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.

Nice, clean taste. Not overly sweet, the cream adds a lot to the beer. Awesome cams, the artwork is some of the best Iíve seen.

Mild aroma of yeast esters, pours a cloudy light amber with a quickly fading thin white head. Mild grain flavor, with a touch of perceived sweetness from the yeast esters. Light bodied, easy drinking, but not my favorite twist on the Cream Ale style.

Hazy golden beer with a loose white head. Light orange and spice nose. The first taste I get out of this beer is water. There is some stale orange peel citrus and a spice note that I like, but in general this is not something I want to drink again.

Spicy slightly yeasty aroma and an orange, cloudy appearance.
Tight effervescence on the palate. Plenty of spice but a bit watery. Maybe just not my style.

Maybe this was old and maybe it wasnít. Poured a cloudy yellow color with white head the aroma was a muddle of what was suppose the be Belgian along with a dirtiness if what was suppose to be cream ale. This experience was a drain pour. Awful in all respects.

On tap at Warped Wing on 4/12/15. Hazy orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma of orange, coriander and creamy malt. Citrus and pine flavor with some coriander before a creamy malt finish. Very much a Belgian wit, and a good one.

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 Endoís, 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.

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.
