COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our ode to Oscar Neebe, yeast saleman, friend of the brewer and one of the three to survive the trial of the "Haymarket Eight". A straw colored Belgian ale dry-hopped with Amarillo hops. A great session ale!

On tap @ the brewpub. Very hazy light yellow. Incredible aroma! Sammy says "It smells like a summer day on an island!" Guava, white grapefruit, summer flowers, wheat malts. Light, crisp, and dry, but bursting with flavour. This, to me, is a perfect summer session ale. Outstanding!

arminjewell (9576) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of grass, herbal, and floral hops, slight orange, white fruit into a bit of biscuit, sweet vanilla. Taste was a mix of grass, herbs, some earth into a bit of floral, orange hops, slight white fruit, finishing with some spice, slightly bitter but pretty sweet.

TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Peteís first beers. Pours a murky hazed bright golden hue, a big offwhite head laces very well. Dies to a film, aromas are wheat bread dough and touches of apple, banana, touches of spice, lemon, and light hops. Yeast spice and bigger bread dough. Initial is lighter bodied, pear and apple, decent citrusy hops. Lingering bubblegum, bread, decent bitterness. Mellow lingering sweetness, esters, light grassy hops. Mellow lingering esters really kinda sum it up with a touch of spice. This beer seems like it could have used some more time in the fermenters

vyvvy (6354) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 24, 2012
Sampled at the Midwest Belgian Beer Fest 2012 - pours hazy golden with a small white head. The aroma has tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, fairly toasty malt and fruity Belgian yeast. It has a medium / full body with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts with the aroma hops, bready malt and Belgian earthiness. The finish adds some spiciness and dough. Nice Belgian pale.

kaser (6148) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Poured from draft at Haymarket Brewey in Chicago. Orange and clear. Sweet lemon and grass aroma. Fruit and citrus taste. Slight hops. Very good for a Belgium which I usually don't like

nuplastikk (6144) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2014
Tap at Haymarket. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Thin, steady oily white head. A really pleasant, well executed beer. Big hop and yeast tones, but a subdued malt backbone creates a smooth nice balance. Melon hop tones, maybe some amarillo. Nails it, well done.

burg326 (5463) - Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2012
On draft at brewub poured a murky light yellow color, aromas of grass, caramel, light fruit and some toast. Flavors are the same with some nuts. Ok beer overall.

Frank (4167) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 2, 2016
This is a pretty mild and nice hoppy Belgian. Itís cloudy blond with a creamy head. Yeast character is nice and spicy and works well with the fruity hops. Itís dry and fairly full bodied with a pleasant smack of hops in the finish. This is one you can really slug down. I like it.

theisti (4088) - Kansas, USA - MAR 2, 2015
12 oz draft pour at the brewpub in Chicago, Illinois. The pour is a slight haze golden with a smallish white head. The aroma is bright fruit hop along with fresh floral Belgian yeast. The taste is a nice blend of the fresh clean fruit hop, light cracker malt and the floral Belgian yeast spice. The palate is light bodied with active carbonation and a dry finish with Belgian yeast that lingers nicely. Nice one.
