3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pleasant aroma of pasionfruit, delicate hops, and sweet malt. Appears a clear ambe color with a small creamy head that mostly dissipates. Flavor is grainy, with some caramel notes, and a not insignificant hoppy bitterness. Palate is medium-light and somewhat slick with good effervescence. Overall, a very tasty and pleasant brew, but much more pale ale than belgian. In fact, I don’t get much belgian character at all. Still, I do like the brew.

Pours a slightly hazy amber. Thin head. Lots of sweetness in the aroma. Somewhat floral. Taste is sweet with some caramel. A bit too sweet though. Drinkable but not really enjoyable. Medium bodied.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery.
Aroma is full of rich malt character and a ton of fruit esters. Light bananas, some pear, red apple and tropical fruit.
Pours a clear copper color with a thin white head with amazing retention.
Flavor is similar with a sweet caramel malt character and a ton of esters. Same esters as in the aroma along with some raisin. Light bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium high carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall an alright beer but I feel it needs something more to balance out all the esters.

A great beer from Avery's. Not one of my absolute favorites, but definitely worth a try. A drinkable beer with light alcohol taste. I tried a bottle.
