3.71/5 rDev +0.3%
Bottle > Pint Glass
A - Hazy almost neon yellow with a finger of foamy white head, thick lacing.
S - Fresh grass, grains, lemon peel, cracker malt
T - Nice lemon flavor, floral and grassy as well, finishes clean with the malt coming through.
M - Clean and light. Good carbonation.
O - Good and highly drinkable beer. Not mind-blowing but certainly refreshing.

3.54/5 rDev -4.3%
12oz bottle form the 4-Pack
Notes form 04/25/2014 – FW Nonic style glass
A: Goldenrod body with a yeasty haze. Has some orange tones to it when held up to the light. Thin layer of paper white foam settles out to a thin rim leaving some light drapes of lace sticking to the glass.
S: Smells of sourdough bread, grains, and some musky Belgian yeast traits. I get coriander, lemon peel, and white wine grape, with a touch of earthy minerals. Okay smell. Fairly yeasty to me and more so a Belgian pale.
T: Taste is light and dry with lots of grassy earth notes. The Belgian yeast presents fairly strong in the flavor as well with coriander, peppercorn, and hints of clove. Subtle bits of white grape, lemon, and grapefruit manifest with a moderate to upper level of drying bitterness. Bread is the sourdough kind with a soft honey sweetness. The phenols give a touch of sharpness enhancing some alcohol notes there. This is an okay brew but it’s not really gelling for me.
M: Moderate filling body with a even strength of carbonation giving a nice spritz. Decent tug of bitterness washes up to a drying finish. Fairly crisp and clean in the end.
D: Make no mistake, this is a BPA utilizing the house Belgian Yeast strain. Not bad but doesn’t quite work for me with the Nelson hops and Belgo style combo. One of those things that looked great on paper I guess. I think the yeast would need to be dialed back a bit and hops kicked up a notch but what do I know. My wife is a fan if that is an inclination to anything but I couldn’t give a strong recommendation for this one.
