3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Swingbridge Beer and Wine. It pours a nice light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has bits of cereal and grain with a touch of yeast. The flavor is a bit sweet with notes of spice, yeast, grains of paradise, and a slight pithy bitterness. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A little heavy on the tongue. Not bad but not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a bottle at the Hopspitality Brewfest. Pours pale yellow with a thin head. The aroma is hay, lemons, and selzer water. The flavor is citrus sweetness. The palate is light, very carbonated, and a little acidic. Overall, this is a weak beer, which tastes closer to a pilsener than any Belgian style ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale golden color with a fluffy white head. LIttle to no lacing. Strong yeast aroma with bread, hay and some spices. Light carbonation and body, crisp and clean mouthfeel. Some sweet malts and flavors mostly follow fromt he aroma. A hint of pepper and mild citrus hops on the finish. Refreshing, easy drinking summer beer. If you enjoy yeast undertones, you could session this one.

Bottle. Aroma is nice, Belgian hints with citrus and malts. The taste is pretty balanced, with an easy Belgian taste...slight lemon taste and a good finish. Enjoyed this beer a good bit, will probably try some more while the weather still suits it! 6.0% alcohol.
