Bottle courtesy of adnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a clear yellow with big white head. Grainy, fruity, tart, peppery aromas. Ginger, pepper, fruity flavors. Interesting beer, a lot going on in this one. But it doesnít do it for me.

"A rather untraditionally full bodied pilsner. Dry bready and a bit sweet, with some grassy hops and hay and a slight tartness to make things interesting. Not bad. "

Poured from a bomber into a cute little flute glass. It is a cloudy, pale yellow with a ultra thin and bubbly white head. Smells first of funky/barnyard then of spices- pepper and cinnamon?, hard to say- then a citrusy scent. The taste is a new combination for me. There is a slightly tart front, pepper, light fruit taste and a great, highly carbonated palate. For some reason I want to say there is cinnamon in this brew but Iím not sure. Maybe it is the ginger they mention in the description.

Chalky blond and an effervescent white head. Tart, lactic aroma of bright fruit, ginger and pepper. Light to medium bodied with full flavor, still tart , but also malty and spicey. Nicely dry and lemony in the finish with just the right touch of ginger. I canít tell what the other reviews were complaining about, maybe it needed the full 6 months in the bottle. Itís like a tripel with apricot. This beer is tasty, complex and well-structured.

hopscotch (10645) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a mid-sized, wispy, white head. Great retention. The aroma furnishes lemon with subtle undertones of barnyard funk and spicy farmhouse yeast. Light to medium-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is mildly acidic and citrusy, but is a touch too sweet to really wrap my lips around. Finishes crisp and refreshing at first, then cracker malt sweetness lingers and nearly ruins the entire experience for me. More time in the bottle may improve this one... or not.

Bottle poured a cloudy blonde hue w/ large white frothy head diminishes to a nice thin cap and some lacing. Nice big aromas of pepper, earth, pineapple and citrus. Flavor is an initial light sweet and finishes with a light sour. Taste is lemon, ginger, leather, and apricot. Light bodied, dry texture, and lively carbonation. Has a thin mouthfeel.
