3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Brewed at Tangletown for their 10th anniversary. Light amber color with good head. Very sweet aroma and taste. Alcohol is prominent towards the end. Very solid take on a strong ale. Not out of this world, but def. worth trying.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A wonderfully crafted brew which pours a lovely golden amber light brown
off tap. Aroma is of Belgian sweetness, malt, and a tiny bit of hops in
the mix. German and Norweigan hops used to create this 10th Anniversary
brew for the Elysian Seattle brewry. Flavor consists of a malty hop
beginning moving into a tiny citrus note towards the end, along with
almost what seems peachy. The finish brings out the hops a bit more.
Not continually complex, but a very well balanced Belgian-style from one
of my favorite brewries!
