A: The pour is a pale yellow/straw color with plenty of haze and a long lasting white head.

S: Quite a bit of yeastiness to the nose--lots of esters, but primarily of the spice variety. Pepper and coriander provide a bit of aroma, as well as some light fruitiness and slightly sweet malt.

T: A surprising amount of bitterness to this beer, which was not expected in any way. The flavor is mostly bready with much of the same spicy ester quality as the nose displays. Sweet malts and fruits help me to deal with the bitterness.

M: The body is a bit on the light side with a moderate carbonation to it.

D: This is a beer I feel pretty neutral on. Nothing blew me away, but no huge faults either. That said, I don't really care to try it again.

On tap at the brewpub. Described as a Belgian style ale. Poured into a pint glass. Comes in at 6%.

A-Pours a hazy, unfiltered yellow. Has a nice one finger white head that has some great staying power.

S-Lots going on in the nose. Pick up on banana, clove, bubblegum, yeast, and some wheat.

T-The banana and clove spice jump out throughout and there is some definite sweetness that was not noticeable in the nose. There is also some nice lemon on the finish.

M-Medium bodied and very smooth from the ever present foamy head. It is perfectly carbonated.

D-An easy sipping beer. The sweetness/clove spice would eventually get to me.

A very approachable warm weather beer from Marin BrewCo.
