Chill haze amber with a large white head.

Just being honest, this smells like a Budweiser and tastes like caramelized malt; read: AAL.

Feel is crisp, zippy and "Lite."

Hazy orange/yellow. Large inch head, fuzzy lacing on the sides.

Meh, pretty subdued, nothing much going on here. Lemon peel, oak, wheat.

Lime, a bit of oak - tastes like a watered down witbier. Fairly mediocre.

Average mouthfeel, tastes no where near 7%, more like 4%.

A nice beer, but really nothing worth any trouble.

75cl green glass (damnit!) bottle with cork top served into a Westvleteren goblet in Belfort, France, where it was also acquired. Reviewed live.

A: 1.5 finger head of decent cream, okay thickness, and good retention. Cloudy lemon-yellow colour.

Sm: Lemon, barley, and slight cream. A mild strength aroma.

T: Lemon citrus ester hops. Some welcome light cream comes through, particularly on the climax. A light barley body. Quite refreshing albeit simple. Well built and balanced for what it's trying to do. Typical for the style.

Mf: Coarsely sharp and wet, with enough smoothness to remain refreshing. Quite nice, and complementary of the flavours in the body.

Dr: It's very drinkable, relatively high ABV, decently priced, and of enjoyable quality. It's not special, but it's worth a go. Give her a spin, lads.

A - a nice blond barnyard color. hazy hay hues and beaming yellow.

S- old man armpit. Bitter and funky. Tart farmyard.

T - yeasty but not too funky. Surprisingly sweet and floral hens the daffodils on the bottle I take it. Kinda biscuity on the finish.

M - pretty low in carbonation. Kinda like a mix between a limbic and a champagne. Yeasty and active.

O - pretty nice. Not something I'm gonna buy for just myself again. A little too sweet to drink the whole bottle alone.

Bottle from awesome girlfriend from beertopia in Omaha.
The pour is amazing... pours a nice murky yellow, and the head ia simply amazing. I have never quite seen anything like this... the pour fills 3/4 of the glass, with about a finger of head. And then it begins to grow, like the compressed sponge toy for kids. It slowly grows out of the glass, and I mean slowly...and by the time it stops, it is about 3 inches out the top... incredible.
Funky lemon on the nose.
Taste has some peach, lemon, some apple and a bit of funk and a dry crisp finish.

Thanks to Ken for sharing this one at a recent tasting. Poured a hazy yellow with a lingering ring of white foam. Aromas of bread, lemons, yeast and flowers. On the palate, this one was light bodied, tart and prickly, with flavors of straw, vanilla, yeast, lemons and light floral notes with a smooth dry citrus finish.

Rare beer club beer. This is another one of those beers that make me happy to be I the club. I never would have picked this up off the shelf in a store. This a a really nice beer. Doesn't smell like much, but it really comes through on flavor perfect summer beer. Crisp but flavorful.
