Thanks to aapp for sending this bottle out my way. Served in a Mikasa tulip. Pour a hazy light copper with a thin white head and some spotty lacing. The nose has some faint earth and light bread. The flavor is mildly malty with a bit of earth. Grain and bread crust. Nothing really coming from the yeast. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not terribly impressive, unfortunately.

Thanks djrn. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a one finger sandy tan head. Nose is acidic and lightly grainy, notes of cherry skin and cereal grain. Kind of slick... Grainy with a soy saucy character. Weird esters and acidity in there. Light bodied and slick on the finish. meeeehhhhhh

ben4321 (4093) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/27/12, Batch 1, Bottled Jan 2012

Aroma: The nose has some sweet malts, caramel, bread, Belgian yeast, earth, and hints of fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky looking orange-brown color with a beige head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste mostly sweet, with similar components to the nose, and a latter earthy spice feel
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a soft carbonation, some stickiness, and a fairly lengthy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent one. It wasn’t exactly an extremely Belgian offering, but there were some clearly Belgian components. Thus far, this was my favorite thing I’ve tried from White Birch (but that isn’t a huge compliment).

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 11, 2012
Shared by emacgee. Muddy orange copper with no head, light off white lace. Nose of faint muddled red fruit, cereal grains, dirty basement. Flavor is quite awful. More dirty basement, grain, soy, really hard to drink. Dump.

A style I really like. A hoppy amber beer. Very clean well made, I’m just a big had of strong american hops with a good malt background

AirForceHops (3515) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 5, 2011
22 oz bottle, purchased @ Smiley’s, Dover, NH. Used shaker glass. Amber color. Light retention. Nose of Belgian yeast and caramel malt. The relationship between the yeast and the malt mingles real well. Taste balances nice between sweet and hoppy. Bread and some Earthy hop notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation. I didn’t know what to expect from this one, decent. Some good drinkability.
