Clear goldenrod, minimal white head. Some barnyardy, earthy malt-notes dominate the nose, with some lighter, subtle floral notes. Subtlely bitter on the initial taste, but opens up into the malty sweetness that the nose hints at. Lighter, chewy mouthfeel, quite effervescent, pretty clean. Fine.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Random single picked up at Woodmanís for a buck something - pours a slightly hazy gold - nose smells fairly Belgian in character (so much so that I think that it is supposed to be a Belgian ale, not a golden ale) - esters of banana and pear, light white frosting sweetness, light grainy malt, light citric acid - the approach is very tart and acidic, so much so that I wonder whether this is infected or supposed to be like this - notes of melon and lemon rind - light grain - mild esters - finish of pear and prickly acid, even a light bit of funkiness - again, hard to tell if infected or intentionally tart - in situations like this, I assume infection - either way, some interesting aspects in the nose, but overall hard to enjoy.

As of April 2014, RateBeer has this in the database as a blond ale. This does not strike me as correct but I really have no idea what it is. I might say itís something of a saison or a witbier, maybe. It pours cloudy orange w/ a scant white head of fine bubbles. Nose is slightly fruity w/ a bit of banana and clove along w/ a little bit of mildly pleasant nuttiness from oxidized malts. This is medium bodied and a bit tart w/ prickly carbonation. This is an interesting beer. At first it almost seemed accidentally soured but itís grown on me over the course of the glass.

Pours hazy gold, brief white head. More aromatic then average - slightly musty, fruity. Mostly malt, virtually no hops, with a bright edge, hint of lemon, and effervescence. Has "farmhouse ale" characteristics. Served ice cold with lemon wedge, it would be OK.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours an unclear bronzy golden. Streams of carbonation, Minimal head. Aroma is fruity, overripe peach or pineapple, otherwise I dont pick up much else. Not offensive but ..i donít know. Flavor is rather indescript. Bread, cardboard, some fruitiness. Mediumish body. Creamy. On the flatter side. Perhaps this is past its prime. Just a regular beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little musty, malt, fruity, some over ripe fruit.
Taste is fairly malty and hoppy, while still fairly fruity. Not too much of anything, nothing too exciting, a little flat, but not terrible.

On tap at The Old Fashioned in Madison. Comes a somewhat cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of malt, grain, and citrus. Taste is malt, wheat, lemon, and spice. Decent summer beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one poured into a shaker glass a dark yellow with minimal head that actually built a little bit later. A light, crisp, start with a chewy cereal type malt followed by slightly citrusy hops. Not the best, but not bad either. A warm weather beer.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a mostly clear, light gold with minimal head. Aroma of light citrus with some oddly dank malt. Taste is light lemon citrus. Probably a decent summer brew, but kinda boring.

Tap. Cloudy yellow pour with white head. Smells of malt. Tastes of malt and water. Easy to drink but not much flavor. Watery.
