COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Belgian-inspired Single, subtle floral hop layered with fruity yeast aroma. Bready maltiness, slightly citric with a light body, but distinctly yeast forward. Crisp, clean, and quenching, as was intended.

A slightly hazy straw color with little head. A slightly spicy barnyard smell, perm, banana. Taste is a spicy hop, barnyard, fruit rind, partially flat(maybe a bad bottle), some banana, not a lot of sweetness though. Some off flavors, plastic like hop bitter that detracts. An ok drinker, need to try a fresher bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2014 bottle. Slightly hazy straw color with a receding white head. Aroma is bready malt with some yeast, a hint of pear and a little pepper in the background. Pepper is a little more apparent in the taste and enhances the bread and yeast flavors. There is a faint floral bitterness also. Mouthfeel is clean and light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a slightly hazy light golden yellow with half a finger of white head that settles quickly and good lacing. Aroma has clove and bread from the yeast with some faint fruit and floral scents. Taste has a sort of saltiness up front that becomes clove and cracker malt mixed with some light grassy hops and citrus. A white pepper spiciness and some light bitterness in the finish. Mouthfeel is aqueous with a light body and moderate carbonation. Clean and very drinkable and refreshing. Interesting beer.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 12, 2014
Draft on tap at the brewery (Geneva, ILL). Pours a nice hazy golden yellow hue, a bit of orange hue, striking golden yellow glow through the body. Loopy white head atop is fluffy, coats well and sticks around well into the pour as a nice splotchy film. Aromas show a bit of fruit, subtle yeastiness but fairly clean. Some bread, straw, bit of earthiness. Touches of apple, gentle citrus and subtle banana taper on. A bit spicy, dry. Initial is clean, smooth and tasty. Pretty crushable with notes of banana, apple, faint pineapple. Bready maltrs are mellow, clean with a bit of dough. Earthy dryness, some yeasty elements press on. Smooth, fruity but clean. The backend is a bit dry and almost a faint tartness. Good and easily drinkable. Not too much fruit or sweetness while still having some character. Really nice Single worthy of a session.

BBB63 (6119) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Yeah over carbonated but pretty tasty for an Abbey Single. Actually displays a nice restrained green and fresh hop note around the yeast and pale malt base. Just a slap of spice otherwise it is quite clean and refreshing.

nuplastikk (4658) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2014
12oz bottle. Peachy pale yellow body. Thin white head. Zesty, sharp citrus bite up front fades into a clean, easy, malty finish. Has a real nice carbonation, they certainly get that right. Almost has a salty Gose like thing going on. This is a pretty phenomenal session beer. Well exceeded my expectations, wish they made this in reasonably priced sixpacks. Unique and great.

Frank (2961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 14, 2014
This is a nice little Belgian w/ a solid boost from some American or maybe noble hops. In the glass, it is a slightly hazed blond color w/ a long-lasting head of fine bubbles. Lacing is left behind in nice rings with each sip. This is one of those beers that manages to be light and mild but still flavorful w/o coming off watery. The nose is spicy Belgian yeast underpinned by some citrus and floral hop overtones. There is a very mild sweetness to this which compliments the light, creamy texture quite nicely and also brings out a touch of lemon and black pepper. It finishes w/ a mild bitterness and some lingering sugar and spice on the tongue. This is an excellent beer--light, subtle and flavorful w/ just a slight twist on a classic style to keep it interesting.

tmoreau (2525) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
On tap at Johnís Restaurant & Tavern in Winfield, IL., and dispensed to a shaker showing a clear, light gold, almost straw color, with a modest layer of white head foam that diminished fairly quickly to a ring & film, and left a light amount of wavy strands on the glass. The nose was light grain & smooth malt, yeast influencing phenols as clove, and mild esters as banana, peach, & lemon, with some additional spiciness, maybe coriander, and a touch of sweetness. A mildly earthy hop bitterness, with some peppery dryness, was low at first, but seemed to intensify throughout the taste. A hint of saltiness lingered lightly on the tongue. Light bodied, with lively carbonation, crisp & dry, and quite sessionable.
