2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber/bronze with some opacity, Thick and bready head with a nose that is notable for slight citrus and dough. On the tongue sour, bland malty, and yeasty finish with subtle fruit ester and coriander. Decent, but a ways to go to match Belgium.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy straw color - fluffy head/lace - nose is lightly floral, yeasty, a bit of tropical sweetness - medium bodied and lightly yeasty - flavor is lightly acidic/tangy, with slight wheat, yeast, pineapple, lemon - very light phenols - finishes with a lightly herbal character - quite light, and lacking the complexity I typically like in Belgian ales, but it is fairly refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
[Bottle] Pours a light shade of orange with very little head on top. Initial aroma is of green apples, mild citrus, papery notes and yeast. Taste is dominated by green apple, unfortunately. Some brown sugar, caramel, straw and grassy hops round it out. Light in body. Maybe I had a bad bottle of this? Otherwise, this wasn’t very good at all.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle @ home. Slightly hazy, dark orange appearance with a white head. Sweet citrusy, somewhat spicy, toasty toffee malty, dark citrus fruity aroma. Slightly piney bitter hoppy, orange-tangerine citrusy, pretty spicy, peppery flavor. Really an awkward taste and aroma. I’m not feeling it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2011 This brew pours up a very hazy apricot-colored body with a minimal head and no lacing (at least in this sampling). Citrus-y scents waft about immediately upon opening and plenty of hops as well. Lots of fruity flavors (mostly apple) and citrus-y flavors as well. There’s just a tad bit of sweetness in the background but lots of hops hit you right off the bat. Not too much, not too little.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amberish with a spattered pancake that recedes slowly leaving behind a fluffy lace. Smells of sweet malted hay. Medium nectar with ample carbonation for a nice cotton ball in the mouth type texture. Malty upfront with nuances of dried herbs and stonefruit. The finish is bittered nicely. Not a bad little beer. A bit on the olde world side of the spectrum.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber pour with frothy white head and lace. Belgian yeast, toffee, and brown sugar. Wheaty malt flavor, Belgian yeast, stale bread, and light dry spiciness. Medium to thin bodied. Not bad.
