Can from Val-U. Pours a clearish, glowing straw with a finger of soapy foam that lingers a bit. At first a nice Belgian yeast nose, but as it warms tons of motueka and Nelson....lychee, pineapple and passion fruit dominate. Dry with good yeast character on the palate. Dry finish with some peppery notes from the yeast. This slays. 2 months old and still the hops are very loud. A winner.

Nephilium (1782) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 28, 2017
Bright tropical fruit aroma, pours a slightly hazy straw with a white head. Some Belgian yeast esters are noticeable, with tropical fruit notes balanced by earthy hops. Very clean dry finish, with a mild bitter finish. A very nice easy drinking Belgian Pale.

Can. Poured into a snifter. 3.0 A: Mildly hazed golden yellow color. One finger of frothy off-white head. Retention is a touch below average and just the slightest ring of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Interesting nose on this. Its a strange mix of mango, lemon, and a vinous component. Quite sugary. Just a touch of peppery spice. 3.5 T: Primarily sugary and woody. The mango/lemon combo thing from the nose is back. Again just a touch of pepper. 3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Slightly spritzy and super smooth. 3.25 D: Its a decent brew, but doesnt stand out too well. ★ 623 characters DavoleBomb, Jul 26, 2015

Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear yellow with a white head of foam. Pretty good retention as well. The aroma has lemony notes and cotton candy and herbal aspects. The tadte is predominantly sweet and mildly bitter. Some esthers. Medium carbonation and light to medium body.

Panzuriel (2125) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - SEP 3, 2015
12 oz can from Westerville Meijer. Rhinegeist Fiction is a lighter yellow beer with a firm white head. Nose is a bit of melon, citrus and Belgian esters. Taste is mildly melon and a touch of lemon. Good lightly roasted malt cereal thing going on. Body a bit thicker than expected. a nice and different Belgian.

Pours very light pale gold with white head. Light body. I really like this style. Initial citrus sweet ness with other fruit sweetness. A good amount of yeast and malt flavor. Slight bitterness to finish with more sweetness.
