COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who is qualified to judge one's contribution? Is it the pure Wisconsin barley malt or shall credit be given to traditional German and English hops? Maybe it is the Belgian Monastic yeast or the Brewer's tender care? Combined, this is a sophisticated Abbey style ale. Both elegant and drinkable this ale is cleanly aromatic with spicy notes of clove and ginger. Crisp and fragrant up front while gracefully sliding into warm malt notes at the finish. Fermented natually in this bottle, the beer in your hand is a living testament to the value of many working together to create something bigger than the individual parts. Moving a mountain begins with a single stone.

Appearance is light golden with a thick white foam cap. Aroma is dominated by the spicy clove of a Belgian yeast with slight malt. Taste is a light bready malt giving way to an assertive clove and citrus character. Also a distinct honey-like sweetness. Mouthfeel is medium and somewhat creamy. Finish is a well balanced hop bite, with spicy clove lingering on the tongue

Thanks to HisBoyElroy. Pours a transparent gold color with a white light minimal head. It has a light lemon cough drop aroma. A very light flavor. Very drinkable. A big wheat flavor with some malty spice. A unique brew.

Several year old bottle (around 2010) pours slight hazy orange gold. Nose slightly sour, tart fruit, mild floral, some sweet malt. Taste Belgian sweet up front, light citrus, then some continued sweetness. Fleeting spice, but fairly well balanced for an older bottle.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear gold with a finger of white head. Aroma is fruity with some spicy Belgian yeast. Taste is light sweet and follows aroma. Yeasty. Full bodied with a somewhat thick and creamy texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Pretty good.

Reviewed from notes: aroma has spice, floral notes, and citrus. Spice on the palate which is balanced nicely by the spice. Malty on the finish.

Light gold, white head. Clove, sweet smelling breadiness. Some small amount of fruitiness. Slightly sour, bitter. Predominantly malty sweetness. Mid body, small amount of carbonation. Really pleasant mouthfeel. Nice, quite malty for a Belgian ale. Well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

joeneugs (3175) - Livermore, California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
12 oz. bottle. It pours a hazy yellow color with a dense white head. Lots of streaming bubbles. The aroma is up front with banana, pepper, dried fruit and baking spice. The flavor is pretty dry and crisp with some light bready malts, doughy yeast, banana, and some light acidity before a spicy, frothy finish. Mild baking spice at the end. Nice and light bodied, but not really my cup of tea.

finally get to try this, had a bottle break in one of my first trades. i didn’t lick the glass shards.. . . earthy and mild, mild yeast .. . perfect mouth, clean finish .. . . the main reason I don’t go skydiving is because it involves jumping out of a plane.

Fruit and yeast. Sweet slightly "wheaty" aroma. Pours very cloudy light yellow with a thick fluffy foamy bright white head. Fresh, clean, fruity. A slight sour yeasty hint and a little bubblegum on the finish. Distinct wheat beer feel and flavor. Nice easy drinking beer.

February 14, 2014 - bottle from Churchills. Cloudy yellow pour with some head. Aroma was fruity and spicy. Taste was consistent with aroma, but also a touch of hops.
