Deep amber pour. The nose is nice and spicy. Lots of bright and spicy/fruity hops over a fairly fruity and spicy yeastiness. Citrus and tropical fruity hoppiness over a bright lingering bitterness. Lightly peppery but decent.

I picked this over the American Rye for the 2010 SA beer challenge. Poured a clear gold color with a small white head. Nice floral hop aroma with Belgian yeast aroma. Hoppy flavor gave a nice taste with typical Sam Adams drink ability. Light to medium body. I would buy these.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This has a good hop aroma and hop flavor. Citrus, wildflowers. It is not Houblon, but good anyway. Belgian yeast is evident, and the hops are appropriately intense. Gold color.
