Draft at Mudville 9 in lower manhattan. Pours a golden yellow color with hints of hops and yeast, bread and grain. Lemon booze flavor follows but very well balanced robinvboyer (4737) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 7, 2014
Wow, this is an out of left field belgian ale. Clear copper pour, with a medium white head. Sweey malty aromas, lots of bready sweet malts, with some distinct tropical fruit aromas, with some piney, citrus zesty hops. Very lively carb, and viscous mouth feel. Finish is quite sweet, notes of candi sugar, and yeast, bready malts. The rose hips are kinda there in the finish, but other than that, i cant find them. Medium bitterness, with a solid hoppy, pine resin after taste. A cross between a belgian ale and a double ipa. kdm1984 (814) - Missouri, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Cloudy yellow-to-orange appearance. Decent head; uneven lacing. Smells of booze and citrus at first, almost like a double IPA, but the yeast hits the longer it sits in the glass. Taste: big bitter hops, big booze, yeast. Like a cross between an IPA and a Belgian. Not surprised given it’s Southern Tier. Packs a wallop, but not much complexity going on here, I must say. Drinkable, but not a favorite. jsmerig (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Pours a hazy golden yellow. Bubbly. Aroma is lightly malt and floral. Taste is sweet with a biting bitterness that mixed with the sparkling carbonation.

(trade w/OLking) - White foamy head. Body is gold to light peach. Crystal clear. Aroma of apricot. Flavor kind of reminds me of a thermometer that’s been freshly cleaned with rubbing alcohol. Aftertaste like white wine grapes which has started to raisin. I’ve tried it. I won’t likely be trying it again unless it’s thrown in as an extra in a trade.

I love this beer! Floral aroma, great appearance, citrusy taste, and a slight alcohol burn. What more could you ask for on a hot summer day!? blankboy (7786) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a hazy bubbly copper-gold with a large semi-lasting foamy white head and some lacing. Aroma is sweet, fruity, floral and lightly hoppy along with some yeast and yes, rose hips. Nice flavour is lightly sugary sweet and yeasty along with some honey, light hops, fruit and a long tea-like bitter finish. Some alcohol but for the most part well hidden. Medium bodied. Pretty good beer. Stuu666 (14563) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 27, 2014
Keg at the Vintage. Pours light hazy amber, sweet toffee, fruity, flowery, light. daje (4436) - NORWAY - AUG 26, 2014
Bottle. Cloudy yellow body with a rather small white head. Aroma of spicy belgian yeast, apples, oranges and flowers. Taste is bittersweet, fruity hops, light peppery, herbs. Thick sweet fruity finish with bread and banana. Nice hoppy belgian.
