3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can to taster (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks solid; a cloudy orange with white lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast, dough, and hops. Tastes of Belgian yeast, hops, and citrus with a nice mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz can, unknown date. Served at around 40-45F.
Pours slightly hazy golden amber with a one finger white head that leaves a ring of lacing and settles to a small cap.
Aroma is belgian yeast, fruity, lemon, banana, touch of bubblegum, earthy, bready. Good to very good strength.
Flavor is fairly hoppy with lemon citrus, a little banana, overall rather fruity, some yeast and bread, sweet malt in the middle and end, mild alcohol, good bitterness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little sticky, good carbonation.
Normally not a big Belgian Pale Ale fan, but this is pretty good! Nice ’n hoppy with a good Belgian yeast presence.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I had thought I already rated this one, probably let the can sit around too long...not one to be aged. Unfiltered orange-tan. Creamy, lacy white head. Kind of bitter resinous oily aged hop aroma. Sweet and sugary, not really capturing the essence of any style well. A yeasty tripel-saison-blonde? Not bad, just not that desirable either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into snifter glass. Golden color with reddish hue and white head. Aroma of Belgian yeast [bannana/citrus fruit, spices (clove, some pepper)]. Taste is the aroma, bready with some earthy hops to balance the sweetness. Medium body, creamy and smooth. Interesting brew, not my fav from DC Brau but not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can courtesy of Queenholly. Thanks much for the D.C. brew. A nice hazy gold with a thin ring of head in a Trappist glass. Aroma is fruity with yeast and some spicy notes. The flavor is pretty nice. The flavor has small amounts of yeast. Light Belgian spice with light citrus hop bitterness. Lighter in body and easy enough to drink.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Somewhat pale amber with a huge white head that eventually fades to naught. Belgian yeast, overly sweet malt, bready, melon, banana. Mild carbonation, sweet body, becomes dry, leaves a yeast and fruit taste on the palate with a bit of chalk.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thanks to mar for giving me this can. This is my first beer from Washington, D.C.
Pours a hazy yellow-orange with a large white head. Aroma has a lot of Belgian character, with some yeast, pepper and orange citrus. The flavor is quite different. I get a lot of bread and biscuit malt, with some grass and earth thrown in. There is a little yeast character, as well as some pepper and a bit of coriander. There is not much citrus in the flavor, which is disappointing. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
