ZBF 2008: Hazy gold, with a good off-white head. Aromas of citrus, wheat, slight lactic sour, bubblegum and banana. Low earthy and grassy hops. Flavorwise there is first a quick shot of citrus followed by hops and then green wood. The hop character is strangely sweet. Then comes cane sugar before a more earthy hop character comes through. Those hops take you into the finish with some banana-bread.

750 pours out a hazed golden with a decent head that clings for a short time and spotty lace. The aroma is yeasty, fresh bread, spice, lemon, and slightly floral hops. The flavor is of light malt, some ale fruitiness as it warms, dry - however there is some sweetness that dances around, hops in the finish, and rather understated, but in a nice and refreshing way. The palate is quite refreshing, fizzy, and clean. Overall, this is quite the hot weather beer. Not for the Minnesota winter, but still good.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 7, 2008
Pours bright golden with a mostly maintained fluffly off-white head. Aroma is yeasty and herbal: notes of pear, peaches, bubble gum, lemongrass, and fruity hop resins. Taste is herbal, notes of chamomile, noble hops, pineapple and pear. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with lush carbonation. Very nice Belgian beer. I love the balance between the esters and the hops.

IMtheOptimator (1162) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Poured a cloudy amber with a fizzy/frothy white head. Light aroma of butter toffee, lemon, coriander, a bit of piney grassy hops. Flavor follows with similar lightness with light toffee, a bit of grass, a dash of lemon, a bit of fruit and some light generic spiciness. Body is soft and light. Refreshing for sure, but I think it could have withstood a bit more complexity without sacrificing its refreshing character.

Slayer85 (1051) - Firenze, ITALY - JAN 31, 2008
750 ml bottle. A cloudy orange beer with a medium sized and disappearing white head. Fesh hop nose with notes of flowers, grass and fruits. Some yeast and malt too. After smelling this, seems incredible this is made with American hops. The flavour confirms the expectations of the aroma, that is a hoppy beer, very flowery and grassy that seems to walk in a garden. Here the American hops are lightly more recognizable. Citric fruits notes. I agree that has some resemblances to a Saison. Light body, lively carnbonated, dry finish with medium bitterness. Very flavourful for such a low ABV and extremely drinkable. Refreshing and quenching, the ideal for Summer.

Bottle@Home. Red grapefruit aroma. Hazy, yellow color, off-white head, fair lace. Light sweet, bitter, grapefruit, fruity overall. Light sticky and light dry. Flavorful, complex yet easy. At first I liked it, half way the bottle I wanted much more.

watchnerd (22) - San Mateo, California, USA - JAN 12, 2008
Aroma is very pilsner-like, not at all what you expect from most Belgian ales, and without much fruit or citrus elements. Cloudy, almost like a witbier, with a minimal head and llittle lace. Very dry. If you’re looking for a Belgian ale interpretation of a Pilsner, this should suit you. If you’re looking for a more typical Belgian taste, best to look elsewhere.

weeare138 (936) - Collegeville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Appears a hazy, straw toned gold with a huge, fluffy white head that retains for several moments before fading into a clumpy cap and a thick collar and sticky lacing. Smell is of floraly perfume with yeasty, light earthy hops, and heavy hitting citrus that I wasn’t expecting. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with some lemon zest and dried orange peel with some spices pulling through and a ton of bready yeast that seems to stick on the palate. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit overcarbonated, slightly astringent, semi-dry, and too hoppy and yeasty without much balance to me.

beerbiere (101) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2008
Cloudy golden brew with a huge compact head. Fragrant nose of lemon and resiny hops. Good balance of hops, very refreshing, finish is slightly dry. Palate is expansive for a brew of 5%. Very well done, refreshing, yet complex. It is really is estivale (summer)!
