On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is light and spicy with cinnamon, clove, coriander and pepper. Nice yeast esters. The flavor is dry and spicy with more cinnamon, coriander with a touch of pepper and clove. Pale malt and light pear esters in the background. A good Belgian. oRos (1675) - sacramento, California, USA - JUN 1, 2015

On tap at Barrels And Bottles. Light hazy gold appearance with a lacy white head. The nose is rustic yeast, earthy and lightly floral with notes of toasted grain. Similar flavor. Medium body with ample carbonation. I like this. NachlamSie (3465) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2015
7 oz. pour at First Draft. This is a light yellow with active carbonation and a white head. Seems like a pretty straight forward Belgian ale. Esters are nice, giving it a floral, spicy, and papery aroma. The body is medium with a dry finish. Pleasant fruity yeast comes through in the flavor with a relatively assertive hop presence. The malt bill seems pretty simple, adding some bready sweetness. iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 SS Growler from the brewery. Spicy white pepper aroma with some flowery herbal hops, light Belgian banana esters behind with some cracker malt. Flavor follows suit, some nice hops again with the spicy white pepper pretty prominent. There is some of the fruity yeast, but not too much. Reminds me a bit of Taras Boulba, which I’m told is what the brewers were shooting for, so good on them. Scant sweetness, this finishes nice and dry with earthy bitterness peaking at a 3-4. Pretty tasty.
Old rating follows. Tap at Newport Pizza in OB. Clear light yellow gold with a small white head, down to a tattered film. Very dry, Belgian yeasty. Some dry herbal hops. Dry finish, bitterness at 3. Light body mod carb. Nice dry light belgian pale. Will update later.

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. thome50 (1294) - Morro Bay via Orange County, California, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Pours from the tap a yellow to light orange with white head. Aroma is more bread and belgian yeast with a little more sweetness. Taste is dry and crisp, refreshing. Banana again and some light hops make this one really easy to drink. Overall, my favorite of their belgian line today. Jesterdeal (1985) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2012
Aroma of champagne, slight banana pudding and sourdough. Pours light blonde with film. Tastes of white grape and tart yeast. Bright mouthfeel makes this a nice drink. Dogbrick (12912) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Sample at the tasting room. The beer is a clear pale yellow-gold color with a medium white head that dissipates gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, yeast and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy yeast and malt. The finish is hoppy with a clove and yeast aftertaste. Decent overall. bergstaden (2922) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2013
