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!

On tap @ the brewpub. Very hazy light yellow. Incredible aroma! Sammy says "It smells like a summer day on an island!" Guava, white grapefruit, summer flowers, wheat malts. Light, crisp, and dry, but bursting with flavour. This, to me, is a perfect summer session ale. Outstanding!

TheAlum (6487) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Peteís 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

nuplastikk (5254) - 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.

vyvvy (5009) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, fairly toasty malt and fruity Belgian yeast. It has a medium / full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma hops, bready malt and Belgian earthiness. The finish adds some spiciness and dough. Nice Belgian pale.

On draft at brewub poured a murky light yellow color, aromas of grass, caramel, light fruit and some toast. Flavors are the same with some nuts. Ok beer overall.

kaser (4571) - 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

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2012 draft at brewery. pours very hazy straw yellow with white head. nose is very yeasty and wheaty, some lemon, flavors are tart wheat, a bit puckering. Yeasty grainy, and very wheat forward., lemony and very mild pine notes, odd beer, not really drinkable. 2.5 2/12/12, rerate cuz Derek said it was so good. Itís true Pete has cleaned up or learned from his earlier batches as the yeast fermentation and hopping are working much better here. I still donít think itís amazing, ti Jean was way better but this serves a nice purpose being low alc and well hopped. Body is really thin. 8/5/12 another 12oz pour at the bar and Iím a pretty big fan. Thereís lots of flavor for 4.5% and $3.75. It really canít be beat. Clean citrusy, bitter, crisp. I could and want to drink this for days. 3.7

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.
