Poured into a tulip glass. Pours slightly hazy golden with a thick white head and some visible bubbles rising in the beer. The aroma is grainy and sweet. There's some mild citrus in the smell and a faint hint of spice. The flavor is sweet and bready and there's some mild back end hop bitterness. There's some of that citrus as well as some banana and very little spiciness. The body is medium with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry and the beer drinks in a very refreshing manner. This is an excellent beer.

Poured from 12 oz into nonic pt glass
Best by: 05/08/14

A - poured orange-yellow, slightly cloudy. Not much head but substantial lace down glass
S - earthy breadiness but somewhat tame maltiness. A little hint of citrus (maybe even strawberries), yeasty.
T - really get a wheaty, straw-like presence with the citrus (mostly orange zest) coming through. Not much hoppiness except for a slight bitterness as it rolls down your throat.
M - excellent light-bodied mouthfeel. It almost "rushes" down your palate.
O - fairly solid beer for what it is. As someone who has (and still) participated in the real "courir de mardi gras", this would be a very solid option on a hayride or horseback. While the taste lacks any "wow factor", this beer is super easy to drink and would go great for a day of reveling the countryside and chasing chickens. Pleasant surprise!

3.48/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Clear, dark golden amber. Decent head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing thoughout glass. Little carbonation.

S: wheat-y. small bitterness detected. light citrus. Lots of nothing... just a bit of any light beer you have ever tasted.

T: Subtle. good crisp beginning. lots of wheat taste. back end leaves bubbles... light fruit.

M: waxy at times. Overall, the mouthfeel is full bodied and wonderful from sip to finish.

O: I hope they keep up this Mardi-gras type. Having been to mardi gras, this would be a good change of pace from the cheep beer everyone chugs or the heavy alcoholic drinks everyone is throwing back.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Poured into a plastic cup before the Iris parade on St. Charles St.

A: Hazy brownish/gold with a frothy one finger head that almost stayed for the parade. Lots of lacing and bubbles.

S: Picking up maple syrup, leather and some orangy citrus.

T: Really surprised in a good way! A hearty, robust taste with smokey malts, light citrus and a sweet attitude. Bready with some clove action. A slight hoppy finish.

M: Medium to heavy with chewy carbonation.

O: Glad I got more than one. This is a unique taste that I can get used to.
Let's ride out that Mardi Gras, cher.

Poured with overwhelming carbonation. Actually took two pours to get the 12 oz bottle into a 16 oz glass. Clean white and fluffy head. Looks cloudy and light yellow. In fact, at first glance it looks like a hefe. Citrus sweetness and some grassiness in the aroma. The flavor is lead by sweet and slightly toasted malt, herbs, touch of grassy biterness from the hops. Banana in the finish, too.

Interesting flavors and really smooth. Worth a shot.

12oz bottle poured into a Cigar City snifter. Thanks to Shane (injuredreserved) for a chance to try some local flavor.

A: The beer pours a clear golden hue with very minimal head that left a touch of spotty lacing throughout the session.

S: The beer is malt forward with a biscuity bready nose. A small hint of spice (clove?) lingers at the tale end. No hop presence to speak of.

T: Again malt forward but this time i pick up a bit of hop on the back end for a bittering finish. I also picked up a touch of metallic oxidation on the back end of the taste.

M: The carbonation is the highlight of this beer. Just the right amount of fizz to carry the flavors. The mouthfeel is a little thin but still quite enjoyable.

O: Overall this is a nice beer and one that makes me jones pretty hard for some jambalaya in NOLA. They say that atmosphere can heighten the senses and I would be willing to bet this beer would taste even better down in the Big Easy than it does in my dreary rainy neck of the woods (PNW)
