4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy gold with an enthusiastic head, great persistence and spotty lacing. Nose is fruity yeast and sweet malt, with just a hint of funk. Taste starts out sweet, with light tropical fruit, pear or apple, and a hint of funk, finishing dry with slight pepper and grassy hops. Medium bodied, with active sustained prickly carbonation, lingering light hoppy bitterness, and just the slightest warming.
Very nice. Very dangerous. This does not feel like a 9% ABV. A stonking good Belgian with lots of body and a smooth, pleasant flavour. Not sure it’s worth the $13 a bottle it ran me, which is the only reason I’ve marked it down a little on the overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1pint 9.4 fl oz bottle bought in Manhattan. Sorry ... Pours out pale golden, fine white head. Malt and unknown fruity on the nose. Starts alcoholic malty, yeasty, dry fruity background. High carbonated. Heavy stuff. Nothing to drink fast. Almonds, marzipan and alcoholic in the aftertaste.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The pour produced an average sized (two finger thick) head with a creamy off white color. The head slowly fades down to small ring of slick lace. Underneath the head is a light golden honey colored liquid with a hazy appearance and streams of tiny bubbles rushing to the surface. The aroma is full of fruity, estery yeast, sweet malts and some light, funky phenolic notes. The flavor up front it has candy like sweetness with light tropical fruit notes, some pear, apple, and light malt as well as some funky phenolic notes. In the middle it starts to dry a little and we add some mild warming alcohol and mild spicy/leafy hops to its malty character. It finishes much dryer than it started but still with some residual sweetness mixed into mild hop notes. The palate is full and lively with plenty of carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Trembling Madness, York. Pours golden with a white head. Stoarts off pretty sweet with grass and yeasty notes. A much more bitter finish. Quite spicy too. The alcohol is fairly noticeable. Ultimately I found this a bit lacking in body. Nice but not amazing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An OK offering and a little under-impressed. Malty and sweet aroma with a hint of Belgian yeast. Dark golden color that appeared effervescent. Medium weight and crisp palate. It had smoothness. Nice blend of flavors that ranged from caramel malt, slight hop bitterness and spice from the yeast. It had a slight boozy presence as well and seemed to be a blend between a Belgian strong and a tripel. Nice but they have better.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
After the cork almost took off my head, the beer pours a hazy yellow with a foamy white head. Has a citrus, wheat, yeast, and spice aroma. Aroma is more subtle, with citrus, spice, and a touch of bitterness. Has a full body feel and goes down smooth. Pretty enjoyable.
