2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper/orange with fast fading off-white head. Aroma of over ripe banana and cooked vegetable with some fruit notes. Flavor has faint bubble gum, dirt, leaves, some fruit notes, light grain and musty. Mouth feel is light-medium body and watery with very high carbonation. Overall, not exactly thrilled with this.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep orange-brown with a light head, fading quickly to a ring. Nose is floral and candied with phenols. Very rich -- considerable flavor of toast with some dark fruit. Definitely Belgian yeast. Finishes clean. Quite good for not being from Belgium.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours an amber / copper color with sparse head and sparse lacing. Kinda sweet with some notes of bread dough and a watery mouth feel. Not bad, but nothing special.

A little yeast and malt on the aroma. A relatively light Belgian character and sessional.

Had this on tap at Monks in Philly. This one grew on me. It had a nice floral aroma from a pale amber with a small head. The flavor was citrus, some spice and some sweet malt. It is very light and quite drinkable compared to some others of the style.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[Draft @ Monks] Hazy golden color with a medium sized white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, toffee, grass, and citrus. Taste of citrus, crisp, grassy hops, with light toffee sweetness, and a lightly bitter, hoppy finish.

Not bad, not great. Sort of forgettable. Belgian yeast notes on the palate not much in the nose. Slightly bitter finish, sort of thin. Just OK.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden amber, clear with a shiny white head that fades quickly, big bubbles a little soapy looking head... Pungent fruity aroma, apricot, maybe peaches, kinda spicy... Decent aroma, interesting, has a desserty feel to it... lively, kinda spicy, a small bit of a generic belgian malt flavor... Light to medium light body, some banana... dry finish..

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with hints of light amber. Thin egg-shell head. Smells of phenolics with slight spice and grain. Taste is phenolic, spice, a decent dose of grain, with a tart apple finish. Much yummier than anticipated. Touch of spicy earthy hop bitterness and flavor.
