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.

A very interesting beer, infused with absinthe. Smell it, a bit of mintyness in the smell, some eucalyptus in the taste. Was expecting a bit more perhaps. Had on tap at La Trappe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. A little tough to rate because I've never had absinthe on its own. Pours a hazy gold with a huge white head. Aroma is fruity and a little woody. Taste more or less follows suit. Apparently the wordiness is absinthe? Solid citrus notes interspersed. Excellent dry crisp mouthfeel that disappears quickly. On its own merits quite good.

rubbishystuff (1761) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2013
At Bad Apple. Very interesting beer, the missus loved it, Iím not so sure yet. Grassy, apple-y, crisp, dry finish. Pale mildly cloudy white/yellow. Another flavor that I canít place, must be the absinthe? Serving: Tap

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.) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (440) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 28, 2013
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.

Tmoney99 (10102) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2013
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.

jredmond (5039) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 16, 2013
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.

Pours cloudy yellow with thick white head. Smells citrusy and spicy. Citrus, hops, spices, forest/pine flavors. Somewhat sticky, smooth finish.

tcane7 (1581) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2012
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. Original 2.5 (5,3,5,3,9) Re-rate - 7/30/13: Draft at Alla Spina. Murky orange gold with thin white head and minimal white lace. Nose of citrus, grapefruit, granny smith, copper, funk, spice. Medium to light body, light tartness, spice and metallic finish.
