3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, at home, drank in Chalice.
Pours straw. Slightly hazy. Close to no head, but white lace.
Aroma is mainly typical belgian yeast, with a little hop kick.
Taste is clean, and sortof hoppy. I say sortof, because the citrusy tones that were dominant in the aroma are nowhere to be found, and are replaced by somewhat non-characteristic hopping.
Good beer that could have been much better if the Nelson Sauvin was a little more upfront.

600ml bottle from LCBO. 6%alc./vol.Pours a clear deep golden colour with 1/2 finger of white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, pineapples, mango, mandarine, and grapefruits. Taste matches the aroma with some typical Belgian-yeasty flavours with a dry hoppy finish. Highly recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, shared with TylerDurden. Medium golden, lasting white head. Interesting interplay between the yeast esters and the hop aromatics creates a unique spicy/earthy/vegetal character, notes of crushed nettles, mint, capsicum. Strange but enjoyable.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Semi-filtered gold body with a decent white head, that disappears fairly quick. Weak nose, but what’s new for Beau’s. Belgian yeast on the tongue, with a spicy pepper in there as well. Something else, like grassy banana esters, but not quite, that I haven’t ever tasted before. Funky, but drinkable. Certainly not Beau’s best though.

600ml Bottle dated 8 weeks prior. Translucent golden orange with thin foam. Bread-yeast and orange peel aroma. Taste of yeasty apple cider and hint of spice, too much apple cider taste for me.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
biscuit malt and mild hop nose. A very thin white head on a rich gold and orange body. A well blended and refreshing Belgian pale ale. Spice, pepper, biscuit malt with cereal density, pilsnerish yeast, honey and a hint of kiwi and orange round out a complex and enjoyable taste profile. Taste sustains well but has a clean finish. Well done!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle. I really do wish they’d get rid of these. Fairly typical yeast-up-front Belgian. It becomes more interesting about half-way through, when the hops kick in, and it has a nice, relatively dry, finish.
