2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a slightly hazy yellow with a thin white head that sticks around. Aromas of belgian yeast and grass. Taste is dominated with yeast and some funky herbs and not much else. Watery mouthfeel and the more I drink the more it tastes like stale crackers. Not a very good offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2012 Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 5/7/12
Aroma: The nose is mostly Beligan yeast and spice, with some grains, malts, and light fruit
Appearance: It pours a bright golden color with a thick, fluffy white head and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: The taste is mid-sweet, malty and yeasty, with a good amount of spice on the later palate
Palate: The body is light-medium, it is fairly creamy, with a soft-to-average carbonation, and a slightly dry finish
Randomly - This guy, who lives in NJ, and purchased these beers in Arkansas, is the only ones who’s rated 100% of BottleTree’s beers (all 2 of them). Anyway, on to non-completely random and irrelevant information. This one was pretty solid. After all that rambling, I don’t have too much more to add then that.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
May have been the location... May have been the food, but this was better than expected. Enjoyed a bottle at the Backyard Restaurant in Hilton Head, to go with the best shrimp & grits I’ve ever had. Gold color with nice carbonation. Taste was unique blend of flavors, a light sweet (almost wheat-like) malt and a very subtle hint of floral hops with a soft bitterness that balanced the whole thing very nicely. Not typically a Belgian fan, but this one was well worth the trip. I wish I could find it back home in Maryland. Very drinkable and flavorful as it warmed, too. This is easily one of those I could keep for regular drinking.
