At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Murky light golden with a thick pillowy head like a Hefeweizen. Light estery aroma like a hefe too, kinda yeasty and biscuity with a touch of bubblegum..but also with this floral/grassy hop aroma. Taste is yeasty biscuit with a dash of wheat and bubblegum, with a hoppy flavor of grassy floral herbal bitterness. Like a hefe/IPA mix.

On tap. Pour is a great-looking cloudy golden yellow witty a smallish white head. Aroma is banana, fruit, mango hop, grapefruit hop, and faint spice. I did not know what style this was but I was guessing a hopped up wheat ale. That’s what it reminded me of. Also some notes of bubblegum. Very acrid as it warmed though. Make sure to drink it cold to avoid light notes of urine. That being said, I really enjoyed it while it was cold. Potent. One was plenty.

Draught at brewery night. Pale with decent head. Nose is quite lemon sour with some funk. Taste is banana and ripe fruit with cardamom. Slick mouthfeel with chalk and a bitter woody linger. Its an incongruous beer but one that is surprisingly good.

4oz sample at Waldo Pizza. Pours an opaque light honey. Aroma of citrus, grass, pepper, spice, coriander, lemon. Flavor is lemon, apricot, coriander, grass, spice. Good, but not for the price.

January 9, 2012 tap at Saucer. Hazy yellow orange pour with some head and lacing. Aroma is hoppy, citrus and fruity. Taste is pretty much spot on with aroma but throw in a little spice to finish.

750ml from Sam’s, Durham. Quite an opaque, borderline murky dark orange pour. Looks gritty, sludgy, and almost sedimental. The beer is generally more appetizing than this first impression, though, and it starts off with an appealing ripe nose of yeast, abundant dry hops, and citrus rind. Smooth mouthfeel, almost no heat from the abv. Taste is big and buttery from the Chard, which complements the yeast quite well, and the dry hops provide a pleasant contrast in the taste, along with a moderately spicy finish. I’ve certainly had better beers in this general style, but this one was solid.
