3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: A pale golden/yellow color with a mild haze and a thin white head on top.
S: The typical Belgian yeast esters from the Bruery in this one. A bit of spice and bready with just a touch of hops.
T: A sweet and bready flavor initially with a subtle earthy hop bitterness. There is maybe a bit of a tartness to the beer as it warms in the glass.
M: The body is certainly light on the tongue (at least in part due to the rice), with a full carbonation.
D: Not my favorite of the Humulus series beers, but definitely one of the easiest to drink. A really nice, light, spring/summer beer.

Light gold pour at the brewery. White head. Grain, sweetness, fruit, rice, I’m getting a small amount of coconut. Light mouthfeel. I’m not a big fan of this.

Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Pours a clear, bright yellow with a fluffy, poofy, white head that has good retention and lace. Mint and bubblegum in the nose. Taste is sweet, full of mint, licorice, sage. A little weird. Sticky palate. Was heavily disliked by a few people.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on tap at the Brewery (or is it the Bruery?) on 7/9/2010. This beer pours a lightly yellow gold color from the tap. Medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, coconut, herbal and spicy. A light to medium bodied specialty grain beer. The malts are fruity and grainy. A touch of coconut, some herbal grains and a hint of rice ( but in a good way). Nice carbonation. Light and crisp. Good balance. A touch of citrusy fruitiness at the finish. Nice summer beer. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the Bruery. Rating #16. Another light colored drinker with a nice little white head. Aroma was light grains, mild hops. Flavor was much the same, not quite as good as the Filthy Blonde, but another nice little drinker. (1287)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Bruery. Pours with a hazed pale golden body and a large white head. Aroma is quite fruity, mango, coconut, tropical fruit, herbal hops. Very much like a hoppy american saison. Taste is dry and freuity, herbal and hoppy. Lovely hop profile and extremely drinkable. Lively bubbles and very dry mouthfeel. Good session beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ Brouwer’s; pale, straw gold with faint haze and thin white head lingering; lemony cream, stale grains, grassy hops; light husky character with crisp, fresh mouthfeel; smooth, almost creamy texture despite it’s very light flavor; sharp lemon peels and pale malt; light, simple and lovely; bone dry finish with husky malt and yeast; my fav of the small lineup of Bruery beers
