Pours to a thin looking very carbonated golden body with a creamy dense white head. The aroma is orange oil, lemons, pale malts, yeasty. The flavor is very cereal-like. Toffee, lemon rind, orange oil, coriander. The palate is refreshing and sweet. Moderate mouthfeel. Brigadier (3780) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2006

A nice treat from a local brewer who does a good job on almost all their beers. This is the best one I’ve had yet and was well worth picking up a six pack
Aroma / Appearance - The first thing to hit my nose was a lemon-lime sensation that made me think someone had soaked orange peels in lemon juice. Along with that, there was a slight hoppiness infused with hay notes. The cloudy body was the color of mandarin oranges and had no trace of a head.
Flavor / Palate - At first there is a taste of orange peels, hay and grapefruit that fills the entire mouth. A creamy mouthfeel of peaches blends with citrus flavors on subsequent sips. The finish is sweet with hints of honey playing out in the back of the throat. This would be a great beer to pair with some chocolate and try on an early summer day.
Enjoyed out of the bottle in Madison, WI. The label says Belgian Ale but this tasted like a very sweet wheat ale, in my humble opinion. It smells rich and malty, with no roasted (burnt) taste at all. The taste was also quite sweet and smooth. I tasted bananas distinctly. A very easy ale to quaff, this one would be good as an after-dinner beer. LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2006

Bottled, pours a hazy golden yellow with a tiny white head. Aroma of orange rind, and yeasty barnyard funk. Flavor is tart mustiness, following into a bready malt finish. Medium bodied, light carbonation. Good summer beer, good saison. aracauna (3707) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2006
This pours a hazy yellow. The aroma is a heavily spicy orange. Really good stuff. It probably beats out the 3F Rabbid Rabbit I had in the same tasting. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Cloudy light yellow body with a thin white head. The aroam si funky and earthy with notes ofhay and dried apple chips. There is also a little hint of fresh manure, but it’s a good thing. Interesting, almost barnyard aroma. The taste is slightly sour with some old cherry juice. There is also some lemons zest and a little bit of grass. Nice and refreshing. I really enjoy this one.

Bottle. Poured a clear medium golden with a short cap of speckled white head. Lemon-peppery spices, coriander, light fruits, and bready malt in the very pleasant aroma. Flavor picked up faint traces of cellar.. wheaty fruits at the core.. bready malt.. and increasing corinader as it warmed. Medium carbonation and it flowed well across the palate. Finish was high on the lemon and coriander with a bready backing. Very, very tasty and remarkably drinkable. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - AUG 15, 2005
From a growler purchased at Firm Worm in Arena WI. Pours nearly opaque pale yellow, substantial head. Aroma of citrus and coriander. Flavor of lemon peel and coriander, lots of coriander, spicy and pleasantly citrusy. A beer so solid you almost need to chew it but still thirst-quaffingly easy to drink. Struck me more as a substantial Belgian wit with an extra coriander kick than a farmhouse ale. Whatever you call it, one of the best Belgian-style beers made in the Midwest.
