On tap at Taphouse. Served at fridge temperature into footed snifter reveals a hazy light golden body one finger white head that recedes somewhat, leaving film and lace. Aroma has notes of belgian yeast, baguette, pepper, and a hint of bubblegum. Oily texture, medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a lingering bitter finish.flavour is dry, with a moderate bitterness. I can’t say that i would want to be stuck on a deserted island with this as my only beer.

Night_Cap (18) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - JAN 26, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2016 Bottle 330ml. Served at cellar temperature. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a dense, foamy white head that lasts wonderfully. Aroma is bready with orange citrus, dried pineapple, coriander, clove and notes of floral/grassy hops. Flavour is a light floral/grassy hop bitterness with coriander, white pepper, bready notes, orange peel, pear, a touch of straw and a dry finish. Light to medium bodied, with a creamy mouthfeel and high carbonation. Amazingly complex considering the ‘low’ ABV! Would make for an amazing session beer!

JStax (4292) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 17, 2016
11.2 ounce bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a fairly clear gold color with a white head of foam. The aroma has yeasty, estery characteristics to it that lean toward the banana and pineapple notes. The taste is moderately sweet and estery. Medium body and higher to medium carbonation. Pretty good.

Diabobale (367) - Vallata, SUD ITALIA, ITALY - JAN 17, 2016
Colore dorato carico, opalescente, e schiuma bianca, fine, pannosa e dalla lunga persistenza per questa belgian ale. Al naso sentori erbacei e floreali, con un pizzico di speziato, tipico del lievito, con un fine aroma di miele. In bocca arriva ben carbonata, con bollicine finissime, con un corpo sopra la media. Al palato note di crosta di pane, miele, e con amaro erbaceo finale nella media.

jamaty (1614) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 15, 2016
Dorada nebulosa, no mucha espuma, deja película. Burbuja fina. Delicado aroma, vainilla, herbal. En boca presenta gas excesivo, y cuerpo moderado. Sabor de levaduras belgas, y lúpulos especiados y herbales. El gas estropea el conjunto.
