KingPinHead (390) - Des Moines, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2002
UPDATED: APR 6, 2003 Nice golden hue with large creamy head--patchy spotted lace...Aroma is at once perfumy-sweet and lightly hoppy--an unusual combination, to say the least! Hops enter the taste door first, followed by a soft flowery sweetness...Controlled carbonation adds a spritely quality to the balance...Body is medium-light, and while there is a some counterbalancing of elements, these elements don't quite mesh together...However, this is most interesting for its floral profile...

Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with a big foamy head. Floral hop aroma with a bit of hay smell also. Medium body. Spicy malt taste.

UselessGdTaste (365) - Long Beach, California, USA - MAY 13, 2007
Smells very heavily of sunflower seeds and peanut shells. Could be good if it didn’t have so much of that going on.

footy (345) - scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 20, 2007
8/17/05. 750ml. best by Oct. 2004. Clear golden with small off white head. Light yeasty aroma. Heavy malt backbone with tart ending. Slightly flat.

humulus (339) - Salem, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Clear and golden, like apple juice. Light fizzy head. A little skunked and possesing a bitter cardboard flavor. Slightly sweet with a light caramel character, otherwise just a light, country ale. Yeast is a bit cloying. Overall, interesting but too many adjunct flavors to be deamed fine. Tastes of floride or heavily treated city water.

Cable (286) - SE, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 3, 2005
Sampled from magnum bottle. Pours a clear gold with a nice white head and remarkable lacing. Aroma has notes of sweet pears and leather. Flavor is spicy and very floral, almost like a rose water, with juniper. There is a tartness that may have been imparted by wild yeast. Medium-bodied and well-carbonated. Exceptional farmhouse saison. Welcome this is a farmhouse - Phish.

KarmanGhia (276) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2005
This is basically a Belgian Ale, similar to 3 Monts or Grimbergen. Perhaps the acidicity is higher and the bitterness stonger but more brief. These taste like liquid baguettes.

iambeer (255) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2005
The lack of alcohol taste was a good rate, espeacially with 7.5 %. Good head retention, and nice lacing. It was very drinkable and really nothing seemed to be off, but it just didn’t appeal that much to me.

norsedoc (248) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2010
Cloudy gold beer with a small grayish head which disappears quickly. Nose is yeasty, musty, and a little pear. Soft beer, slightly sweet malt flavor with little hop presence. Quick finish.
