Cork blew off with literally no effort, the head was frothy which is typical for this style. This is a belgian blonde but didnt have that cat. The smell is fruity, estery, with hop nose. The taste is a little off hard to explain, but the sters come through and make for an easy drinking beer. Overall descent for one of their first beers

On tap at the Draught House during the RateBeer Winter Gathering.

The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma has some citrus and floral notes from the hops, as well as some biscuit notes from the malt. The flavor is more of the same. I get a lot of toffee and biscuit malts, as well as a little bit of Belgian yeast and spice notes. There is also a little bit of orange citrus. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

The pour is a cloudy yellow color with a huge white head. Bananas and pears with lots of spice. A bit of yeast, some straw, and a strange corn aroma. The flavor has a very weird note of creamed corn to it, which I can’t really get passed. Sweet malt, fruits, and some mild spices. A touch of yeast, some grass, straw, and mild bitterness.

Terrible. I could even drink it. I twisted off the wire cap just slightly and the cork almost took out my eye. Foam started shooting out everywhere. I tried pouring and it smelledinfectuous fouled like bad homebrew. Couldnt get it to stop foaming so I just tossed it. Bad quality control.

Appearance: Arrives with a hazy honey color that leaves a few strands behind

Smell: Bread, bubblegum, white pepper and green apple esters

Taste: Bready, up front, with a developing green apple character; herbal coriander, grains of paradise and bubblegum appear by mid-palate; the beer grows progressively sweeter, after the swallow, bringing an herbal, green apple finish

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with low to moderate carbonation

Overall: An interesting take with good complexity but the beer suffers from being too sweet
