Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2014
Pours yellow with a quickly fading head. Nose shows some Belgian yeast, some farmhouse funky notes, soft vegetal hints and banana. Some of the Belgian and farmhouse notes remain as flavours along with a corn note and apple characters. Carbonation is a bit excessive.

bwa5879 (601) - Portage, Michigan, USA - APR 3, 2014
Super cloudy pale straw yellow with a few inches bright white head. Very creamy aroma, floral hops, pepper, sour lager and Belgian yeasts too. Lively carbonation, thin mouthfeel, crisp dry finish. Belgian yeasts in the taste, leaning more peppery, grapefruit and/or citrus rind too, lots of lemon. Refreshing, citrusy Belgian that’s light. Definitely a keeper.

Can. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of lime leaf, lemon pudding, hay. Light bodied, high carbonation. Sweet hay, lots of zesty citrus, some leaves and pepper. Quenching dry finish.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
[Draft] Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, honey, corn and grains. Taste of toast, grains, toffee malts, lemon, and lightly bitter. Nice, crisp, and simple.

AirForceHops (2945) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 23, 2014
12 oz. can from the Bier Cellar, Portland ME. Lightly hazy yellow with a ridiculous amount of carbonation. Aroma is very subtle yeast and weak floral notes.

Flavor is much like the aroma, subtle. Weak pilsner malt, fruit notes, corn and light citrus pith. Rustic grains, pretty good. The mouthfeel is light and effervescent. Easy to drink for sure. I just did a side by side comparison with Allagash Saison. For me this is a distant second.

Fritz123 (919) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Draft at Hot and Soul in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Pours a golden hazy yellow with a medium white head. Lacing throughout. Great aroma of lemon, lemongrass, grass, cereal and biscuits. Taste is similar with notes of lemon, flowers, and wet grasses. Light body, easy to drink. Finish is floral and citrus with a hint of funk.
