Brewed with rice and finished with Sterling hops, this is another light, easy drinking beer. The rice lends a pleasant coconutty character, and overall the beer is crisp with mild herbal and citrus hop flavors.

Draft @ Brouwer’s; pale, straw gold with faint haze and thin white head lingering; lemony cream, stale grains, grassy hops; light husky character with crisp, fresh mouthfeel; smooth, almost creamy texture despite it’s very light flavor; sharp lemon peels and pale malt; light, simple and lovely; bone dry finish with husky malt and yeast; my fav of the small lineup of Bruery beers

Appearance: Pours a pastel cloudy yellow with a fluffy white head.

Aroma: Belgian yeast and minerals.

Taste: Lemon zest, hard minerals and Belgian yeast.

Mouthfeel: Very fizzy.

Overall: Refreshing. Possibly a Belgian taste on fizzy yellow swill. I can dig it.

I had this on tap at The Bruery. It’s very light, kind of like a lawnmower beer (sorry, Patrick & Tyler). It was OK, but nothing special.

Tap at the Second Anniversary. This was certainly interesting and quite light. Pours golden with a bright white ring. Nose is sweet and light, and inviting. Taste is nice and hoppy and bright with a taste of rice.

Sampled on tap at Max’s in Baltimore. Pours a bright, transparent yellow with a thin white head. Nose is floral, perfume, sweet. Flavor is sweet, grainy without being bready, almost smells like white flour, a little bland. Finish is bland with just a little lasting sweetness.

Good amount of sparkly carbonation here. The Belgian yeast takes over from there and pretty much obliterates any subtle flavors. The taste really lingers on the back of the tongue.

On tap at the Bruery’s 2nd Anniversary party. Light yellow color. Easy to drink. Nice apricot hoppy aroma. Low bitterness. Very good.

riversideAK (6265) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Fruity nose, nice tropical fruit, lemon, soft sweetness, light yeasty. Soft but extremelý nice aromas. Pours hazy yellow, nice lace, bright color. Dry flavors, grain bill - rice flavors, soft fruity sweetness - tropical juicy fruit. Really light but extremely flavorful and dry. Nice carbonation, very enjoyable.

Tap at the Bruery. Pours a hazy golden with a medium bubbly/creamy white head. Aroma of spicy and fruity hop notes, reminds me of a saison, bready malt. Flavor of bready malt, lots of citrusy and some spicy hop notes, very dry, moderate bitterness and again that saison feel.

AmEricanbrew (7080) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAY 13, 2010
Pale yellow color with fleeting head. Nice fruity, berry sweet aromas with rice pudding. Light bodied. Nice dry grainy rice cracker, lightly sweet berry flavors with pale malts, crisp, bitter finish. budweiser should taste like this.
