Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is fruity and spicy with a touch of honey. Flavor shows pale malt, citrus, and an underlying vegetal note that I cannot quite put my finger on. Overall body is dry, somewhat astringent, with light to moderate bitterness. can8ianben (1601) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2010
Wow! I love the creativity at the Bruery - a crazy citrus hop aroma nestled on top of a vibrant spicy Belgian body. I’d compare this to an amped up version of Stone’s Cali-Belgique. Really interesting and very delicious. RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Pours gold to burnt orange with a large, fluffy and persistant white head. Aroma of champagne, sourdough bread, yams (but less sweet), grass, leaves, and maybe a hint of something like basil. The yeast presence is great here. Flavor of doughy malt, grass, earth, pepper, champagne, dry sourdough bread, tangy spice and grain. Finishes with lot of pepper, earth, grass, and a significant yeasty punch. Spicy in ways that reminds of Unibroue, or other beers that showcase a champagne/Belgian yeast combo. Full bodied but not heavy and a well carbonated creamy texture. Very nice! csbosox (1229) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 24, 2010
750ml bottle, split with my dad in Key Largo, FL. Drinking out of a plastic hotel water glass, there was no coffee pot or I could have gone Clark VV on it. Murky orange and gold with a fluffy white head and some sinking particulate matter that looks to be from hop pellets. Aroma is spicy and floral, reminds me a lot of the Mt Hood hops I have been using. There is also some candi sugar and general fruitiness. Soft mouthfeel with a somewhat assertive bitterness at the finish. Citrus, spicy phenols, light malt and floral flavors. It is certainly a pleasant enough beer. Reminds me a lot of a homebrewed beer I had at theisti’s recent party. WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours a very hazy pale yellow color with a thick eggwhite foam head that quickly dissipates. Malts are slightly sweet and mild, just a hint of sugar and ripe fruits. Quickly dries itself out on the back end, finishing with crisp carbonation and a slight booze kick on the back of the throat that reminds me of champagne. Dry and crisp, a nice drinking beer.

Pours a clear golden with modest fine-bubbled white head. Aromas of tangerine, sweet spice, candy sugar, and a touch of pine. Medium sweet juicy citrus (grapefruit and tangerine) with a dry spicy, floral, resinous finish and medium bitterness. Exquisitely balanced. Medium bodied with prickly lively carbonation. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 14, 2010
Sampled on tap at The Bruery Provision. The appearance is a golden hue. The flavors and aromas are Belgium forward with a definite hop presence but the Belgium first just doesn’t do it for me. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2010
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2010 Tap. Poured a hazy golden color with a small creamy white head. Aroma was hoppy, notes of spice, cloves. Flavor was citrus hops, spices, caramel, touch of pine. Alcohol well hidden for 8.5% hellbilly (3306) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2010

9/30/10 on cask at papago
hazy maple yellow with an off white head... it smells of belgian-y yeast, spice, tart white grape juice, spice, citrusy hops, florals and pale malt.
the flavor is largely the same along with some carrot-like vegetal earthiness.
it has a crisp medium body even with the cask texture. 7/4/7/3/15/3.6
On tap at Bruery Provisions. Pours yellow with some white head. Smells of pine and some melon.
