3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Apricot hue with a thin film of cream-colored froth. Aroma had a little banana, pear and fresh coconut. Flavor is similar, with a little more potpourri-like floral notes added to dried nanners and soft pear before a mostly dry finish. A little peppery astringency. A light, refreshing table beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can pours a hazy golden color with huge white head that sticks around and leaves good lacing. Nose is full of Belgian yeast, but aroma also has some banana, orange, lemon and cloves, Taste is slightly bitter with a slightly sour aftertaste. Body is light to medium with average carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. Very easily drinkable and well balanced, although it didn’t make me say WOW. This is a solid sessionable American take on a Belgian ale, which I’ll try again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Pours a very slightly hazy dark golden color with a somewhat large off-white head on there. Nose is quite yeasty, with a little bit of fruit coming through as well as some clove. Taste is fairly dry and only slightly tart, yet feels very light on the palate. Almost crisp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Strong yeasty/floral/citrus aroma. Pours a cloudy light yellow with a very full head. Floral and citrus characteristics carry over to the taste followed immediately by strong, lively carbonation. Not an outstanding beer, but certainly not the worst.
