COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A tribute to the highly drinkable ""every day"" beers from French-speaking Belgium. Contains Belgian two-row pale malt and 7% wheat. This beer is lightly filtered with an earthy, spicy hop character from imported Styrian Goldings hops and a beautiful rich creamy head from the wheat. Dry quenching finish achieved by use of the traditional sour mash process

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 Bright golden. Toasty, herbal, spicy aroma. Clean yeast character, faint pale malts and a little bit of spiciness. Also some yeast and minerals. Quick, refreshing.

Old notes (2000: Beige with a spicy, yeasty-fruity aroma, the carbonation is spritzy but forceful, and the palate showing the malty-yeasty-spicy combination of a grisette, but lighter in body. 7 3 6 3 14 = 3.3

on tap-a nice golden color. A white head that reduced to minimal. Aroma-hoppy, flavor-hoppy. Towards crisp/dry. Not complex, nice.

bhensonb (10808) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours dishwater gold with a slight white head. Aroma is light light pitted fruit with a hint of yeast/spice. Med body more or less. Flavor is lightly bready, slightly fruit, dusty/wheaty. Spicy - not to my tastebuds. Summer beer it is.

brokensail (10645) - Orange County, California, USA - MAY 19, 2011
A: The beer pours a lightly hazed golden orange color with a tall white head. S: Lemon zest, banana, and bubblegum make for a very...interesting aroma. Light breadiness from the malts with a moderate sweetness. Hints of pepper and other spices. T: Sweet pale malts with some light bready notes. Pepper and earthy flavors are present as is a hint of banana. Lots of lemon, particularly lemon zest, with a little bit of tartness to it. M: Light to medium in body with a medium level of carbonation. O: Not nearly as bad as their IPA that I had before it, but still not a fan.

daknole (8946) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUL 11, 2011
Lightly hazy yellow pour with a big, fizzy white head. Lots of carbonation in this one. Lemons, yeast, grass, and coriander aroma. Flavor is lemony up front, followed by some coriander, yeast, bread and a very light bitter finish. Pretty good.

hopscotch (8905) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 20, 2003
Sparkling clear, very light, straw-colored beer. The quickly disappearing head leaves fair lacework. A mild brew in both aroma and flavor. A touch buttery with hints of butterscotch and grass. Light-bodied with a watery mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. Call it a Saison if you like, but to me it tastes and feels like any other mild British style brew. Absolutely not spectacular. Refreshing, though. Brewed to be enjoyed during the hot Summer months.
