3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle split with a few friends. The pour’s deep gold with a large white head. The nose is spice, esters, some banana, biscuit, and bubblegum sweetness. The taste is banana nut bread, candy corn, earthy husk, some tart pear juice and ribbon candy. Slightly chalky yeast. Light finish, soft palate. Smooth drinking considering the weight on this. Overall, a nice tipple! Colorado’s producing some great stuff right now.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750 ml bottle. Pours a hazy straw amber with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.
The aroma is sweet malts and banana with straw and yeast.
The flavor is sweet soapy belgian malts and banana with some earthy yeast and a dry, almost plasticky, finish. There’s a bit of warming alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with a lot of spritzy carbonation.
Overall, an OK Belgian with some off-notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour is a hazy, golden color with a full, white, creamy head which settles to a thin, pillowy layer and leaves some Belgian lace. The nose is pleasantly spicy, lightly woody, nice lemony esters, light herbs (rosemary), and some light sweet rolls. The flavor is similar with a growing peppery note, lemon still adding tartness, similar herbal and sweet roll notes, light candi sugar underneath, and some bread; the bitterness is moderate and the acidity is moderately high. The palate is seemingly moderately full, warming, creamy, lively, and round. The finsh is warm with pepper, creamy bready notes, a mildly astringent acidity of lemon, and still some herbal. Actually a nice tripel BSGA hybrid type beer with nice spice and herbal complexity but an acidity that was overwhelming to the beer style at time. Maybe a bit of time would calm the spice and allow the tartness to just add to the beer. Decent beer but not as easy to drink as they (or I) would have thought.

Pours a hazy blond with almost no head. Lots of delicious yeast on the nose. Highly carbed and bready - would make for a great summer beer.
