Lots of sediment in this gold beer. Tons of yeast in the flavor and aroma, Belgian yeast. Sweet, typical for the style. Well carbonated. Some coriander and spice. Very much like a tripel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Received 22-oz bomber from scrizzz via trade (bottle 77 of 480). Pours a clear golden pale colored brew containing particles, and a fast dissolving off-white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, a hint of cloves, bubble gum, and a touch of honeydew. Taste is medium bodied, a little spicy with flavors of Belgian yeast, bubble gum, yeast and some golden grain malt. Finish is semi-tart, mild bitter that quickly disappears and some lingering yeast aftertaste.

A decent offering, well worth the money and i’d definitely get it again. Just didn’t knock my socks off. I was a little tanked when this got poured, overcarbonated, weird, i drank a few sips then left for a burrito.

Pours a lightly hazed golden orange with a creamy off white head that left behind some great lacing. Light spice, citrus and grassy hops in the nose. Off dry on the palate with citrus and spice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy pale orange with a small ivory head.
The smell is of light malts, bananas, bubblegum, yeast, grass and mild spices. Clean and tidy character.
The flavor is spot on for what I have come to know as American interpretations of Belgian strong pale ales. It’s fairly sweet and yeasty with notes of bubblegum and spices, with notes of grass. Very clean flavors and it lacks the edginess one finds in many of the Belgian originals. The finish is mild with faint phenolic alcohol, malts and yeast.
Medium body, mild carbonation.
A decent take on a Belgian ale.
