4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 27, 2013 Bottle pours an opaque peach-gold with a thick white head. Good retention, nice lacing. Sweet, floral aroma with notes of honey and citrus. Taste is complex and well-developed. Sugar up front, a bit of orange, black pepper, and a thick malty finish with all the characteristic sweetness of Belgian yeast. Very smooth. Delicious take on a Belgian golden ale.

Lemongrass yeasty aroma and flavor. Slight sweet, but a bitter dry finish with some slight spice. Not bad.

Tap. Pours light yellow with white head. Smells yeast, not too much aroma. Has a very smooth, sweet taste. Slightly citrusy, really smooth and easy to drink. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 237 out of 400. Lots of trub in the bottle... Opens up to a slow and continuous gusher... Pours a heavily cloudy yellow with a nice creamy white head with good retention and fair lacing. Nose is loaded with honey and phenols. Taste is sweet but not cloying with spicy flavors mixed with some nice honey characteristics. Fruity, overripe yellow plums or something like that. Body is medium+ and carbonation somehow under control despite the never ending gusher. Not bad but not something worth seeking out again.

Taste is musty, doughy, lightly citric, white pepper, clove, banana, orange peel, biscuity, and waxy with a lightly spicy finish. Melding body with soft carbonation. Damn tasty Belgian ... I need to pick some bottles up of this stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 223. Pours a highly turbid, orange yellow with four fingers of fine white head. Bottle is a gusher. Great retention and lots of lacing. Aroma is fruity, sweet, honey, floral. Flavor is fruity, peaches, candy, honey, with a caramel, malty, mildly boozy finish. Alcohol masking is impressive, though not quite as good as i remember. Very fruity and semi-sweet throughout. Soft carbonation, medium body, and very smooth texture. An excellent local brew.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2015 bottle-conditioned 22oz. soft hazed gold with a fine-bubbled lasting head. a first dose of citrus oil, dish soap and perfume is followed by some mildly crystalline sugar aromas and a developing lime / salt / white pepper phenolic quality. effervescent and lively carbonation; peppery and sweet; a lot of banana and gum; strongly bitter but works in good balance with the sweetness and acidity. quite nice, a surprising beer showing promise for this brewer.
Rerate 2015 batch: unpleasant over-caramelized crystal malt, heavy banana ester profile, sugary sweet and slick. Very un-Belgian. Sad to say I think BRU has lost their magic :(
