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!

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2013 On tap at the brewpub. Belgian pale yeasty nose. Murky yellow body with a white head. Dirty belgiany flavors. Thin body. Dry. Kinda messy. Bitter finish. Like the other Belgian ones Iíve had here, I think the yeast just needs a little more time to clean up and turn into a simpler more palatable beer. 6/3/6/3/12

On tap at Belgian fest 2012. Hazed yellow. Light lemon crisp. Bitter tasty effervescent. 7/3/7/4/15

Tap sample. Poured hazy golden color with medium off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium to heavy earthy hop and yeast aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

Sample from beerfest. Poured a hazy yellow color with a tiny white head that didnít retain for very long. Aroma was some citrus hops, bubblegum, grass, and malts. Flavor was citrus, with some bread and yeast. Dry bitter in the finish. Good beer.

On tap the pub...A super murky neon straw, strangely reminds me of a glass of yeast. A couple fingers of white head, good lacing...Yeast and lots of it, yeast, and lemons. Not bad, needs to be a little sweeter...The taste starts off very yeasty, but brings about some nice sweet notes.. The finish is chalky and surprisingly alcoholic, which is a big detractor. Besides the finish this is pretty easy to drink. Iíd have it again.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clouded, golden-orange colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is banana with a good amount of citrus and Belgian yeast. Fairly lemony with a light wheat tartness as well. Flavor is similar. Banana and lemony citrus up front with a light wheat. Some yeast and a light tartness in the middle before the hops kick up towards the end and dry this out completely with a moderate, earthy and piney bitterness along with a slightly tart lemon, peppery yeast, and Belgian yeast. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and carbonation. Overall, a solid Belgian pale ale. Nice flavor and well hopped with a distinct Belgian yeast. Easy drinking and very flavorful for being only 4.5% ABV.

Little to no aroma, what is there is reminiscent of Belgian ales. Good, but somewhat bland.
