Draft at Falling Rock. A bit of pineapple on the nose. Pours orange tinged with an inch of white foam. A bit dry on the tongue. Seems more like an aborted attempt at a saison. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - SEP 15, 2011
22oz bottle. Golden pour, white head of big bubbles. Aroma of Belgian Ale, large amount of golden raisins, dandelion, aged grassy hops. Flavor is tart, pale malt, straw, a touch of acidity. Overly active carbonation. Gives me a bit of acid reflux drinking this, lots of burping, slow to finish. Flavor is as authentic to any Belgian Ale I’ve had, fresh or aged.

22oz bottle (bottled on 06-25-09) poured into tulip glass. Appearance: Golden yellow in color with lively carbonation. Frothy white head with good lacing. Aroma: Grassy hops, pine, cereal, grapefruit, orange, lemon, hay, and bananas. Taste: Sweet citrus fruits at first then hoppiness comes forward. Hop spiciness. Fizzy. Palate: Light bodied. Dry. Smooth finish but bitter. A good Belgian style ale...I previously had this before and think I remember a different taste, could be from the age, but not sure. Have more in supply, interesting to see if there will be change next time I crack a bottle. arminjewell (9728) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Bottle, pours hazy dark yellow with slightly off white head, aroma has notes of flowers (big surprise), some fruity notes including some tropical fruit, some slight honey, spices, and some biscuity bread. Taste is a bit thin, but is complex with notes of flowers and honey, mixing with fruit and bread, finishing slightly sweet and fairly dry. Nice. barncatmatt (2355) - Cambridge, Ontario, CANADA - APR 15, 2011
bomber from a trade with ericandersnavy. bottled 06 25 09. pours slightly hazed yellow with very nice lacing. dry simple belgian pale ale. was probably better when fresh but its still quite enjoyable. could use some funky bret influence IMO.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours a hazy golden color with a bit of a white head. The nose brings some citrus and tropical fruits with light grain alongside some Brett and light, earthy funk. The taste is mild funk with some fruits and pale malt. Slightly dry feel with some funk. Drinks nice and light; would be interesting to see what the funk turns this into.

Bottle @ home. Mostly hazy yellow-orange appearance with a white head. Floral hoppy, slightly sour, light Belgian ale nose. Fairly floral hoppy taste with a yeasty, slightly sour, Belgian golden ale flavor. Slightly hoppy, lightly fruity Belgian ale finish. beernbourbon (1604) - Glendale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle. Pour is light cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is lemon, chamomile, faint hop, light spice, and hay. Flavor is very true to nose with a lightly floral quality and a crisp spicy finish. Not bad. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 23, 2011
On tap at Brouwer’s. Pours a light honey amber, with a foamy white head. Nose is interesting - herbs and bubblegum. Wheat, cardamom and a bit of rosemary countered with apricot candy. Flavor follows suit, adding floral notes (that could just be my head) with a full but incredibly delicate palate. Dry finish, without being too sharp - it just sort of disappears. A bit of citrus, lots of herbs/floral notes. It’s almost a bit too delicate for my taste, but it’s a very pleasant brew. ddemmingjr (890) - Chagrin Falls, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2011
pours hazy straw, minimal white head. subtle carbonation. Pineapple, floral hops, funky yeast, lemon zest on the nose. metallic, wheat clove on flavors. dry finish. unique but refreshing.
