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!

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.

vyvvy (4737) - 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.

Going to have to assume this is what was being poured under the note "Belgian Pale " at the FoBAB documentary party on Jan. 10. Malty pale ale smell. Not much hop in the nose, but then thereís a tangy, hoppy taste to it. Like its cousins Orval and Maltida, has over savory components that set it apart from the average pale beer.

kaser (4183) - 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

Dogbrick (9660) - 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.

Lubiere (11237) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2014
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.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2012
Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a tiny white head that didnít retain for very long. Aroma was some citrus hops, bubblegum, grass, and malts. Flavor was citrus, with some bread and yeast. Dry bitter in the finish. Good beer.
