Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Light golden pour with a slick of white foam and steady, semi-aggressive carbonation. Aroma is minimal hops and a pleasant yeast character with slight clove followed by a clean malt profile. Taste is soft clove, light yeast esters, minimal banana, pepper, and complimentary hop bitterness through the finish. Clean mouthfeel going from smooth to crisp. Understated beer but well crafted and quite enjoyable.

(Draught) Pours a clear pale yellow with a medium white head. Aroma of lemongrass, yeast, earth, and light baseball card package bubblegum. Flavor of yeast, grass, citrus, pepper, and pear with a crisp, bitter finish.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Sampled at GABF 2012. Didn’t make much of an impression. I will have to head to the brewery and try under more sedate surroundings for a better review. Just not much flavor or zing.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Aroma of champagne, slight banana pudding and sourdough. Pours light blonde with film. Tastes of white grape and tart yeast. Bright mouthfeel makes this a nice drink.

brokensail (12169) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 16, 2012
Golden in color with a finger of white head. Some weird mustard powder aroma. Grainy, a bit of straw, and some bready malt, and floral notes. A light yeastiness, some white pepper, and maybe a bit of pear. The flavor is lightly dry with a lot of cracker malts, grain, bread, and yeast. Just a bit of white pepper and spice, and maybe some of the same mustard powder note.

thome50 (1153) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
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.

JohnnyJ (4729) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2012
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 (5535) - 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 (3810) - 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.
