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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(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.
