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.

12 oz bottle. Pours a cloudy goldenrod color, with a perfect head. Aroma is mostly clove and malt, some yeast. Flavor is a spicy clove kick at the beginning, with a great sweet malt finish. Not as sour as other Belgians Iíve had, and I donít miss it. Palate is effervescent, very drinkable. Overall this is a great Belgian ale.

somehow mixes aspects of a belgian blonde ale, wit, and trippel. nice beer, if just a touch on the boring side, for them anyway. super high carbonation, looks like a wit, or maybe a blonde. clean zesty citrus notes and flavor and some spice. clean and dry."

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.

drsordr (1236) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 13, 2014
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.

TXBadger (1512) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2014
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 (3474) - 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 didnít lick the glass shards.. . . earthy and mild, mild yeast .. . perfect mouth, clean finish .. . . the main reason I donít go skydiving is because it involves jumping out of a plane.
