22 oz. bottle from Midtown Liquors in Tulsa. Pours a cloudy amber with some orange and red tints and a finger-thick, foamy eggshell white head. Aroma of floral hops, banana, yeast, pepper, clove, sweet malts, pears, and apples. Flavor is also floral, fruity, yeasty, malty, sweet, and spicy. Really nice and complex. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Alcohol is completely masked. Very cool beer, and the best thing I’ve had yet from the state of Oklahoma.

750mL thanks to MrLo. Pours a hazy strawberry gold. Large, yellow head subsides quickly with no lace. Nose is plasticy phenols with soap and air freshener. Slightly more red fruits but still not very appetizing. Taste is oddly minty, watery, very strange. Detergent water, tannic red apple skins. Lots of weird going on here. Thin palate with heavy detergent. Not a fan.

750 from Ale Yeah in Decatur. Dark for a Biere de Garde. Slight farmhouse aroma, but taste is mostly malt and amber. Not really biere de garde (though not a style...but still) that I would recognize.

22. Clear dark ruddy amber with a surging, fizzy whitish head. Light sugary nose. Medium fizzy body. Light grass and sugary mid-palate. Hay and lemon finish.

BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a foamy, off-white head and a hazy golden orange body. Aroma of corn, buttered toast, honey, grain, light berries and a banana dessert covered with a bitter butterscotch. A touch of rotten apple as well. Taste is caramel, buttered toast and fruit compote. Lightly fizzy mouthfeel.

AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - JUL 15, 2010
hazy orange amber color/ off white head. Nice light pit fruit, melon, spicy aromas. light bodied with soft co2. Sharp, sweet n’ spicy flavor is again light pit fruits, apple, melon, caramel, mild oxidation. Nicely bittersweet finish.

12 ounce bottle. Thanks Justin. Pours a hazy brownish orange with a decent white head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and yeast. Taste is malt, caramel, fruit, yeast, and a bit of spice. Pretty good.

ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/1/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, some caramel, and floral and funky notes
Appearance: This one pours a hazy copperish color with a fizzy beige head
Flavor: Fairly sweet, caramel, apple, some spice, earth, lightly floral, very light funk
Palate: The body is medium with a fizzy/tingly mouthfeel and a decent drinkability
Overall Impression: This one is a lot of firsts, my first beer of June, my first Oklahoma rating, and (obviously) my first beer from Petes Place / Krebs Brewing Co. That is a nice collection of fairly meaningless firsts. I guess it makes sense for a first beer from Oklahoma to be a farmhouse style brew. (I kid! I kid!) Anyway, as for the beer, it was alright, fairly sweet, but ultimately pretty drinkable.
