chinchill (4270) - South Carolina, USA - DEC 7, 2014
12 oz can poured with a hazy, light golden body and a small head. Fruity and floral aroma suggests some dominance of Belgian yeast. The flavor follows but has some funk too and feature more light bready malt. Yeasty. Light body with adequate carbonation.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Can at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured cloudy, vibrant yellow with a thick white head. Lots of honey sweetness and malted grains that meshed with some nice yeast spices and esters. Quite a fruity character and a nice full body. Hints of citrus, bananas, apple juice, and dates.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Draft at Plan B West Hartford. Pours yellow with a thin white head that leaves trace lacing. Slight bitter spice note on the nose. Tastes like perfumed saison on the tongue. It’s got some bitterness on the finish. Eh!

TURDFERGUSON (4046) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Can shared by MrP00tz. Thanks pootzy. Pours hazy golden. Nose of candied and rotten fruits, yeast, and booze. Flavor is slightly sweet, fruity, light hops. A bit of astringency and sweetness in the finish. Not bad, not good. Ok, kinda bad.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2013
(can - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some mild spice and yeast notes. Sweet malts and spice at the front of the flavor with a peppery yeast finish. Thin and really easy to drink, especially for 8.5%.

jbruner (3999) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow from the can with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is sweet buttery grass and bready malt. Taste follows, a lot more grass and less bread, slightly bitter. Meh, at least there is no hint of the booze. A little bit of oxidation in there with the butter.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Thanks to Bob for popping the tall boy. Straw gold pour with moderate carbonation, mild sediment. Candi malts and grass in the nose, not much distinctive but inoffensive enough. Prickly palate complemented the dry finish well. Dry grassy hops accounted for most of the taste, not a bad thing. Decent brew.
