Light colored, well-carbonated. The yeast character in this is lovely, with more funk and berries than spice. Unfortunately the hop character is merely ok, slightly bitter, and not very smooth at that . It is well brewed and at it’s best is a light grassy/berry summer treat, but it just doesn’t go where the american hops can. I never new American hops could pair well with a Belgian yeast, though, until I tried Iron Hill Belgian IPA, Stone’s Cali-Belgique doesn’t do it for me either.

Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a huge foamy white head over a hazed golden body. Aromas are floral, peppery, estery, phenol, apricot and sage. Flavors are equally floral and spicy. Bitter, grainy, apricot, grassy, hoppy. Stone fruit, lingering esters. Lively carbonation.

Definitely farmhouse. It didn’t have any really big flavors, but lots of subtle hints of apple, hops, orange, and that outdoor smell. Nose was bright and fairly fruity, but with an acidic, lemon bent. Overall, smooth and easy to drink. Poured a nice golden color with a frothy white head. Well worth it.

Translucent amber with a foamy and pillowy beige blanket atop. Aroma of bready yeast, citrus, lemongrass, yeast and grains. Fizzy body tastes of spicy Belgian yeast, pale malt, floral hops and light funk. Mild bitterness, the low end of the hatters.

Arayaga2 (1769) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 14, 2012
Amber in color with a thin white head. Aroma is spicy and estery, with a rosey, floral nose to it. Taste is a biscuity version of that with dry, peary esters into the finish. $6/22oz

Elwood (3022) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Serving: 22 oz. bottle from Fire Works Leesburg. It pours a nice gold color with a sizeable white head. The nose has yeast, orange, and grapefruit notes. The flavor has a touch of funky farmhouse character combined with the citrus, yeast, and malt notes. Light and easy on the palate with a pretty clean finish. Not half bad.

(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of bubblegum, mustiness, pepper, and coriander. Flavor of Belgian yeast, light soap, citrus, and candi sugar with a somewhat chalky finish.

deyholla (6486) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 15, 2010
On tap. Poured clear gold with a white head that dissipated, but left a nice lace while it lasted. Aroma was mainly sweet grains with a bit of biscuit and hay and just a hint of underlying floral notes. The flavor had more floral with the sweet grains that mainly had a biscuit note.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - JUL 23, 2010
Sampler at the brewpub (Holland, MI). Missed this last time in town. Pours a crisp clean golden yellow, a decent whitish head that dies to a smaller film, clinging to the edges. Good lacing. Aromas are a bit fruity, some light esters and some citrus mix with bready malts, pretty light overall. Initial is medium bodied with a pretty big dose of Belgian yeast, apples and pears right off the bat moving into bread and a telltale Belgian yeasty spice. Vanilla, a touch of clove, orange peel and light florals provide a light bitterness. Sweet up front with lingering fruits, a touch of sweetness. Pretty fruity, restrained bitterness. Quite flavorful, not overly sweet as expected. Dry, a touch of honey, fruity esters, more orange and floral slanted hoppiness. Not bad
