3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Pours yellow with a white head. Little lacing. Aroma of lemon and yeast. Taste has some sour characteristics, but it isn’t really sour. Lemon and fruit, some spice. Alcohol well-hidden. This is the third time I’ve had it. It’s interesting, but not my beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I get the typical belgian sweetness with the belgian yeast from this crystal clear yellow brew with a head of big white bubbles and seeming gread carb as i watch the bubbles rise. I get a almost crisp sweetness grainy and sweet malty flavor from this medium bodied brew. I have a slight alcohol burn on the back of my tongue after the aftertaste. Good beer for the style.

Have had many times but not recently (read 2 years) but never rated. Now having August 2014 at Eulogy in Philly in both the bottle and on draft to compare and contrast. The draft pour pulled somewhat cloudy while the bottle was a clear gold pour. Huge white top to both, though the bottle pour was frothier and left lots of lace. The draft head was fizzier and left little lace. Carbonation was much higher in the draft (but that is likely a component of the CO2 mix of the venue). Similar citrus, floral and toasted wheat flavors to both. Bottle pour feels thicker, juicier and more fragrant. Wildflower honey. Draft pour is sharper, tarter and harsher. Less refined but with brighter and more vibrant spikes. Both have notes of lemon zest, yellow plums, violets and buttered croissants. The draft reads with more tangerine peels. Bottle pour grows to much softer notes of Challah and Chanterelles. Herbal tea and potpourri element to both but the drafts sourness overpowers it. The bottle pour has a fullness that brings more complicated flavors into the mix. Over time - the draft remains sharper but less refined. The bottle warms to some deeper floral flavors. By the end the draft maintained a refreshishing sour bite while the draft meandered to a nice complex sweetness. Both are obviously good, for different reasons, but in balance the bottle wins out.

Now this was interesting. Very strong lemon aroma. Starts like a witbier, finishes like a tripel. The curious mix of flavours makes it diifferent from most Belgian beers - well worth trying.
