Danyel (1606) - Colorado, USA - APR 5, 2015
Tap at Pumphouse. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aroma is citrusy, grapefruit, hint of belgian fruit esters. Taste is crisp, easy, bitter throughout with just a touch of belgianiness. Very easy drinking and I like that it’s not overdone with the belgian esters but still has it in there. Overall, I think they did a nice job.

Has all the characteristics to be a top notch bpa but falls short. Thin head, orange color with a bitter finish. The smell betrays the taste. The pumphouse fell short on their interpretation of a quality BPA.

Crushed at the Pumphouse Spring Beer Festival. Damn. Smells like a cross between a wit and a IPA. Spicy and hoppy. Oranges and hops. Pretty unique. Dug it.

3fourths (9147) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Medium dark amber orange colored body. Spicy green apple and coriander nose, a lot of fruit, soda-like as well... definitely has some Belgian yeast, but it’s peppery and acidic and messy throughout. A lot of apple cider acidity, some green vegetable flavors, along with some orange, mango and melon. Sloppy and messy texture, falls apart, feels like soda.

BeerandBlues2 (12193) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Draught at 4th Annual Wildland Firefighters Benefit & Festival at the Pumphouse in Longmont CO. Pours cloudy lemon with a tall foamy white head. Aroma is malt (meal) and fruity citrus hops, corriander nose and yeast (wheat) notes. Wheaty yeast and light malt flavor, fruity and doughy, slighty sour, tart citrus notes. Light bodied and fizzy yet creamy palate.

Aubrey (3509) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 20, 2005
Draft: Yellow-orange and hazy. Lightish body. Sweet and sticky malts, with notes of honey and cakey yeast. Flowery hops; delicate spice aromas in the background; very mild bitterness. Fairly easy to drink, albeit sweet. Not overly complex, but it did have some things going on.

Ernest (7351) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2005
Draught, Pumphouse, Longmont. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain), lightly hoppy (herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a strong note of clove, note of lemon zest. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately acidic, heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Whew, tons of clove phenol in this one, or some other similar spice perhaps (the finish is seemingly harshly spice-bitter, so maybe they DID add something to this). It’s got that cobwebby Belgian yeast character, but this comes off as a pretty mundane and edgy beer altogether. But hey, at least it’s not crawling with banana scent, that’s a relief.
