The smell is a bit barnyard, with lots of malt behind it. The taste, from a medium plus mouthfeel,is hoppy and mildly spicey, and is a bit astringent in the finish.Drinkable though not best of style.Orange with off-white head.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 20, 2006
Bottle... Hazy yellow ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Terrific retention. Spicy, breadsy nose with banana, pale and fuzzy fruit esters, coriander phenol and dough. Sweet, fruity flavor up front, then gently bitter, slightly pungent and spicy on the backside. Medium-bodied and creamy with fizzy carbonation. Finishes a touch tangy then fairly dry. Without the cage, my bottle would’ve opened itself. Feisty!

Bottle shared by Kyle at the Winter Solstice. Poured a pale gold with a white head that dissipated to the edges. Aroma was full of floral and fruit with a backing yeast and grain note. Flavor was similar with floral, fruit and sweet grain coming through with a bit of soap in the finish.

Tap at CK thanks to craftycarl21! Good foam. Sweet pear nose. Estery, bright, mild diaper phenols. Taste is juicy, clean pear. Nice dough and honey bread. Very good. Sweeter saison, could use more hop balance. Still, pretty nice.

DLD ’11. Poured hazy yellowish orange with nice fluffy white head, aroma had notes of bananas and clove, some fruity esters with earth, touch of barnyard, some wood and grass notes. Taste was nice and full bodied, touch of spicy yeast with notes of grass, bananas, fruit, and some grassy noble hops in the finish, nice and dry.
