3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Translucent yellow-gold in color with a solid sheet of off-white for the head. Aroma is honey, hops and carnations with a hint of vanilla and anise. Crisp and sweet at first touch. Honey really plays a matchmaker game here with the hops, but somehow the honey is going stag by the finish. Some resin/lemon traits and bread like crispness. Light and sleek, and not a bad starter beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden in color with a small, white head. Rather yeasty aroma, with coriander notes giving a pretty good Belgianesque first impression, a true surprise. Sweet, lightly malty flavor with more of that yeasty Belgian fruitiness. Moderately carbonated, with a grainy, lightly sour finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at brewpub-pours a nice blonde hue with minimal white head-aroma is sweet with some fruity notes-flavors are sweet, but not like honey. the honey adds a sweet malt element that goes along with the earthy hops in this one. another good brew from this brewery!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at the brewpub. Honey-blond, bit of head...honey, coriander and hints of berries in the nose. Slightly yeasty, very creamy and nicely malty, with a gasp of hops. Clean and refreshing.
