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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

mds (2250) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 18, 2014
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. 2014-02-10

SDalkoholic (2219) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 17, 2013
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.

Bacterial (2089) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2015
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.

Jesterdeal (1985) - 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.

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.
