draft at the brewery, a miss for me. Nothing bad about it, just over the top belgian yeast flavors unbalanced this one. Overwhelmed with balances and spices. Marheb (5788) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 12, 2016
(En fût au Bottlecraft Liberty Station): Des malts semi-sucrés, un généreux bouquet d’épices et un tranchant verdoyant parfaitement adéquat. La finale poivre frais est superbe. snoworsummer (5746) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear gold with a fizzy bubbly white head and decent lacing. Tastes sweet and fruity, the tropical fruit, bubblegum, and citrus hops, light yeast, caramel. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like citrus hops, caramel, bubblegum, and light yeast. JohnnyJ (5570) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 22, 2012
Clear medium yellow pour, with a fluffy white head. A very nice, light, dry Belgian ale. Bread, peppery, grain, yeast, herbal bitterness, dry banana, and grass. Very drinkable and dry, nice. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
ON tap. Clear golden with a fizzy white head. Nice yeasty, fruity, citrus and bread aroma and taste with a good refreshing crispness and a sweet malty finish.

Clear, light gold hue, with a frothy, thin, white head. The aroma has an ample earthy spiciness to it, that is not unlike grassy coriander. This is supported by a fruitiness that reminds me of pears and perhaps a touch of melon, as well as some grassy, pale cracker leaning, malt aromatics. The malt plays a clearly supporting role to the yeast / fermentation character.
Slightly sweet, with lots of fruity esters, the beer tastes of green apple, pear, and perhaps a touch of melon. There is a grassy, and herbal straw character here that is a compilation of the malt, some light hop notes and the fermentation character. This has a solid, though light, bitterness to it in the finish, and there is a slightly musty, earthy, spiciness as well as ample, clove like phenolic character that really lingers in the finish.
Not bad, but seems a bit on the “hot” side. It is not actually hot from alcohol, but does seem like the yeast strain might be a bit too characterful for the rest of this beer. Still, this is quite enjoyable.
