4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Commercial TapHouse. Quite pleased to get to try this. Hazy blonde, nice head, quite attractive on a hot summer day. Aroma was lighlty wheaty with a spicy yeast note. Flavor was a match, with a really good spice backbone over the malt flavors. Faint undefined fruit as well. Finished dry. Really refreshing, never would have pegged this at 8.2%. Really a very good beer.

22 oz bottle pours a hazy yellow brew. Good long lasting head which left some nice lacing. Aromas of tangy Belgium yeasts fruits and sweet malts. Refreshing and crisp. Nice lively mouth feel due to the carbonation.

Pale golden pour with a tight white head. The nose is lightly fruity and spicy. A kiss of tart wheatiness and some very fresh spiciness as well. Light malt backed by sweet vanilla as well. Lovely soft crackery malt and a great yeasty spice/fruit character.

Tap at Mugs. Pours a hazy, light yellow with a soft, pure white head. Aroma holds some lovely doughy bread notes, augmented by light lemon and spice notes. Flavor is reasonably sweet, with doughy malts, lemon, bubblegum and yeast. Light to medium in body with average carbonation. Finishes with fruity zest and dough malts, along with a modest dryness. Delicious.
