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.

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.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is amber in color with a thin off-white head. Spices are the first thing I notice on the aroma. Coriander, clove, and nutmeg are there. A bit of apple and pear, but sort of watery. Some sweet malt and sugar in the background. Mostly spices on the palate, but noticeably watery. A little bit of malt sweetness, some hints of citrus peel, and that’s about it. What’s there is enjoyable, but it’s too watered down.

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
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 6/10; Overall: 13/20
