PotjeBier (3838) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2012
(From notes) Tap, sample @ The Bruery, end of 2009. Aroma is hop, hop, hop, very resiny. Flavor is, however, rather mild bitter. Light body. Finishes mild bitter. Not too harsh, nice thirst quencher (no brett detected). Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2011
Crisp clearorange witha thick, creamy head. The nosE is floral yet crispy with plenty cereal to balance it out. Rosey oiliness in the mouth with super dry holiness you can’t evade. hopscotch (11445) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Draft… Clear golden ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that leaves weeping lacework behind. Resiny, musky hops are the aromatic stars of the show. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor tilts bitter, but not by much – earthy, musky, armpity. Finishes moderately bitter and dry with a kiss of toffee at the wee end. Very nice session brew. dchmela (3088) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2011
Draft at Redlight Redlight for Cigar City/Bruery event. Dark gold body with a thick off white head. Very hoppy floral and citrus aroma, really dominated by the hops. Smooth, dry and crisp malt, very clean with lots of citrus and pepper notes popping through. Little brett gets out, though, but overall a well made brew. juiceisloose (1603) - Windermere, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2011
Draft at Redlight Redlight for Cigar City/Bruery event. This one pours a mostly clear, dark golden colored body and topped by a small, bubbly head of off white foam that settles quickly while skinny lines of lace cling to the glass. The aroma is very hop forward showing notes of orange, grapefruit, peppery and floral hops with an underlying malt base of toasted bread and clean cereal grains. There is maybe just a touch of dryness from some yeast, but not much brett. The flavors follow suit and are again hop forward with the orange and peppery hops up front along with a touch of grass while the toasted bread and clean cereal malts add balance and some dryness. There is just a touch of yeast in there, but I don’t get much funk from the brett at all. Medium bodied with balanced carbonation that leads to a semi dry, clean, crisp finish. This is a tasty and well done belgian pale ale. Good stuff.

Solid beer. Good fresh American hops juxtaposed against mild funkiness from brett; grainy malt quality is crisp and clean. Really tasty, and easy to drink. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Tap at Provisions. Pours a translucent golden orange with a medium creamy white head. Aroma of fresh American hops. Floral and very citrusy. Some malty sweet notes. Flavor of the same. Great hoppy session beer! JohnnyJ (5571) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Draft at Bruery tasting. Clear amberish gold pour, with white head. Clean hops, citrus, and lightly maltly. Very easy to drink,. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 5, 2010
Growler at RBWG in March 2010. The pour yields a mostly clear, average golden body with a small, swirly, off-white head. Skinny, trace lines of lacing jut out from the body, clinging to the glass. Immediately, the dank nature of the heavy handed hops is apparent, showing notes of earthy grass, with brighter notes of orange peel and peppery flowers. Underlying malts are sweeter than expected based on the commercial description, showing notes of sweet toast and glazed cereal grain. Flavors seem dryer and more hop driven, again showing very dank and grassy, quite peppery in nature, with secondary notes of grapefruit and orange pith bitterness. Malts are again grainy, though less sweet, remaining largely neutral as they allow the hops to shine. Yeast character isn’t all that prominent. I certainly don’t get much brett out of it, if any at all. Light in body, with moderate carbonation and a semi-dry, crisp finish, the palate makes for easy sessioning. Good idea here, but the graininess is a little overbearing, and that is not resolved with the aggressive hopping. MeadMe (1694) - Fishhawk, Florida, USA - MAY 26, 2010
A: Pours a nice golden hue with amber tones showing through. The head is nice and tall.... white in color with some lace.
S: Aromas of bready malt, light floral hops and an out of place mild tartness.
T: Bready malt with hints of caramel sweetness. Grapefruit and mild grass. The brett is there but not in a big way. You pick up mild tones of tartness that make is seem as though it is unintentional.
M: Medium in body, good carbonation.
