3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a lightly hazy yellow color ale with a large white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of light fruity ester with lightly sweet Belgian style-malt notes. Taste is a shy mix of lightly fruity ester with some semi-sweet Belgian malt notes. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Lacking some complexity to compete with the staple of the style.
