Prufrockstar (693) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Taster at HOTD. Pours murky gold, white head. Aroma: wouldn't say squash if I didn't know it was there, but it's in this. Aroma is surprisingly mild. Easy to drink, light body. Overall: interesting, nice, unobtrusive beer.

neepsntatties (1114) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 2, 2014
On tap at hotd. Colour...light straw with a thin white head. Nose...quite squash-like with bits of spice and yeast. Palate....lightly frothy with grain up front and squash all around the palate. The grain lingers across mid palate and there almost an anise like flavour now and then.

Gription79 (2158) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. Belgian hop aroma, estery, sweet pilsner malt. This is very drinkable, the sweet malts work well the yeast character, bready. This may be too drinkable.

Draft motherfucker. I knew I wouldn’t want to drink this after a few sips, that’s why I bought an entire glass full. It tastes like peach juice except at the very end, there’s a hint of throw up, reminding me that its not peach juice. Fruity & weird and the finish is less than enjoyable but I am drinking it because I’m cool.

Super hazy, funky light brown and gold coloured body with a very thin tan head. Aroma of mild squash and malts coming through with very little else, perhaps some sugar. Light-bodied; Strong squash and honey flavour up front with some lighter nuts and a bit of caramel. Light aftertaste with some earth, light squash and a mild sweetness. Overall, nice to try - very light and worth tasting, but not exceptional. A good alternative to some of the higher octane beers from the brewery! I sampled this pint on draught at the brewpub in Portland, Oregon on 25-April for US$4.50.
