JohnRMurdoch (3398) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 17, 2011
Bottle from Appellation Wines. Hazy yellow amber colour, not much head. Sour grassy malt aroma & flavour, bitter aftertaste. Not really my sort of beer.

Skinnyviking (7231) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2011
Bottle. Low fluffy quickly disappearing white head. Slightly hazy light yellow body. Very sweet fruity honey like aroma. Fruity mild light spicy flavor. Low carbonation. Long aftertaste.

Poured into a snifter. Bottled 5/18/11. 3.5 A: Lightly hazed golden wheat color Three fingers of frothy white head. Retention is average to good and moderate amounts of irregular lacing is left. 3.5 S: Saison like in nature. Dry, pulpy funk with lots of apple orchard and rotting log. Also flowery, though more along the lines of herbal. Malts offer a touch of sweetness and some bready graininess as well. Hay and wet grass. Quite pleasant. 4.0 T: Again saison like. Flowery and herbal. Not nearly as funky as the nose suggested though. Still, good amount of earthiness with apple orchard, hay, grass, and a light woodiness. Malts are again lightly sweet with bready and grainy aspects. The yeast adds a small contribution of spiciness. 3.5 M: Lighter body. Moderate carbonation, though not as spritzy as I’d like. Still, this is smooth and the ABV plays no role. 3.5 D: I don’t know that I’d buy this again, but I did enjoy it. A good earthy, rather dry saison-esque brew.

TBh this was on sale and is discontinued. I always passed it up because it just didn’t seem appealing. But after trying this one it isn’t bad. Very tropical for sure. Maybe it was the packaging...

Thanks to a77cj7 for sending me a couple of bottles of this. The beer pours a light yellow color with a white head. The beer is fairly hazy. The aroma is full of wheat and biscuit malt, with some nice orange citrus notes as well as some Belgian yeast notes. The flavor is also very nice. Up front I get a lot of juicy orange citrus notes. The flavor is fairly sweet, with some nice biscuit malt and Belgian yeast also mixed in. The alcohol is well hidden and the beer is easy to drink. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2011 22 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Saw this new version was being retired so I had to grab one. Pours a bright, somewhat hazed gold with a finger of white head. Aroma of pale and sweet malts, crackers, herbs, straw, and sugar. Flavor of sweet malts, cereal, spice, dry bread, and herbs. Light-medium bodied with medium carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Solid but not on par with the other Belgians from Goose Island. Guess that is why it is retired.

Just picked up a 22 oz. bottle at my local grocery store, after I heard Goose Island had retired this beer. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. What little head there is sticks around, Aroma is not that bizarre: mostly malty. Taste is sweet with a bitter finish. Medium body and slightly oily texture. I’m glad to say I tried it but will keep looking for better Belgian style ales.

Fine Belgian inspired ale with good hops. Slightly pungent beer with little too much acid.
