Tap. States 3.88% ABV on the board, perhaps this is #4?? Pours clear pale yellow, small white head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is light grass, honey. Flavor is the same, some yeast esters, pepper, banana. Light body. Interesting.

Draft - Light lemon and a bit of sweet yeast. Clear pale gold with a thin white head. Light lemon, grassy hop bitterness and a sweet finish. Little bit soapy but OK.

Indra (2607) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Draft (growler). Aroma of light honey, floral perfume, straw, green, leafy herb and lightly sweet, grainy malt. Clear light golden in color with a sparse, fine head. Profile is full of biscuity, grainy, very lightly sweet maltiness, more perfumy, floral tones and faint citrus, with that lovely fresh, green leafy herbal character and a gentle, drying bitterness appearing towards the finish. Amply carbonated with a refreshing feel and a medium body. Very nicely done, such a simple profile but elegant. Thanks to John!

theisti (3215) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Growler shared by John. The pour is a clear golden with a one inch white head. The aroma is bright hop, along with a touch of onion, and light floral citrus hops. Very soft and inviting aroma. The taste is the light onion, then turns to grain malt, some dark cherry fruit and finishes with a bit of the citrus lemon. Light yeast character throughout. Flavors integrate really nicely throughout. The palate is medium to light bodied, very soft carbonation and general mouth feel. Nice, thanks for sharing John.

Surprising hop bite. Not much aroma. Fruity taste with a bitter finish. Ok session, very lite ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler shared by IrishBoy. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Light stone fruit and barnyard for aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is light and matches the aroma. Quite tasty.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 24, 2010
Growler, Shenandoah Throwdown. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small wispy white head that fell to a partial film. The nose has that odd cat-piss like note that I get from some hops with bready malt and a light hint of yeast. Nice bready malt flavor with some earthy hops, very nice bitterness level for the thickness of the body. Very bright and fresh tasting. Not a whole lot of Belgian character to me. Mouthfeel is light, airy, and fizzy with some light clinginess on the finish. Pretty nice beer.
