3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow gold body with virtually no head at all. The nose is really nice: tropical fruits, fresh delicate hops, a subtle coriander note, light yeast, and indeed a touch of bubblegum. The bright hops and coriander grab you right away, yielding a heavy perfume like flavor that while interesting, isn’t especially great. A heavy dose of sweetness and tropical fruits follows, but it does dry out a bit on the back end with the help of the fizzy effervescent carbonation. Rather heavy on the tongue for a Belgian Ale, but the carbonation does help. Overall a pretty interesting beer, perhaps not the greatest, but I did like it.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper - fizzy body, minimal head - nose of spices, overripe apples, wheat, very light, earthy phenols - lively texture, medium body - medium dry, with flavors of toasted grains, peppery character, light fruit sweetness - subdued spices and phenols, but rustic and earthy nonetheless - finish is moderately acidic, with lingering bitterness - tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This poured a dark amber color with a beige head. Aroma was of belgian spices, slighty roasted, and yeast. Flavor was spicey, some darker candy sugar, and some medium frutiness as well. Pretty drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Bob’s McFarland Liquors in McFarland, WI. Pours a cloudy light caramel amber brew with a thick fizzy off-white head. Aroma of light wheat, yeast and a touch of orange peel. Other aroma picked up were banana esters and herbal hops. Taste is highly carbonated, yeasty dry palate and medium bodied. Finish is dry and smooth. An unusual name for a Begian Ale and a good light style Belgain at best.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Deep brass colored body that is clear as possible with that color, topped by a quickly fading light khaki head. The aroma is obvious Belgian yeast inspired with clove, cinnamon and funky banana esters. The taste is lightly spiced with clove and tomatoes. A hint of metal sneaks in the falvor. There is a nice finish that sticks with you, like hay and ginger ale. The body is very light for the abv, this is scary drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy to cloudy amber color with a diminished off-white head. Bread dough, honey, orange peel, banana and bubblegum. Certainly a full belgian ester/phenol aroma. More a strong, fruity wit aroma. A light honey flavor start with some pale malt and tropical fruit mixed in. A background of wheat and oat. Quite full in feel, nearly too full, but still enough zip to keep it lively. Light fruit seem to come out more at it lingers in the glass, with raisins and currants. A decent standard Belgian ale. Certainly beats paying $3 for something similar and less fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan color with a thin white head. Crisp herbal yeasty aroma, some decided sweetness. Very interesting and unique beer, par for the Furthermore course. In some ways like a Double White, with a thick malty sweetness behind the vanilla-orange peel edges. I suppose the term "bubblegum" will have to suffice in describing the sweet, herbal yeasty flavors. The spicy/herbal attributes of the beer come off pretty strong. Ginger, coriander, cinnamon..you name it. Complex and unique.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle courtesy of BeerFMAndy, a man who never disappoints. Served in a tulip.
Pours a bright peach color with a really nice two-finger white head. Good lacing as it goes down and a thin collar stays along for the ride. The nose brings some light bready malt as well as a light floral aroma and a bit of earth and spice. Flavor has mild malt sweetness plus a bit of a hop presence. Yeast kicks in with some mild spice toward the finish. Really light, yet creamy, mouthfeel that is the highlight of the beer for me. Nicely done. Thanks again, Andy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Furthermore’s second best beer. Aroma of a barnyard, very Belgian in character. Flavor has lemon and lots of hops blended with spices. Refreshing and easy to drink. Aroma leads the drinker to believe it might even be sour but it doesn’t get there.
