3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a medium slightly hazy golden with a huge lasting head. Great carbonation showering to the surface. Beautiful appearance. Aroma is medium spice, wheat, fruit zest. Flavor is also nice pepper spice, citrus zest, wheats and malt. Body was just a tad thin but overall I was quite impressed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear orange with a 1/2 finger off-white head, fading to a film before too long. Aroma of Belgian yeast, coriander, some slightly off old lemons, a bit of wheat and a hint of spicy herbal hops. Flavor was more lemony with more bitter hop presence than I would’ve thought from the aroma, and after the first sip (which made me think something went wrong with this beer) things began to go together better. Orange rinds and flowery perfume makes itself apparent and dominate the flavor. Peppery hoppy semi-dry finish that is peaks at a 3 (of 10) for bitterness. Alcohol is present, but barely. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Pretty tasty--was pleasantly surprised.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Hazy copper gold, light head and lacing. Nose of bright carbonation and yeast, grass, citrus, hay, bright citrus and grass. Wait, I already said that....and typed it. The flavor is plickery on the mouth, more grass and citrus. Nice belgian notes, interesting. Don’t ask me what plickery means, but there it is on my notebook. I was drinking, so it can’t be wrong.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks for the bottle from secret santa. 6 months old. Pours with a thin microbubble veil over the surface that lasts indefinitely. The liquid is a murky golden color. Aroma of pear, banana, corriander and cloves. Nice typical belgian aroma. Taste of wheat, lemon. Medium-light body makes it easy to drink. Hops are subdued. Improved flavor as it warms up. Actually pretty nice. I like it much more than others it seems.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is golden orange and mildly hazy. Aroma of fruit syrup used for soaking pineapple in particular. Tangy and sugary. A spicy bit of mint, and cloves. The wheat taste is crisp and refreshing, though mired a bit by suggestions of rotten, fermenting pears and oranges. More cloves. Yeast presence gets a little pushy with warmth. Too sweet. Palate highlights the unfortunate foul bits, which cling for a while after swallowing. An obviously poor foundation. Promising but very weak.
