75cl. bottle. pours an hazy gold with a substantial head. apple, spicy hops, orange and yeast in tha aromas. flavors of orange candy, apple. spritzy mouthfeel. becoming dry in the finish with a slight orange flavor lingering. kind of a let down in the flavors. I expected a little more. still a good beer.

Decent beer overall but nothing too exciting. Pale, mellow, smooth, inoffensive.

Bottle. Expensive in the 12 pack! A nice ale. The price is hindering. Maybe for the experience only. Love the bottles!

pours clean, blond with an impressive meringue like head. Banana and clove aroma with a hint of honey. Taste is honey with a hoppy aftertaste. Like a duvel but a little thinner in body.

I got this in the limited edition YEAST HOIST ceramic bottle. It was good if a little more citrusy than Id expect. Good beer but I wonder how much of the $11 price is tied into the fancy packaging. Hey, it worked to get my attention and buy it so I guess you cant argue with that.

Pours a hazy amber, particulate/sediment is clearly visible. Had a huge head. Aroma was a nice fruity hoppy mix. The flavour is of alcohol, but the fruity notes balance it nicely, masking the bitterness of the alcohol. The overall flavour wasnt as complex as Id hoped, but still as nice brew.

I wasnt too impressed. Came in a ceramic bottle. The long skinny neck caused problems with smooth pouring, possibly resulting in a slightly more flat beer than it is intended to be: very little carbonation with extremely small bubbles. Not a flavor I appreciated either. Too unremarkable, barely any hoppiness, all too sweet for me.

Overall I was unimpressed. Definately not a bad beer, but did not seem to be enough malts or hops to overcome the taste of alcohol. If I was not in Georgia I would have sworn this thing was 10%.
