3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange pour big head. Aroma peppery funk. Taste is spicy rye grains meet banana belgian yeast. Aroma hops flavor slight bitter. Slight sticky yet watery palate. Lighter carb. More sessionable than most belgians due to pilsner characteristics/less yeastiness. Well balanced. The rye and saison funk flavor keeps me coming back.

2.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
14K gold in color with a modest yet lasting head. Light in aroma although I do detect some dusty green herbs entwined with the caramel. Medium nectar with good carbonation. Decent flavor, mostly rich caramel with nice bittering on the finish. Very drinkable in this hot weather.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle, from Jungle Jim’s in Eastgate. Almost entirely hazy orange color. Thin, kind of bubbly off-white head. Few bits of lace. Kind of crisp carbonation. Medium body. Orange, citrusy, kind of lightly hoppy flavor. Light spice. Moderate bitter taste, above average for the style, light on the sweet. Light zesty. Just a light bit of spicy bite. Definitely a more assertive, hoppy blonde. Finishes dry. Not much belgian yeast character to this, drinks more like an American golden ale. Better than expected, though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours with a clear copper body and gold hues while supporting a thin light tan head. The modest aroma has some apricot and apple yeasty esters to start and then slides into mellow and mild citrus hop notes. The taste delivers fruity esters o-plenty with apple and pear and apricot. To midway mild malt sweetened citrus hops comes to the surface as well as a bit of a malty graininess. Interesting brew with just enough hops going on to keep it from being too sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle in a tumbler. Pours amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of pale malts with light spices and light hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not the best.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours a cloudy gold with a thin white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is a quite pleasant blend of spice. The mouthfeel is surprisingly kind of thick but the flavor is good. It’s a decent Belgian and certainly is a step up from your Blue Moon’s.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pleasantly surprised by this one. I’ve passed it up many times before, but I’m glad I finally gave it a go. It pours an attractive clear gold color with an off white head. The aroma has some fresh grainy malt with mild hints of earthy and noble hops. Light lemon and wheat. The flavor is full bodied for the style with dry pilsner maltiness. A little more wheat as well. Clean and tasty. I’ll be rotating this into my summer heat lineup!

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; Color: Pale Amber. Aroma: Acutally smells a bit like throw up (just saying). Flavor: Definitely tastes better than it smells. Elements of tropical fruit, varied spices and herbs. Has a lovey sweet and almost vanilla finish. Not bad.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; poured a dull copper/gold color. Aroma of toasted bread, wheat, with some earthiness and herbs. Flavor was rather boring, but did get a bit better with a few tastes. Some bubblegum with toast and wheat. Not all that sweet, and probably more dry. Yeasty, but really not all that flavorful.

A refreshing, but boring blond. Pours a clear orange. Smell is great, tropical fruit. Taste is clean and crisp, but not very interesting. Forgettable. Had at tap at the Bay Area Craft Beer Festival
