Big thanks to Brigadier for this trade. Effervescent gold pour with a large foamy white head. Aroma has great travel, citrus and dry champagne. Fruity flavor, peachy more than anything else, balanced by an overall dryness. Lemon, clove, and wild yeast creaminess play supporting roles. Worty wheat character comes through on the finish. Very active, lightly astringent palate. Excellent Orvallish golden ale, slightly less complex in its fruit character than the original, but very much a pleasure.

Backlog, Many bottles from Capones, pours a hazy yellow with large head. Notes of pineapple brett, florals, citrus hops, and other yeast. Some more complex plum and belgian fruit as it warms but its so crisp and nicely hoppy. Delicious.

bomber from secret santa? bottle says pale ale; web site says Belgian?? different brew for me and probably not my style, but well done and a different brew for me - big white heady foam - aroma of tart citrus, yeast, funk, taste was high carbonation, lemon, citrus, tart, dryness at end.

Pours a super clear golden with a small white head on top that leaves nice lacing. Nose is of madeira, brown sugar, light alcohol and feels really oxidized overall. Taste is pretty sweet and offers cardboard-y caramel and toffee. Medium body, medium carbonation. Not sure of the age on this bottle but it is almost clinically dead now...

Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Clear golden with a small bubbly white head leaving little lacing. Aroma is oxidized and carboard forward but it seems bad per se with rotten fruits, strong herbal notes, candi sugar and a disturbing sugary presence. Taste is sweet and oxidized with rotten fruits, herbal notes, weird spiciness and candi sugar. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Rotten fruits finish. Horrible.

Minderbinder (3469) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Bottle 750ml. Pours clear golden with medium white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of oxydation, sugar, cardboard. Taste is of oxydation, sugar, barley sugar, bitterness, fruits. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Overall: Over the hill, or this one was never adequate.

czar (9338) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 1, 2016
pours hazy bright gold with a small white cap offering minimal retention and lacing. rotten fruits, oxidation - old grass, white ice tea, spices, some sweetness - candi and honey; cardboard, yellow raisins, hint of citrus zest. moderate carbonation - could be brighter; light body - oily; semi-sweet spicy finish. disgusting.

Fridge lurker. Bomber. Batch E!049. Lovely aroma of Hay and pine. Opaque yellow body with an outrageous growing head. Fine sandy lacing left behind in patches. Body is biting sour and brett with a zesty zing of hop on the gentle wheat body. Decreasing body leads to enjoyable moderately long dry finish. A profound feeling of loss when I tried to fill the glass again and found the bottle to be empty.

SudsMcDuff (8468) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAY 25, 2015
Ithaca has its gems, this is one of them .. . quite a lot of brett yeast in this one to go with the light grain and straw. mild saaz on the end .. mouth is a bit on the spritzy side .. all and all, different and defining .. . . That’s a handsome banana, very appealing!!

djd07 (15342) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 12, 2015
Bottle thanks to Nathan. Pours a cloudy gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong funk, oak, fruity malt. Medium mouth, yeast, spice, oak, lingering dry finish. Very good.

jw0406 (1302) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 29, 2015
12 oz draft pours a hazy golden color with a nice whites head. Aromas of tart fruit, funk, earth. Light bodied and complex, very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
