3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Not sure how I missed this beer. Nice head, yellow-gold color. Fantastic banana, citrus, spice and yeast character. Mild hop presence. Arguably the most Belgian-tasting beer there.

I believe this is the worst beer I’ve ever had. Tasted like dirty socks and felt very acidic.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at brewery: Was told this was a run-off from one of their bigger beers (Armageddon maybe). Poured deeper golden color with a large mostly lasting white head. Aromas of sweet fruit and bubble gum up front, lots of bready yeasts in the back. Flavor was mostly doughy and yeasty, sugar sweetness as well. Thicker coating mouthfeel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a nice highly carbonated copper color with a thick white head. Big Belgian estery aroma, sweet bubblegum and pear give way to a cola like aroma and cinnamin, as it warmed I picked a note of burnt popcorn (I might have been having a stroke though). The flavor is malt forward, biscuit and breadlike, some bitterness with a crisp finish. The body is light, good for a summer thirst quencher. This is a great addition to the summer line up, and a nice alternative to the witbiers everyone else is offering.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A very delicious Belgian pale .. not that there are that many to compare it to. The yeast dominates this beer. Plenty of sugar, cotton candy, and bubble gum in the nose. And the flavor follows the aroma. A little sweet, but nice yeast bite and plenty of hops to off-set. A very satisfying brew!
