Cloudy golden pour with a white head that quickly fades down to a thin ring. Aroma: Dusty, yeast, lemon, and faint spice. Taste: overall pretty yeasty. Lemon zest and spice come through in the background. Palate: Prickly carbonation that finishes dry. Overall: Pretty refreshing and enjoyable. Nice for these hot Texas days.

Pale straw color with a wheat beer like haze, soapy head. Smell is aggressive and hence the name very barn yard like. Fairly clean taste at first, leads to a somewhat boozy taste and a sharp bite from the yeast. Kind of low in carbination, looks like the head got most of it, but it actually makes it pretty easy to drink and sessionable. I look at it more as a great session beer then a true belgian and the price point surely makes it a nice go to brew.

12 oz. can poured into "craft beer" glass (stick)

L: cool murky light orange; not 100% opaque but not clear; OK head of about 1/2 inch, very little lacing. the head isn't fantastic, but the color is.

S: tripel/hefeweizen like to me ... lots of sweeter/sour citrus, banana. smells a bit like wine.

T: very hefeweizen, plenty of sweetness but not overly so, lots of banana

F: fantastic body, carbonation

O: for a beer that isn't among my favorite styles, this one tasted awfully good during a recent fishing trip. and if you're in the mood for a tripel but want to save money, honestly, you could do worse than a couple cans of Barn Burner.
