Super hoppy nose with citrus and herbs, some light honey and a touch of past. Taste is very dry, moderately bitter, lots of herbs and fresh citrus, somelight juicy sweetness at the end. Fantastic stuff, could drink all day.

Pour is a hazy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a little funky with some lemon citrus. Flavor is more funkiness with some herbal hops and some bitter lemon. Finish is bone dry and very clean. I donít know what style they were trying for here but who cares this works. A very dry easy drinking beer with plenty of funk and flavor with low alcohol.

CanIHave4Beers (3142) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 14, 2013
Pours very pale and very hazyÖ 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. Itís very inviting.

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

Palate is light and livelyÖ. itís got a cool balance of lightness but enough carbonation to keep you sipping instead of slamming this real sessionable brew.

Yep, sheís a shelf beer.

joeneugs (3107) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2013
12 oz. can. It pours a hazy yellow color with a nice white head that shrinks to a thin layer. The aroma is potent with salt and pepper, slight clove and bubblegum sweetness and dry, spicy, floral hops. Kind of smells like a hefe/saison hybrid. The flavor is super dry, spicy, crisp and refreshing. The citrusy hop bitterness in the finish melds nicely with the peppery spicy yeast. Very nice beer.

Fort Walton can. Nice refreshing beach ale. A little sweetness, a little citrus and a decent hit of bitterness. Nice session ABV too. Good.

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.

maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 8, 2014
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. Itís 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.

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.

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