Had this as part of a flight at Grumpy Troll in Mount Horeb, WI. A nice farmhouse. Orange and cloudy with white head. Fruity orange vanilla notes. Musty and honey aroma

Has some wheat and hay scents. Taste is rather bland, just some hay/straw taste like the scent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear straw color with a thick ring head and streaks of lace. Delicate taste of wheat and malt - most of the taste on the side of the tongue. Nice, light bittering keeps control. Pleasant, but so light on taste that it hardly keeps my interest.

On tap at Grumpy Troll. Unfiltered orange-brown. Thin beige head. Off burnt butter aroma. This one is pretty weak. Farmhouse Ale in the Spotted Cow tradition. Messy malt tones covered up with some odd citrus and honey tones. Doesn’t capture any style, just a bad mess. Off funky flavors, this a a clear miss.

Sampled at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma is full of grass and hay with a backing light flora note. Flavor starts with grains and hay and has notes of light fruit and grass in the finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Hazy light yellow pour. Very mild wheat and citrus nose. Watery palate. Taste was clove, coriander, and wheat. Slightly sweet.

This is a pretty weak bodied and uninteresting beer with mostly fruitiness and some spice.

arkurzynski (1725) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2011
Golden with slight haze. Light fruitiness in the nose, pale malts. Pretty sweet, with noticeable, but not overwhelming honey character. Not a whole lot going on.

Narnad (1495) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Very clean, orange golden color with a low white head. Aromas has the honey coming through nicely, mild sweetness, some light grassy notes late. Flavor has a hint of honey sweetness very early but then moves into a mild grainy and light grassy hops note late. Finish has a hint of hay. Body is very light with a only a slight sugary feeling. Overall a very well rounded beer.

On tap at the brewpub, honestly, I thought this was going to be awful and was very surprised, pours a clear golden with a nice white head and some lacing in the glass, aroma is very sweet with a touch of hops on the nose, the flavor has a decent amount of sweetness but there is a hop presence as well, not bad.
