Dogbrick (7627) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Sample at the Clybourn brewpub. Hazy golden color with a medium foamy white head that burns away steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, yeast and malt. Medium body with flavors of zesty orange, biscuit malt and yeast. The finish is mildly spiced with a citrusy aftertaste. Above average overall.

Ughsmash (7097) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011
On tap at Madison’s. Poured cloudy medium golden with just a dusting of white head. The aroma picked up lemon and grassy notes over soft pale and bready maltage.. well-balanced and enjoyable. The flavor found honey and redder fruits at the core, with lemon and Pine-Sol-inspired hop accents.. spruce and related spices in there too.. dry, bitter, earthy finish. Medium-bodied and dry on the palate.. not great, but a decent drinker.

phaleslu (6278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Draft served in one of those Goose Island logo wine glasses at the iTap-Soulard Goose Island Stout Invasion. I guess it’s a beer glass, but whatever. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is really dusty and dry, with notes of pale and bready malts, mild spice, coriander, citrus peel, and green tea. The flavor amps it up a little bit in all of those notes- really herbal, fresh, and crisp. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. I liked the taste of this a lot.

Tap at Kellehers in Peoria. Clear ligh golden pour with a white head. Belgian yeast, coriander, and citrus. Not overly carbonated. Yummy.

TheAlum (5555) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - APR 24, 2011
Sampled on tap at the GI Invasion Event at SmallBar Fullerton (Chicago, IL). Pours a nice well hazed golden pour, with small frothy bubbly. Touches of big citrus rind, honey, and touches of yeast. Bready dough, some honeysuckle. Gentle. Initial is lighter bodied, maybe into medium with vibrant citrus, honey, bread dough, light yeastiness. A good lively citrus flavor dominates, tangerines and lemon rinds, touches of yeast, bread dough, and malty breads. A lively citrus and lighter body than expected. Touches of coriander, citrusy hops mesh well into the bigger rind and provides a decent bitter finish. Good Belgian with a great citrus rind influence, a touch of spice, flavorful yet light, spritzy lightly acidic citrus bursts. Not bad, a bit sweet. Could be more dried out.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 9, 2012
On tap at Goose Island Clybourn. Served in a sampler glass. Pours a golden-yellow color with a big white head and some lacing on the way down. The nose carries some mild spice and citrus peel. Very light hop notes in the background. Flavor has spice and light malt plus some citrus and fruit. Body is light-medium with high carbonation. Pretty good, though nothing stands out all that much.

Strykzone (4811) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2012
On tap at itap Soulard during stlcbw. This was hazy golden and had a decent white head. Belgian yeast is so nice here and a bit of spice is tasted. Pale malts, wheat, and citrus all combine to make a delightful summer beer. Bitterness was almost nonexistant.

nuplastikk (4289) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 26, 2013
Tap at Alchemy. Filtered looking yellow-tan. Thin head. Really smooth and balanced. Nice lime dominated citrus depth. The tea shines as well, mellowing the whole affair. Vanilla, honey tones, very sessionable, clean, delicate...but still manages to have some of that spice bomb thing going on. Great palate, OK beer.
