3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Clear, deep amber ale with a small, creamy, off-white head. Great retention. Yeasty, biscuity aroma with notes of light citrus. The well-balanced flavor is a bit earthy, herbal and citrusy. Medium-bodied and astringent with fizzy carbonation. Tangy, crisp, drying finish.

Nicely hopped but somewhat off funky tasting Belgian pale. There is fruitiness there. Minty toothpaste drying aftertaste, with pepper and coriander. Some yeast aroma. Orange copper colour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange amber color with a thin and creamy eggshell white head. Thin lacing too. Nice citrus and yeast aroma. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter character. Soft spices and yeast flavoring as well. Sour fruit aftertaste at times. The finish is dry and fruity with a hint of spice. All in all a decent seasonal from Avery.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a clear deep orange with a thin, white head that dissipates to nothing. Smells like dishwater. Taste of dishwater, cardboard, seltzer water with a hint of fake orange flavor. Hilariously bad. Worse than Bruery Coton. Canít wait for a Bruery Avery epic collaboration.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Clear amber color, minimal head. The only other belgian Iíve had is the Ommegang BPA, and compared to that, this one seems watered-down. Kind of a strange aftertaste-texture, dry but sticky. Nice mild sweet taste, though. Toffee aroma, caramel. Still a decent drink. Although the first impression was poor, itís definitely getting better as it goes.

Pours golden out of bottle with white head, aroma has slight notes of some yeast, fruit, some slight biscuit and bread, some earth and a touch of grass. Taste is fairly simple, with a fruit, yeast, biscuity middle, some slight grass and earth, with a sweet finish. Not bad.
