3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slightly hazy straw yellow color with small white head. Yay!!! A beer that doesn’t look like poop for once tonight, and one that actually has a little bit of a head on it. Two firsts in one pour. Fruity and floral aroma with all the typical belgian esters, but also a touch of lemon and potpourri. Taste is slightly grainy, slight nutmeg/clove and cinnamon. Meh. Just nothing that makes this beer interesting. It reminds me of every generic belgian ale with nothing that makes me want to drink this again. I’d take a duvel over it every day that ends in "day".

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours a clouded, milky yellow body with a modestly-sized, fizzly white head.
Smell: Aroma of lightly grainy malts and sugary cereals. Slim notes of lemon zest, meadow flowers, spice, and white peaches, which attaches to a waft of alcohol giving a little sniff of schnapps.
Taste: Light pale maltiness, perhaps a bit of pils in the mix, with a moderate sweetness to it. A sousing with water, then a slip of alcohol. Fruitiness of white peaches and soft lemon. Only a slight bitterness is felt. vague peppery spiciness. A bit of enduring sweetness for the lightly acidic, lightly warming finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A beer that never really grabbed me, instead one I just got through, like paying bills or doing the laundry. I found it to be less than appealing and pretty forgettable. You might like it though!
