3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
4 ounce sample on tap at the Davis Beer Shoppe. The aroma has a fair amount of banana esters and a distinct dustiness. Fairly fruity. Body is a moderately hazy golden color with a smallish, off-yellow head. Starts spicy, dry, and quite carbonated. Very bubbly--champagne-esque. Becomes fruity with mild yeast dusty esters. Strong carbonation throughout. Fairly drinkable, but it would be more drinkable if the carbonation was toned down. The carbonation hides the flavors and creates a bit of a one-dimensional beer.

On draft at Craft. Pale yellow looking with lively carbonation. Very refreshing taste with a wheat beer-esque finish. Smells quite herbal, but I couldn’t put my finger on it.

Aroma is Poperingse hop and Belgian yeast, touch of swamp.
Flavour is mild hop with light malt. Highly drinkable, but nothing special.

Hazy golden with a large white head. Lightly spiced aroma, yeast, a bit of hops, and light fruits. Sweet fruits, light spices, a bit of wheat, a bit of citrus, and floral. Medium, carbonated body. Pretty fun brew but not an everyday drinker.
