2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at the Iron Hill Belgium Comes to West Chester event. The pour yields a very light colored beer. Lighter than straw and more along the lines of a Berliner. A bit of a head without too much retention. The nose and flavor have a touch of spice and breadiness, but are otherwise quite watery. Body is very light. Somewhat dry. Not a big fan.

translucent straw, white head dies quick to ring, good lacing. Pear and apple flesh ester nose, light sugar and filling grain. Sweet overall, thin with plenty of sugar, no offensive esters but singular sweetness.

Some florals and some alcohol. Not a lot to this. Golden pour with big head. Tangy finish. Some citrus. Not great for style but drinkable as beer. Bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on draft at the Heavy Seas Ale House this beer poured a hazy vibrant gold color with a small creamy white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was boozy with table sugar, yeastiness and golden fruits. The flavor was tangy and sweetish with table sugar, pepper, cardboard and golden fruits. Turns dryish on the long finish. Moderately full bodied. Pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly weird label - sandsurfers? Tawny pour with a fast-dropping head. It is a pretty sweet, tropical tripel. Cantaloupe and peach notes, balanced by some sharpness and warmth. This is a good one.
