3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at Poatersgat. Clear gold in colour with strong carbonation. Aromas are of pale malts, honey, mild earthy hops and a touch of spicy yeast. Pale malts are strong on the palate initially, but things dry out very quickly, leaving notes of mineral, and earthy cooking spices. Not bad at all overall.

This is a particle filled deep golden color with a white cloud type head. You will find yeast, buttered bread, and a tinge of alcohol. On taste, this is a refreshing belgium that has notes of much the same with a more forward presence on the tongue. The finish reminds me of a buttered chardonnay wine.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2011 Re-Rate at Bluebird. Vastly better this time. Lots of citrus and soft Belgian esters. Much more fresh and robust. Pops with hoppy character. Big upgrade.
Bottle sampled at Glunz Expo. Pours a cloudy yellow-brown. Nose is restrained, pils malt and slightly phenolic. On taste, pretty bland. I’m having a hard time pulling anything particularly distinctive out. Lack character. Meh.
