3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml from State Line. Faded amber with a decently fluffy head, nice sticky retention. Nose has some mild spice from yeast, with a good bit of bready malt. Comes across as a bit stale, and I wonder how old this bottle is. Flavors are mostly quite dry, but not in the crisp sense. It’s overall a bit on the down side.

Has an interesting scent. Nothing all too special as far as flavour is concerned.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Crisp palate. Refreshing beer. Toffee and banana flavours. Long finish. Nice.

750 ml. bottle. Lot 0607. Pours a medium, off white, lasting head over an initially clear amber (SRM 8) body....nose is light malts, with cereal, light yeast....taste is light fruits, pear, apple, finishing with a malty cereal, finishing medium dry....mouth feel is light, carbonation low. This is a pleasant, not particularly interesting Belgian Ale. BJCP 5/3/11/4/5

Bottle from Mitra Bergen. Dark amber body with medium head. Nose is yeasty and spicy. Taste of caramel, malts and toffee. Sweet. Watery, high ABV and pretty good. But lacks an overall punch.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An unexciting, fairly mediocre Belgian. I was looking for a calm, middling beer tonight, and even that relatively low bar was not met. The beer pours a normal enough warm brown-amber color with an extremely effervescent head. The head puffs up hugely at first, filling the glass with bubbles with only a couple inches of liquid. Despite all of this initial excitement, the head actually dissipated quite quickly and left very little lacing. Mouthfeel is under-carbonated. The smell is really lacking. It’s a flat, yeasty odor with very little of the normal complexity of good Belgian yeast. The flavor is somewhat better but still odd. It’s sweet with a fair bit of caramel and bread malt flavor, but it’s not really very interesting or complex. The bitter yeasty flavor is also there in the flavor. There is a merely passing earthy Belgian note. The beer just doesn’t come together

Draft @ Max’s. Dark red pour with some tan head. Fruits: apples, peach and some light pear flavor. Tartness is light and some yeast influence.
