Our ode to Oscar Neebe, yeast saleman, friend of the brewer and one of the three to survive the trial of the "Haymarket Eight". A straw colored Belgian ale dry-hopped with Amarillo hops. A great session ale!

4oz sampler from the brewpub, ultra fresh. Pours a cloudy yellow with a moderate white head. Aroma of orange, caramel, lemon, and Belgian yeast. Flavor of orange, yeast, herbs, grass, pepper, and light brett with a dry finish. Easy drinker.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2011 4oz sampler at the brewpub... Pours a cloudy somewhat murky orange hue with a rhin to medium creamy white head... Aroma hefe type of yeast character with banana bubblegum and very light on the hops... Flavors are much of the same earthy somewhat green with Belgian yeast profile, somewhat muted in nature with very little hop bitterness coming through. Carbonation is semi-lively with a light to medium body. Flavors are somewhat muddled but I think they’ll work out the kinks with the brewing system soon to sharpen things up.

Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pete’s first beers. Pours a murky hazed bright golden hue, a big offwhite head laces very well. Dies to a film, aromas are wheat bread dough and touches of apple, banana, touches of spice, lemon, and light hops. Yeast spice and bigger bread dough. Initial is lighter bodied, pear and apple, decent citrusy hops. Lingering bubblegum, bread, decent bitterness. Mellow lingering sweetness, esters, light grassy hops. Mellow lingering esters really kinda sum it up with a touch of spice. This beer seems like it could have used some more time in the fermenters

Draft at Haymarket. The first of many from Pete’s new shop! Pours a very turbid pale yellow, appearance is closer to a witbier than BPA, imo. Nose is tangerine, sulfur & marmalade. More estery than phenolic. Smells green. On taste, solid structure, actually has fermented pretty well (though the sulfur notes pervade) and mostly clean. Taste is still a bit green. Pleasant bitterness, full body and a bit yeasty. More of the citrusy notes as well. This could be good, just needs a couple more days in the conical, I think.
