3.83/5  rDev +3.2%
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.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an effervescent honey/gold color with a sliver of pearl colored head. Stays effervescent throughout, minimal lacing & no head retention

S: Pears & a little bit of perfumy hops,

T: Pears, woody hops, white grapes up front. More pears, white grapes, a little leafy hop & dryness as this warms. Finishes crisp, dry with winesap apples & pears

MF: Medium bodied, slight carbonation, pretty slick as this warms

Not bad, but after trying 3 from these guys, I'm not too thrilled either. Will try more if I can something more interesting from these guys. So far, I could take or leave these guys, but they are good introductions to the styles they are doing...

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

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 -6.2%
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: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

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.
