3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pretty standard-looking beer, medium amber, quite still, no head. The aroma and flavors are enticing to me, and this is one of the few new invented styles that I actually like. With a Belgian-y, alcohol-laden backdrop, even a bit of yeast, but then the little kiss of American hop, I like it. (#5862, 11/17/2014)

I bought this from the singles pile. Figured what’s to lose. $2 in this case. Not sure what the deal is with this. Not awful, but not something I’d ever buy again. This is the kind of Belgian beer you get from a chain pizza sort of place. I’ll finish my glass because I’m on a quest to get faded, but whatever. Not great, not terrible, not worthy.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
What is this!? No I am going to be harsh here because it does not blend the styles well. Yes you get a faint smell of hops, but this is a Belgian style beer, no bright hops taste or flowery finish of hops. But its not a good Belgian either. I won’t purchase again.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Ok as an IPA, not impressive at all as a Belgian ale. The characteristic belgian yeast flavors are muted and inconsistent.

Tasting notes from 6/21 Joplin Macadoodles Beerfest: Normally not a fan of blending IPAs with Belgian elements, but this wasn’t so bad, if you like malt. Certainly not much in the hops department.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy orange color with minimal head and lacing. Aroma is straight up grain and hop pellets. Taste has a little biscuit followed by hop pellets and an aggressive and sharp bitterness that borders on being astringent. Also get some musty and slight oxidized flavors. Finishes dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is thin with a medium carbonation. Flavors are sort of harsh and tastes like a mediocre home brew.

Drank out of the bottle at Flanerys in STL. I did not remotely enjoy this. Stinky and gross.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Weird. Poured from bottle at flannerys. Super bitter. Fruity musty and off taste. Not sure what I think - not very enjoyable. Bananna and citrus taste just too bitter

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very light Belgian yeast and biscuit malts. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit, hop resin notes, light fruit/bubble gum and a tart/bitter finish. Wasn’t expecting good based on the aroma, the flavor was better.

Had interesting hopes for this beer, but was slightly let down. Interesting aroma but weak palate, slightly watery, slightly sour bitters. Pass.
