3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured by Ryan on a tour of the Lagunitas Brewery. From notes, July 30, 2012.
A: Delightful floral/citrus hops. Plenty of hops in here. Sweet light malt.
A: Pours a very nice deep golden color with about two fingers almost white head.
T: Sweet lemon citrus notes, caramel, molasses biscuity malt backbone. Pine-y crisp finish. Very bright colors, definitely a summer brew. Even a hint of alcohol heat. Some peppery notes in there too. More pale ale than wheat.
P: Clean, crisp, good carbonation and medium body, finished razor sharp.
O: Nice hybrid style here; very refreshing.

Purchased at my local Vas Foremost in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after doing some song writing while having NFL Football on in the background. Appearance is a bright, slightly clear gold with a moderate white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is rich in spice, Belgian ale yeast, light bready malt, light sweetness, very nice. Taste goes down easy for a sub 9% brew, smooth consistency, light spice in the back, bit of lemon as well. Good stuff.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours a clear gold with a white head. Taste belgian yeast, little hoppy, fruity. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Not sure why this is classified as a belgian, but tasty all the same! I don’t know about anyone else, but i get a sort of grilled pineapple-y-ness from this up front. Finishes nicely, with a pale or ipa hoppiness. Mouthfeel is somewhat lacking, but I could drink quite a bit of this brew.

Solid beer, caramel notes jump out to me. Light, buttery and easy to drink. I would buy again, probably wouldn’t brag about it though.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber gold with a thick white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, heavy malt and muted hops. Taste is slightly bitter and funky, malty with slight alcohol presence. Not bad
