2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can: deep gold, nearly amber body with some banana-yellow highlights around the edges. Big, soapy, frothy, stark-white cap that lasts for a while & leaves some lacing behind. Sediment floats in the brew. Aroma smells like a mix of Belgian tripel & American pale lager. Notes of clove, fruity esters, Candi sugar, musky hops, bubblegum, murky leaves, heavy grain, & even a bit of wheat. Taste is just as confusing with lightly sugar coated banana esters, & mild wheat notes with a staunch, hoppy bitterness that engulfs the palate; musky, dry hops, light astringency. Slightly fusel alcohol notes with more banana in he finish. Confusing brew, not the best thing I’ve had. Not much coherence happening, unfortunately.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned: unk - earlier
Nice hazy honey colored ale with a solid sheet of fine whites atop. Smells like grain, sweet grain, pears, flowers, some grass and a little biscuit. Smells fresh, I dig that. Flavor is sweet initially with a good floral character with some juicy fruit, some grain and dough. Like the flavor too. A little fuller bodied than I’d dig, but with the softened carbonation, it has a nice feel overall and an unobtrusive finish. Nice beer, surprised and satisfied.

Tasted this at Beer World in DC while visiting, wanted to try a local brew and glad I did. Good amber color with a nice haze, frothy head and high carbonation. Smooth on the back end.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: 12 oz. can Total Wine Sterling. It pours a hazy orange color with a fleeting off white head. The nose has notes of pineapple, yeast, and other tropical fruit. The flavors make a bit of an unusual combination on the tongue with the tropical overpowering the Belgian notes. A little flabby on the tongue. Kind of meh for me.
