Pours a bright cloudy yellow with lots of white lacing. Aroma of spice ,yeast, hay, and a little banana. Tastes a lot like it smells: spicy, Belgium yeast, esters, banana, with an after kick of alcohol. This is a nice beer, complex but drinkable.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Big lemon honey nose, some biscuit, slight pine. Deep Gold, fluffy head. sweet honey biscuit with a tart and big hop bitter presence--nicely balanced. Big carbonation, medium body, slight funky leather citrus finish, lots of alcohol warmth. Great beer, flavors are huge but controlled well. This will age nicely.

Chipper (303) - Red Lion, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Golden pour with a huge white head and very effervescent. Aromas of spice, hops, fruit, and some yeast. Flavor is super smooth, dry, and has a slight burn for the alcohol, but still exceptionally drinkable.

Bottle shared by BOLTZ. Pours hazy gold with a small white head. The nose is citrus hops and malt. The taste is citrus, apricots, malt and light resin in the finish. Medium mouthfeel. Enjoyed this one a lot. Thanks J!

pours a semi-hazy orange with a large white fluffy head, and some lacing. smell is of sweet fruits, banana, some spice, and farmhouse yeast. taste is somewhat sour, malt, a little yeast, sweet fruits, and a touch of banana, ends a bit on the oily side with some bitterness.

Bottle. <P> Darker-than-expected maize pour with a big white head. Nose is almost saison-like, strong on the lemon and with honey. The citrus dominates the initial impression of the flavor, wow, tons of lemon juice atop lemon zest, pushing into the Fantome vein without the Fantome house character of course. Aggressive spice character, though I canít say that itís coming from anything other than the yeasts. Ample hop close with plenty of alcohol making itself known more in late flavor than in heat. Straight out of the fridge, Iím pleasantly surprised but as the beer warms it gets more buttery and cloying and I have to knock down a point or two. Still, an entirely reasonable outing from the Bruery.

BOLTZ7555 (2823) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2010
Murky honey-like pour produced a fluffy eggshell head that left significant lacing. Nose shows freshly cut grass, bright citrus, fruity and floral, with a bit of yeast present. Flavor is similar with a nice hoppy finish. Nice carbonation that really ignites the palate. Wish this was available in AZ.

Bottled. An unclear dark golden beer with a rocky yellow head. The aroma has notes of hops and malt. The aroma has notes of citrus, malt, and straw, leading to a bitter alcoholic finish.
