COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with rice and finished with Sterling hops, this is another light, easy drinking beer. The rice lends a pleasant coconutty character, and overall the beer is crisp with mild herbal and citrus hop flavors.

I had this on tap at The Bruery. It’s very light, kind of like a lawnmower beer (sorry, Patrick & Tyler). It was OK, but nothing special.

Tap at the Second Anniversary. This was certainly interesting and quite light. Pours golden with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and light, and inviting. Taste is nice and hoppy and bright with a taste of rice.

Sampled on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a bright, transparent yellow with a thin white head. Nose is floral, perfume, sweet. Flavor is sweet, grainy without being bready, almost smells like white flour, a little bland. Finish is bland with just a little lasting sweetness.

Good amount of sparkly carbonation here. The Belgian yeast takes over from there and pretty much obliterates any subtle flavors. The taste really lingers on the back of the tongue.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - MAY 14, 2010
Tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of spicy and fruity hop notes, reminds me of a saison, bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, lots of citrusy and some spicy hop notes, very dry, moderate bitterness and again that saison feel.

Pale yellow color with fleeting head. Nice fruity, berry sweet aromas with rice pudding. Light bodied. Nice dry grainy rice cracker, lightly sweet berry flavors with pale malts, crisp, bitter finish. budweiser should taste like this.

(fest rating) Draft @ Boonville Beer Fest. Pours a very light straw color; effervescent; hazy, with bright, fine white bubbles, solid lacing; attractive pour. Very bright lemony and grassy hop aroma, not overly bitter, just bright and juicy; very dry core with just a touch of husky rice notes. Medium-light body; lively carbonation, lightly creamy; lots of citrusy, herbal hop flavor with a modest amount of zesty bitterness; very light core, suggestive of rice, beautifully dry; crisp, nicely hopped light beer with plenty of hop character and a well-placed bitterness without overwhelming the quiet malt core; really enjoyable, dry, hoppy, tasty stuff. Lasting, dry finish of citrus and herbal notes, moderately toasty; yum.
