Pours cloudy yellow with a thin almost oily head. Immediate taste of bread yeast and corn? This has a sweet mild allspice finish. At Dark Horse tavern.

Real hazy golden with a white head. Coriander, slight clove, a bit of citrus fruit, yeast. Rather full bodied. Interesting. Kind of like a light Belgian wit.

Can at Endo’s, solo tasting to clear space in the suitcase, 11/11/14.
Lightly hazed golden with a moderate odd white swirl and edgeing.
Nose is pale malt, light Belgian yeast touch, tangerine, straw, spice.
Taste comprises lemon rind, vanilla, caramel, light yeast esters.
Medium bodied, creamy feel, smooth, semi drying close.
Adeqaute Belgian if a touch formulaic and boring.

16 ounce can
A solid if unremarkable cream ale gets the job done without much fanfare. For a fledgling brewery from central Ohio there are worst experiences. I might not go out of my way to buy more releases but would definitely stop in at the tasting room if driving through Dayton.
Aroma / Appearance - A semitransparent golden core shimmers with a fresh snowy head. Vanilla, orange cream, and a gentle foundation of cotton candy brighten the air with yeasty esters.
Flavor / Palate - Bubbly vanilla tickles the tongue before a quick transition to ginger ale and honey. Doughy textures stick to the throat with a sweetnesss that grows over time. The blend of Belgian and cream ale mostly works but ultimately this forgettable beer does not muster enough interest to merit a purchase of a full four pack.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Cloudy orange pour with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. NIce aroma of pulpy lemon juice, lemongrass, light banana, crackers, and ultra light funk. Tastes more watery than expected. Grains, lemon juice and lemongrass mostly. Light bready malt. Thin to medium body. Not bad. Not sure exactly what they were going for but this was relatively enjoyable.

Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is of yeast, lemon, and banana. Flavor is crisp with the yeast, lemon, banana, and earthy tones. Nice, crisp finish as well, Overall a nicely balanced brew.

16oz can from Savor Pint. Murky yellow-gold pour with a thin white ring. Aroma is yeasty with lemon and a little spice. Tastes are crackers, pepper, zesty citrus, lemon, clove. Nice taste, but like the other WW we just tried it’s got a weak texture - low carbonation, slightly watery palate.

Underwhelmed by it in every way possible but flavor. It does taste pretty damn good and hits all the notes you'd want on that front.

Draft at Jackie o’s. Pours a slightly hazy yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have yeast, mild citrus, peppery spice, some pale bready, crackery malts. I apparently was not as big a fan of this as some of my friends. Thought it was average at best.

on tap @ Firehouse Grill / Cincinnati OH --- Cloudy, dirty pale straw, thin head cover, dots and blobs of lace. Taste is sweet n’ sour malt that adds orange, lemongrass, and spice during the palate, becoming slightly bitter in the finish. More like a lemon shandy than a cream ale (starting with the color). Good for a hot day; otherwise very average.
