Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - NOV 4, 2012
Had on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign, served in a shaker pint. A: Pours a dark amber color with a foamy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film leaving sticky sheets of lace behind. S: Light yeasty components with a touch of chalk. Some fruity esters and a little grassy hops as well. Some oaty pale malts on the nose as well. T: Pretty much like the nose with more of a dry yeast flavor and less of the malts from the nose. Same fruity esters and light grassy hops. M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Dry finish. O: This was OK. It was anything spectacular and pretty straight forward. Serving type: on-tap

12 oz bottle labelled as Grains of Truth. Pours a clear copper color with a two finger-thick off-white cap of foam. Aroma is malty and a little sour. Medium body with lots of carbonation on the tongue, the flavor is a combination of malt, wheat and a little spice from the rye. A little tartness on the finish. Great beer!

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Copper color with a huge, fluffy, ecru colored head. Sweet wheat, rye and buckwheat honey scents. Some earthy grains in the background add complexity. Light sweet start. Malty flavors abound, with spicy rye, oats and wheat. Floral to herbal hops. A touch of funk/yeast. A brew to ponder over. 5/12

Leather and polish scents of alcohol sour and yeasty. Pours a cloudy brown orange with a massive rocky off-white head. Tons of lacing. Nice biting sour tastes of rye and oats with some sweetness and a balanced long sweet and sour finish. Oily mouthfeel with sparkling carbonation. Very nice ale.

3.1
PanMarek (447) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Pours a hazy, caramel brown with thick, persistent beige foam. Spicy nose with some bread, floral hops, maybe some citrus and banana. The taste is also complex with some spice (clove) and lemon. Medium body active fizz and a surprisingly crisp finish. The hops and malt balance well, with the bitter hops coming out slightly ahead, thanks to the spice.
