A- Great hazy yellow golden color, almost like a German hefe.

S- A nice sweet fruit smell with a slight bit of bread smell as well. Very fragrant.

T- A slight sour taste that comes through, with a good golden raisin taste. There is a bread taste that was present in the smell, and is present in the taste. There is a slight soapy taste there as well.

M- Feels good on the mouth, the carbination is there in your mouth and can add some bite to the tongue.

D- Easy to drink. I will have to get some more.

Serving Temperature, 50 degrees farenheit. Serving Glassware, 12 ounce Tulip.

Inferno pours a strong white foamy head that is reddish and yellow with a clarity underneath a whipped egg white of foam along the glass.
A wafting of lemon and white grapes and a dash of spice and some vanilla aroma is present.
Dry pears and coriander along with some white spices dance across the tongue. Overall mouthfeel is medium.

Anyone got any cheesecake?

Cheers

A: Pours a nice light yet slightly murky yellow hue with a nice foamy head. No lace noted.

S: Nice sweet apple and pear aromas with a nice blast of yeast. Light spice as well. Solid.

T: Just like the aroma. Tons of ripe apple with a touch of skinned pear. Citrus and yeast come next and a touch of Belgian yeast can be detected in the finish.

M: Medium in body with a nice dry finish.

D: Put the 750 ml down with no problem.

I don't like saisons/farmhouse ales, by and large. This is probably as close as a beer can come to that style while still remaining enjoyable to me.

Pours a bright gold, with some orange overtones. Moderately large white foam head.

Smells like wheat, grass, citrus, and tons of yeast. Some spiciness (cloves? coriander?) in the nose. The taste pretty much delivers on that promise, except the bready/yeastiness is really, really pronounced. There's definitely some bananas, cloves, and lemony citrus in there. I could use either a bit more carbonation or a heavier mouthfeel: preferably both.

Very refreshing, dangerously drinkable. A bit underrated. Glad I bought a few, as this appears to be a one time deal.
