3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
11.2oz bottle. Pours a pale slightly hazy gold with medium white head, fair lacing. Carbonation is a bit lively, but doesn’t have the creamy character of Orval. Aroma dominated by citrus hops, yeast, grass, and spices. Flavor matches well, but carbonation throws it off too much, almost has a soda pop carbonation that I do not find that pleasant. I will have to come back to this eventually out of the 750ml or draft.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden yellow with a white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma is slightly sweet with light fruit, some herbal hops and a hint of plastic. Taste is moderately bitter with some herbal and earthy hops, peach and pear nectar, Pilsner malt and slight plastic from the Belgian yeast. Finishes with some bitterness and a hint of the plastic taste. Mouthfeel is crisp with a light body and medium/high carbonation. A decent bitter but not very complex.
