3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium bodied, pale copper color.. You can taste the spices in it and leaves a mellow taste on the palate. Overall, good beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: The pour is almost amber, maybe burnt orange, with a finger of khaki colored head.
S: Pretty typical Belgian aromas happening here. A lot of yeast contributions such as banana, bubblegum, and miscellaneous spice notes (most notably, pepper and coriander). As the beer warmed up a little bit, a lot of peach aroma started to come through.
T: Bubblegum, bananas, and peaches are all (again) very strong in terms of their presence. I get some decent spice character and quite a bit of malt, which is mostly toffee and bread flavors.
M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation.
D: My other favorite from the pilot beers. This one was really quite well done.

Thanks to Ryan for setting me up with a sample, on tap at Bootlegger’s in Fullerton, CA.
Not as pale in color as I would have expected, very middle of the road in flavor.
