3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught glass at the brewpub, RBSG Minneapolis pub crawl, June 22 2007. Cloudy, bright gold-amber body with a small lasting white head, bit of lace....aroma of pears, lots of sweet and funky Belgian yeast, light earthy English hops; doesn’t meld perfectly but stays interesting....quite hoppy on the tongue, full-bodied, fairly juicy and fruity, lightly tart and a bit dry to finish.... to me it seemed more Belgian than English, but just barely so....a fascinating, reasonably successful experiment.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours hazy light orange to yellow with a white head. Fruity spicy aroma. Flavour is slight chemical and going into a mild bubblegum sensation. Mild bitter finish. Yeasty bubblegum flavoured beers I really don’t get, well brewed, but I just don’t like it.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
RBSG 07weekendl. Pours a nice hazy golden with a fluffy lasting white head- and decent carbonation (when I came back the following day for the pub crawl , this beer seemed to have less carbonation). Aroma is spicy yet clean belgian ale yeast- tons of herbal an dgrassy hops- hoppy saison-like. Very hoppy flavor with some spicy phenols, grass, herbal and flowery with a nice tacky almost harsh bitterness which I loved. Smooth body and mouthfeel.

RBSG 2007 at Barley John’s. The beer is a hazy pale straw colored body with a creamy white head. The aroma is fruity yeasty Belgian ale mixed with an English hop. The flavor is fruity with light oranges and hay with Belgian yeasts. Drying palate with a nice bitterness and texture.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the better beers from BJ’s. It has a light Belgian yeast aroma that includes hops. Flavor is quite dry, lightly spiced. Cloudy yellow with a nice head. More of a saison than a Belgian ale.
