COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is dry, spiced and phenolic. Smooth malty and yeast fruity. Lingering malty and fruity flavoured. Mild phenolic dryness into a mild spiced finish.

Poured a hazy yellow white color with a thin head. The aroma was of acetone. It smelled like magic bubbles. Tart dull flavor that was acidic on the back of the throat. Something is a miss.

Courtesy of markwise. It pours hazy sandy straw with thin white head. The aroma is skunky, moldy, heated, fuzzy with mold limes that you wish would just go away. The taste begins thin and refreshing and sweet then moving into notes like roting citrus fruit, moldy citrus gag bile and moldy citrus fuzziness. Interesting. I think I like it.

Wow. The ratings are really divided on this one. I thought it was a standout. Pours like white grapefruit juice with a white head. Nose is tart citrus, sugar, and some acetone. Flavor is citrus, sugar, and tartness with hints of boozy acetone. Finishes with lingering tartness. Similar qualities to a good berliner weiss.

After reading some of the ratings, I thought that this wasn’t the beer that I tried. I guess I had a "good" bottle. Pours light orange. Nose is mild earthy hops, tart acidity, sour grapes and unripe fruits. Flavor was sharp acidity, sour fruits, tart cherry, funk and HUGE lactic sourness. In hindsight, I this bottle was heavily infected, but I think it worked as a sour ale oddly enough. Happy accident? I guess based on style and quality, it doesn’t deserve high marks at all, but based on initial taste, I actually really enjoyed this but I’m really confused. Was this supposed to be sour?
