2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Bottle, at Patricks. A clear dark golden beer topped by a minimal off-wiite head. Sweetish, fruity and slightly vegetal nose. Sugary, tropical fruits too. Medium body with some alcohol. Sugary, tropical fruits and some caramel notes in the flavor. Fruity finish with some vegetables. Notes of caramel. A pretty disappointing one. 100527

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy nut brown color, decent creamy "yellow" head. Malty, barley and weak hops in the nose. Medium-bodied, a bit sweet malty, pale ale-type even more than Belgium. A shade of sugar in the finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(12oz bottle) Medium, creamy beige head atop crystal clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, apple, melon, hay, lemon. Taste is medium sweet, apple, melon, caramel, pepper, lemon, some cookie dough, orange. Watery light-medium body, light chalkiness, nice crispness, would work as a lawnmower beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, dark golden with a decent head. Aroma of caramel malts, undefined spiciness and anise...they aiming for Kwak? Sweet, somewhat uneventful palate with a little spiciness in the finish. Never was into the whole "Belgian pale" thing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
hazy amber, whispy beige head, touch of lace, sweet spicy aroma with a touch of carmel and a hint of fusel alcohols and just a touch of farmhouse funk, mild bitter spiced flavor on a nice dry malt base, not a whole lot of complexity but a really nice drinking beer

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Has the yeast, spice and sweetness of a light Belgian aroma. Singel. Something of a stone fruit undercurrent. Poured clear amber with a humongous frothy white head that laced. A bit thin bodied. Floral hop. Fruity spice. Not as sugary as the dubbels or tripels. Not as alcoholic either. The finish is relatively dry, and it seems to leave hop bitter all over the mouth. Really good approach.
