4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gift bottle from friend - he bought from Wine Warehouse in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a bright white puffy head that lingers. Lacing is scant but ornate. Aroma stinks (in a great way) of yeasty hoppy goodness. A touch of the funk, if you will.
Clear bubbly and golden - almost seems to give off light it is so bright.
The taste is not as bitter as I expected. Nothing to punch me in the mouth anyway. Definitely get that hop pop, but the grassy and citrus flavors really donít overpower this lovely drinkable ale.
Itís complex enough to be appreciated by beer lovers, but approachable enough to be an introductory beer for your new-to-real-beer friends and relatives. The finish is crispier than most goldens, but not so much as to make you make clicking sounds with your mouth after drinking.
Iíd buy this beer every time I see it and Iíd drink it that day - not sure itíll age well at all.

Bottle, Bier Circus, Brussels. Nice, super dry and hoppy Belgian ale with some fruity overtones. Low ABV makes it a good refreshing option.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma: Smelling of citric fruits, lime, grape, oranges and some alka-seltzer.
Appearance: The brew is hazy dark straw colored, a white stable head with lots of lacing.
Taste: The taste has a small sweet start, bread notes and then the bitter, oh so bitter hops. Extremely potent.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a bit coarse, very dry finish.
Overall: If youíre looking for hops, this is the right direction!

Hazy golden color with a large white head. Coarse bubbles quickly disappearing. Floral and fruity (elderberry) aromas. Pronounced bitterness. Dry bitter finish with a nice subtle fruity flavor. A bit too bitter for my taste but very well crafted.
