Pours a hazy very pale yeloow with a medium white head...nice retention and lacing. Aroma has nice light funkiness...subtle. flavor follows suit and adds light grass and spice...nice subtle funk! Mouthfeel is light and silky with a dry and grassy finish.

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.

UPDATED: APR 16, 2014 Can from Mane Liquor. Gets perfect appearance caus the can looks epic. Nose is full of sweet Belgian yeast, banana, mango and mild grass. It’s like a hop loaded Belgian ale. Loads if mango and banana with heavy zest and Belgian yeast. A touch biscuity with mild herbal notes and lemony bitterness. Goes down an absolute treat. So clean and refreshing. I can see it possibly getting a touch sweet but works well as something other than an IPA in a can. Tasty beverage

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.

12 ounce can thanks to lukaduke. Pours a hazy yellow with a big white head of foam. Good retention. Aroma has some vibrant fruity notes with some cracker coming through as well. Taste is on the sweeter side. Spritzy carbonation tingles on the tongue. Bready finish. Very light body. Crisp and refreshing.

rumproasts (2586) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 7, 2014
can. Golden yellow with one finger head. Dry with citrus, particularly lemon. Slight funk and a bit of a hoppy bite. Light, but with excellent flavor.

Not a bad basic beer. Has some corny sweetness, but it’s a bit too mild for its own good. Light and crisp.

Can. Pours hazy yellow, medium white head and nice lacing. Aroma is lemon, pepper, yeast, grain, corn. Flavor is light sweet, herbal and peppery, touch of zest. Medium body, high carbonation. Drinks like a saison actually.

DialSquare (2310) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2013 Rating #1900: can from Proof. Yellow pour with visible carbonation, a huge bright white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is pleasant yeast, grain, musty lemon/citrus, pepper. Tastes are straw, pepper, grass, herbal, tropical citrus. Slightly dry moderately bitter finish. Drinkable. Nice that it’s in 6 packs -- good alternative to our typical ipa sixers.

A bright and light yellow with lots of bubbles. Aroma is potpourri and I get herbal notes and vanilla in the taste. Taste lingers pleasantly. Flowery as well.
