Sampled at the 2012 American Craft Beer Festival. The spicy yeast stood out in this. A good beer for the style.

On tap at Cerveceria Mateveza. Hazy blonde pour with a one-finger whitish head. The aroma is nice and true to style, with Belgian yeast, honey, and pale malt. Some floral hops. The flavor is good and balanced. Not too sweet or hoppy, with pale malt, maybe some candi sugar, Belgian yeast, and a mild floral and citrusy hop note. Medium-bodied with higher carbonation and a pleasant lively mouthfeel. A very good example of the style.

reggiedunlop (3697) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Pours a hazy very pale yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is lightly grassy. Flavor is straw and grassy with just a touch of hoppy spice. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is dry and abrupt. Somewhat boring.

Draft at Jerrys. Yellow with big, creamy, white head / Elegant nose of malolactic fermentation, honey, resin, and candied citrus / Medium body, creamy with soft carbonation, moderately sweet and resinous, with good hop balance and long finish / Perfumey flavors of honey, violets, passion fruit, pear, oak, and bubblegum / Just great.

Derek881 (1265) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2012
I sampled this beer on draft at Maxs Taphouse in Baltimore, Maryland, served in a snifter glass. The beer had a somewhat-cloudy, straw-orange/yellow, with a large, bubbly white head that had very good retention and ample cling and lacing. The aroma featured crisp notes of floral, pine, and citrus hops, along with yeast and some sweet malty scents too. The beer is fairly sweet and has touches of fruity and floral effects to go with a slight citrus bitterness. Its a fairly wet beer with good carbonation, and has a lighter feel and is a touch thin.

Growler of unknown age: Butter smell. Cloudy yellow, thin head. Corn and butter flavor. Grassy finish. Bad sample, needs re-rating.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 30, 2011
On tap at Pinocchios. Murky straw colored with white foamy head. Yeasty aroma. Lots of pilsner like flavors in this, hay and grass with sweet bready malt. A sweet and zingy tang imparted from the Belgian yeast. Pretty enjoyable.

Draught at Churchkey. Great Belgian dough and spice notes, very light and amazingly refreshing considering the ABV. Very very well done.
