JohnnyMummbles (151) - Pitman, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2010
What can I say, this is an amazing beer! Poured from 330ml bottle a deep golden blonde ale with plenty of sediment when holding up to a light. A small white head that disappears quickly. Aroma of lemon zest, vanilla and banana. Flavor is very smoothe and full bodied at first than expresses a semi-sour finish. Palate is left with much vanilla and citrus. One of the best beers I have tried so far!

TheHopster (786) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2010
(11.2 oz bottle) Hazy mango color with hefty white head. Thin lacing. Well carbonated. Taste is malty-orange sweet. Considerable alcohol (9.8 ABV) is well hidden. An off-beat option I would recommend to explore.
