On tap at Beer Temple. Yellow body with huge head. Quite sweet and floral nose. Taste is also sweet, with fruits, tangy even, and also a bit spicy. Gets tarter towards the back.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 8, 2010
On tap at the Memphis Taproom. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin to medium sized white head. Smells of rubber bands and musk, with a light funk. Musky with some wheat coming through. Nice crisp finish and some earthy bitterness, but thereís a bit of plastic on it.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 7, 2010
12oz bottle (vintage 2010) into a tulip. Well... pour carefully. Even straight out of the fridge, thereís an enormous fluffy white head that fades quickly to half but sticks around. The beer itself is a nice cloudy yellow. The aroma is creamy, fruity, and spicy - almost like a wit. Definite hints of citrus and Belgian yeast. The flavor is sweet and tart up front but lingers dry with citrus.

poisoneddwarf (1622) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - APR 4, 2010
12 oz bottle into tulip. Aroma is of grain--you know, it kind of smells like a farm, minus the cowshit. Thatís a compliment. Simple, crisp, and refreshing. Pours a hazy light gold with minimal head or lacework. Keeps a collar of foam throughout. Taste is spicy, thirst-quenching, delicious. Iíve been on an Imperial Stout kick since September or so of last year, but these kinds of beers are becoming increasingly attractive to me. I donít know if itís just the longing for summer, or just the wanting of less heavy beers, but this tastes absolutely fantastic at the moment. It does taste very similar to a Belgian wit, like some other users have said. An extremely tasty wit if I must say so. Carbonation is high, agreeable. Kind of slick. I can imagine myself gulping this down by the case during the summer--if I could afford it.

beerfest5 (1064) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 3, 2010
another nice one from great divide, someone said it was more like a white than a farmhouse and i couldnt agree more. the first sip was so much like an alagash white that i had to take another look at the label and see if i read it wrong. delicious, and light with an incredibly dry aftertaste. nice spring ale, wouldnít mind if it was a tad less abv, a little too strong to enjoy more than a few at a time.

I love how so many styles are blending these days. I thought it would be more like an IPA, itís advertised as a Farmhouse Ale and tastes mostly like a Wit. Good mix of flavors, quality summer brew. Not too hoppy like GD tends to be. Def can taste the rice. Quite a bit like Hoegarden.

From a bottle poured a cloudy straw color with a good amount of head. Nice light grassy malty flavor with a quick finish.

Aurelius (3908) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
Meaty aroma with Belgian yeast and some sulphur. Foggy, pear gold with a small white head, OK label. Slightly lemony, mildly bitter, not sweet, some wild biotics running around in there somewhere. Citronella aftertaste, starchy, thin body, goes a bit flat. Market Square Liquors.

Teege (375) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 1, 2010
12 oz. bottle at redlight redlight. Pours light and gold with a white head and not much lace. Some earthy basement aromas, fairly herbal and a little floral in the nose. the flavor resembles a strong iced herbal chamomile/green tea blend mildly sweetened by honey, which iím not sure iíve had but imagine would taste similar. decent beer but could certainly stand to have some more going on.
