My first experience with just 12 oz serving but was attracted to the lush and extraordinarily rich soft malts and just a glimmer from hops Belgian style. Yes deserves more consideration and a least a 4 can test. You know don't want to join jump to conclusions on such a meager sample. Can condition and treatment could have been lending or leading me to RASH judgment. This beer needs a trip Wood bridge and draft.

Of course you should know I live in Delaware and in close proximity to Dogfish Head and have a very intimate look for hops when sampling. I assume it is similar to that ability of people that can taste even the slightest influence of oak.

Poured into a sam adams glass, nice full head developed, white and frothy to creamy, with great retention and lacing. Appearance was cloudy with a golden honey color. Aroma was citrus and yeast with some spice and grass notes. Tasted grainy and yeasty with floral, herbal and citrus notes. Nice medium to full mouth feel with a sweet and lingering aftertaste.

12 oz can at fridge temp poured into a tulip. No freshness info.

Pours out a light cloudy golden color, about one finger of white head with some very nice retention and sticky lacing.

Warming, sweet candied grain, Belgian yeast, bubblegum.

Classic Belgian strong pale, bubblegum, sweet sugary grain, light Belgian yeast phenols, grassy hops, just a slight tingle that let's you know the ABV.

Medium bodied, goes down smooth and easy.

A pretty spot on example of the style. This beer out of a wine barrel is probably something to behold.

Can share at Proof courtesy of Masterson. Head!!! Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with about half an inch of head just in a rocks glass. Head lasted extremely well. Great lacing. Thick white collar once the head did fade. Sweet grassy aroma with some clean earthy hops. Taste is similar with a touch of funk. Medium to high carbonation and medium body. Very enjoyable.

As a Connecticut resident I love New England Brewery. It's close by and I love to bring friends by to see the small, but ambitious location. The color is golden with a great foam. It's refreshing yet still has ample body to be drank alone. The hints of citrus on the end balance well with the wheaty taste in the beginning. We paired it with light Italian and were very happy with how well the beer paired. The price point on a four pack is pretty fair and the availability in stores inside CT is very nice. Everyone we turn on to this beer keeps coming back for more. While some beers tend to give either a love or hate reaction, this one is almost guaranteed to appease almost anyone's palate. On a side note, absolutely love the name and the artwork on the side of the can.
