A- Poured from the 750ml into a snifter and a goblet. Yeast hazed golden body with a nice white pillow of creamy foam on top. Head rises to about a finger high and has decent retention. Nice cloud and ring remain on top of the beer leaving spotty lace.

S- Big citrus rind with a wealth of orange peel and slight tropical fruit notes layered over a somewhat spicy and tart yeast feel. Coriander, white pepper, vanilla honey, wheat and a light sweetness as well.

T- Fruity and spicy yeast character carries over with even more added depth on the palate. Stone-fruit tart tangerine, big orange peel citrus, banana and apples/pear in a fruity Wit. Fruit character is joined by spicy pepper, coriander, clove and some cooking herbs. Light cracked grains, slight funk and sweetness.

MF- Light and semi-dry overall body. Nice high end foamy carbonation supports the body and flavors. Sightly tart finish.

Not a super bubble gum banana bomb but more like a Saison with some of those qualities balanced in nicely, which follows style just fine.

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that died down and consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of wheat and lemon and orange citrus are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the lemon citrus seems a bit stronger. No spices are perceptible.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The light-bodied nature of this beer makes it very easy to drink. It has some refreshing and thirst-quenching properties.

2012 on the cork

A: A somewhat hazy, pale gold beer. pours with a finger of rocky white head with a good head retention.

S: There is a green glass beer, Saaz hops moderately-light skunked aroma at first that fades after a minute. A moderate wheat sweetness with moderate coriander and orange peel notes. A light earthy hops aroma.

T: Orange and spice are the more prominent flavors followed by a light bit of wheat malt sweetness. Some spice and fruit flavors from the yeast. There is a light hops bitterness and little in the way of hops flavor. The balance is about even with an off-dry finish.

M: A somewhat crispy, medium-light bodied beer with a high level of carbonation.

O: A average example of the style although it's very likely I've got an older bottle on my hand and a fresher sample would rate better.

(Served in a chalice)
2011 on the cork
A- This beer pours a slightly hazy dried lemon color with a thin fizzy white head that fades to a film.

S- This beer has a fresh yeasty dried lemon zest aroma with a slight floral finish. There is a club soda note that comes through as the beer opens.

T- The clean flavor has a scrubbed by a tight fizz. There is some lemon zest and coriander notes with a green hop note and flint taste in the finish. The flavors do grow a bit as it opens but it still stays soft.

M- The light mouthfeel has a full crisp fizz that fills the mouth and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- The light crisp beer is very sessionable with some nice flavors. It would be nice if there was a little less fizz and the head doesn’t last long at all.

750ml Caged and corked green bottle. Poured into a Hoegaarden glass.

Appearance: Pale, straw yellow in color. Mostly clear with a slight haze. two finger white foamy head that has a pretty long retention. No lacing.

Aroma: Uh-oh thought this smelled a little skunky at first. White-wine fruitiness. Light apple cider. Plenty of spice, coriander. A bit of funkiness to it.

Taste: At first offers a quick fruitiness to it. A crisp and light apple cider comes to mind. Tangy. Coriander and orange peel spice. herbal. again some slight funk. Faintly pick up a little biscuity malt.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and dry. Lighter bodied. Soft carbonation. Very drinkable. There's some decent flavors going on.
