I had this rarity on-tap at the brewpub during a recent stay in St. Louis.

A: Poured a mildly cloudy, slightly darker than straw yellow color, with about a 1/2 finger head that stuck around for a bit.

S: I got the Belgian yeast strain right away, but it wasn't too funky in the least. Not an extreme spice bomb by any stretch, and this had a very yeasty disposition overall.

T: This was a very fresh-filtered-water-esque Belgian style wit through and through with hints of lemon and lots of yeast all around.

M: The lacing was downright ridiculous and the spice component was rather mild in the banana and coriander department which I though was a good change of pace.

O: This was a nice entry and one that should appeal to the masses who are normally turned off by extreme, spice-laden Witbiers.

A: Beautiful hazy golden color with a nice large fluffy white head.

S: Very nice belgian yeast funk. Earthy and smells of hay.

T: Belgin yeast right up front. Spicy on the back end. Wonderful creamy citrus flavor.

M: Bubbly, spicy, and a mild bitterness. Creamy and perfect consistency.

O: Notbad at all! Really enjoyed the mouthfeel. Great way to get a nice funky belgian flavor without thd alcohol content. Awesome "session" beer.

Hazy gold with a fair white head. Great retention and splashy lace. Looks like a good time.

Smells like Belgian yeast, lemongrass, hay, bananas foster and beach sand.

Tastes like yeasty spicey lemongrass and melted butter with pear, bananas, and apricots. Good stuff.

Very drinkable for a Belgian.

A: Misty golden/amber color. Gorgeous lacing.

S: Very zesty aroma of malt, wheat, and hops. Slight citrus bouquet accents the sweetness quite nicely.

T: Strong malt sweetness initially. Lingering hints of grapefruit, honey, and coriander

M: Medium-light body. Very crisp and refreshing. Slight burn that is quite invigorating

Serving type: Tap

Looks more like a hef, good lacing but little head and few bubbles, yellow and hazy, but nice for the style, an appealing looking glass of beer.

Both smelled and tasted strongly of lemons and ginger. Should have almost been a "ginger beer."

Drinkability would be a 4 or 4.5 if you're especially fond of ginger, but otherwise this was a slightly above average offering for the style, a decent brew.

Pours a cloudy, golden/copper color. 2/3 inch head of a white color. Great retention and great lacing. Smesll of yeast, citrus (banana), sweet malt, slight tart malt, and slight spice. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp with an average carbonation level. Tastes of slight tart malt, slight sweet malt, yeast, slight hops, and citrus (banana). Overall, a good blend, body, mouth feel, and aroma.

Enjoyed on-tap @ the Schlafly Tap Room in St. Louis, MO for $4.50. Tapped from the Black/Stainless Steel Handle into a 16oz Nonic/Pint Glass.

Aroma- Has tons of strong malt and light amber characteristics. Almost no hop aroma.

Appearance- Received with a 1.5 finger head that has poor retention. The body is clear as can be and a copper tone to it. Leaves thick lace behind.

Flavor- A malt bomb from the first initial taste and very clean. A ton of wheat flavor comes around mid drink and stays til the end. Herbal/Floral hops? No bitterness.

Mouthfeel- Light Bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth but then bites with wheat flavor.

Overall Impression- While never having a Belgian "Singel" before, this one was fairly generic. A good beer to start off your day but far too much of a wheat flavor for me. Wish more hops were around.

A - Poured a hazy, golden orange color with a small, white head of foam. It had limited retention and left little lacing.

S - It smelled fruity and yeasty with a spiciness.

T - It tasted of wheat malt and a spicy bite. Some fruity flavors, too.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light to medium bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This was a nice ale. I'm glad I got to try it at the Bottleworks.

Consumed 5/25 at the Bottleworks location.
Served in a pilsner glass.

A: This beer pours a hazy, lighter golden color. Not much of a head with the pour but sheets of lacing are left behind.

S: Nose is muted but light banana, apple, and yeast.

T: Taste starts with a very light biscuit mingled with apple. Bigger yeast comes through in the middle, with lighter spiced notes. Far more apple comes in with banana and clove taking more of a presence.

M: Lighter side of medium body, medium carbonation, nice slick feel with a relatively clean finish.

O: Goes down easy, tasty, not too filling, mild kick, decent representation of style.

A: Beautiful golden, nice puffy inviting head. Decent lace.

S: Somewhat lacking. Did pick up candy, yeast, malts.

T: Makes up for lack of nose. Lemon, swet malt, candy, light clove. Litle bananna on the back of the tounge. nice.

M: Super clean. Went down well with my pub burger.

D: Under 5%? Great taste? Fresh? Perfect. Got a growler...

Many a sample of this fine new brew went down at the Schlafly Repeal festival. A keg of this is gonna make my kegorator next week!

Has an unfiltered lemon yellow pour - a white head pops up, but quickly dies. A light Belgian brew, it has light notes of Belgian yeast, clove, banana and lemon in the aroma and taste. Light, but tasty on all bases - and enough spice to balance out the finish.

Very easy drinking brew, this will be a real crowd pleaser - from the novice to the more experienced beer person. The easy 4.9% alcohol will make this a STL summer session brew out by the pool while listening to Cardinal baseball.
