Bottle... Cloudy golden ale with a huge, fluffy, white head. Great retention. The nose is soapy and bready and accompanied by notes of pale grist and white pepper. Medium to full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet and biscuity with fruity components of pair and apricot. Finishes bittersweet and minerally.

25.4 oz. FIRST BEER IN MY NEW HOUSE! Trade from Jamil. Funky spicy citrus flavor. Farmhouse with some funk! ozarkspops (368) - - DEC 30, 2012
Unfiltered golden pour. Paper white thick head with lots of lacing. Aroma of earthy spicy hops a mild fruity esters. Thick mouthfeel. Esters are focus in flavor. I get banana, apple, and some clove. Mild hop spice aroma comes through too. Fairly bitter finish.

750 ml bottle from a trade with a buddy down in Houston- thanks again, Bryan! Pours a somewhat cloudy gold color with a finger of densely frothy white head. Aroma of sweet malts, dough, floral notes, grass, pears, apricots, and candi sugar. Flavor is the same with more maltiness and booziness. Medium-bodied, with medium soft carbonation and a sweet, boozy mouthfeel and finish. Nice strong Belgian farmhouse ale. suprchunk (2994) - EffOff, Florida, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Honey, amber/gold colored pour. Big white head. Some lacing. Malty, dry yeast aromas. Some fruit - bananas. Slightly fruity flavor of dry yeast and malt. Nice.

Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy gold copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is musty herbal notes with some nutty nuances and esters. Taste is musty sweetness. A little bit estery as well. Overall, it’s pretty good. Thanks Errl! Drake (14332) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Bottle shared at the Richmond Industry Gathering. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, big spice notes and a mild fruit finish. The taste is caramel, herbal hops, nutty and spicy notes. Medium bodied. meerbier (1474) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2012
Sweetish and loads of hops. But it lacks some balance and complexity.
