2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at RFD in DC. Pours clear light yellow. Nose is slightly sweet, no discernible hops. Palate is fuzzy, canít distinguish itself in hoppy qualities or the sweet belgian yeastiness that you might look for here. Flavors just donít come out right...itís muddled.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bobertkuekn! Pours a clear dark golden color with frothy white head and active carbonation. Aroma is yeast, lemon, citrus, and florals. Taste is sweet with more florals. Not very bitter or malty. Not much complexity, but it has a nice mouthfeel and is really easy to drink. I could make a night with just this beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear and bright, amber-golden. The thin head quits fairly quickly. The aroma is arresting ... hinting at a sugary alcohol kiss. But the drink is relatively mellow, Americanized hoppiness intermingled with a yeasty, esthery fruitiness, ending with an enigmatic citric bite. Delish. (#4610, 6/8/2012)

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours yellow golden with an inch of white head. Some fruits, light grasses and spice in the nose. Light grapefruit, pepper, and greens in the mouth.. Watery mouthfeel. Drinkable, but nothing special. A bit on the light side.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Appearance: bright, crystal clear gold with frothy white head. Aroma: bright citrus, orange, floral hops, bread, dough, hay. Taste: touch of floral hops from start all the way thru finish, with just a little of that dough and hay in the middle ending sugar sweet, floral and hint of lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: thin, crisp body with light to medium carbonation. Overall: itís actually a very refreshing beer. Nice balance of a good hoppy pale ale and yeasty Belgian but just missing a little on the malt end. But, this would be nice served cold on a very hot day (better to me than even a wheat ale like Oberon).
