3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange beer with a thin white head that stays around the rim. Aromas of peaches, apricots and other light fruits. Flavor is the same light fruits and some decent carbonation but it doesn’t pack the punch I remember. Even with saying that, the first time I had this was when I was 21, so my palate has changed immensely since then, but this is still an exceptional brew. They call it a Belgian strong but it seems to more of just an American strong. Nothing wrong with that though, you know good stuff when you drink it.

This pours a semi-cloudy golden yellow color with a slight off-white head containing floaties. The aroma is inviting with a mixture of banana and yeast. The taste is smooth with citrus and bready tones. The characteristics are very true to the Belgian style. This is interesting, well made, and easy to drink.

Cotton off white 1/2" head, good lacing. Hazy medium to light amber. Aroma mild spice and fruit. Well balanced moderate creamy and caramel sweetness and bitter with spicy notes. Creamy mouthfeel with some bite on tongue, very warm finish. This wonderful and complex beer elevated my spirit on the first gulp!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours rich gold with a slight white head that leaves spiderweb lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, bread, some nuttiness, alcohol, and barnyard character. Well balanced flavor, very fruity and sweet with a nice touch of bitterness. This beer packs a punch at 9% abv yet is very smooth and quaffable. Well done and accurate to the style. Medium body, slick and soft texture, average carbonation, and sweet, long finish.

Sampler at Avery’s. Appearance: large white head, excellent lacing, yellow. Aroma: bread, Brett, floral, light vinegar. Palate: light body, sparkling texture, lively carbonation. Taste: heavy sweetness and light tartness. Overall, not the most unique beer, but very sturdy for the style and worth having every so often.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle. I have had this beer multiple times, I am surprised that this is the first I have rated it. Caramel, estery/fruity, oxidized cardboard notes, slight mango. There is a sweet maltiness with a dry finish.

Avery very rarely disappoints, it hasn't happened to me. This is a fruity, well balanced golden ale with a pleasant palate. Very much worth trying.
