3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Gingerman NYC. Pretty nicely done. Pours kind of hazy with a fluffy head. Sweet malty flavors balanced by a light hoppiness. I taste different spices and fruit that actually remind me of similar spices that go in a blanche or saison style beer, maybe it’s the coriander? Very Belgian tasting with the nice flavor of the sugars coming through.

hazy yellow, viscous appearance with thick frothy head and nice lacing. Standard belgian aroma. Touch of hay, light citrus, yeasty. Creamy mouthfeel and body. Fruity notes of sweet banana, yeasty. Grassy notes, with a sweeter, alcohol predominated finish. Nothing standout.

On tap at MacGregor’s in Henrietta. Yellow color with a nice head courtesy of the tap. Smells fruity and herby. Sweet, yeasty, dry finish. Not too impressed, but this was definitely not bad.

Cloudy golden in color with a large white head. Aroma of coriander,orange,citrus,banana and yeast. Flavor is consitant with aroma, alcohol is very warming. A double wit with a boost or perhaps a very spicy triple, either way very interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Atlantic City, NJ beer festival. Light chestnut pour under a small dusky white head. Yeasty aroma with roasted malt, molasses and overripe fruits. Solidly malty flavor with a nice mix of fruity sweetness and yeasty, bready notes along with some toffee and pepper. Silky mouthfeel and a warming finish. I would buy this every now and then if it were available in bottles.

Interesting - seemed like a belgian tripel. Pale yellow, citrus and wheat notes. Palate whallops you with a boozy taste like they really did fortify the beer with it. Since this was my last beer of the night I may be underrating it.
