On tap at the brewery. Clear light yellow pour with a white head. Grass and hay bouquet. Hay and the Belgian yeast kinda overrun the hop notes. Average body and mouthfeel.

Pale color with fluffy head. Aroma is belgian yeast with lots of spices and banana and herbs. Taste is sweet and a bit syrupy. Not for me.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
