3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Yeasty "Belgian" characteristics with noticeable maltiness and alcohol. Slight hop aroma as it warms. Nothing fancy.
Appearance: Darker gold color, big head, clarity good. Good lacing on the sides of the glass, and the head is persistent. This is a nice looking beer.
Flavor: Honeyish malts with some yeast tartness. Hop bitterness is present with no hop flavor.
Mouthfeel: Some alcohol warmth, medium mouthfeel.
Overall: Nice enjoyable beer, but nothing special. Very one dimensional

very light in color and very fizzy, very, very fizzy. Large white, big bubble head. Aroma of straw and cheap american beer. Flavor is very grainy and wheaty with a sharp finnish. I am not a big fan of wheats, this is why.

the aroma is intriging with orange banana and maybe peach or apricot. the color is a hazy copper. It fell over on the way back from the store, oterwise I think it would be clear. the head is huge, and rockyand lingers for a long time. the flavor is malty with big orange flavors. the maltyness is huge. very much like a german beer. there is little bitterness but some good hop flavor mixed with orange peel and coriander. there is some slight alcohol flavors emerging. the body is fairly light for a 7% beer. this is a little too malty for a belgian beer, but its balanced well and very drinkable. it does have a kind of giant brewery flavor.
