COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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!

Little to no aroma, what is there is reminiscent of Belgian ales. Good, but somewhat bland.

12 oz draft pour at the brewpub in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a slight haze golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is bright fruit hop along with fresh floral Belgian yeast. The taste is a nice blend of the fresh clean fruit hop, light cracker malt and the floral Belgian yeast spice. The palate is light bodied with active carbonation and a dry finish with Belgian yeast that lingers nicely. Nice one.

arminjewell (8478) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, herbal, and floral hops, slight orange, white fruit into a bit of biscuit, sweet vanilla. Taste was a mix of grass, herbs, some earth into a bit of floral, orange hops, slight white fruit, finishing with some spice, slightly bitter but pretty sweet.

A gold ale with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, beautiful candy sugar malt with citrus hops, floral in character, alcohol warmth. In mouth, a nice fruity malt with floral and citrusy hops, well done. On tap at brewery.

brokensail (12503) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 21, 2014
On tap @ Haymarket. Golden pour with a white head. A bit of tea, floral hops, and a bit of melon. Some pear, peaches, and a nice bready note. But, lots of sugar/caramel. Flavor is just too sweet for me. Tons of fruit and sugar notes. Big caramel, bread, and peach. Canned pears, floral hops, and a touch of tea leaf bitterness.

nuplastikk (4953) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Tap at Haymarket. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, steady oily white head. A really pleasant, well executed beer. Big hop and yeast tones, but a subdued malt backbone creates a smooth nice balance. Melon hop tones, maybe some amarillo. Nails it, well done.

Dfonorow (1715) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 19, 2014
On tap @ Haymarket. Hazy yellow with a white head. Aroma and flavor of dry hops, toasted grain, pretzel crumbs, floral, and wheat. Finish has a bit of caramel sweetness.

Dogbrick (9181) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of fruity yeast, hops and earthy malt. The finish is malty up front with a mild citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

kaser (3791) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Poured from draft at Haymarket Brewey in Chicago. Orange and clear. Sweet lemon and grass aroma. Fruit and citrus taste. Slight hops. Very good for a Belgium which I usually don't like
