and so very easy drinking.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Thanks to Rogueone for sharing a bottle (as Posca Rustica). This beer pours a clear pale golden color with a medium thick foamy white head that recedes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and grain. Medium-bodied with flavors of grainy malt, earthy yeast and citrus. The finish is floral and earthy with a fruity yeast aftertaste. Above average overall.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Light fruity aroma with a hint of alcohol. Light flavor with notes of wheat, fruits, light spice and a touch of yeast. Sweet and fruity finish.

Bottle sampled at a tasting event. From notes. Herbal and citrus with a decent malt backbone. Pretty darn good.

DuffMan (7030) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle, under the label Posca Rustica, shared with Grippitis, Parksy, and a few others. Golden body, average white head. Sweet grainy aroma, some yeast, tinned pineapple. The palate is much the same-- grainy, perhaps even a touch corny, sweet pineapple juice. No "herbs and spices" as advertised, just quite a dull, simplistic golden ale. Not impressed.
