3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Naked City, Seattle
Cloudy pale blond color. Wonderful aroma tropical fruits and some citrus, probably coming from Citra hops, orange flowers too. Dry mouthfeel; the flavor is slim, nevertheless there is some pleasant crispy character, with strong hopping, citrusy, some grapefruit too; the final is extremely dry.
A very pleasant offer for the summer.

Saw this listed as pale lager. Interesting. Well... lightly fruity nose, a little grain, light hop presence. Pleasant, albeit soft. Pours light golden, thin head. Flavor is light and fruity with a touch of grain, a hint of yeast, light bitterness. Straightforward and sessionable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at stadium brewery. Pours a slightly cloudy, but light blonde, minimal head. Definite belgian yeasty aroma that comes across as slightly spicy, doughy pilsner malt, and a mixbag of lemony, citrusy grapefruity aroma. But it’s definitely a belgian. Seeing the list of all the hops one would assume that this would have a heavy hop note to it, but the yeast really comes through more than the hops. Dry finish almost lands on the side of astringently lemon peely and peppery. Kinda like a saison...kinda.

Draft at Elysian with Linh. Pours a bright hazy golden yellow with no head, some spotty white lacing. Aroma is citrus fruits - orange and lemon, and light funk and yeast. Mouthfeel is dry and slightly bitter with notes of citric hops, clove, spice and dry grainy yeast in the finish.
