Bottle poured into a tulip

A: Pours a very light yellow. The pillowy cloud of head looks like you could rest your head on it and fall asleep and it glistens in the light. Spectacular.

S: Aroma is spicy and yeasty. Wafts of fresh cut straw emanate, not all that sweet but great for a farmhouse ale.

T/M: Lots of bubbles up front are tangy. It takes a second for the fizz to dissipate from the tongue, but once they do, the flavor is very light with a bit more spicy earthiness and just a little metallic like champagne.

It’s a very light, fizzy beer, not that bad but there are better choices. It looks incredible, though.

Pours golden amber with a thick, rocky white head and tons of lacing.

Smells of lemon and grass.

Taste is mildly sweet with some grapefruit/lemon notes. Nice mildly bitter finish. More bitterness than I can remember in other examples of this style.

Mouthfeel is very carbonated with a nice dryness to it.

Overall this is refreshing and easy to drink.

S: Grassy, spicy, white pepper, oak almost, rich, pilsner malt.

L: Huge carbonated white head, solid lacing, good retention. Cloudy dark orange yellow.

T: Semi-sweet pils malt, with some white pepper. Some clove and other spicing. Medium low spicy bitterness leading to additional rich maltiness. Finishes light and dry, crisp.

M: Medium bodied, rich and crisp at the same time.

There is a reason this is the benchmark for this style. Rich without being heavy, enough dryness to keep it crisp. Great layers of spice and flavor.

A hazy orange glass with a nice head. Grass and citrus smells with a hint of funk. Taste is awesomely refreshing with a big hit of lemony, grassy hops and a clean dry finish. Mouthfeel is spot on with a light almost airy feel.

As far as I'm concerned, it is the greatest summer beer ever. Period.

Poured from a 750ml corked and caged bottle into a Dogfish Head Signature glass. Split with my buddy Scotty.

A: Hazy straw colored brew. Poured very gently still leads to a humongous fluffy white 3-4 finger head that does not move. Lacing is inconsistent, yet present.

S: FUNKY! As I poured this beer my wife said "hey what smells like a skunk?" I said it was the beer and she didn't believe me. Lots of barnyard, shoelace, lemon and zest mixed in to one wonderfully smelly beer.

T: Oh man. Sweet, toned, not at all like the nose in that the funk disappears almost completely and leaves a most excellent flavor profile.

M: Dry, crisp, wonderful mouthfeel. Tons of carbonation makes all of the flavor dance across your tongue in a wonderfully coordinated ballet. This is one of the most flavorful beers I've ever had.

O: Fantastic. Wonderful. Totally out of left field but I really love this beer and I will be getting as much as I can to sit on and have on hand.

330ml bottle poured into tulip 12/1/12

A hazy pale golden yellow with lots of tiny bubbles feeding a large bone white head that hangs around for ages slowly falling to an island leaving big chunks of random lace

S lots of spicy yeast with some cereal and peppery lemon, some white fleshed fruit and a little bubblegum, take that with a grain of salt because I'm smelling bubblegum in everything lately and I checked the beard for gum (no gum)

T flavors still solid but not as strong, not as fruity but perhaps more spice

M if the bubbles were any bigger this would be a foamy mess, but their pinpricks and make it feel creamy, yeasty aftertaste

O great stuff here and its easy too forget this is a strong beer because it goes down quick and has nothing in the way of booze

I want to say this would be a nice summer brew but I'd be broke and wasted by 3oclock. I can see myself drinking this again very soon

375ml bottle from Pick’s poured into a snifter. Pours a very cloudy dark gold with about 3 fingers of thick frothy white head. Aroma of light citrus fruits and some nice peppery spice. Taste is light bitter. Mostly citrus and spicy hops. Very dry, almost reminds me of champagne yeast. Light bodied with a thin texture. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall,not bad. Very drinkable but not really special. I have to disagree with Men’s Journal calling it "the best beer in the world". It would probably be great for drinking outside on a hot summer day, but not so much in the middle of a cold winter.
