3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy medium yellow,slight head,Ok maybe lower carb than normal.
Aroma is skunky,tart,lemon,grass.I guess I can say, clove as descibed as well.I kind of like it in an obnoxious skunky- blunt way.
Taste is like some wheat beers,with tartness. It has also the clove/mild bannanna/fruit thing also.Grassy,pepper(could just be clove).Tart grassy finish. Some grainyness and mild sweetness.Not bad really, would go better with food maybe,good drinkability with a nice bittering finish has some dry toast that drys the top of your mouth in finish also. Not my favorate style,but something I would get again but not soon for a blond ale. I was thinking this was german malt but guess not.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy yellow gold with just a little off white foam. A sugary aroma. A little fruit under it. More fruit and bitterness are tasted early. Yeast and earth. Oranges and zest. Some saison notes here with the fruit, yeast, and malts. Some esters with plenty of sugar. I would have liked this more with less sugar.

Slightly hazy blonde with ok, white head. Sharply fruity and tannic nose. Estery with some bubble gum and hay. Gummy bear and bubble gum fruit body with some farmhouse notes and lemon mixed in to create a rather odd medley.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear and bright yellow gold body with a large frothy white head that left lots of thin lacing. The nose is soft bready malt with a light hoppiness and a light yeastiness. The flavor is light and quite sessionable with just a touch of floral hop bitterness. Nice soft pale maltiness, a little light spiciness on the finish from the yeast. Light bodied and airy with soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty nice and easy drinking Belgian Ale with just enough flavor to keep it interesting.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy pale golden with a fairly decent eggshell head that settles to a thicker ring and leaves some clingy, soapy lace. Nose involves floral notes, honey, some dusty and lightly funky yeast, citrus and spice. Fairly sweet, fairly bitter, slightly tart. Lighter bodied, decent action, a touch oily, with a lengthy yeasty finish. A nice Belgian blonde, good balance among all the elements. The hoppiness is nice and refreshing. It’s not stunning, but it’s pretty good.
