On tap at blue monk captain Lawrence beer dinner. Clear and clean gold pour with a small white head. Smells sweet, a little floral, a bit of yeast. Tastes sweet up front, good yeast, coriander is there. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Brass Rail, Hoboken. Sadly, poured into a shaker pint.
Clear golden pour with a fine bright white head. Good lacing.
Aroma is estery (clove). Much of the aroma was masked by the cold temperature of the pour.
Taste is cloves, juicy fruit gum, and a little banana. Biscuit malt. Light hop character.
Mouthfeel is a little slick. Nice carbonation.
Interesting ale. I wish that Brass Rail would work on not serving everything at lager temperatures. They have a nice craft selection that is hampered by cold temperature pours and crappy glassware.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours like the name suggests. Liquid gold with a very quickly dispersed thin head. The slight clove, banana scent is well balanced by subtle fruity citrus of the hops. On the tongue it feels slightly silky and well carbonated. I detect just a hint of gingerbread. Over all I thoroughly enjoyed it

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy yellow with a small head of foam the fell fast and left a thin ring. Starts with some soapy lace but that disappears. Nose is plenty of yeast, banana, clove, pepper, bubblegum, hay and lemon. A nice touch of lemon all around and all over in fact. I really like this. Malt is caramel and bread. Taste is sweet malt with lots of dough and caramel and hops follow the nose all the way. Bubblegum, floral, banana, sweetly juicy with orange and lemon citrus that isnít sour or tart, and a little pepper to take it into a sweet finish . No real aftertaste, very light body, almost thin with a little carbonation to gently remind you this is beer. Pretty nice.

Sample at brewery. Pours golden with a thin white head. Not much on the nose. A lot of Belgian yeastiness on the tongue that fades a bit as you drink it. Finish lingers a bit. I donít like the last swallow of this as much as I liked the first one.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a thin, one centimetre tall just off-white head and bunches of bubbles rising from the bottom and sides of the glass. Aroma of a belgian yeast strain, some wheat, herbs, alcohol and a hint of light sugars. Medium-bodied; Nice robust wheatie and yeastie flavours with some coriander seed, curacao, nutmeg, earth, grass, hay and light hops noticeable. Aftertaste shows mostly the yeast and wheat notes with a bit of the grassy and herbal flavours. Overall, a decent belgie with more of a focus on the lighter side of things such as the herbalness and a little spice note. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 24-February-2013 for US$1.34 sampled at home in Washington on 02-April-2013.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(From Notes) On tap from rattle and Hum NY. not sure what to think of this one. A slightly cloudy light yellow color. Absolutely no head whatsoever, may have been pour, not sure. Very active carbonation though. Very slight smell of hops. Thick consistency to taste, almost syruplike. Malty sweet with a little hops bitterness in the finish. Not terrible, but not my favorite either.

Pours a slightly hazy light yellow with a big frothy head. Aromas of banana esters, slight bubblegum, and light orange zest. Flavors of light banana esters, spicy coriander, light lemon zest, and a light herbal hint in the finish. Medium to light sweetness, light spiciness, lightly dry, and leaves just a hint of an herbal/spicy finish.
