Consumed at Tony's Darts Away in Burbank, Ca on March 14th, 2011.

Hazy, medium-golden beer. Head is virtually non-existent: a tiny ring of lacing is all this one had.

Soft, powdery yeast aroma mingles with honeysuckle note.

Flavor follows nose: slightly sweet with honey, powdery yeast and floral notes. Low bitterness, though it can be tasted at the finish.

Medium bodied but unfortunately, not dry.

Run-of-the-mill overall but properly executed.

Poured on-tap at Taco Asylum. Reviewed from notes.

A- No real head to speak of, ruby red and orangish color.

S- Fruity and light hops. Cherry and lemon notes present.

T- Hoppy and very, very fruity! Lemon and plum maybe? Those flavors take over. Tart and citrusy.

M- Very light bodied and lightly carbonated.

O- Very drinkable and fruity. Lovely lighter beer for such a strong one.

Poured from a growler I picked up from the brewery/tasting room yesterday to a Duvel chalice.
Fairly mirky amber/caramel color with a 2cm bubbly white head. Low retention and no lacing.

Belgian candy sugar, banana and caramel malt on the nose.

Light flavor. Not alot of depth. Slight sweetness up front similar to the banana flavors in a Hef. Also orange peel and maybe bitter mango. Transitions quickly to a slight sour finish. Flavor is pleasant and fairly balanced.

Light bodied and crisp mouth feel with good carbonation.

Overall it's good but nothing special. Could be a beer for someone trying to transition into liking sours. The right time to drink this beer is now in this hot CA summer.
