3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
My buddy Nathan has recommended this to me more than once, but I simply hadn’t come across it in my visits to NYC until now. A good recommendation it turned out to be. My pour didn’t look too amazing (a slightly hazy light, bright gold with a tiny head), but the nose showed lemongrass, orange, tangerine, hay, and some well-integrated spices. Bright is the word that most quickly came to mind. Taste is zingy, with a crisp hop bitterness. Unique--like a great tripel without the alcohol. I want to wake up on a crisp, clear sunny fall day and start drinking this.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pour into a tulip, hazy yellow color, white frothy head. Aroma is traditional belgian spices, yeasty, banana, clove, wheat, coriander. Fairly standard. Flavor is lemon candy sweetness, candied sugar, belgian spices, hops, actually pretty nice flavor. A little less boring.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow color, naturally. Puffy white head.
Aroma is Belgian spices, with some melted plastic phenols.
The flavor is some more of that plastic, but it’s also lots more spiciness, like Grains of Paradise.
Feels prickly. It’s a very light beer, full of flavor, some of it a little iffy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear gold with a medium silky white head. Aroma has some tropical fruits and mild yeasty spice. Flavor follows suit and adds a nice grassy/citrusy bitterness...fairly balanced and no one flavor dominates. Mouthfeel is light / medium and lively with a dry spicy/minerally/earthy finish. Very nicely done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright golden color with a large creamy-soapy yellow-white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was coriander, lemon, cracker, tart, tangy, musty and yeasty with vague spices underneath. The flavor was tangy, tart and sour with lemon, pineapple, bread, must, vague spices and a strong yeasty presence. Long tart and tangy lemon and yeast finish. Medium body. Solid.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice large bright white head of fine bubbles. Reduces to a rocky topped foam head. Light and airy aroma with some fresh cut grass, lemons, cereal grains and some paper. Color is a light gold. Crisp lemony flavor with some straw, wheat, a bit of sickly sweetness that you might find in a golden dopplebock. Some pear and apples from the belgian yeast too. Light and crisp. Finishes a bit sweet. A decent belgian golden.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This ale poured a light cloudy yellow colour with next to no head. Not a good egg smell. High carbonation with flavours of hops, wieners, yeast and cloves. Thin mouthfeel. Finish is lightly bitter with that Belgian yeast flavour lingering.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle, courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Poured a hazy straw color with a 1/2" white head and minimal lace. Belgian yeast and light spice aroma. Hint of clove. Taste hints at Belgian funk with bread dough. Some grapefruit and lemon zest. Interesting mix. Light in the mouth with aggressive carbonation on the tongue.
