3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16oz can from rayl101. Pours a clear copper color with off-white head and nice carbonation. Some lacing is left behind as the head falls. Aroma is carmel, some citrus, wood. Taste follow suit, but is not overly bitter. Its a bit thin which detracts from the beer although it does make it go down easily. Missing something.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Amber-gold with nice, foamy, off-white head, decent legs / Sweet, steely, floral nose of spun sugar, violet, banana, resin, citrus / Medium body, soft carbonation, mildly sweet & syrupy, surprisingly dry and hoppy, lightly astringent, and big bitter finish / Stylish, dry flavors of straw, honey, spun sugar, violet, with only notes of banana and citrus / One of those rare cases where the nose doesn’t match the body or flavor, but this dry, pilsner-like Belgian is well suited for the summer.

16oz can from the Deli Lama in Lake Villa. Pours an orangey copper with a white head. Some streaks of lace. Aroma has spices and pine and plastic. Maybe citrus. Taste is of tangy spicy yeast, pine and resin. Some malt chasing way underneath. Light to medium bodied. Some alcohol. Finishes long and tangy sweet with a bitter undercurrent. Interesting. Too many guns in the wrong direction -- in the belgian-y line opposed to the ipa-ish line.

Rich amber color and solid body. Hops in aroma and taste, off set by some Belgian yeast spice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Looking forward to trying some stuff from this brewery! A medium off-white head pours out of the can on top of a copper body. Light scattered lacing left on the glass after each sip. The aroma is citrusy, with wild floral notes; definitely pick up the Belgian yeast. Some pine is burried in the scent as well. The flavors mostly follow that; less citrusy perhaps, and more of a resinous/pine hop flavor combining with the Belgian yeast element. It’s more IPA than Belgian Ale, the yeast just adds a different element without getting in the way, which I like. It has firm bitterness but nothing over the top; nice and dry in the finish. The body is a shade light; at least moreso than expected, but I’d hardly categorize it as thin. I like this. Sometimes the flavors can clash in these Belgian IPAs but this one works quite well.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice dark cooper colored orange with a nice head. Nose is citrus with a predominance of freshly squeezed orange. Taste is fruity with some yeasty notes. Finish is semi dry, clean and ends on the same fruity notes. Not a Belgian fan, but this was a single game changer. Quaff Score 8 / 10

16oz can shared. Poured s medium orange with off white head. Mild aroma of Belgian yeast and malt and hops. Nothing offensive just kind of generic in nature. The flavor was of mild Belgian style and mild hops like it is almost afraid to jump out the can. Could have been a whole lot better. But just average instead.
