Bottle at the Funky 8, Brooklyn, NYC. Plenty of pale malts, dashes of citrus, hay and cereal. Nothing really wrong with this one, it’s just pretty simple and not especially exciting. Pleasant to drink.
12oz bottle pours with a nearly clear gold body that supports a brief off white head. The aroma offers up banana, cloves and bubble gum and yeast where a slight honey sweetened malty wheat note flutters in the breeze off in the distance. The taste starts both prickly with carbonation and soft with sweetness. I get apples, cloves, honey and yeast flowing into a modest degree of sweet malty wheat. Decent.

Sample at the taproom. Clear golden color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lace. Aroma of herbal yeast, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy yeast, doughy malt and subtle cloves. The finish is herbal and spicy with a touch of fruit left in the aftertaste. Decent overall. slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - MAY 1, 2015
like a hefe belgian hybrid with it’s bubble gum and clove, with very light citric flavor and sweet/tartness. not bad, especially in the hot months. maley1 (1301) - Calgary, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014

22oz. Bomber, pale straw pour. Apple, White Wine aromas. Good hot weather beer but, the flavors take a back seat, only the tartness stands out. Has good carbonation.

Pint on tap. Lighter than I expected, clear, no lacing, and minimal bubbly head that burns off quickly. Average citrusy aroma, nothing that good. Somewhat weak tasting, almost watered down. Very soft palate, to a fault. Tries to be complex, but it’s not great. Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUL 4, 2014
On tap in Garden Grove, CA. Taste is lemon peel, hay, earth, bubble gum, clove and spices. SlimHabib (484) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with large white head but fades quickly. Lots of different aromas, bread, banana, lemon, bubblegum, apple, and light spices. Light body. Strong lemon taste. Lasting sour aftertaste. Some good qualities, but not a great finish. daknole (11402) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 30, 2014
Gold pour, white head. Quite tasty. Spice, yeast, light grains, creamy body. Nice summer brew. superspak (6004) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; with crisp malt/yeast/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Belgian pale ale. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
