3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at Dotty’s (Madison, WI). Birthday/VDay Dinner with the missus. Pours a murky hazed amber pour, darker in body with some gentle glow, orange gold, some homemade applesauce. Cakey white head films well, laces ok. Aromas are gentle sweetness, pear and apple, kisses of yeasty and a gentle clove. Mellow honey sweetness, touches of melon, doughy malts. Touches of bubblegum, pear, and gentle doughy grainy malts. Mellow Belgian yeast influence on the nose. Initial shows a lighter end of medium bodied, touches of sweeter bubblegum, dough, and fruit waft into the fold. Touches of coriander, mellow Belgian yeast, touches of citrus dance in. Clove and coriander mix, coriander hitting the palate better as we get further in. Gentle bubblegum, dryness as we move back. Some grassiness, mellow yeast, touches of spice, gentle apple and dry grainy malts. Loses some of that sweetness as we move past the middle, hits with just a touch of heat to let you know this beer is a bit bigger than you may have expected. Overall, not usually a style I relish. This seems well constructed though and certainly hit the spot for me this evening. Solid.

Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with small white head. Rather weak malty, hay aroma. Malty, alcohol, apricot, coriander, and spicy flavors. For a strong belgian, this is a pretty nice sessionable belgian. I could see myself knocking back a few of these.
