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.

3.3 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, isnít 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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy orange-amber color with a large yellow white head that produced some lacing. The aroma was caramel, strong lemon, yeast and pepper. The flavor was tart, and bitter with lemon, pepper and yeastiness mixing. The finish was long, tart lemon. Medium body. Ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange pour with a quickly dissipating head and plenty of suspended yeast. Yeast, hop, and spice aroma. There is a little bit of everything in the flavor. Yeast, hop, fruit, spice, malt, and alcohol. The hop[ adds a lot of zestiness that electrifies the tongue at times. Bubblegum showed up after the glass warmed, a result of the yeast. So multi-faceted! New flavors in every other sip. Delicious, too!

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Furthermoreís 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 doesnít get there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, shared by beerpig317. Mostly hazy, golden - orange color. Thin off-white head. Couple dots of lace. Aroma of caramel malt and ripe pineapple. Good, citrus-zesty finish. Lighter belgian candy sugar, but itís there as well. Good moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Bigger, more full body. Lighter, smooth, kind of crisp carbonation. Satisfying, lightly funky belgian yeast flavor. Good belgian strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from MrPickles - thanks, Andy! Hazy gold pour with a ton of sediment and a pretty sizable head. Crisp and light body for the most part, and itís pleasant to roll around in the mouth. Aroma is a bit sharp, very intense grass and yeast backed by a bit of spice. The somewhat aggressive hops combine with that same yeasty sharpness for a flavor thatís a bit imbalanced to me. But itís sweet enough to be enjoyable overall, and Iím glad to have tried this one.

12 oz bottle. Straw yellow with a light semi-sweet spicy nose. Smooth beer with a fast spicy hop finish. Decent beer.
