Bottle - compliments of Matt Lindley: Almost clear gold color with not much head. Mild banana aroma with slight rubber notes. Yeasty flavors but not too over the top. Easy to drink.

Citrusy and a little yeasty. Thankfully not too Belgian - i.e. no hint of Brett. Sweet notes of dried fruit and caramel from the malt. Solid stuff.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have a mild to moderate fruity character, grass, yeast, bready, only light Belgian character, sweet malts; not much to get excited about.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured hazy dark golden color with an average to large frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium citrus yeast flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. I would not quickly recommend this to a friend.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm - thanks again, Chris! Pours a cloudy goldenrod color with a small white head. Aroma of grass, citrus rind, pale and sweet and bready malts, sawdust, and sweetened cereal. The flavor is the same - there isn’t a ton of Belgian character here, interestingly enough. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, dry, malty mouthfeel. Not that Belgian, not that beardy. Fine by me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle, from my local Kroger. Shared with local raters. Hazy golden orange color. Thin white head. Dots and bits of lace. Musty orange citrus in the nose, some belgian-type yeast. Kind of spicy, but mild overall. Hoppy, citrusy-rindy, kind of spicy, some belgian yeast. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lightly soft carbonation, lightly slick finish. Moderate sweet taste, lightly zesty, light bitterness. Decent kind of hoppy citrusy belgian ale.

Bottle at SBWF2014. Clear amber color, medium-sized white head. Metallic, grainy malty aroma. Light-bodied to medium-bodied. Flavor is fruity, a bit metallic and even sweetish. A bit lame. The story is better.

Pours an orangish copper, with nice white head. Aroma of malt and spices. Taste of malts, grassy hops, a touch of citrus, and spices. Interesting and unique blend. Thumbs up.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a full bubbly head cover, a sheet of lace. Taste is straight malt that adds bitter herbs and hay, tobacco, maybe some cloves, maybe some coriander. A little thin. Fun to try, but nothing that really makes an impression.
