Born in a dream, Quinannan Falls Special Lager Beer refers to a mythical place in the boreal north. While the waterfall may exist solely in Larry Bellís imagination, the beer he remembered drinking there is now quite real. Quinannan Falls possesses the crisp, dry bitterness youíd expect from a German pilsner, but the use of highly aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest in both the kettle & dry-hop evokes the fragrant pine forests that inspired this beer.

Bells is my favorite brewery. Larry Bell is a god. If you tell me that Larry Bell drank a beer in his dreams and then realized it. I will seek this beer out. I will travel to the ends of the earth and back for a chance to try this beer, and I do this because I know it will be worth it. And it is. Bells is one of those breweries that can do whatever they want however they want and it will always be amazing and this beer is no different. This is hands down the best lager I have ever drank. It Pours a fizzy murky lemonade color, with a thick white head and some lacing. Not much of a nose, a little hops and a lot of citrus and grass. The taste is hoppy too. A citrusy ipa flavor, with a pop-like lager body. If you ever come to a place where you can get a bells one off, do it. I?ll come right out and say it, I HATE lagers and I find this beer amazing. This is how all beers should be, delicious, alcoholic, and highly original. Leave it to Larry Bell.....

Can from Merchants. Aroma is pine, citrus, corn, dusty, fruity, great. Appearance is off white head, clear. Taste is sweet, pine, citrus, corn, bitter, earthy but also fruity, excellent. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, pine and citrus corn aftertaste. Overall, this is quite tasty, and therefore likely to be moved to India Style Lager, because no Premium Lager is this good. 7 4 7 4 15

Slap-on-the-tongue tasty, really dry finish, some of the resinous bark is in the finish to go along with the pine needle aroma. Better icy cold than when allowed to come toward room temps. Poured from a can.

I would much rather drink this than session IPAís. It has the piney-ness of an IPA, but the Lager base smooths things out and makes it very sessionable. Much more so than a session IPA usually is, but it has a lot of the characteristics of an IPA that would be enjoyable. Really like this beer.

Leafs93 (2292) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2017
Pours gold with a small white head. Aroma is earthy, grass, pine and floral. Taste is sweet with a light crisp tartness. Light bodied, smooth and a little sticky. Interesting.

Grabbed this beer simply because it was in cans and I like bells. It pours a tea yellow, tastes of spicy dish water filtered through pine needles and lagered in a shoe. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz 2016 can. Pours with a slightly hazy, pale golden body topped by a generous, frothy white head tha has excellent retention. Plenty of sticky lacing. Aroma: robust and complex for style, with lemony, grassy and herbal aspects. Flavor: hop profile largely follows the aroma but this is also nicely bready. Well-balanced. Bold for style, yet not aggressive.

beer_rookie (554) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pours a mostly clear very pale, almost white color. Cloudy with fine particulate in there. Very thick, fluffy, firm head. About three fingers. Good longevity. Great retention, excellent lacing. Wow!

Aroma is pilsner-esque. More piney. Very fragrant.

Taste is very tasty. Hoppy, a little bitter, especially for a lager. A little alcohol as it warms. Some lemon and lemon zest.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied. A little dry, a little oily. Slight alcohol on the finish.

Overall this is very good. Iím surprised by it. I like it, a lot. Hoppy, fresh, tasty. Iíd recommend it, and I would buy it again.

Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a finger thick white head that quickly disappeared to a ring of bubbles. Aromas are clear and sharp of pine, lemon, and fresh cut grass. Light mouthfeel, very refreshing. Snappy up front bitterness without being overpowering. More lemon and tangy citrus notes with evergreen resin. Good. Very good. Very drinkable and the rather large ABV is very well balanced. I find that most beers north of 6% ABV can be a booze bomb or devine, with little in between. This is the latter.

willisread (3293) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Can from West Side. Pours a deep gold with a finger of foam. Grainy nose with a touch of honey. Saison-like grainy texture on the palate, wheat, malt and honey flavors. Well-balanced. Honey and light hops on the finish.

weihenweizen (3741) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - DEC 15, 2016
On tap at P& Charleston. Clear pale yellow with small white head. Aroma is light malt, light body, medium carbonation, and a little small-bubble lacing. Taste is fresh light hefbal hops and some light malt.
