4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Had a 2013 release, and it was simply phenominal. Little head, hazy golden-like appearance. Smooth, subtle, and most of all flavoursome to the pallet. Definitely caught up to me QUICK. If you can manage to find one on your local shelves- I highly recommend purchasing it. You will not regret it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Light amber/gold, airy white head. thin lacing. Strong smell of toasted/smoked banana, spice, a bit of peach, and nutty oils. Can sense the alcohol as well. Tastes of banana, buttered toast, a bit of cinnamon. A faint saucy barbeque/smokey taste as well, but that’s probably just me. Pretty well balanced, but feels a bit light for a belgian. Overall pretty good.

Deep gold pour, decent white head, not much lace. Malt, soft fruit, and alcohol on the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is vanilla, apricot and medium roasted malt. Finish is dry and a little boozy.

The aroma is slight chocolate or of vegetables. The appearance is a murky gold with a thin white head. The taste is slight and sweet after taste. Could have been better, but still overall nice.

22 Oz bottle pour at Brouwers. 2007 vintage. Pours a semi cloudy golden orange color with a sweet and spicy apple juice/cider aroma. Sweet and spice flavor as well, with a mellow malt, fruit, and a smooth finish. Awesome stuff.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours good with a off white head. Taste Belgian yeast, sweet, apricots. I thought this was ok. I would not drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber, frothy beige head cover, swirls of lace. Taste is slightly bittered caramel malt that moves through the palate without incident to a finish that continues the status quo for a long while. Strong, and some alcohol shows as the taste fades, but, still seems one-note. Doesn’t earn the 9% abv.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Banana nutty aroma with some candied sugar. Taste is malty and slightly sweet with some noticeable hops. Almost has a slight barley wine aspect to this strong Belgian golden. Full flavored and strong. Well done beer by avery, but a bit sweeter than I tend to like.
