Pours from the tap a yellow to light orange with white head. Aroma is more bread and belgian yeast with a little more sweetness. Taste is dry and crisp, refreshing. Banana again and some light hops make this one really easy to drink. Overall, my favorite of their belgian line today.

Clear medium yellow pour, with a fluffy white head. A very nice, light, dry Belgian ale. Bread, peppery, grain, yeast, herbal bitterness, dry banana, and grass. Very drinkable and dry, nice.

badlizard (5538) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
ON tap. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Nice yeasty, fruity, citrus and bread aroma and taste with a good refreshing crispness and a sweet malty finish.

FlacoAlto (3800) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Sampled at Societe; July 2012
Clear, light gold hue, with a frothy, thin, white head. The aroma has an ample earthy spiciness to it, that is not unlike grassy coriander. This is supported by a fruitiness that reminds me of pears and perhaps a touch of melon, as well as some grassy, pale cracker leaning, malt aromatics. The malt plays a clearly supporting role to the yeast / fermentation character.

Slightly sweet, with lots of fruity esters, the beer tastes of green apple, pear, and perhaps a touch of melon. There is a grassy, and herbal straw character here that is a compilation of the malt, some light hop notes and the fermentation character. This has a solid, though light, bitterness to it in the finish, and there is a slightly musty, earthy, spiciness as well as ample, clove like phenolic character that really lingers in the finish.

Not bad, but seems a bit on the “hot” side. It is not actually hot from alcohol, but does seem like the yeast strain might be a bit too characterful for the rest of this beer. Still, this is quite enjoyable.

Schmaltzy (13) - Indiana, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Really light Belgian with light fruit, pepper/earthy hops, light bready yeast. This is just a really light crisp easy drinking Belgian on a hot day. Refreshingly dry, not sweet and a great Belgian extra.

From tap at the brewery. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is light spiced and phenolic. Fruity, light yeasty, citrusy and mild hoppy. Smooth yeasty spiced and crisp hoppy into a dry and lingering fruity finish.

BMan1113VR (7858) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 28, 2012
On tap at the brewery as well as a growler. Pours with a crystal clear golden yellow hued body with a lasting white head that leaves good lace. Aromas are very hoppy, herbal and spicy, grassy. Pretty clean yeast wise, low phenol and even less ester (some dried fruit). Low malt character. Overall pretty clean, a touch peppery, nearly pils like. Flavors are dry, earthy, and crisp. Medium hops (grassy, herbal). Nicely dry and quaffable, low bready malt character, some mineral notes. Clean yeast wise with some peppery phenol. Very drinkable, lively bubbles, crisp with a light body. Excellent beer.

iowaherkeye (2691) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 SS Growler from the brewery. Spicy white pepper aroma with some flowery herbal hops, light Belgian banana esters behind with some cracker malt. Flavor follows suit, some nice hops again with the spicy white pepper pretty prominent. There is some of the fruity yeast, but not too much. Reminds me a bit of Taras Boulba, which I’m told is what the brewers were shooting for, so good on them. Scant sweetness, this finishes nice and dry with earthy bitterness peaking at a 3-4. Pretty tasty. Old rating follows. Tap at Newport Pizza in OB. Clear light yellow gold with a small white head, down to a tattered film. Very dry, Belgian yeasty. Some dry herbal hops. Dry finish, bitterness at 3. Light body mod carb. Nice dry light belgian pale. Will update later.
