FlacoAlto (3759) - 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.

Decent Belgian, enjoyed at the Tap Room. Lacy, nice drinkability, with saaz hops.

BlackHaddock (3488) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2014
19th March 2014, San Diego’s old Fish Market Bar, sat on the terrace facing the bay sunning ourselves. One of five beers that we took during a leisurely afternoon. Clear, almost straw blonde in colour with a white covering for a head. Mild citrus front to the nose and taste, obviously an American take on a Belgian Ale because it tastes nothing like what I was expecting (being a Brit who visits Belgium on a regular basis). I did however enjoy it, some hints of yeastiness within the flavours made it semi-interesting and I found it easy to drink while watching the water lap against the shore.

yngwie (13160) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 17, 2013
On tap at the Stone 17th Anniversary Party. A clear pale golden beer with a white head. Pale malts, a generic fruityness and a spiced hint in the aroma. Medium, dry. Nice carbonation. The flavor is mostly on the pale malt side, some fruits and grass kicking in. Some room left for the lightly spiced yeasty touch. Decently bitter finish and flavor. Not extreme in any way, but very drinkable. 130817

mcberko (5999) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2013
On tap at Societe, pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry Belgian hops, dry floral hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour brings out dry biscuity malt and light floral hops. Light and drinkable. Decent, but unspectacular.

brokensail (10635) - 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.
