Boutip (4656) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 15, 2013
Bottle: Poured a light yellow color ale with a large pure white bubbly head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of light rustic malt notes with some dry hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by rustic malt notes with light dry ester and some bready yeast notes are also noticeable. Body is light with great carbonation. Very much enjoyable if maybe a bit short on the complexity notes with great drinkability level.

Pours a lightly hazy golden with a large foamy white head that left sticky lacing. Aroma of spicy saison yeast, lots of citrusy hop notes some floral and tropical fruits. Smells like a hoppy saison. Flavor of honey, corn, very dry, some bubblegum and spicy saison notes. The citrusy hop notes as there but not as prominent as they are in the nose.

Best ’I Wish I Was Budweiser’ beer I’ve ever had! Funny brew to me, aiming to be a pissy yellow lager beer, but turned out to be a slighty tasty yellow aley brew. Would be good in summer!

12 ounce can. Pours a cloudy yellow color with a large white head. A sweet lemon nose with some grain. I like this beer: smooth corn, pils malt, lemon, a bit of orange peel. Spicy and smooth. Easy to drink. Nice brew. Saison like.

wenigc (1) - Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2013 does not count
Light, crisp, mildly hoppy. Easy drinking. Good hot weather beer. Not alot of body. More a summer beer or for times where social drinking means drinking more than usual, 4.5% alc.

TheBeerGod (5184) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Can. Hazy blond with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is strong floral hops, sweet malt, soft corn notes, light grains and herbal hops. Taste reinforces the floral hops along with more herbal hops, soft citrus, corn notes, sweet malt, grains and sourdough bread notes. Body is light-medium with a bubbly carbonation and lingering hop bitterness. Ends with big floral hops, citrus, herbal hops, earthy notes, corn, sweet malt, bread dough and grains.

Decided this would be a great Football beer. Low abv, drinkable, tasty, and cool. Straw pour. Aroma of peppery yeast with pear, lemon, and some corn pilsner pale malts. Taste was nice and mellow adding some banana and clove flavor. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Pours a hazy yellow with a big bone white head with great lacing. Aroma is lemon and lime with some apple and a hint of juicy fruit. Taste is lemon zest, apple and hay. Some minerality mid palate with some pepper and grassy hop flavor. Finishes amazingly dry and clean, inviting you to take another sip. Mouthfeel is crisp and light medium bodied with high carbonation that scrubs your palate. Very drinkable and refreshing with complimentary flavors that work well with the dryness and aren't overwhelmed by the carbonation. I can definitely see myself buying a six pack to enjoy during warmer months or drinking this as a table beer.

12oz can from "Lifesource" Salem OR $2.59 Very hazy yellow coloured beer with a sticky.clingy white head. Aroma has phenolics,over ripe pear,roses,..unusual and unexpected! Taste us different again very "bubbly",some spice,pepper and a bit of bitter apple, good but not as good as the aroma! mouth feel is overall thin very dry tangy ginger root end! weird beer a meld of different styles..still OK in my book.

CanIHave4Beers (3198) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very pale and very hazy… straw colored with a big long lasting head and good lacing on the glass.

Aroma is earthy, doughy, & lightly fruity. The beer has a nice citrus rind character and some nice leafy and grassy happiness. It’s very inviting.

The flavor is very dry, extremely pleasant in bitterness with soft fruity and doughy flavors. I love the hop character here… not fruity really at all much more of a grassy & leafy hoppiness, bold but not brash.

Palate is light and lively…. it’s got a cool balance of lightness but enough carbonation to keep you sipping instead of slamming this real sessionable brew.

Yep, she’s a shelf beer.
