Notes from a tasting on 3/24/15

The look is nice. This hazy dark yellow beer somehow still has a little bit of clarity to it and lots of brightness, with a sizeable fluffy white head. It forms a pillow that diminishes slowly and leaves good lacing after settling to a layer on top of the beer.
I want to think more of this, but the only thing I can think is that it's too soft and, ultimately, somewhat indistinct. There's some pale fruits flesh but no real tang or sweetness. The yeast sort of gets lost in the transition. There's only a faint touch of sweetness before it gets peppery. It's not bad, I just can't find everything I want in here.
The body is light but edges toward medium, almost moving there while I drink it. It starts off too spritzy, but the spritz backs off to make it a little creamier. It's fairly dry and evens out with a good balance of crisp and smooth.

I had swayed from my usual Hoppy choices and it didn't agree.

Budweiser yellow color but cloudy. No head. Very subtle banana smell. Flavor starts all banana and evolves into nice pepper notes after a second. Interesting beer. Somehow, it keeps reminding me of fermented Mountain Dew! Probably the color and fruitiness.

Light golden yellow with slight cloudiness and moderate white head. Light yeasty Belgian ale flavor, mild sweetness and no bitterness. Solid drinkable saison, but make sure it's well chilled. Preferable IMO to the Lift Bridge Pale Ale.

Pale golden color. Smell is very mild, nothing stands out. Has the belgian wheat taste, which is the best part of it.
