Poured from a bottle into a Sam Adams tasting room glass.

A:Beautiful golden color, just a touch of head, making a ring around the glass, doesn't even cover the beer.

S:The strongest note I detected was honey, some hops and citrus are perceived as well.

T:Nice and balanced, no particular flavor shines through. More mouth feel on this beer than taste. Quite light and pleasant taste for what is there.

M: Nice body to this beer, feels thicker in the mouth than it looks. Strong carbonation on the tongue with a nice finish.

O: Nice everyday drinking beer, especially for a hot day. Is a simple, well done white beligan style beer.

Served in a Sam Adams signature pint.

Appearance: Light hazy gold, (white) head is not as built as some would like rising to maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Strong [lemon] citrus scent with a hard yeast feel. Weird in a way that it might smell spoiled to others but still happy.

Taste: Lemon oh yes lemon with a yeast feel that really can't leave you unhappy. Honestly I really like it, it is creamy a little sweet and of course bitter. Well made.

Mouth Sharp texture, that tingles the palates. Medium carbonation feel;s just right.

Overall: People have bashed this beer but it lives to above of it's potential. It is tasty and with a crisp after-taste it is incredibly satisfying. Salud!

Not a fan of Belgian Ales to begin with. This is par for the course with me. Definitely not the worst I've had. Would still drink this beer over any Domestic Lagers. I will give this beer a try again in the future just to be certain that I'm not on a vein of IPA adoration.

For what this is supposed to be, Avery nailed it. It doesn't get overly hot here in Boulder... but when it does you can find everyone sitting outside at the tap room with a White Rascal.

They nailed the style with this one, even though it seems a little out of place among their usual big beer offerings. It has just enough substance while still being light and fruity. Just a really nice beer on a really hot day.

Oh it's cheap and comes in cans. Yeah, I'm sold too.
