3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at GABF 2013. Poured a clear light amber with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt with some burnt toffee. The flavour is weak apple acid with a watery citrus palate. Served cool and very refreshing despite the lack of flavour.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma was subdued golden yeast, wheat, and floral. Pours golden with a small head but good carbonation. Taste is bizarre and tame at the same time. Straw notes, yeast, and some floral notes seem to be clashing with a harsh hop taste. Ends up being more earthy than yeasty sweet. Wasn’t a fan.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Daily Growler. The beer is a clear golden color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of yeast, herbal hops and mildly tart fruit. The finish is fruity with an earthy yeast aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nose of light belgian yeast bubble gum a little sulfur, pear, grain. Pouirs golden, hazy with a thin head. Flavors of light gum and clove, pepper, grain, a little pear or apple sweetness. Fairly nondescript, a little flabby in the carb department. Not my favorite example.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster on tap at Neons. Clear golden orange color. Thin white head. Few ropes of lace. Bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft lighter carbonation. More dry texture. Some light banana. Moderate spice. Some citrus. Zesty sweet taste, spice, light hint of alcohol. Alright belgian blond, not getting the wow that I expect from Bear Republic, though. Soft, citrusy spicy with some belgian yeast in the body, but besides that, whatever. Solid, west-coasty, but not remarkable.
