3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Citrus lemon, cilantro and belgian yeast. Clear bubbly gold with a frothy head. Nice and light, some hay and again the yeast. A very basic beer that is refreshing and clean but by no means as exciting as the show.

Thought I wasn’t going to get to try this after it initially sold out quick but now come episode 6 it’s just sitting there at whole foods. Pours gold with huge fluffy bleach white head. Nose of spices and tropical fruit. Tastes of apricots, white pepper, coriander, yeast, biscuits, ginger, and touch sourness. Refreshing brew look forward to rest of series both the beers and tv

Bottle. Cork gives an exuberant "pop" once the cage is taken off and a little upward pressure is given to the cork but it doesn’t gush at all. Pours a light straw blonde color with a big fluffy white head. Belgian yeast esters dominate the nose, floral mostly with some latent bubble gum, banana, and some citrus. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet with some spice upfront and then bubble gum and banana. The lemon is there but pretty slight and subdued. A little bitterness in the end. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a cloudy yellow with thick, fluffy, white head that fades to just a wisp but leaves abundant, erratic lacing. Aroma of hay, honey, coriander, cloves. Sweet, with some lemon and hay but the yeast dominates the palate with funky, spicy notes.

750mL thanks to noodleuser. Pours a cloudy golden. Medium white foam with good lacing. Nose is phenolic, heavy diaper plastic, fresh apricot. Still a tad overboard on the toilet cleaner nose. Taste is heavy carbonation up front, mild diaper, yellow apple, dusty yeast, some mint. Decent.

750ml bottle shared by Noodleuser: pours a clear bright golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some biscuity notes and floral hops. Starts with pretty good fullness and biscuity malty sweetness with some floral hop notes and a drier herbal bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle, bottled 1/31/13. Best by 2015. Shared with friends during a game of Catan. Mostly clear golden color. Slightly orange. Lots of fine particles in the body. Big white head upon pouring, fades to a good thin bit that retains. No lace really sticks. Nice light spicy yeasty estery nose, lightly bready, lightly peppery. Light citrus peel. Light zesty sweet taste, lightly spicy. Nice yeasty, full mouthfeel. Good belgian golden.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle pours a slightly hazy golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that leaves some nice lacing rings on the glass. Aroma is light fruits and yeast. Taste is a sharp spiciness with a malty sweetness and a citrusy hop bite. Loads of carbonation provide a very lively sensation on the palate. A nice treat and highly recommended.
