videofrog (57) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Notes from 10/7/11: Poured 750ml bottle into pilsner glass. A: Golden-honey colored with large fluffy white head that settles into a nice rim that sporadically laces down the glass. Bit hazy from the yeast. S: Clean, fresh. Lemon hops, wheat, and a faint sweetness hit the nose. T: Taste follows the nose. Bready malts with the wheat. Lemon/citrus hops are great. M: Light, but not thin. Very drinkable and refreshing. I wasn’t careful enough toward the end of the bottle to avoid the yeast sediment. O: Another winner from Jester King. I found this to be a great summer brew alternative to a Hefe. This hop-forward wheat beer is something different in a very good way.

Bart (2941) - Brussels, BELGIUM - SEP 30, 2012
75cl Bottle @ RBBSG, Courtesy of 77ships. Hazy yellow coloured beer with some light carbonation and a small white head. Yeasty light fruity complex aroma. FUll palate. FInish is again some yeasty wheaty fruity touches (almost like hint of blackbarries). Not bad.

77ships (3546) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2012
750 ml. sampled @ RBBSG 2012. At first feared that this might be a tad of, perhaps too old for such a light beer and there are evidently no dates on the American stuff but this was still mighty fine. Hazy orange with a huge white head. Lots of hops in the nose, very fruity, exotic fruits, pine apples, mango, cloud berries,... taste is white bread, lovely exotic hops, quite fruity, mango, pineapple, very fruity yeast, touch cloud berries, light bitter, touch floral in the back, quite zesty as well. Very easy to drink, mighty fine stuff.

Suttree (5013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 22, 2012
And another fantastic brew from Jester King, this one with help from Mikkeller. Cloudy yellow, big white head. Smells nice - lightly floral, with some rose and lavender. Taste is mildly sweet with some notes of pepper and dry, woody hops. Thanks to rougeau13 for the trade!

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2012
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange body with a huge foamy white head. Lovely. Aroma is floral grassy soapy hops, light malty tones and hints of citric peel. Taste is sharp, dry and bitter citrus tones, mainly grapefruit-like but also a bit orange-ish. Hints of wet leaves and herbs in the back. Dry finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Nice an fresh beer for sure, which definitely gets up the "one more"-finger in the bar if I’m there. :-)

bleeng (1496) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2012
750 bottle. Pours bright yellow with a nice thick white head. Nice mild hop nose-mellow. Taste is very mellow hops that fade on the end. Pretty one dimensional but not obtrusive. thins out on the end-profile doesn’t go to the end. Session beer-take it for what it is.

Beerenberger (1368) - Fischer, Texas, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Aroma is citrus & a hint of sweetness. Pours a hazy yellow with a mostly diminishing rocky white head and good lacing. Taste is initially rather mild but the taste builds to a strong grapefruit finish and aftertaste. Medium-light bodied and fizzy. Overall, a refreshing drink for the sunbelt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
