3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a one finger frothy off-white head that had excellent retention. The nose is light and fruity with a prominent yeast profile and some light floral hoppiness. The flavor is rather light and airy as well, the hops and the yeast battle each other for prominence. The hops win out, but not by much. Pale doughy malt base with a hint of light caramel. Overall, this is driven by the hops, but the yeast is just as interesting to me. Lighter bodied with fizzy frothy carbonation. Pretty nice sessionable Belgian Ale.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy pour, smell has some grapefruit, citrusy, zesty, some gassy hops, sweetness, yeast spice. Flavor has a nice up front bitterness, very herbal, some interesting yeast phenols. Weird water characteristic. It is good easy drinker but some weird off flavors exist. Very sharp and crisp mouthfeel.
