From bottle into glass. Great lemony color with light lacing foam, nice light mouth feel with some fizz, citrusy taste with a little spice. Worth having a case available in the basement!

I had this at Global Brew. The aroma is very nice. Pours a gold color with a nice head. Taste is a citrus with nice hop flavor. This is really good. I would definitely drink this again.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pale golden body was hazy, and a large four finger thick head formed rapidly, despite me pouring the beer very gently. The look reminded me a lot of Duvel, but the floral hoppy smell was evocative more of an IPA. Besides the hops, there were spicy, dusty smells imparted by the house yeast strain. The taste was a great combination of typical Belgian Pale Ale flavors, of banana, papaya, melon, and white pepper, and a distinctive hop character. The finish was somewhat tart, and spicy. The body was light and alcohol well hidden. A very easy to drink beer with a refreshing take on the style.

12 oz bottle into a tulip.
Pours a hazy straw yellow with a substantial foamy white head nearly spilling out of the glass. Outstanding head retention and thick globs of lacing.
The aroma fits the style perfectly. Spicy lemon and orange peel along with great yeast esters. Bread and cracker crumbs in the background with some flowers. Just really amazing in every way possible.
The flavor is just as great as the aroma with juicy orange and lemon up front with a quick hit of coriander. Spicy Belgian yeast is present throughout and a very nice bready malt base. Light bitterness and a very light spritzy mouthfeel.
Overall, an amzing enjoyable beer. I don’t believe I have had a bad beer from this brewery and this one is just perfect for summer.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, light golden color and lots of carbonation. Strong citrus aromas pleasing to the nose. Light sweet taste on the tongue. Lively carbonation on the palate and a nice medium body. Overall a nicely balanced summer beer with lots to bring to the table, highly recommended

Draft at Jerry’s. Hazy yellow with good, creamy, white head, decent legs /Fresh, bright, fruity nose of citrus & tropical fruit, straw, spice / Medium body, a touch thin, fruity and lightly sweet, turning nicely bitter, with overall fine balance / Elegant flavors of lemon, pear, banana, straw, coriander, clove / Small deduction for a little water to the body, but all in all an excellent summer brew.

Growler from Lizardville Bedford Hghts. I have had this four times and forgotten to rate it each time, so here go from memory of last night when I drank a whole growler. Very pale hazy straw yellow with fluffy white head and lace. Floral bready lemon pastry aroma. Mild fruity apricot sweetness with bready yeasty floral spicy clean finish. Light and refreshing with effervescent carbo. More details next time because this is not a one-time-try-it-and-rate-it beer. Fucking excellent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy bright yellow with a massive white fluffy head that threatens to top the glass even with the gentlest pour. Great retention and lacing. The aroma is immediately bubblegum and Belgian yeast with lemon and underlying hints of barnyard. The taste is exactly what I wanted with the floral hops, lemon and a bit of sweetness from the malt. The yeast adds to the complexity with some spiciness and a little funk, ending with a subdued bitterness that fades away. Mouthfeel is smooth and refreshing with a somewhat creamy body and medium/high carbonation that helps make the beer finish dry. This could very well be my go to summer beer as indicated on the bottle. Delicious and very drinkable and Belgian Pale Ales are quickly becoming my favorite style.

Very refreshing aroma! Flowers, hops, earthy. Just reminds you of spring/summer.
Flowerly, earthy, smooth hoppy taste. Very light and refreshing, no one strong flavor.
Very large, long lasting head.

12 ounce bottle into signature tulip glass, bottled on 3/13/2013. Pours cloudy golden straw color with a 3 finger dense and fluffy white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with moderate streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big tangerine, lemon zest, orange zest, pear, light banana, pepper, clove, bubblegum, wheat, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with great balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange zest, pear, pepper, clove, bubblegum, light banana, floral, grass, wheat, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of citrus, light fruits, light banana, clove, pepper, bubblegum, floral, grass, wheat, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester flavors; with moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after finish. Medium-high carbonation and medium bodied; with a lightly cream, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a highly excellent hoppy Belgian pale ale! Great balance and complexity of hop and yeast flavors; and extremely smooth to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
