3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c from ericandersnavy! Pours hazy dirty gold with a fizzy/bubbly white head. Aromas of citrus, tropical fruit and yeast/spice. Med body. Flavor is definitely yeasty, and there’s some citrus fruit and light malt. I’m getting a hint of pineapple. No doubt about this being a Belgian. Finishes quite dry - almost astringent.

750 ml bottle thanks to Craig. Pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. A sweet funky oranges aroma. The flavor is basically a rich Belgian funky ale, some oranges, sweet and very dry. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, really hazy, thin white head, sudsy, spotty lacing.   Darker than most.   Very bready and yeasty nose.   Smells more like an American made Tripel than a Blonde.   Yeah, and it sure tastes like it too.   Very yeasty on the tongue, pale breadiness.   Smidgen of floral like aspects.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Feels a little flat on the tongue.   Finish is a little dank.   Lingering yeasty/bready notes.   Had you said this was an American made Tripel, I would have believed it.   Thanks Bill for the bottle!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Batch 4-25, bottled 5-26-10.
The beer was only filled up to the top of the label, something I didn’t notice until I got the beer home.
The beer pours a hazy brown-amber color with a white head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, dark fruit and alcohol. The flavor is a mix of caramel malt, yeast, brown sugar, alcohol, dark fruit and peaches, as well as some sherry, which I assume is from a little bit of oxidation. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
This beer is much more like a dubbel than a Belgian Blonde, but it is still a pretty tasty drink.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(750ml bottle batch 4-25 bottled 5-26) clear orange-golden with very few visible bubbles. Nose of funk, plastic, pear, candied oranges and diaper. Taste is salty, brine, lacks sweetness of almost any kind, spicy, very carbonated (despite it looking flat), with a dry finish and linger of candied oranges. The only Darkside I’ve been disappointed with thus far.
