Thanks to tastybeer for sharing this to start off a low key tasting. It s not the most exciting beer. However as a light table beer that is easy going it is perfect. I will definitely continue to keep an eye on Pipeworks going forwards.

Aroma / Appearance - The fluffy white head and golden carbonated base reveal this to be a light session beer. The hints of brett in the lemon zest do the same.

Flavor / Palate - The solid kick of brett is carried by a malt wave. Warm applesauce is distracting for a second. The finish though more than makes up for its flaws. A (mostly) well rounded release I would love to see more breweries trying to do these light styles. With such low ABV and minimal ingredients it takes a skilled brewer indeed to pull it off.

On tap at Goldencrust and Tap. Pours a hazed yellow with a white head. Nose of grass, hay, herbs, and lemons. Earthy grassy herbal flavors. Light malt with some herbal bitterness. This might be better on a hot summer day but its not bad during this long Chicago winter.

Cool brew here. Thanks for the hookup, playa. Poured out a slightly hazy yellow with a fizzy white head. Aroma is big lemon and citrus, like sprite, with some yeast and bread. Lightly spicy. A bit soapy. Flavor is big citrus, lemon/lime, some light bread and Belgian yeast, spice. Good stuff.

22oz. Bottle
Appearance - Hazy yellow, creamy head
Aroma - Floral hops, orange peel, aloe
Taste - Grapefruit, flower, sprite, yeast

This reminded me of Orval quite a bit. The citrus zest really gave off a tropical quality with bitter Belgian influences. Thanks for sharing this one, OmegaX.

Aroma is citrus/lemon, yeast and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is citrus (a hint of pulp to it in the texture), slightly sweet malts and a tart finish. Very drinkable.

Draft at Jerrys. Pale yellow with modest white head / Stylish nose of malo, cream, lemon, pineapple, and a little funky earthiness? / Light body, crisp and dry, just a hint of sweetness, somewhat creamy, excellent balance with good bitter finish / Dry, elegant flavors of lemon, pineapple, passion fruit, straw, clove, and coriander / A great, summery (I wish) session beer.

Bottle from Zachary on BA - thanks! Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a bubbly froth of white foam. Aroms is clean wheat grain with citrus, slight tart, and a pleasant clove and spice aspect throught the finish. Taste has a nice bitterness up front with citrus, clove, some spices I cannot identify, and more bitterness into the finish. Clean, crisp mouthfeel. Very refreshing, flavorful beer.
