3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
At flying saucer beerfest. Slightly skunky aroma, with hay and spice. Poured a nice Texas burnt orange with a little white top. Taste of Malt, yeast, hay, and all that good stuff. Watery but smooth on the palate. Overall a solid brew. Texas brewskis, FTW.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Proving the wire cage on this sort of bottle is functional, after its removal this beer uncorked itself. Pours deep gold with a slight haze and a hugely active head. Aroma is bread, spice and a little fruit. Taste is similar, malty and a little yeast, though less funky than most actual Belgians.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear copper with a small frothy off white head. The aroma is a bready malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a bitter hop and dry malt finish. Easy to drink very good biere de garde from Adelberts.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.1 oz. bottle (bottle #09839) served in a shaker, because that’s how I roll- poured a 95% transparent light brown with a copper tint in color, extremely tiny white ring around the glass for a head, aroma of yeast, banana bread, pears, and cider. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is a little sweet, various esters transform themselves in the middle, finish is very drying. Okey dokey.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Watch out, it’s explosive...The pour itself is a burnt orange sort of color with a tall white head. The nose is much sweeter than expected. Lots of sweet malt and fruit notes with a bit of yeastiness. Quite a lot of apple to it. The flavor is heavy on the sweet sugar and malt notes. Lots of apple and pear fruit notes, maybe white grape, and a hint of banana. There is a mild yeastiness, too. Really an odd, though not unenjoyable, beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml C&C’d bottle picked up at Whip In, in Austin
Appearance: Pours clear golden/amber with a big foamy off-white head and good lacing
Aroma: Yeast, bready, dark fruit and spices
Taste: Malty, yeast, spicy with a dry light bitterness in the finish
The more I drink it and let it warm up the more I like it. At first it was harsh and bitter but it mellowed out and ended up being a nice sipper.
