Tap @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours a hale orange with a good, off-white head. Aroma is like a Belgian blond. Fruity with apple. Taste is a different matter. Caramel, fairly sweet, a lot of spiciness. Caraway, light coriander, earthy. Sticky, a bit light, good carbonation.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2014 Draft at Jerry?s. Copper-amber with huge, foamy, white head, wet lacing / Musty nose of toasted grain, honey, light citrus / Light to medium body, thin, lightly sour, mostly dry with bitter finish / Simple flavors of toasted grain with notes of honey, banana, and citrus / Nothing particularly Belgian about this very uninspiring ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a deep reddish amber with a small off white head. The nose is very fruity with notes of apple. Slight florals as well. Odd taste with those fruity notes, florals, and slight plastic phenols. I’m guessing that’s the Yerba Santa. Starts off a little sweet but finishes fairly dry. This one didn’t do much for me.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a deep golden color with two fingers of white foam. The nose has some yeasty esters, lots of bubblegum and a bit of earthy malts. The palate, though not as sweet as the nose, is a touch disjointed. Yeasty phenols, pepper, apple, earthy doughy malt and bubblegum.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Draught at In De Wildeman, Amsterdam, 25 July 2013) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Malty, spicy nose with dried fruit, toast and hints of wild yeast. Malty, spicy taste with notes of dried apricots, orange, gentle flavours of wild yeast and a certain spicy bitterness in a fairly dry finish. More than medium body, quite dry. Well balanced and tasty. Quite nice.
