3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to egajdzis for filling this growler from his home kegerator...
Appears a hazy, pale gold with small amounts of CO@ bubbles slowly rising to the top. A small, foamy, bright white head fades into a mild cap and collar. Spotty lacing is left behind.
Smell is of light funk, sugary candy, fruity, malty, dusty, earthy, with cream, a "juicy fruit" gum aroma, and light aromas of water-logged lumber.
Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a funky, sugary, rubber like flavor that’s a bit odd but seems to fit the style in the farmhouse mix.
Mouthfeel is light bodied, sweet, with a dry bitterness that makes the brew very light, short lived, and pretty easy to drink. There is a fizzy, sweetness runing along the tongue till she runs dry.

UPDATED: MAY 28, 2013 Poured a hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of fresh grapefruit, vanilla, lemongrass, yeast, wheat, clove, and orange peel. Taste of honey, toasted dough, citrus fruits, juicy, light banana, tart wheatiness, white pepper, and a dry, yeasty finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at P-ville. Pours hazy gold with minimal white head. I got spices in the aroma, plus yeast, lemongrassy malt, and some honey. Tastes sort of like a spiced up, hopped up cross between a wheat beer and an APA. It does finish on the tart side, with some floral, spicy saisony notes at the end. Unique and quaffable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Semi-cloudy & deep yellow color, minimal bright white head, good lacing around the glass, nose full of yeast, honey, light barley & a hint of grass, full-bodied, the small glass certainly goes quick though, very drinkable, flavors started off very sweet but finished on the dry & tart side, lots of carbonation in the body, flavor notes included honey, barley, alcohol & yeast, very crisp & enjoyable, the finish as mention was on the bitter side with hints of more honey & alcohol, very nice beer

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Phoenixville: Aroma of yeast, milk, and cheese. Pungent. A little malt nose. Strong scent. Poured a cloudy dark yellow (flaxen). Big white head mainly diminished. Very good lacing. Flavors of banana, corriander, and lemon. Flavor is different. Moderatly sweet to start then bitter. Tangy, crisp, dry, bitter finish. Light to medium body. Lively carbonation. Overall, it was a different style than I have had, but was still very drinkable. As it was on the lighter side, I can see why miners would enjoy it at the end of the day.
