2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy unfiltered peachy hued bread under a thin, tight white head which leaves light traces of lace in its wake.
Freshly sliced peaches and apricots. Cereal grains along the sides. Fruity spices. Curacao orange peel. Grains of paradise. Herbs and grass.
Smooth mouthfeel, light and fruity, refreshing. Delicate notes of fresh apricot, peach, and kiwi. Spice is more subdued than in the nose – a shadowy partner. Tropical fruit skins bitterness in the back.
Subtle is the name of the game here – subtle but not boring. Personally, I would prefer more oomph in the flavors present. That’s really the only part of this beer that is lacking. Don’t get me wrong though; I’d drink another if offered.

Bottle from Pailhead. Nice light brown colored beer with haze and chunky floaties. Nice rocky white head which leaves good lacing. Nice light aroma of malt, spices and yeast. Light bodied, well carbonated. Somewhat spicey in flavor with yeast stuff going on in the background. Refreshing and light beer with discrete flavors and aroma.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark orange brown with a very persistent light brown head. . . Significant chunks rest in the bottom of my glass. Strong floral aroma with some juicy fruits like pears and grapes, along with some peppery spices, yeast and orange dough. Fairly bland flavour after a promising aroma. A slight mustiness, but that only gets me to the steps of the basement, where I don't go down. . . it just isn't that interesting, it the end it sort of feels like chewing on sweet grass.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber in color with a medium sized, light, fluffy head. The aroma is a strange combination of sweet citrus fruit, spices, floral and citric hops, honey, white grape, pear, bread, and a surprising bit of medicinal alcohol. Sort of short when it comes to flavor. The fruit that was in the nose seems only very light and hardly noticable. Decent malt for a summer beer. Not incredibly full, but with nice oatmeal cookie and honey wheat flavors. The finish has some spicy hops and dries out rather quickly. A refreshing summer beer, but not my favorite.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Said to be a lighter version of Chouffe, an idea with potential, I thought. But it struck me as overly sweet, overly herbed, and boozily hot despite the low abv. A car crash in the Ardennes. Leafy coriander and schnapps. Thanks but no.

Medium/light amber with a large off-white creamy uneven head. Fresh and crisp with a slight attic cobweb aroma. Taste is light, musty. Nothing really stands out. A good summer beer with food.
