2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted from a 12oz bottle in mid-2012 at a tasting. Pours clear, bright yellow with a thick white head that slowly recedes to thin, bubbly lace. The nose is creamy wheat with just a touch of spicy hops. The flavor is the same with a bit more spicy bitterness than I expected given the nose. The body is light with fizzy carbonation and a short creamy finish.
So as a bit of backstory, I've been very curious to try this brew ever since I first saw it featured in my edition of Brewopoly (one of my favorite Christmas presents ever), but the last place I expected to find it was at the bottom of an industrial fridge at my parent's bed & breakfast, apparently left behind from a wedding guest from Wisconsin. Fortunately I found these bottles in good shape and still fresh, but in the end this much-hyped beer didn't quite live up to its reputation. That being said, this does work as a nice light introduction to the farmhouse style, with distinctive floral yeastiness on the nose and in the flavor. Aroma was also reminiscent of a gose, with a slightly sour and grainy note. Appearance was a very slightly hazy straw gold color with fluffy foam, looked nice in a kolsch stange. Light bodied with soft carbonation, this has a mild and delicate flavor of grain, yeast, and a slight herbal-straw hoppy accent. Finishes clean and refreshing. Worth a try, and will meet expectations if just looking for a pleasant light ale. cobaink2 (799) - seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 15, 2017
12 oz bottle acquired through trade. Nice flavors of funk and farmhouse flavors with a bit of orange peel thrown in. Really balanced and drinkable. dnstone (3524) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Pours a slightly hazed golden color with white head. Light bodied moderately sweet.

This is an average American beer. Not outstanding in the least. I compared it to Pabst Blue Ribbon side by side. It is no better and in my opinion not quite as good. The main difference being a slightly slippery mouth feel as opposed to the crisp finish of Pabst. Only a slightly different balance. I actually preferred the Pabst.

A traditional German lager under Reinheitsgebot. Nice malt hop mix with that cold lager finish.

12 oz bottle from the variety pack, from Keyport Liquor in Superior, WI. Aroma is dough, chalky candy, corny, sweet malts, spicy. Pours hazy golden with a one finger white head that falls into a ring pretty quick. Taste is sweet and a bit spicy, flavors of Belgian yeast with bubblegum character, grain. Perfect mouthfeel. Not bad. I don’t see how it’s a cream ale, though. I’ve heard it’s a farmhouse ale, which is closer to what I’m tasting. Maybe it should be in the saison category? hershiser2 (3666) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle courtesy of Drake. Thanks much! I threw this in the freezer and perhaps left it there a tiny bit too long as it’s not exactly slushy, but... Anyway, pours golden with a slushy white head. Letting this warm a bit before I go any further. Aroma is slightly sweet grains, minor grass. Flavor is very similar. Sweet grass, grain, hint of fruit. ryrpat (387) - Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2017
Typical farmhouse ale. It's limited distribution gives it more hype than it deserves. Either way keeps me having one when I can get it
