Appearance: yellow clear with rough carbonation and a thin white head. Aroma is light and earthy. spices hay grass dirt Taste is light like the aroma with little sweetness Palate is thin and dry somewhat prickly overall: a good farmhouse ale not great by any stretch. Lacking a lot of the more pleasant esters and notes of a farmhouse ale, replaced by most of the backend notes.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2012
The aroma brings beautiful sweet wheat and grassy notes. The Belgian ale pours unclear golden with a light orange amberish hue and big creamy white head. The flavor brings the bitterness of the noble hops to the forefront with the Belgian yeast there but not dominating as usual.

jstraw (1964) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Hazy, yellow-gold with big, flotsam, white head / Bright, floral, delicate nose of lemon, grain, and spice / Light to medium body, acidic and lightly sour, lively carbonation, dry with just a hint of sweetness, excellent balance and bitter finish / Flavors of lemon, geranium, straw, pineapple, and coriander / Lovely, stylish, dry summer ale. Possibly a little light on the fruit, but I quibble.
