4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dark Orange/Amber color with a cloudy appearance. The flavor is a mixture of sweet yeasts, floral hops, hefe-cloves, bananas, bubblegum, toffee, malts and barley. The body is a bit heavier, the carbonation is balanced quite well and it feels very crisp when drinking. It’s a pretty good Belgian Style ale, not the best I’ve had but it’s definitely up there!

12oz bottle from Casanova. Poured with a thin white head, dark orange in color, cloudy. Strong yeast & wheat aromas with notes of spice in it. Thick mouthfeel with a very tangy yeasty flavor. Very full bodied for a wheat beer, lots of good stuff going on in this beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a slightly cloudy golden amber with a huge head of white foam mostly lasting with lots of tiny bubbles. Nose is citrus and spices. Taste is very flavorful with spices, citrus and hops complete with a bit of zing. Finishes on a fairly dry hop note. An excellent Belgian- not as sweet as most. To be enjoyed with white cheeses, apples and crackers.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle of a six pack, lots of foam on this one, an annoying amount actually. Could only pour about a half a bottle at a time. My palate is not that of the aristocrat so I was not able to taste the bubblegum, but I was not disappointed by this beer, i caught a good buzz and was not offended. I would say that calling it a fatty is somewhat of a stretch, moderately overweight would be a more accurate description, maybe a person with a 27 or 28 BMI. If I were to name this beer I would call it "husky". Lose a point for all the foam.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Well you cannot say this beer is the same old same old. I suppose our RateBeer friends have to put this under some category. May I suggest "Offbeat Blends" or "Hopeless Cute Names"? This one starts with an aroma in the ballpark of a Belgian--all spiced and bubblegummish. The hops give it a dry bite and a peppery finish. Fun to try but definitely not sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear amber color with a small head. Great aromas of bubble gum and bananas This has a nice fruity malty taste with hints of bananas peeking through. Nice bubble gum aftertaste. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice enough beer orange-red with a quickly dissolving head. Mine was perfectly clear, but the yeast was caked on the bottom. A bit fizzy, but not a detriment at all. Nice fruity nose with a bit of spice. Apricots and allspice with a bit od honey. Very dry...even surprisingly so - makes it very quaffable/quenching...but almost dusty/chalky. Overall is a nice beer in its own right. Not a perfect Belgian but a very good beer. I noticed this one was brewed in Black River Falls (Sand Creek) and not by Gray’s. Good move IMO.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy yellow/gold with a medium white head. Aromas of citrus, banana, clove, and yeast. Taste is very much the same, but still does not taste as good as it smells. A bit too much carbonation and too much of a dry finish for me. Overall just ok.

Bottle. Pours hazy yellow/gold with a medium white head, champagne like bubbles. The head diminishes pretty quickly. Aromas of citrus, banana, clove, yeast, pepper. Taste is very good, more citrus, oranges, more banana and clove. Good carbonation, finishes dry. I think I found a new, regular summer brew. Good stuff, I wasn’t expecting much, but pleasantly surprised.

Man this beer is so dope. Really great sweet Belgian yeast strain used on this one, give the beer a nice character. Earthy with notes of biscuit, hay, wheat, and delicious crisp finish. Yes!
