Draft sample. Poured clear golden color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate balanced sweet aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Soft drinkable brew.

Tap. Milky barley malt and hay aroma. Hazy golden yellow color with small head. Sweet honey and barley malt flavor with light bitter finish. Not bad - not spectacular.

Creamy, some wheat and buttery notes. a pretty easy-drinking brew. Not a huge fan though.

BBB63 (5740) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Tap: Golden hue with a nice frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of grassy and slightly citric hops, pale grains and some wheat bread, chalky yeast esters. The taste is rather straight forward mild malt tones and herbal noble hop bitterness with just a hint of citric acid. The mouth feel is moderately carbonated but not as clean on the finish as I would have hoped. A nice "session-able" beer but nothing earth shattering either.

6 oz pour at the brewpub (Sawyer, MI). Surprised Iíve never rated this actually. Pours a gentle hazy golden pour, well hazed, nice honey glow on the bottom and edges. A frothy bright white head atop stays as a filmy layer, mellow lacing. Aromas are clean, a gentle kiss of earth and florals, mellow clover, touch of honey, dough, and gentle cleaner sweetness. Initial is medium bodied, maybe a touch lighter but a firmer body for the style. Some clover, earth, decent dryness and mellow bitterness, faint spice. Middle shows a bit of the body, gentle florals, some graint and cereal malt, touch of honey, dough, and sweeter bread is subtle. Backend is a touch more dry, gentle carbonation, much firmer dryness than Iíd expect here but also a touch girthy, so I guess itís trying to do it "bigger". Finish is gentle honey, mellow apple from the middle pushes on. Earth gentle dryness as more sweetness, malt body kinda clings and finishes. Gentle spice. Solid stronger Golden/Cream. Not bad.

On tap at Greenbush brewpub. Straw yellow with a white topper. Aroma of sweet malts, citrus and a faint hop presence. Taste is sweet and citrusy with a bit of noble hops and pale malt to go with it.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Sampled at the source... Golden hazy orangey lemon hue and topped with a thin wispy white head... Wheat, banana, and citrus in the nose. Mild... Belgian with styled brew with hefe yeast, bananas, and oranges. Shy of medium bodied with semi-prickly carbonation. Ok.
