3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Map Room, Chicago. Cloudy golden amber, robust clingy head. Hearty, fruit-kissed cereal aroma. Bready, husky grainy flavour, really tasty and malty. Hints of beguiling fruit, I’m guessing from the yeast. Tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2010 Draught at Map Room. Hazy gold with a mountain of white head. This is a serious looking beer. The aroma is lightly yeasty and hoppy with a creamy, sweet malt component. The hops are apparent but minty and herbaceous in a mellow way The flavor is lighter in bitterness but still well balanced and creamy. Even though the bartender said this keg was nearing its one month drink by date (try finding that in another European beer over here) I still though it had a very nice fresh yeasty quality.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2010 On tap at the Map Room in Chicago. Wow I loved this beer. Unfiltered and unpasturized, making for a bright hazy yellow poor. Yeasty aroma, flavor is bready, light hops and citrus, yeast, some malts, with a lovely refreshing finish of corn and some grass. Something about it made me want to chew it, despite not really being a thick and chewy beer. Refreshing, delicious, and easy to drink--what’s not to love?

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2010 Tap at maproom. Pours a hazy golden yellow with a big soapy white head. A beautiful beer. Aroma of fresh cut grass, hay, cooked vegtables, and wheat. Flavor is doughy lemon, fruity earth., brigjht carbonation. Well crafted. Flavors flow and mold together nicely. Liked this quite a bit. Liked it so much, in fact, that I ignored them at the bar for 23 minutes because I couldn’t wait to post this. And they’re the reason I came here! The irony makes my weiner hard -- or is it this awesome ass beer?!
