Easy drinking with hints of sweet corn, bread and caramel, this beer finishes with a blast of citrus hop and just enough crisp to balance the sweet. Its a toast to rolling surf, Baja hoodies, beach BBQs and the elusive green flash. Pairs with summers grilled foods like BBQ chicken, beef or fish. Also great with cinnamon or caramel desserts.

unclemike (3088) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 9, 2012
poured a rich amber color with a huge, frothy white head. Aroma of belgian yeast, spice, vanilla and a hint of fruitiness. Pretty straightforward and not overly tasty of a beer. Some caramel, yeast, earthy/herbal elements with a slightly tart flavor. Just ok

CanIHave4Beers (4181) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - JUL 1, 2012
The beer pours a hazy sunny yellow with a big fluffy white head.

The aroma is malty, bready, and a little bit salty. Some light toastiness serves the bouquet well.

The flavor is floral, almost soapy, but besides that its pretty true to the general character of the styles benchmark (Anchor Steam) with light notes of toasty caramel malt, lots of breadiness, some yeasty character and herbal bitterness.

Its a nice example of a beer style we just dont see a lot of in the midwest.

boydmarq (59) - Bloomington, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2012
On tap at Lazlos in West Omaha. Nice white head that dissipated slowly with nice lacing. Not much aroma. Taste was tart with grapefruit notes. Hoppy finish. Like many Empyrean brews, very drinkable but nothing to write home about.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 1, 2013 Bottle picked up at Beertopia Omaha, opened in Exira, Iowa. Hazy pinkish orange appearance with a pillowy white head. Dry, dull fruity, a bit yeasty, a bit spicy aroma. A bit tart, lightly fruity, crisp, light grape, earthy bitter hoppy flavor. Drinkable but a little strange. Update: tasted on tap at Empyrean on 9/29 and seemed to have a mild diacetyl note.
