3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a small, off-white head. Lightly citrusy nose with a touch of yeast and maltyness. Some spiced notes. A bit on the grainy in the flavor, but quite pleasant anyway. Citrusy hints, spices notes and a generic fruityness too. Rather thin on the palate, as expected, dry and also a bit heavy on the carbonation. Some bitterness chiming in towards the end. A quite wonderful low alcohol beer, well suited as a lawnmower beer or as a thirst quencher. Gimme more. 120818

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy yellow with good, foamy, white head / Delicate, perfumey nose of lemon, tropical fruit, and straw / Watery, although this may be part and parcel of what this beer is intended to be at 2.9 abv, acidic and crisp, with good, bitter finish / Weak but excellent flavors of lemon, passion fruit, bread, and straw / Near beer? Seems like a beer in search of a market that doesn’t exist. Boost the body, and probably the abv, and this would be excellent.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2012 Bottle, compliments of Keith with Simon and Mike. Pours a very hazy murky golden color with small to med head. Aromas of yeast, bready malt, and citrus hops. Taste is lemon citrus, yeast, spicy rye, ash, chalk, astringent grains. Very dry and aggresive on the throat. Peppery as hell. Kind of hard drinking for the 2.9 percent. Not my thing and a little pricey for me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Very light and refreshing. Mild taste, very balanced - but I wouldn’t mind a stronger version. Saison-like taste.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Best low ABV beer ever courtesy my July Secret Santa. Thanks! Aroma was big and full. Strong noble hops and yeast smell. Like a good saison. Pour was a beautiful hazy light yellow. Almost no color at all. Small white ring for a head. Taste was very full for a low ABV beer. Great balance of the noble hops and farmhouse yeast. Near perfect actually. Nice carbonation. Very complex beer. This beer opened my eyes to the fact that a beer can be low ABV and still be delicious. Would love to find more of these.

Trade from rougeau13 - thanks!Cloudy yellow, thin white head. Smells like freshly baked bread and lemons. Slightly watery, but kind of works here. Flavor is a rather yeasty, with some citrus notes. Nicely flavorful, and only 2.9%...

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle received from Errl. Thanks! Pours a hazy yellow with a fizzy white head of foam. Great retention. The aroma has a ton going on with estery notes, earthy hop profile, some malty bitterness. It reminds me a lot of what would happen if you brewed Hefeweizen that and a Saison yeast. Taste is mildly sweet and estery while keeping its verge of bitterness going throughout. This beer is actually really good. Highly recommend trying it if you get the opportunity.
