2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A little to light for my taste. Had a bit of tin flavor to it. Almost more pils than Belgian.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Batch #1. Pours with a cloudy yellow body topped by a medium thick to thick head with a good amount of lacing. It’s slightly sweet and full of coriander and ginger with a nice bitterness. Light to medium bodied, tingly and dry.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the Toronado SD. Pours with a a hazed pale yellow body and a small white head. Aroma of oak, hay, dough, lemon peel, apricot and spices. Taste is sweet with a nice grainy profile, dry fruits and light wood tannins. Somewhat of a witbier spice presence. Lively carbonation and a dry mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very pleasant Belgian ale. Fairly light in color, but a very full complex flavor profile. Interesting spicy aroma with the assumed Belgian yeasty notes in the beer.
Sampled at 2009 LA Craft Beer Fest.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured into one of the Blind Lady’s special .5l glasses.
Deep golden body with a tan haze. Foamy white head sits around forever.
Smells of coriander covered in coriander with a side of coriander.
Taste is spicy, a little biscuit, and then the coriander comes in a dominates, just when you think you are going to be sick from the coriander, the ginger comes in and settles your stomach.
It’s not a delicate Belgian Single, the flavors are big and bold, making me wish it was a little more subdued, but I dont think thats what they were aiming for with this beer.
If you like your belgian pales to have a ton of spice and lighter on the citrus, this one will work.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Blind Lady. Pours a mostly clear Glowing yellow with a fluffy white head. Nose was big on coriander and ginger. Flavor was also big on coriander and ginger. This seemed more like coriander with beer added to me, could have done with a sample and not a pint.

Light yellow with a fluffy white. Citrus and corriander aroma and taste with a good bready taste and a very crisp finish. A damn good witbier.

On tap at Blind Lady. Pours a hazy gold with a white head. Sweet and spicy aroma, of citrus and coriander. Taste starts sweet then gets more spicy, with citrus, malt, yeast, and a lot of ginger at the end. Lingering spice. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Blind Lady. Beautiful lacy head with a nice hearty, cloudy gold color. Smells like it should, ginger, corriander, with some mellow wood. Taste the ginger, corriander, oak, some clove or cinnimon. Great body, refreshing but not boring. Great first effort. Looking forward to more!

tap at blind lady, pretty cool looking color, blond and cloudy, reminded me of lil or horney devil because of the corriander, didn’t notice the ginger much. was well made and nice transitions. not a big brew and built for their food it seemed. plus they have their own blind lady glasses that are awesome.
