this had a great golden color and strong biscuit and yeast and fruit notes. Thick feel lots of head. Flavor was dark fruits with a tad bitter and citrus flavor with resin and pine. Bubbly.

Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Big, boozy, sweet, some lemon, dough, yeast, spice. Decent character in here, but itís tough to drink more than a small sample of this beer. Too sweet.

Golden pour with eggshell head. Nose bready with slight citrus bite. Lively and carbonated on the tongue with light lemon and yeasty cracker body. Refreshing and refined.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Hazy golden with a small white foam. A yeast and euro hop aroma. I taste the yeast and hops along with fruit. This could be a farmhouse. Not bad at all.

Bottle shared at Zwanze Day 2012 by arminjewell. Thanks! Pours a bit hazy golden appearance with a fairly white head. Fairly fruity, lemon, light banana, somewhat spicy yeasty aroma. Kind of chewy bready, somewhat boozy, straw, straw, somewhat fruity flavor. I really didnít care much for this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: light malts, bread, some yeast, peach and apricot. Pours somewhat hazy, golden in color, massive white head with excellent retention, good lacing. Flavor is very fruit forward, pineapple and peaches, also bready malts and a touch of hops in the background. Medium body, high carbonation. Nice brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazed and almost murky amber gold with a large white head. Floral notes, a good amount of musk and yeast. Medium bodied, fruity esters and a nice amount of sweetness. Long yeast on the finish, a touch of warming alcohol lingers for a while. Warm and toasty, sweet floral yeast.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml bottle served in a FFF teku glass.
A: Pours a semi hazy apricot color with a thick white head forming on the pour. As the head recedes to a thick ring it leaves nice sheets of sticky lace.
S: Big fruity esters and vibrant tropical fruit flesh. Some belgian yeast, slight spicy, but mostly restrained. Dry cracker malts sweetness. Some booze is noticeable as it warms, but it adds a nice layer.
T: Slighty spiced yeast with some bready flavor components as well. Light tart fruits, mild tropical fruit flesh no noticeable booze until it warms up.
M: Light bodied with a medium to high carbonation level and a sweet, drying finish.
O: The mouthfeel was great for the style and it went down easy. I killed the whole 750 ml and definitely felt it afterwards. Easily drinkable for 10%. I suggest sharing with friends.

Enjoyable but overall confused. The yeast, malt, and citrus hops interacted like strangers in a doctors waiting room - they were all there, but cared little about talking with one another and just wanted to get out.
