Pours a murky straw-golden color with a short antique white head. Earthy pilsener aroma. Pretty crisp, but a medium fullness confuses the palate a bit. Taste mirrors the nose. Pretty uneventful.

Cloudy gold beer with a small white head. Slightly soft palate, little dry. Slightly watery and wheaty malt. Insipid spice and barely there citrus. Dry finish. Dull as dishwater!

Gold to light amber color with small head that died fast. Smells slightly of citrus. T aste is a bit spicy with some bread flavors. Texture was thin and watery. pretty average brew, not bad but not great. A shame too because for the cost of these four cans I was expecting something great. So overall it was a total miss because of an average brew with a big price tag.

Beerman6686 (3870) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2013
This one poured a lightly hazy yellow color with a white head. Aroma was of light belgian spices, and really no much else. Flavor was watery, lightly sweet, with mild belgian character to keep it from being a plain wheat beer. meh.

12oz can from Binnyís Lakeview. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is lightly sweetened, bready wheats with a good amount of orange citrus. Somewhat yeasty with a few banana notes, some light pepper, and a few florals. Flavor is similar. Somewhat yeasty with banana esters, a light pepper, and a few florals alongside a lightly sweetened, grainy, bready wheat malt backing. Finishes clean, lightly bitter, citrusy, a bit yeasty, and somewhat bready before leaving a fairly lengthy aftertaste. Medium, smooth body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, this was a pretty solid Belgian Ale. Bready and wheaty with a light sweetness, but clean and balanced with some yeasty esters, a light spicing, and a light hopping. Nice beer.

12 ounce can
Iím not sure what happened here but thanks to Santa anyways for the tick. A watery mess that meanders all over the place this was either a bit past its prime or simply not a good release to begin with. Give it a miss and try Southern Starís better offerings instead.

Aroma / Appearance - The semi-transparent coppery base supports wispy flecks of eggshell head. It looks as flat and uninspiring as it tastes. The sweet nose is mainly lemons, apples, and oranges with little to no cohesiveness.

Flavor / Palate - A thin bodied Belgian fades mercifully quick. It is forgettable even immediately after the sip hits the tongue. Three to four ounces was all I needed to make my decision. A good effort, this one falls short in almost all respects.

Can, courtesy Brigadier, thanks! Hazy straw gold pour, white head, some retention/little lace. Aroma is light ester, cereal grain, grass. Taste is cereal grains, grass, lemon, light tart. Palate is quite watery, slick, light finish. Definitely a lawnmower beer.
