This straw colored beer greets with an aroma of noble hops, pears and Belgian esters. The flavor follows nicely with a moderately spicy hop and Belgian yeast effect buoyed by a soft malt body. The finish is crisp and dry. We enjoy this beer with spicy foods, grilled steaks, grilled chicken and mandarin salad. Where you take it is only limited by your imagination.

Draft today @ White Birch and a few times in a bottle. This is my overall impression after many samples. Aroma was Belgian yeast, lemon and grassy hops. Flavor has mild Belgian yeast that is easy on your palate. Pale malts, grassy shops add some light bitterness, and just enough malt to give some sweetness into the finish. The batches have seemed to vary slightly. This batch has a bit more lemon citrus then I remember. The last bottle I sampled had a slightly bigger hop profile with more spiciness. One thing that has been constant from my notes is the lively, effervescence in the mouthfeel. Overall a light and easy to drink Belgian.

Bottle shared by drabmuh. Thanks Matt! Bottle 80 of 463 A: Very hazy yellow color with a thick, enormous white head that plasters the glass with sticky lacing. S: Herbal, floral, spices, tea, pears. T: The taste is not as bold as I would like. Its rather mild, actually, but with a fair amount of complexity about it. The hop profile is subdued, as are the fruit and spice aspects. Overall, I could use a bolder flavor. The flavors are inviting, I just wish they were bigger and/or more prominent. M: The body is somewhat thin with a very dry finish. D: A decent beer, but not one I would seek out. The authentic examples of this style still reign supreme. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-02-2010

Pours a hazy light orange with a 2 finger head that is very bubbly. Aroma has some light fruit and bug Belgian aromas. Taste follows with a nice crispness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle poured an amber color with a lot of head. Light malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

The beer is nice and crisp, with a major hop fragrance and fruityness, and hardly any bittering. That awesome Belgian yeast flavor is on it too, which I need to find me some of for a future brew batch. At 8.2%, its potent enough to pack some punch, but not so much that you cant enjoy a pint or two. If not for these spectacular qualities I would be happy to write this one off as another overpriced microbrew, but having sampled the contents, Im not surprised that it costs a mean $9. So if you dig on the Belgian flavor, and you have $9 to spend, I suggest you spring on this tasty treat.

Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 3/21/12, Bottled 12/11, Batch 11

Aroma: The nose is fairly subtle, it has some Belgian yeast-spice and some hints of fruit
Appearance: It pours a cloudy/murky orange color with a big foam of white head and foamy lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet with a lot of spice like the nose, and gets a little bitter on the finish
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has a ton of carbonation, it is tingly on the mouth, and finished dry
Overall Impression: First off, Im a big fan of the label, thanks for giving so much information about the beer right there on the label! There isnt really much to dis-like about this one, but it is a little one dimensional, and little too carbonated to make for a nice easy drinker. Its a solid, fairly easy to describe offering in my opinion. What you are getting here is a mostly a Belgian yeast/spice beer, with a little too much carbonation. Ill certainly finish one bottle, but I cant imagine rushing out for it again.

22 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is very mild overall and includes hay, a light fruitiness, yeast and a hint of candi sugar. The flavor is mild as well and may be influenced by the thin body and watery mouth feel. Hints of fruit, hay, grains and yeast. I dont think there is anything bad about this, just not much to work with.

Batch 9 Bottled July 2011 6.7%abv Ive tried this beer many times, many different batches, Im kind of surprised I hadnt rated this until now. Huge amount of carbonation makes pouring this a long arduous task. Ends up a slightly hazy light golden color with a monstrous white head that at time reminds me of meringue. Smells of lemon zest, green apples, honey and citrus with a fair amount of pepper, spice and yeasty esters. Light aromas of bready cereal grains find their way out of the glass as well. Taste is slightly sweet up front with hints of honey and sugary syrup. Spicy and yeasty flavors take over next to remind you this is a Belgian inspired brew. Finish is fairly dry but does leave a bit of sugary sweetness in the finish. Medium to thin body with a spirited level of carbonation and a lightly sweet sugary mouthfeel. Pretty damn tasty. Every batch of this beer seems to be just a wee bit different from the last, but I think this has been my favorite so far.
