3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice golden color. A delicate light fruity aroma, very inviting. As is the taste, dry complex. Fruity, malt character and spicy hops. Finishes clean and refreshing. Has almost a champagne factor to it, so it fit very well on New Years eve.

Small bottle. Pale golden, medium quick dissipating head. Sweet yeasty orangepeel nose, pungent pininess in the mouth, full but quick finish. Good, but nothing special.

Not too much hop nose, mostly spice. Dry flavor with more of a belgian spicy taste to it. Nice golden color. Not bad, not great.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy yellow, large, sturdy white head. Initial aroma is citrus and some woodsy mustiness, and this is afairly apt description on the flavor as well. Add in some peppery bitterness and slight graininess to the finish. I also think that "donk" is my favorite syllable in a beer name, and If I ever own a donkey, I'm gonna name him "Corsen".

Bottle. Dirty pale colour with an upside down drizzle and soft foam on top. I can't think of any reason why anyone thinks that it looks attractive. But each to their own. Smells like a wheat beer. I suspect there is wheat in here somewhere, which would account for the big head and long head retention. Initial crispness is quickly over taken by a sweet stickiness then by the alcohol. Some wheat beer spice in the finish. Belgian yeast evident throughout. Despite all my grumbling I enjoyed this brew. Finished it quite quickly as well.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I get a very different kind of buzz from this beer. Like getting high? Whatever it does, it's great. Has a great palate and very abnormal but mouth-watering aroma.

Gotta love those Belgian hops and yeast. Nice mild hoppy aroma. Vanilla and floral tastes. Beautiful cloudy golden color.
