Draft awhile back at either RnH or Capone’s - cant remember but it was around the time I moved from Philly to nyc. Thank christ i only had a 4-5 ounce sample of this sucker because it was a terrible beer. Lightly hazy yellow body with some lacing. Aroma is pretty offensive, its not that this beer is boring in any way, but it’s actually offensive and disgusting. Maverick34 (3389) - New York, USA - MAY 14, 2011
Druaght from Ginger Manhattan. Poured a pale-ish goldy gold. Some light floral aromas, mild hops. Ok. crossovert (14128) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
It was very floral, I wasn’t that big of a fan. Almost tasted like Bruery’s orchard white but less potent. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 22, 2011
Bottle thanks to someone. Pours with a hazy milky yellow body with a large white head. Aromas are hoppy and grainy, grassy, and peppery. Spicy. Lively and peppery character. Dry, styrofoam, and fennel. Lively, dry. Not infected. GatheringBrews (47) - Derby, Vermont, USA - FEB 15, 2011
A: Very light, hazy yellow/straw color. Ample, puffy white head with loads of lacing.
S: The Belgian yeast gives it a characteristic nose but also a little too close to that skunky smell of Heineken.
T: Mild taste with a tiny bit of hops and just a hint of the fruit and spice you’d anticipate with Belgian yeast.
M: Very light and a touch thin with a dry finish.
D: A good beer, but not necessarily one I’d seek out; nor would I turn it down.

A: The pour is an incredibly pale straw color with some chill haze and a big white head.
S: Starts off with a sour aroma with some lemon, lemon zest, and a lot of yeast. There’s a bit of coriander and white pepper to it along with a touch of bread, and some raw (green) vegetables.
T: Coriander and pepper to start this one off along with a bit of a grassy hop flavor. Mildly bitter with some grain husk flavor with a bit of sourness and some more lemon zest. At least I don’t get my serving of vegetables, but the flavor is a bit watery.
M: The body is light to medium with a medium to high carbonation.
D: I guess the nice thing to say about this beer is that the 9.5% ABV is well hidden. Unfortunately, the flavors and aromas are not very good. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - DEC 4, 2010
Last sample of the Richmond Epic and Rare gathering. Pale yellow,OK head. Slight aroma of pale malt. Flavor is light malt, and faint pepper spiciness. Some bitterness on the finish. Subtle brew, but not bad. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - DEC 1, 2010
On tap at Capone’s last Saturday.
Pours a cloudy straw color with a slight white head and bits of lacing. Nose and taste are both somewhat bland and there really isn’t much going on, especially for what is often a complex--albeit light--style. Some grassy grain and minimal sweetness. Some light pear and green aple tastes and some citrusy, grassy hops. Mouthfeel is quite light with a few bitter notes. Light carbonation. Goes down pretty smoothly, but rarely not all that much there. It’s almost like a Belgian Mild.
Serving type: on-tap

22 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow body with a one inch fizzy white head that faded to a thin covering. The nose is rather light, a touch of bready malt, some light yeast, and just a little floral hops. The flavor is very very weak, with some suggestions of an infection that havent quite fully set in yet. Very thin maltiness with just some light floral hops. Just a minimal Belgian yeast note. Very light bodied, watery even, with prickly fizzy carbonation. This one just falls real short of enjoyable. Damico (3146) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 19, 2010
The light aroma of fruits, a bit of citrus and stale pears from the can. The pale ale pours very murky yellow, like pineapple juice. It tastes just like watered down orange juice unfortunately.
