Skyview (5215) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 26, 2012
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.

This is one of those instances where a brewery tried to do a barrel aged beer and just wound up w/ one that tastes like its been on the shelf to long. This is a slightly tart belgian style which seems like it might have been crisp and refreshing had it went straight into bottles but is instead a bit oxidized and flabby. I guess there is kind of a nutty complexity hear but it comes at a sacrifice of drinkability so, in my opinion, it’s not worth it.

Tasted this on tap at the 8th Street Ale Haus in Sheboygan, Wisconsin so I didn’t get great notes. But it was terrible.

tmoreau (2445) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2013
12 oz. bottle poured to a 1/2 pint taster showing a lightly hazed, orangy gold color, with bubbly, white head foam that reduced fairly quickly to a ring & film, and left some light spots & ribbons as lacing. The aroma was light grain/wheat, with light cracker & biscuit scent, some floral and spice hints with a touch of coriander, light fruit & citrus, and a bit of sweetness. The flavor presented low hop bitterness, light astringency & tartness, a light body, and a spritzy effervescence to project these notes to the palate without becoming watery or thin. Dry, crisp, and nicely sessionable.

b3shine (5492) - Indiana, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Bottle to snifter (thanks kbutler1). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells solid; yeast and citrus. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

madvike (2753) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle - Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Nose is florals, a bit of mellow oak, light spicing, some plastic, and tropical fruit. Tastes kind of like a hefe--big time tropical fruit and banana notes, a bit of clove, and some dusty yeast covered by more tropical fruit. Slick, medium body, with a touch of carbonation. Very fruity and flavorful, with a bit of sweet stickiness to it.

kbutler1 (1351) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow/orange color with a slight white head. Slightly funky aroma, Belgian florals. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly sweet, minimal Belgian notes, pepper, some bubble gum flavored. Overall, tastes a little watered down.

BVery (6427) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013 Bottle. Lightly hazy golden pour with almost no head. Nice aroma of Belgian yeast, flowers, and a touch of fruit. Some clove in here as well. Palate is a little flat and light. Pretty flavorful.

jebert (500) - Watertown, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2012
Pours a light golden color, almost straw, with very little head. Nose is honey and bread. Average mouthfeel. Taste is mostly a yeasty bread, somewhat sour. No noticeable hops, fruit or floral notes. Not in the same league as true Belgians.

On tap at O’so Tap House. Straw yellow with a white topper. Aroma of bready malt, roses, floral notes and some Belgian yeast. Taste of yeast and mild candi sugar with floral and rose pedal notes underneath.
