RedHaze (371) - Where the hell am I?, Nebraska, USA - JAN 14, 2007
Pours a slightly hazy pale straw color, with a one finger head that settles quickly to a thin cap and ring and leaves behind some thin lacing. Smell; yeasty with strong floral notes, and some traces of pepper. There’s some sweet fruits that I can’t quite place along with a wheat prsence. Taste; very fruity up front, with oranges and pears, and floral. There’s a solid malty biscuity flavor, and candied sugar as well as a strong wheat presence, and finishes with a pleasant peppery spiciness. While this isn’t a big in your face knid of beer, I found myself really enjoying this understated/sublte brew. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied, and very refreshing.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 19, 2006
Hazy old gold color with a fluffy white head. Yeasty, doughy malt and lemon aromas. Citrusy and light with sweet lemon flavors. Finishes quick with a dry, musty, lemonade-like fade. Crisp and tart, but needs more substance.

cchubb (74) - Minneola, Florida, USA - SEP 10, 2006
750 bottle. Had never heard of it, but it was on sale, so it went into the case. Cloudy straw golden color with huge head (especially the second pour) that lasted until the end of the glass. Light and uncomplex with a subtle aroma of straw and spice.
