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.

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. Can’t 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 I’ve 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, it’s definitely getting better as it goes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Orange amber body, moderate off white head. (3+) Mild metallic-glass notes that I suspect may be from the glass rather than the beer but can’t be sure. Mild muted roange, very mild grass. Aroma is pleasant but difficult to tease from the glass. Mild citrusy bitterness, exceptionally muted resim hides behind muted fruit and caramel malt. Average palate. This could potentially be quite dull but has just enough flavour to be quite drinkable and well balanced. <P>
