Prufrockstar (1089) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2013 Grapefruit, tangerine. Hay. Pine. Light yellow-gold color, hazy, white head dissipates quickly. Looks like a headless hefe. Taste is lightly sweet, moderate hop bitter finish. Pine, grass, and bread. Light body. Smoothe and drinkable. Overall: this would be great to session -- wish I had friends and a six-pack. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Picked up a bottle without noticing the date. Ended up being a year old. Pours a clear golden yellow with a full white head. Floral aroma with slight oxidation. Taste is slightly bitter and the "old hops" taste isn’t really there. Pretty good actually. Not the same beer but great base.

Danyel (1047) - Colorado, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Tap at Hair of the Dog. Pours hazy yellow with white head. Aroma is wheat, lemon, lager, lots of citrus. Taste is bitter, light, medium carbonation. Overall, good.

UDBeernut (1822) - Moving to Jax, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Hazy golden yellow, head leaves a thick lacing coat. Nose of pine, dankness. Taste has enough malt before a nice wave of bitterness that lingers well after finish. Slightly syrupy mouth. Cool beans dorks.

BiddleBrau (958) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Old bottle bought a case for $12... Went ’off’... more like funky. Hazy gold visible carbonation and thin white head. Noses must be in horse blanket. Flavor of a Belgian sour, funked out saison or gueuze. Tart and now a bit oxidized. Not a pale ale by a long shot but for $12 for a case, I got a decent american Belgian sour.

ARH (520) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Banana and citrus aromas come through in strength with some pine and grass notes. It pours a hazy yellow with a white, thin ring and a light, wispy surface. A light amount of head is retained and a very light lace remains on the glass. The tastr is a medium sweet medium and fairly high bitter. It’s oily and slick with a light fizz and medium body. It starts sweet and citrus with a finish that’s spicy and dry. It’s clean and crisp with a spice lingering.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2014 Finally! Its been almost a decade and I finally got to try a fresh, sampler at brewery. Well, eh fine but dull. Its hoppy, just bitter with a vague golden beer background. Very bitter at the end.

Big Bottle. Pours a golden color with one finger head. Aroma of crisp citrus and mild lemons, and light fruits Taste is light fruits with slight lemon peel citrus and grapefruit. Average carbonation. Quite refreshing. Not overly hoppy like some pale ales, but finished with a smooth bitter finish. Enjoyed.

dslam (59) - surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2014
Purchased as a taster at the breweries pub. Light amber color with minimal head. Fairly sweet aroma, but slightly lacking in taste. I think I should have tried this before the Adam and Matt.

Poured from the tap. Cloudy golden yellow with minimal white head. A little funky yeast with mild hops, mild citrus.

GenDV138 (1635) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2014
12 oz bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Cloudy apricot yellow with less than half a finger of off-white ring. Aromas of citrus, floral notes, bitter notes, tropical fruit. Tastes of grapefruit citrus, wheat, bitter notes. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Low carbonation. Not terrible but I’m not really feeling this one, bad batch perhaps?
