3.88/5  rDev -6.7%

A-Pours a bright sunny yellow with a thin bright white head. It is somewhat hazy. Not much lacing. The appearance reminds me of a hot and lazy summer day.

S-Belgian yeast, some noble hops, and malt.

T-Essentially the same as the nose. Belgian yeast with some noble hops. Its very refreshing.

M-Crisp and fairly clean. Its not too thin or too thick.

D-Great session beer especially for the summer months.

4.25/5  rDev +2.2%

(4.0) A: Hazy and golden with a very tall creamy eggshell coloured foam head with intermingled sporadic bubbles. Very good retention and lacing.

(4.5) S: Banana, pineapple/passion fruit, bubblegum, cloves, belgian-style yeast, pepper, and cane sugar. Very pleasant and enticing. Appropriate proportions of each aroma that come together extremely well.

(4.0) T: Similar to aroma with ripe and sweet tropical fruits coupled with spice including a bitter pepper taste. A refreshing taste of earthy dry grasses with some floral hints. Enjoying how the emphasis isn’t on the sweet side, but rather on the dry and bitter spice side of the spectrum.

(4.5) M: Medium bodied with a moderate/tingling carbonation. Chalky (in a good way) with a bit of chewy character. Lingering dry and bitterness. Wonderful stuff.

(4.5) D: A delicious farmhouse that really brings all the best qualities of the style together.

4.18/5  rDev +0.5%

Pours a golden amber with an off white head that fades but leaves nice lacing. The smell is complex, some nice sweet fruit notes, some malt and spice notes as well. The taste starts somewhat sweet with the spice and fruit upfront, followed by a somewhat tart taste finishing with a malty taste. The mouthfeel is very smooth, some alcohol content detected in the aftertaste, but overall a silky beer with nice balance. This is a great drinker, not overpowering flavor, but lots of flavor is packed into this beer. Definitely worth checking out.

4.6/5  rDev +10.6%

750 ml, corked and caged into a tulip glass. Pale honey and straw in color, with a persistent thin lacy head. A touch cloudy, to add that element of mystery. Smells of lemons, apricots, with a medicinal note in the background. Beautimous. The taste is sharp and crisp, almost bitter. There is a silky maltiness that holds it all together nicely. The finish is malty and dusty, but not too dry. The aftertaste is spiced fruit. I can only say :) The mouthfeel is slippery and tingly. Always a good combination. The drinkability? Pour me another! The alcohol is a plesant warmth as it trickles down the throat. Nothing off-puttish and the flavor balance makes you want more. And now I'll have more.

A: Clear apple juice colour with some minimal but rapid carbonation bubbles. Frothy 3 fingers of white head that settled to a thin cap.

S: Up front floral and grass notes with sweet hits of lemon peel and coriander. Also some yeasty sweet bread and light malts.

T: Less sweet that the scent with yeasty bread and grassy earthiness. Taste of mild malts and a crisp clean dry finish.

M: Clean, crisp and dry with a upfront sting of carbonation. Maybe a little heavy carbonation, but that's my personal preference.

O: This dry brew is easy to drink, easy to enjoy and easy to pour another. The mix of malts and hops with a dry finish makes this a refreshing treat, uncomplicated and straight froward.
