11.2 oz. bottle at Flat Rock Saloon. Poured hazy gold with fizzy white head. Lightly fruity and yeasty flavor with a slightly piney, bitter finish. Thin and lacking adequate malty backbone. Surprised to see the low ABV.

Light golden in appearence. I bought it because of the picture and so far I am not impressed by the beer itself. Maybebecause I drank it out of a snifter instead of a tulip that affected just enough but I doubt it. Not worth buying again.

This was weird. Very hoppy for a Belgian, although the nose wasn’t as hop influenced. It wasn’t bad, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: The aroma is combination of citrus, lemon, floral notes, and yeast. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a moderate creamy white head with decent retention and spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of citrus, yeast, and faint lemon. The finish has lots of floral and herbal hops. Light-medium bodied with a soft carbonation.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from JoeinUccle. Thanks Joe. 33cl bottle. Poured into my orval goblet. Taras boulba is a cloudy, golden-yellow beer with a pillowy white head and great lacing throughout. Its really a pleasure to look at. I’m serious! :) I smelled citrus, lemon, and earthy hops along with a nice yeasty characteristic. Flavor is understated and awesome. Hops work so well in this beer. Its bitter at the right time. Its tart at the right time. Its sweet and yeasty at the right time. It all gels so well together. A really unique creation in the belgian beer world. I need more.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
How can one talk about this aroma? Intensely flowery and juicy, starchy, sharp. Astringently stringy. Totally cloudy/grey yellow/gold. Awesome. Thanks, Ryan, for picking this up. Hazy, unfiltered body. Slightly sour, sweet, very sourdough bready. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2008-03-05. Goldenish yellow body, head goes curiously unrecorded on paper (3+). Mild aroma pleasant hoppy character. Light Belgian yeast undertones. Flavour echoes the aroma, underlying Belgian character with the stereotypical notes of a an abbey blonde or tripel with a pleasant hoppy overcoat. Aftertaste of grassy hops lingers. (7+) Average plus palate. Nice.
