Sammy (11651) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 9, 2008
The aroma is not hoppy, its more on the spicey characteristic. The appearance is cloudy yellow, with dot bubbles. The taste is well balanced and rather chai, saison-like. Its bitter and more offset by spicey-yeastness than by the normal sweetness. Nicely done change of pace.

shrubber85 (11015) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 30, 2006
Bottle. Flowery apple/apricot aroma - slightly musty. Medium yellow with small head. Very unique hops flavor - initially just a dry sensation with the bitterness building to a crescendo then very slowly fading away. Slight pine flavor - never seems to get too bitter. Impressive - the hops characteristics of this beer are a work of art - incredibly well-balanced without going over the edge.

hopscotch (10927) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2006
Bottle... NTB Ernesto Festo 06... Mostly clear golden ale with a small, frothy, white head. Subtle nose with traces of herbal, spicy hops and gentle malt. Maybe a touch of diacetyl... toffee and butterscotch notes. Moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavors of peach, orange and grapefruit. Medium-bodied and silky with moderate carbonation. Lengthy, mildly bitter, grassy finish.

daknole (10925) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 28, 2009
Bottle at Mellow Mushroom. Golden pour, white head. Very resinous and citrusy aroma with a small bit of malt. Flavor is bitter as hell, lots of herbal/resin hops. Light malt bill. Crapload of hops...too much actually. Unbalanced for my tastes.
