maekchu (1772) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAR 29, 2014
Can. Thanks to mike12da. Light sweet honeyish nose with a large dose of Belgian yeast. Hazy amber, slow carb rising. Mild maltiness, but yeast dominates, with some minimal bitterness in finish. Light well-balanced stuff. Okay.

12oz can shared by JohnGonk. Pours a hazy golden orange color with a thick pillowy white head. Aroma of orange zest, pineapple, hay, wheat, and coriander. Taste is much the same. Wheat, grass, citrus zest, yeast, and coriander.

A best of class golden ale. Aroma is initial barnyard, then settles down to yeasty. Very smooth, tasty, and drinkable. Lace map.

GTAEgeek (1063) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 24, 2014
12 oz. can, thanks to treebute. Pours a hazy, orange color, with a small, beige head and thick lacing. Butterscotch, orange peels, coriander, and wet grass. Herbal sweetness, with a smooth, but significant bitterness, and just a hint of spiciness. Heavy body, smooth, and lightly velvety. This is a nice, complex, and well-balanced beer.

novice101 (201) - - FEB 18, 2014
This is one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time, pours a hazy yellow with a large white head. Smells of yeast as well as some fruity tones, taste of a lot of fruit with some yeast in the background as well as some citrus. Finish is a bit dry, alcohol is hidden very well. Thicker mouthfeel that I would expect

JBPortland (460) - Portland, Maine, USA - FEB 6, 2014
12oz can pours cloudy toasted orange brown with 2 finger head. Nose is fruity belgian yeast and bready malt, spices, flashes of gingerbread. Taste is bready yeast, some cereal malt, grain, spices, cracker, bits of faint citrus. Finish is dry, bready, and slightly bitter spices, some subtle apricot, faint hop presence. Solid Belgian-style.
