pkbites (694) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 5, 2010
Cloudy orangy pour. Smells bready/caramel like a bock. Smooth caramel flavor. Little malt/hops in the aftertaste. It’s rather nice.

emacgee (4138) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Thanks turdferguson for popping. Pours a cloudy peach skin amber with three fingers of creamy offwhite head. Nose is bready and malty, notes of biscuits and chamomile tea. Flavor is malt forward as well with bread and biscuity notes at the forefront with herbal and leafy hops. Full bodied and a medium crispness on the palate.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 1, 2010
Bottle from A Southern Season. Looks like a handwritten best by date. 4/16/12. Pours a glowing orange with a large frothy, white head. Nose shows some grain, dusty notes, hay--very malt heavy. Don’t much care for the flavor either. Grainy, dusty, dirty and just not my favorite. Carbonation level is on point, but I just don’t really like the flavor at all. Way too heavy on the malt, in my opinion.

durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUL 19, 2010
Bottle from Wine Authorities in Durham. Cheers, guys... and keep buying beer! Pour hazy dark golden orange with a generous white head with moderate retention and good lacing. Nose is subtly complex, with earthy hay, yeast, tart wood, white pepper, dust, and light fruits all making an appearance at various stages. Taste shows more malt characteristics and some nice caramel apple up front, but midpalate is tart and it finishes almost bone dry. I was unimpressed at first blush, but this is a beer that rewards if you sit with it for a bit. Lovely.

notalush (4992) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 30, 2010
A volcano of foam exploded from this bottle after I opened it - cloudy straw color, with an impressive, lasting, foamy head - lovely, subdued nose of wildflower honey and pale malt sweetness, marzipan, doughiness, light herbal character, a touch of earthiness - mild but refined flavor - starts off with the lightest touch of sweetness - prickly but pleasant carbonation - dries out quickly - light notes of cracked, toasted wheat, and moderate earthy, cobweb character - a slight tanginess, bordering on a subtle sourness - ends crisp and bone dry, with a mellow spiciness - VERY subtle, but give it some time - take a few sips - you’ll get it.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2010
Poured a hazy golden color with an off-white head. Lemon wheaty aroma with a yeasty nose. Mild pepper notes. The flavor had a malty start to it but it was short lived. Yeasty spicy finish. Light finish with a light taste overall. Prickly CO2 on the tongue.

(750ml bottle, BB 24/11/09) Pours a cloudy golden body with a medium white head. Aroma of freshly ground raw grain, orange, nuts, wet leaves, and grass. Flavor of citrus, yeast, earth, herb, florals, and grass with a somewhat dry finish.

( 750ml bottle best by 11/24/09 thanks to bu11zeye) Pours cloudy yellow with nice head, and good lacing. Nose of bready yeast and spices. Taste of coriander, earth, cilantro with a creamy and well carbonated finish.

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2009 Bottle, bb 12/02/11. Pours copper with lively head. Mild earth and spice, aromatic herbs in the aroma. Flavor is textured grain, lightly sweet, mild caramel. Beautifully balanced malt-hop finish. Great farmhouse type beer.
