Mini-growler. Aroma first hints at softer and sweet yeast esters. Some light fruit notes: banana peel and tart green apple skin. Quiet malt hiding underneath the predominantly yeasty aroma. Some dried grass and cut flower hop aromas in the background. Coriander and other vague spices emerge as the beer warms. Pours a thick, hazed dark gold with a frothy bright white head. Delicate and soft on the tongue. Silken and velvety mouth feel. Doughy malt and yeast phenols being the most dominant flavors. Plenty spicy and plenty fruity as well. Very drinkable with a long, grassy and slightly sweet finish. Nice. Thanks Larry! j12601 (12000) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 29, 2008
On tap at the brewery tasting room. Pours a clear amber which, yes, looks quite golden. Small amount of a soft white head which vanishes rather quickly. Spice on the nose, possibly coriander, and malt and a nice amount of yeast. Body is medium thick and a bit sweet. Finish is reminiscent of the nose, light and yeasty, with just a touch of balancing bitterness.

Draft. Poured a topazy gold. Some spice and other stuff, malt. Pretty drinkable I think. joebudzjoe (676) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 8, 2008
@ the brewery. This belgian ale tastes more is a bad-ass cousin of what i’ve usually tried from this style. Thick syrupy texture with banana undertones; spices present as well. BeerEmperor (3) - , Connecticut, USA - AUG 2, 2008 does not count
This may be one of the worst I’ve ever tried. It smells like perfume, it tastes like perfume. I almost thought that it had gone bad, but the bartender and the manager assured me it was supposed to taste like this. I think I will pass.

Draft at CL. Clear, bright gold body with a soft white head. Nose of halfway eggy dough and candy sugar (semi-sour) and halfway corn, hay and dried crackers. Some strange notes of cleaner or bleach, but somewhat soft and I think a result of the yeast. Flavor shows more of this eggy yeast character, some dryness, some pastiness and some other odd flavors. A husky sour grain/mash flavor throughout, even some lactic wheat notes. Strange beer, not really enjoyed as much as expected. graham515 (537) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 22, 2008
Pours a murky yellow into the glass with white head. Aroma is citrusy and spicy like coriander. Taste is like witbier but with more hop bitterness and less spice. Seems like they wanted to make a beer like a witbier. I don’t understand why they didnt just make one. Pwn3d (1962) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2008
Draft at House of Brews. Very good. Pours slightly cloudy golden body. Aroma is like a lesser Fin du Monde. Taste is citrus, malt, and very smooth. beastiefan2k (3981) - HdG (past: NYC, KS, Rain City), Maryland, USA - JUN 15, 2008
Gotmos got a keg of this last night for a party, which gave me the opportunity to rate this "properly." Since this beer is tap only drinking only 14-16oz in a bar can’t possibly provide enough of a sample to understand the beer. So I sat there trying to drink this beer from the beginning of the keg to the end, the really understand the nature of this brew. It pours well looking enough with a clear, bright golden color and a large strong head. The beer is definitely Belgian inspired with a nice yeast sweetness followed by peach skin and orange like flavors. The hops play a background role and contribute light citrus and light sweet hoppiness to back up the Belgian aspect. The none Belgian qualities are represented in a much cleaner malt profile. Its easy to drink, I mean I tried to sit for hours and drink the whole container so I could not "cheat": a rating out of it but eventually I had to pass out.pineypower (3330) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - JUN 14, 2008
1/2 keg from Gotmos, mason jar.
Thanks to Spacecoyote’s crew at Weyerbacher for pouring this one. Pour out golden color with a moderate off white head. Aroma is of lots of fruit, banana, yeast and some citrus. Taste is nice and well balanced, citrus, sweet fruits and some yeast and slight spice also.
