3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Blonde in colour, with a nice fluffy white head. Yeastie smell with not too much other aromas rising. The taste was fairly yeastie and also clovey and bananay. A typical wheat, but not the best representation i've had. A decent beer...good for a normal wheat, but this shouldn't be looked at as anything special. Sampled on tap at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York.

Fresh yeast and fruity strawberry aroma. Lightly cloudy and golden with a thin white head and some yeast sediment. Good candi sugar and malty sweetness hide the alcohol quite well. Nice complexity and bready flavor. Pretty good Belgian strong.

Poured a very pale cloudy orange with a frothy head. A fruity aroma with bubble gum and spices. The flavor is a touch spicy, clove with bubble gum/banana flavors and a touch of citrus. There is a nice warmth from the alcohol. A good carbonation and some bitterness with a drying finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
very aromatic, floral, and overall spicey smelling. Color is more of a clowded golden with considerable white foam the subsides nicely. Taste is marked by the final hint of alcohol. Otherwise clove is the most notable pleasentry from this beer. There is of course the rather standard feel from a belgian, but this strays from the path rather nicely.
