5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Golden in color. Aromas of pineapple and pear. Delicious Belgian esters, without being too malty and sweet. Great Belgian-Style Golden ale! Deceitfully powerful ;)

Bottle shared at Butler’s with Chris and Craig. Thanks so much, Craig. Pours a light yellow. Aroma is yeasty, some bubblegum. Some malt. Flavor follows, but falls flat a bit. Mild carbonation. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours cloudy straw-golden into the glass, almost reminiscent of grapefruit juice, with a stiff fizzy head that dissipates to ring lacing. The nose is of yeasty esters, light sourdough, some barnyard and dank basement aromas, alongside a hint of ripe melon. Flavors of lemon, melon, light doughy notes, crackers and a hint of pepper finish with a combination of well-balanced tartness and lemon-pepper spice. The mouthfeel is almost like a carbonated juice, which helps the complexity and substance achieve an easy quaff to the palate. It hides the ABV superbly, which lends perfectly to its name, ’Deceit’, as this is easy-drinking, but doesn’t feel nearly as heavy as the ABV may suggest. Great for any time of day, as an afternoon sipper, an aperitif or nightcap. Really nice, in my opinion. Great brew!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is spices, pale malts and hints of earth and white bread. The flavor is spices, citrus, pale malts and a mix of alcohol and slight liquor in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a bomber. Pours a bright golden hue just as expected for a Belgian of this genre. Makes a frothy white head with millions of micro bubbles that slowly dissipate over a few minutes. A bit of lacing but not much. Aroma is of lemon and pear and a touch of vanilla. As with most Belgians this one is quite effervescent. Tastes of malt and citrus and is deceptively high in ABV so savor slowly.

Bottle at the BTBF. The look is clear, golden in color, decent white head. The smell is fruit, some hops, heavy yeast, and definitely Belgian style. The taste is the same, easy drink, not too bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy golden with a medium white head, very fine lacing, excellent retention. Farmyard, hay, biscuit, tangerine aromas. Medium light body, zesty, good carbonation. Lightly sweet, light tartness, gentle bitter finish with a lingering pepper note. Brett notes are present but not overpowering. Enjoyable.
