On tap at Beer Temple. Slightly hazy golden colour, dense white head. Aroma of yeast, funk, some dung, fruity, floral and a bit tart. Flavour is slightly tart, sweet, sugary, fruity, yeast, tart-bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not my kind of flavours, but not bad either.

bottle. slightly hazy golden in color with a small off white head. Aroma is tart apples, slightly sour and off, with some bready yeast and honey. Taste: has some tart, rotting apple and is quite dry. ugh, I canít finish this. As much as i respect Great Divide, I still havenít had a good Belgian from them yet. Hopefully that will change in the future.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.
