Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 28, 2014
Can: The aroma is rather light and consists of light fruit, grass, and lemon peel. It pours a hazy dull yellow with a three finger soapy head that has pretty good retention before fading to a very thin ring. Thereís a good amount of clumpy lacing on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a slight hint of citrus with some faint bready notes. The finish has light grass with a touch of lemon peel. Itís light bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, an okay summer thirst quencher. Why is this listed as Specialty Grain?

TheAlum (5909) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a hazy golden orange hue, a bit dulled in the middle with some nice glow on the edges. Frothy offwhite head sits atop and laces ok. Aromas are a bit fruity, apple and rustic grains, a bit of crusty bread, spicy yeast and a bit of gentle funk, earthiness. Initial is a bit fruity, gentle fuzziness and mellow yeast. Touches of fruit, gentle estery and tree fruit. A bit of warmth, some gentle pear and melon, faint bubblegum. Backend is a bit of spice, faint soap and citrus. Mellow yeast, bready malt and a bit of honeycrisp. Finish is smooth, cool, and fruity. Not bad.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Can. Itís an unclear, orange-colored beer with a creamy, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma is faintly spiced and quite citrusy, not much maltyness going on. Some resiny, grassy notes too. Itís full-bodied and soft on the palate, quite dry too. Flavorwise itís just like drinking a saison, with the yeastyness, spicyness and citrusy flavors. Pine cones and bitterness, lasting for a good while. Canít say I really catch this one, but itís sure a fine and refreshing one. 140621

ClubGonzo (4226) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 19, 2014
Can from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a hazy dark-hued straw yellow body with a large creamy white head. Nose is Belgian ale yeast, white sugar, bubble gum, maize and hints of straw. Taste is straw, bitter herbs, Belgian estery sugar-ish tones and hints of pale malts, maize and hints of floral honey notes. Medium to light body, medium to high carbonation. Donít really know what to expect from this beer, but it was rather fresh and drinkable, regardless.
