marcus (7323) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle from City Beer. Pours cloudy golden with a modest off-white head and a fruit and yeast aroma. There is a decent caramel malt flavor with a dry slightly bitter finish. It’s a bit watery, but has sufficient flavor to make it interesting.

larsga (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 17, 2009
Huge white coarseish head. Faintly hazy yellow body. Earthy floral peas aroma with fruity milky Belgian yeast notes. Very harmonic. Dry-sweetish lemony earthy floral pea taste with milky soapy honey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild mouthfeel. Dry floral metallic earthy milky aftertaste with pea notes. Nice, balanced, easy to drink.

Ernest (6603) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/bread), lightly to moderately hoppy (honeysuckle flowers, herbs), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with notes of honey, gum, mint, pepper, dried pineapple. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Mind-melting aroma with aspects from all aspects/ingredients of brewing...could sniff this all day...just amazing. Very rich in the mouth...sweet but quite a bit of finishing bitterness that keeps me coming back again and again. The only thing I wish were better is the rather syrupy-watery mouthfeel. Fabulous beer and brewery.
