herbjones (742) - Orange, California, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Brick red brew with a huge loosely packed head. A bit too fizzy for me, but still an enjoyable brew. Biscuity malt dominates with some spiciness coming through. Yeast seems to overwhelm the hop presence in the finish.

jredmond (5655) - Manhattan, New York, USA - NOV 28, 2014
Draft at Russian River with Linh. Pours a clear golden body with thin white lacing. Aroma is fruit and sweet malt. The nose is pretty tame overall. Mouthfeel is watery with notes of clean malt, fruit, spice, and grass. Ok.

Ron (2687) - Rochester, New York, USA - OCT 24, 2014
On tap at Russian River. Pours a copper color with a white lacy head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel and almonds. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, banana, nuts and some sourish berries. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and smooth mouthfeel. Easy-going.

"i was hoping for more farmhouse funk here. it’s got a slightly spicy aroma, a yeasty mouthfeel and flavor. a good belgian session ale, light and refreshing, but basic."

On draft at the source, fuck this place gets crowded. pours murky and hazy amber brown with small to medium white head. Flavors are dark fruits mostly plum, caramel malt, Belgian yeast, wood, light copper, and nuts. Medium bodied with sweet malting in the finish.

Defreni (2649) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 26, 2014
Fad: Taster på brewpub. AAnderledes end wit da den er tydeligt anderledes gæret, men igen er lemonaden meget fremtrædende i denne lysegule øl. Solid og meget drikbar hvor gæren ikke for lov til at gøre øllen kedelig men snarere giver den et zing. Fin øl.

Homer321 (2136) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at brewery. A light caramel and toffee in the nose. Some earthiness. Taste is sweet with some caramel. Just kind of ok I guess. Nothing exciting for me.

adnielsen (9470) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap @ Russian River. Pours a bit hazy straw yellow appearance with an off white head. Some white fruits in the nose. Banana, pear. Black pepper. Flavor is a bit twangy and herbal. Some grass. Fairly dry. I didn’t really enjoy this that much but would like to give it another shot.

Reynolds314 (2440) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the source. Pours a cloudy pale color. Aroma is saisonesque with lots of clove, pepper, banana, and pear. Taste is medium sweet with some caramel maltiness that goes with the yeastys.
