Skyview (6039) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 22, 2008
Sampled at Cellars Wine & Spirits in St Paul, MN, and shared by brewfiend. Pours a semi-hazy golden brew with an average off-white head that quickly dissipates to a fine film. Aroma of light golden grain malt, some citrus zest and grassy hop character and a touch of apricots. Taste is medium bodied, some light carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some citrus hops, white grape and some fruity pear. Finish is semi-sweet, fruity aftertaste that slowly disappears with a light grapefruit finish.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2007
The body is a hazy light ambered toppede with a thick, well sustained solid head that does some fine lacing. The aroma is sweet and yeasty backed by scents of roses, citrus and dark fruits, honey, and hot spices. It has a complex merging of flavors, liberally spiced, and has a wheaty tartness to wrap it up. Dry finish. Refreshing and tasty.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 5, 2007
Poured a hazy orange with chunky yeast floaties. The aroma was sweet with notes of flowers, spicey cracked pepper, orange skin, toast, and a hint of honey. Decent complexity. The flavor was sweet and almost ginger ale like. Spicey with a wet finish.

3.3
FlacoAlto (4182) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 11, 2008
This is the weirdest looking 750ml bottle I have ever seen; squat and almost like the new Sierra Nevada 24oz bombers, but thicker & different. The beer pours with a frothy, initially three-finger thick, light tan colored head. The beer is a hazy, honey amber color, but shows a lightly reddish tinged, fully hazy, orange-gold color when held up to the light. The aroma is light and spicy with aromas of lemon zest, orange blossoms, light honeysuckle, a touch of lavender and even some light ginger and pepper towards the end. This has a very floral aroma and it is quite inviting. A little bit of digging around reveals some malt influenced aromas of honey-malt, crushed saltine crackers.

Very dry, in fact one of the most dry tasting beers I have ever had. It is so dry that it tastes lightly tart and has a pepper-like flavor from a zippy carbonation. It is actually a bit fizzy, but it is so light that it does not feel gassy. The floral notes really come through as a nasal influence during each sip. Cracker & bread like malt mixes with touches of ginger some sourness (perhaps from the elderberries as this is more than just a typical yeast influence), and a light pepper hit in the long finish. Flavors of rose hip tea mix in with the general floral notes to provide a bit of herbal character that mimics the function of hops. Despite being so light, the malt character really does come through quite well here, especially as it warms.

I like that this is very easy drinking, it also has an interesting blend of flavors and aromatic notes (the nose more than the flavor though), but for some reason it is not nearly what I hoped it would be.

pours a murky light orange color with a huge creamy off-white head. little bit of sediment floating in glass. aroma of flowery hops and black pepper. aroma is somewhat similar to a fantome saison. flavor has notes of hops, pepper, bread, peanut brittle, grapes and berries. light bodied. hint of tartness on the palate. seems more like a summer beer than winter.
