3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12/02/2007: Fatty Boombalatty pours a cloudy, dull orange color. It has an average-size off-white to beige head that dissipates a bit quickly and leaves a thin, frothy veil. The aroma is sweet and mildly spicy with hints of lemon, bubblegum, fruits, wheat, alcohol, and some sort of spices that I can’t put my finger on... Malt and fruit are balanced by spice and hops in the flavor. The bitterness escalates in the peppery and yeasty finish. Some alcohol is also noticeable as the beer warms up, but the balance is still in check with all the other flavors. Other flavors present include various fruits, creamy wheat malt, orange, citrus zest, and hints of sweet bubblegum. The mouthfeel of this medium-bodied beer is smooth goes down quite nicely. Overall this is a pretty tasty Belgian Ale with a hoppy twist in the finish that works well for this beer.
12 fl. oz. twist-off bottle from buckybeer. Thanks for the surprise bottle Mark! I really appreciate it! Rating #34 for this beer...

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In a shaker, from the bottle. A nice little Belgian with a strange name. Citrusy, a little acidic, and a nice unfiltered feel.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dry metalic aroma. Pours golden with no head. Sweet, a little cidery, cotton candy, and a little spicy in the flavor, a little banana. Kind of weak in the flavor. Not bad.

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.
