4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy golden colored with a big white head and great lacing. Musty, peppery, grassy, somewhat doughy, straw, fruity, lemon peel, citrusy, and honeycomb aroma. Taste is earthy, bright, floral, clean and crisp. Other fruity notes, lemons, hibiscus, clove, pepper, grass, biscuit, crackers and dough with a dry spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very crisp, floral, yet clean and flawless. There is this noble hop like characteristic that makes it so bright and easy to drink yet the Belgian yeast adds so many layers of complexity. Really nice stuff.

A light Belgian style ale, perfect for summer or anytime for that matter. It reminds me of a smooth pale ale with hints of spice, citrus, and hops. Very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Hay Merchant. Pours a cloudy yellow with large frothy white head that lasts awhile leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is yeast, sugary malt, and banana. Thin mouthfeel with sweet fruit, honey and light yeast. Hides alcohol well, very good.

12oz bottle. Pours a hazy straw-yellow with a white frothy head. Aroma of hops and very floral. Taste is yeasty, moderate hop, earthy and a great citrus burst. A definite summer beer with the ability to make it into my top 5 favorite summer ales.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lightly cloudy, shimmering mustard yellow with a huge white head that starts coarse and gets fine as it collapses into itself. Slow decay. Aroma is lots of sweet lemon grass. Honey and a redwood forest on a cool evening breeze. Bread. Body is creamy and frothy, yet light and with little carbonation burn. Flavor is lemony-sweet grass and redwood forest. A spot-on match for the aroma. It goes down quick and easy. I would love to see these guys brew. What kind of protein rest/specialty malts are they using to get a body and head like this!

12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Hazy deep yellow with a nice steady white head.
Spicy nose, with yeast, floral hops and citrus fruits.
Fruity flavors of grapefruit, with some tangy wheat, yeast and herbs.
Lively, light-med body, dry and refreshing. Quite cool.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A steady pour into my Sierra Nevada IPA glass produces a one finger thick, pale, off-white colored head. The beer is a nice gold color that shows a hazy, straw-gold hue when held up to the light. The aroma has a solid herbal / floral note and also has a yeast derived spiciness that leans towards earthy spices, clove, and perhaps a touch of coriander. Soft fruit notes of honey-dew melon, pear, and perhaps some kiwi like character are balanced by an almost woody pepper note, a musty herbal character, and a general woodiness towards the finish.
This has a spritzy carbonation to it, and is quite light bodied and refreshing on this hot summer’s day. There is a soft Meyer lemon zest character and hint of tartness up front, while an herbal and spicy character lingers throughout the palate. A soft, chewy grain character adds a nice, noticeable backbone to the flavor; it contributes notes of saltine crackers, straw like grain, and, along with the hops, a dried floral character that has lots of wildflower spiciness and grassy character to it. The grain character contributes a soft chewy sweetness that accentuates a green, ripe, fruit character that suggests at pears and melons perhaps.
This is quite nice and easy drinking, I love the mix of herbal / lemony hops, the pale grain character and the characterful yeast character. Once again I find I am a sucker for beers that are nicely hoppy, and not so high in alcohol, that it gets in the way of the dance of malt, hop, and yeast character. In the end this is far more tasty than I was expecting.
