3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a glow of honey and a very thin, faint off-white head. Aroma of yeast, light grass and honey, some caster sugar and a bit of very light spices - fairly mild. Full-bodied; Rich honey flavour with a lot of yeast and bananas and a nice malty bite from wheat and flowers. Aftertaste shows a very polished yeast strain along with some nice sugars from fruit and honey and a subdued but noticeable grass and herb bite. Overall, a nice beer that doesn’t look so great nor smell amazing, but the taste is very elegant and reminiscent of a true belgie with a smooth finish showing relatively good complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virginia on 28-April-2015 for US$3,69 sampled at home in Washington just a few steps away on 25-August-2015.

Bottle. The look is clear, white head, and golden in color. The smell is fruity, sweet, honey, wine, mead, and good. The taste is smoother but lighter not as sweet. Ok. Nothing special.
