Sampled from ck1 at Uncle Mikes. Pours very yellowish with a white head. Smells very belgian yeasty with some straw and earth. Taste is of some spices, some sweet fruit, straw. A bit thin even for a belgian? 12.5 if I could.

A rather neat summer style bottle design hints that this is a lighter, summer style brew. This beer starts off with pouring a clear, goldenrod color with an average head that disappears rather quickly. It definitely delivers that traditional Belgian style scent of yeast, wheat and citrus mixed with floral tones. The scent is very inviting indeed. It is exactly what you expect a Belgian style brew to taste like. Initially I found the yeast and wheat in the taste and as drinking progressed, out came the citrus and hibiscus tones. It’s very mellow and refreshing however it does lack in its texture a little bit; perhaps a bit more yeast would help that out. Has a weak after taste as well that could use some work. It was interesting to find an O’so beer that I have never seen or heard of before. O’so is better known for The Big O, Night Train, and Hopdinger. That being said I was happy to find a lesser known brew to try and review. Definitely a well made beer, perhaps not fantastic but still rather good.

Picked up a single bottle at Riley’s World of Wines and sampled on draught during the GTMW 2012. Pours a hazy golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leave behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of caramel and golden grain malt, a hint of banana esters, light clove, a touch of cotton candy and light floral hops. Taste is medium bodied, not as heavy as the original Qu Rosa, flavors of multi-grain malt, light Belgian yeast, some mild vanilla and definitely rose pedals. More smooth finish than the Qu Rosa with a lingering vanilla and belgian yeast aftertaste.

Comes off like an american-styled saison. A spicy refreshing summer beer. The rose pedals are noticeable, oak not as much.

Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a very thin, slightly off-white head. Aroma of coriander seed, yeast, curacao, lemons and some strong wheat. Light to Medium-bodied; Slightly light flavour with yeast and wheat at first then some lighter fruits and acidic notes. Good aftertaste thats fairly light and a bit acidic with lemons, curacao and a touch of coriander seed. Overall, a nice and rather refreshing beer with some good flavours. Nice to sample here in Wisconsin! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased from Ridgeview Liqours in Green Bay, Wisconsin for US$2.00 sampled later in the day from my hotel room in Green Bay on 29-July-2012.

GNBF. Poured cloudy lighter golden with a creamy white head. The aroma picked up bananas and black pepper over soft bready malts.. nice balance. The flavor found mangos, orange meat, bread, and clover honey at the core, with banana, white pepper, and some odd fruits around.. got weird toward the back. Lighter-bodied with moderate-plus carbonation on the palate.. very good on the front half, but I didn’t care for the rest of the drink.

Bottle cortesy of nuplastikk, thanks! Murky golden orange color, small bright white head. Aroma of lemon, grapefruit, sourdough bread. Taste is fruity and yeasty. Nice.

12oz bottle. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Delicate flowery strawberry apricot vanilla flavor, this is really much more balanced and well-executed than the Qu Rosas were. I don’t know if it is a Saison yeast, but Id suspect a "regular" Belgian strain, and it really works here. Refreshingly unique, somewhere between a stateside Strawberry Belgian Blonde and a Saison. Yeasty vanilla medium to full body. Delicious, and quite a remarkable tweaking of the Qu Rosa.
