Despite the rather silly "too cool for a name" posturing here, this was pretty tasty. I actually had this pegged as a saison - it was spicy and a little sweet, plus some subtle lemony notes. Some white wine, some oh, I don’t know, I’m gonna call it pear, too. Nice stuff...Sampled at the 2010 pre-brewers jam tasting.

Hazy yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Dry wheaty aroma and lemon. Wheat, dry lemon, and a medium bitter. Thin fizzy and watery. Decent drinker.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy light yellow color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of floral dry hops with some hay notes and some lightly sweet malt backbone. Taste is a nice mix between some lightly sweet malt notes with a light bready yeast with some hay and dry floral hoppy notes. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some good carbonation. Not your typical lager but very enjoyable with nice hops profile.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml from Northwest Liquid Gold. Label is *just* short of being really cool, but kudos for the effort. Very pale pour, with a big rocky cone of a head. Nose is soft and fairly understated, with ripe yeast, rind, and a hint of herbal bitterness. Full carbonation makes the body almost a bit too lively, but it was nice. Flavors were still just a bit muted, making this a not quite imperialized lager that’s very heavy on the lemon zest. Works for me.

Bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! Great premium lager, without a doubt the best I have ever had. Lots of lemon, some honey,herbal and spicy hops. This beer had amazing retention. I would play Edward 40 Hands with this.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright cloudy lemon rind yellow with one of the most stable head formations I’ve ever seen. Billowing white head. Nose is interesting, almost tart, lemongrass and a light bready sweetness. Spicy zesty flavor with notes of citrus rind, white pepper, and bread dough. Crisp palate with a a light body.

Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a cloudy light golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is faint spice and funky grains. Saison like. Dry spice and leaves with a nice tingle over the tongue. Bitter finish.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light grainy gold, tons of carbonation, not a gusher but beware when you pour, bright creamy white head, good lacing... the nose reminds me of a saison, lager yeast, citrus, lemons, and hay, pretty outstanding... the taste is more saison notes, yeast, lemons, with a musky light sour finish... this is a great sessionable beer
