3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
At a BBQ: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is bread and spices. Taste is quite spicy, wit a little bit of sweetness. Lots of lemon in the taste, along with a little hit of ginger. Kind of one dimensional in this regard, but not exactly a horrible beer. I wasn’t hankering to have another one.

Herbal wheat beer that Belgian Influence is recognized in the core. Hazy golden ale looked refined in a Hamm’s pilsner glass. A light session beer, I like the name. I wonder if PBC was giving homage to the mass produced budget wine produced on Luzerne Avenue in the 70’s called ’Chateau Luzerne’ when they named Fleur de Lehigh.

Herbal, lemon, grassy, floral fresh. Nice spring beer. Beer grows on you as you go. Defiantly a little different and probably would not get a case of this, but its nice. Could drink this on a nice saturday/sunday afternoon.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
12 oz bottle from a sampler. Thank goodness as I would never get this beer again. This was one bad beer. Aroma is pungent and taste was skunky. Brewer tried to do to much with a crazy blend of veggies, herbs and spices. Awful and would not get again. Best thing about this beer was the bottle and the label of Shibe Park/Connie Mack Stadium on the front.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft a while back... Interesting beer, Golden in color, small white head. The fresh spiciness of the ginger and lemon grass play really well with the herbal notes of the chamomile. There is a nice sweet fruityness to the finish, no doubt from the belgian yeasts, but might be some residual sugars.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice, super hazy, chunky golden coloured body with some pungent orange glow and a thick, four centimetre tall soapy tan head. Aroma of yeast, coriander seed, curacao, lemons, wheat and a bit of white pepper. Light-bodied; Nice wheat flavour with a ton of coriander seed freshness, some yeast, a little lemons and a ton of nice herbal spiciness with pepper and some light sage really coming out. Aftertaste is nice - being pungent (spices) and mild (yeast/wheat) at the same time. Overall, a very nice beer that shows great complexity while not overwhelming the palate. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Wegman’s in Malvern, Pennsylvania on 22-September-2012 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 01-November-2012.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: Lots of spices. A little like a wit and a Belgian blonde had a baby. Bottle was a little old at the end of the summer, so I imagine that fresh it would be even more flavorful.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark yellow to a light, brownish orange with a small, slightly off-white head that nearly fully diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma had moderate light bread and cookie; light to moderate dusty and spicy yeast; chamomile, lemon and other spices. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet and sour, and moderately acidic with and average duration. There was pale malt, light bread, cracker, cookie, lemon, chamomile, pepper, slight ginger, other spices, and lots of dusty yeast. The light to medium body was fairly dry with very tingly carbonation and a dry and lightly astringent finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting take on what appears to be a Belgian style at the core. The addition of the lemongrass and ginger adjuncts add unique flavoring and appearance( chunks of ginger dancing in the carbonation!). definitely a different brew, and would probably go well with some Asian cuisine...
