Bottle. Poured clear yellow color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate spice green and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium spice sweet flavor with a medium spice finish of moderated duration. Refreshing complex beer.

At Bad Apple. Very interesting beer, the missus loved it, I’m not so sure yet. Grassy, apple-y, crisp, dry finish. Pale mildly cloudy white/yellow. Another flavor that I can’t place, must be the absinthe? Serving: Tap

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Alla Spina with Shin Tommy before helping Devin move. Pours turbid, hazy raw honey gold with a fat, sticky, tightly-bubbled white head. Aroma of pears, ripe Granny Smith apple, peaches, freshly-picked lavender, and some odd tea, grass, and spring-air notes. Aroma is a fucking knockout. Taste is sour gummy worms, peaches, tart pear, and just a subtle hint of fresh apple juice. This tastes overwhelmingly like the skins of apples and pears with a dose of peach/apricot stone fruit with a touch of funk. Ever-so-slightly sour and beautifully balanced. This beer is fantastic and I would drink it all night if I could. Holy shit. (Not really any traces of absinthe, but that really does not matter.)

Pours a hazy yellow with thick white head. Has a wheat and lemon aroma with some hints of spices. A sweet, wheaty and citrus flavor like a beligan styled ale. Some spices in there as well. Smooth finish.

On tap. Hazy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is lightly hopped, lemony, citrusy, a touch of biscuit or cracker. Flavor is effervescent, prickly, grassy and dry. Interesting beer. Refreshing.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Alla Spina. Pours a hazy orange body with white lacing. Aroma is very faint overall - smells like a tamed belgian ale. Mouthfeel is medium to light with notes of wheat, citrus, lemon and spice. In no way was this sour, tasted more like a refined witbier or wheat ale.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Draft at Alla Spina. Light gold, cloudy, little head. Boring. A little citrus. Absinthe is undetectable. Paid $12 for a beer that was mediocre at best.

Couldn’t pass up on this one. The body poured a murky yellow with an impressive billowy head. Aromas were full of yeast, leaves, hops and fresh bread. The taste was yeasty as well, but with some light grassy notes all about. I love my absinthe, but it’s just not here. Undertones of old hops and citrus fruit blend well with mellow spices. Very good BUT... how much is needed before I start hallucinating?
