snoworsummer (2842) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Draft at Portsmouth. Pours clear gold with almost no head. Tastes like grains and malt, not much flavor. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like grains, corn, musk.

sonnycheeba (4037) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Tap at Portsmouth Brewery. Pours clear pale amber with a trace of head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, light caramel, floral notes, light soap, and light apples. Flavor is dry malts, soda water, faint hop bitterness and faint citrus esters; very thin with a dry finish. Light body and low carbonation.

radarsock (1082) - Massachusetts, USA - DEC 14, 2013
Liked. Crisp, refreshing, delicate with notes of bread crumbs, nutmeg, noble hops, and LME. Not the most complex Belgian, but it was served by Gale, the one and only at 401 yesterday evening. She made me remember why I enjoy local dives and obscure public houses so much. This was the beer that she finally asked my ID for, but unlike Kraddel, didn’t kick me out. Good time in Hampton.

allmyvinyl (5159) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 9, 2013
355ml bottle at home. Pours hazy yellow with a decent white head. Gentle aromas of yeast and cereal, only a faint hint of spice. Taste is smooth and lightly sweet. Bitter taste develops. Not bad.

DruncanVeasey (7379) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Slightly vintage bottle at The New Penguin. Lightly misted gold with a thinning white collar. Muted lemon and lime confectionery aroma (at first) gathering white wine, buttered cider, banana, strawberry, grain and bourbon. Mellow spiced soapy lime flavour with muddled oak and green apple. Some oily peanut malt in the mix; white wine again. Odd but not unpleasant.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - NOV 16, 2013
A yellow body with a large white head that had good retention. Aroma was mild a splint spice note. Mild hints of bubblegum. Flavor was mild. Don't know what I was missing. I could not get any interesting or dominate flavors. Mild carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

trollcat (20) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Essentially like UFO white, except much better. Spices complement the beer well and bring it together.

Draught. This is a nice session brew with a big flavour to keep it exciting.

DrnkMcDermott (2865) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Still wrapping up notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. Tawny yellow color beer. A little bit of head from a small bottle pour. Nose has some bubblegum ester and some yeast to it. Nice Belgian dubbel flavor of light malts and more ester, no distinctive hops. Just settles in very well as a session ale.
