Clear yellow, white froth.

Spice, floral, hay, I guess.

Yeasty, citric but very pithy. Still, I do like the up front flavor. Needs more hop character, IMO, to drive it.

Dry-ish, lot of carbonation.

Bottled October 23rd 2015. 750ml.

It pours a hazy straw yellow with a massive fizzy head of foam.

Smells yeasty, of Belgian spices, candi sugar, light lemon zest. Also, a smell usually associated with light struck; green bottle and only 3.5% abv.

Tastes of yeast, mild spicing, bit of banana and lemon, sweet like candi t.

Smooth, balanced, and scary drinkable. I love it.

On-tap 5/24/2015 at Doherty’s Ale House, Warwick, RI served in a snifter glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short foamy white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is faint but contains Belgian yeast, wheat, some fruit and some spice.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of wheat, Belgian yeast and a thin malt character. Then some mildly sweet flavors of bananas, citrus and spice come in. The malt character is and the hops presence is very mild but there’s a good balance. The after-taste is slightly bready.

M: Crisp and smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down very easily, not too filling, extremely mild kick, good representation of style, this is a solid beer to drink for a while if you’re in the mood for the style.

Poured from 750mL corked & caged green bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: light golden hue with a moderate to light haze and a strong effervescence. Head is two fingers of frothy white foam with moderate retention. Not too bad.

Smell: lightly sweet with a little bit of malt and a good bit of graininess. There's just a hint of funk, which is nice, but also a little dab of green bottle skunkiness which, thankfully, wafts away relatively quickly.

Taste: a little sweet, a little grainy and lightly funky. The hops aren't strong but add a nice green grassiness to the overall flavor. Very light, but nice.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a good carbonation and a big, mouth-filling creaminess; great for the style and the low ABV.

Overall: it's hard to get a big flavor out of such a small beer, but Dupont does a pretty good job here. That said, the low ABV, big fizziness and big vernal attitude make this beer colossally drinkable. Woo!

Think a Berliner without a heavy sourness. Right amount of tartness and carbonation

Cloudy light straw color with huge rocky head. Smells like wheat crackers, and hints of corn tortilla, smoke, apple, and black pepper. Light, dry, refreshing, extremely drinkable.
