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.

On tap at The Hopping Pig in San Diego. Pours a clear golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma is slight floral. But flavor has some floral and then turns to Chinese take out. Very odd. Almost like fried fish. Very strange. Finishes clean.

Draught at City Beer in San Francisco. Has a restrained aroma of cereal grains. An enjoyable representation of the style. Typical sweetness along with Belgian yeastiness.
Flavourful and very quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Societe tap room: Poured a sparkling golden blonde with a little formation of head which quickly broke down leaving the liquid completely naked. Aroma smells of grainy malts and grassy hay while having a stark similarity to an Imperial pilsner smell. The flavor is grainy with hay yet a taste of corn and rice cereal almost like Crispex yet has a slight addition of Belgian yeast that only suggests a hint of spice. Sort of finishes empty. Aftertaste of laundry soap perhaps.

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.

One of the memorable beers I had during a whirlwind tour of SD breweries with t0rin0. Clear with a nice white head. Crisp earthy hops and Belgian spices. Refreshing and nice.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Clear gold with a fluffy white head and very nice lace. Aromas of yeast, citrus, banana and bread. Sweet bready malt up front, accompanied by flowery hops and yeast. Medium body, lively carbonation, prickly but creamy mouthfeel and a lingering tropical fruit sweetness in the finish.
