The name writes a check the beer can't cash. It's a good looking beer. Grassy malty smell.
Herbal flavor, almost no hops. Dime a dozen Belgian golden ale. Not impressed. If you don't want to brew hoppy beer that's fine but don't try and trick people who want a hoppy beer into buying your product. Even after the disappointment of not getting what you're expecting the beer itself is average for the style it actually is. A better name for this beer is "Buyer's Remorse."

First had: on tap at their tasting room

Poured a clear, golden brown color with a few stray bubbles on top. Basic aroma of a typical golden ale, toasted grains, light floral hops, touch of Belgian yeast. Similar taste, toasted grains, honey sweetness, notes of bready yeast, floral hops, light fruits. Fairly light body, easily drinkable, a little stale in the aftertaste, but otherwise a decent brew.
