On tap at hopleaf. Pours cloudy yellow. Very sweet and almost sticky in flavor. Good, but the sugariness is almost overwhelming.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2013 Bottle: light golden body with a touch of haziness, but rather unexpected clarity all around. Very volatile with a gigantic, off-white head. Aroma includes apple & banana esters with some white grape tartness, baked bread, & clumpy yeast. Taste follows through with more banana esters & a light grape-like, apple skin sharp astringency. Wheat, grains, & some faint clove & coriander spices show up with a bit of warmth. Mild phenol character, a touch of yeast & malty sweetness in the aftertaste. Decent, but nothing to write home about.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Murky light orange pour. Smaller white head. Aroma is malt, dark fruit, a little booze, and some spice. Picking up a hint of veggie soup broth as well. Carbonation is maybe a touch lacking. Slightly syrupy yet not too dense in the body. Decent enough beer, but not great.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Total Wine Glendale. Pours golden with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing. Not getting much on the nose. I definitely see what some are saying about bubble gum on the tongue. Finish lingers a bit. Not the best Belgian but at only $2.99 itís good value for money.

Nice orange pour with a short lived white head. Aroma is bubblegum yeast and caramel. Flavor is sweet, a bit yeasty. Kind of a bubblegum bomb, but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours dark orange with a short head. Dense aroma. Nutty, caramel creamy, malty goodness with bubble gum belgian yeast. Light-med sweet. Medium body, thick-creamy texture, soft carbonation and light sweet, oily bitter finish. Good, not great.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is oddly dark - very much the color of honey. Large bubbled head thatís pretty thick, and maintains at a 1/4 inch. Decent lacing.
I do not enjoy the smell. Certainly the scent of malt; also of corn.
Surprisingly considering the scent, i did enjoy the taste. A very gentle sourness, but appreciable none-the-less. Pretty par.
Mouthfeel is definitely the beerís strong point. Crisp and tart additions to the flavor.
Overall, this was a bit better than I expected, but nothing too special. Certainly an odd mix of some detrimental attributes, alongside some surprisingly good ones.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Smells of raisin and citrus. Pours a gold with an orange hue and a thick foamy head that slowly dissipates to a thin white film of bubbles. Tastes of white grape juice, orange citrus, and coriander. Medium carbonation, medium bodied. Excellent beer.
