Served in an Ohio State shaker pint glass.

Memories of Hitchhiker's Guide flowing back for some reason... Anyway, this stuff pours a slightly hazy sunset amber topped by over a finger of cream-white foam. The nose comprises wheat, wet grass, flowers, light perfume-y orange peel, and lightly-toasted biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, along with some grapefruit peel. The alcohol isn't quite as present as I'd expected from other encounters with this brewery, which is a nice bit of surprise. The body is a lithe medium, with a very light moderate carbonation, a sorta/kinda fluid feel, and a sorta/kinda dry finish. Overall, a kinda limp wheatwine, one with little character and a subsequently bland flavor.

A- pours a reddish gold honey color. Lots of ivory foam, 3 fingers at least. Not much lacing for all that head though.

S- caramel, honey, lots of wheat grains and some bready yeast. A bit of herbal, earthy hops

T- slightly sweet from the caramel & honey notes. Wheat grains right upfront too. A bit boozy. Nice light herbal/ earthy hops layered in.

M- ever so slightly syrupy, but leans towards medium mouthfeel than thick

F- medium and slightly boozy

A nice beer that I'll appreciate more come Fall

Sampled on tap at Max's Taphouse (3/11/14)

A: Copper. No lacing. See through.

S: Sweet malts with a lot of raisins.

T: Sweet. Very much Belgian. Caramel.

M: Very smooth.

O: Good stuff. Almost like a dessert version of a quad/tripel/dubbel, or the doppelbocks.
