rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 8, 2010
As they point out, this is no ordinary golden ale. In small quantities (sample size glass) the beer appears slighty hazed yellow but in a pint glass it takes on a darker copper tone. Nose is primarily sweet, light banana as a wheat beer might have. Flavor is again sweet at first, wheat, medium body, malts, then a hint of Brett or similar sour flavor. Very complex and quite tasty. Grab one for yourself if you can as this will be very limited.

750 ml bottle shared with the group via one of my AZ friends (Dak, Dave, or Jason). Pours a hazy golden color with a large fluffy white head. The aroma has a combination of fruit, citrus, wood, funk, earthy, light bourbon and vanilla. The flavor has citrus, wood, tart fruit, funk, mildly acidic, light bourbon and vanilla with a splash of white grape juice. Dry Brett character. This was pretty tasty.
