3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours blonde with very little head and a caramel aroma. There is a carbonated caramel malt flavor with some banana ester. There is an underlying essence that is distinct to this brewery - probably from the yeast.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s Beverage Depot: This poured a golden body with very lively carbonation and a sustained white head that left some spotty lace. The aroma had sweet pale malt, cherries, lemon rind, a touch of the floral, and a hint of alcohol. Very light, fluffy mouthfeel. The flavor pretty well reflected the sensations of the nose, adding a touch of soapy yeast and a mild orange pip bitterness. Very drinkable, dangerously hiding the strong alcohol content through most of the drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11.2oz. bottle sent by a pal.. returning from Belgian Beer Weekend. Seems a classic-triple. Bottle-conditioned, so pours a slightly oversized foamy white head. Malt/wheat aroma with a yeasty nose and some hop. Palate is simultenously warm and dry. Malt/Hop ratio present well-balanced flavor, leaning on corriander and yeast. Recommended! A very nice surprise. I’d buy it if I could find it.
