3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent Belgian Pale, bitter and citric, with a clean, hoppy finish. Too bad it was brewed in collaboration with the Alstroms. Gives the brew an asshole-ish aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Served a hazy golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades down fairly slowly leaving behind some good lace.
S - Aroma is a mix of light wheat with some sweetness, citrus, and grass. There is some Belgian yeast as well and a touch of funk.
T - Starts off with some sweet grains with some lemon and citrus and some light yeast. Through the middle some funk comes through with some more grain and lemon, as well as some gassy hop flavor. The finish is a mix of bigger yeast characters with some funk and lemon.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate-plus carbonation. Feels smooth with a very crisp and dry finish.
D - Very drinkable. Nicely balance Belgian session ale with some light hop and Belgian yeast flavors.

Sampled at Brewvival 2012. Clear light yellow pour with big white head. Big citrus and noble hop nose. Lemongrassy and green pine flavor, a little slight funkiness which I guess comes from the trappist yeast they used. Pretty good for what it was.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big Boring Beer. This one has some nice nuances with the trappist yeast which adds some saison like complexity to an otherwise run of the mill blonde. Take an average looking Blonde and give her a boob job.
