Canned. Pours a rusty orange with a solid, fluffy white head. Florally, citrus nose: grapefruit, peach flesh, banana, white pepper, a little ginger. Taste is mild to moderate sweetness with a mild bitterness in the late middle that grows slightly in intensity. Finish has more grapefruit rind, Belgian yeast, orange juice, freshly cut straw. Very enjoyable.

Clear golden, light white head. Fruity citrus, floral nose. Some lighter resin. Decently bitter, some cereal, bready sweetness in the body. Lighter body, watery, quite effervescent. Medium finish. Quite nice.

12oz can pours clear dark amber red with a finger of head. Nose is malty sweet fruit, cherry and light earthy citrus coupled with subtle belgian grainy yeast spice. Taste is sweet, medium bodied, a touch slick, malt driven with minimal hop character, subtle orangey spice, finishes with some loght toasty bread grain and subdued yeast spice, little bit of stickyness, round sweet malt fruit.

Picked up a 12 oz can at Fresh Thyme market in Cincinnati, Ohio. Pours a clear honey color with a small, soapy head that dissipates quickly. I’d recommend a tulip glass for this one...I drank it from a very wide-mouthed tumbler, and the aromas seemed so faint, not nearly as nice as the aromas coming from the can. But coming from the smaller opening of the can was a very nice concentrated hop scent, very earthy and grassy. Flavors are crisp and bright—a light, fruity sweetness with a bit of yeasty barnyard funk underneath. Carbonation feels somewhat fine, but lively. Overall, a nice beer, and pretty interesting flavors.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home after work with only two days left until vacation! Appearance is a slightly clearish amber with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with light yeast notes and a light hop profile, delicate but nicely done. Taste is nice, balanced well, crisp but also lightly bitter. Well done.

Can. Hoppy, a little cheesy a rock & roll, cuddly on the bus back from Briess. Not bad, but not a favorite.
