3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at Goose Island Clybourn. Clear gold pour with a medium white head. Peppery Belgian yeast nose with banana, clove, lemon and grapefruit. Crisp citrus flavor with grapefruit dominating before banana and clove smooth things out. Citrus comes out more in the nose and flavor as it warms. Also present in the flavor as it warms are hints of pineapple and coconut. Interesting brew, but would like to try it Americanized as opposed to Belgian.

On tap at gi cly. Clear yellow body white thin head. Nose of Belgian yeast. A little candy and dough. Thin flavors. Yeasty banana and lemon with a light sugarry sweetness. Slightly bitter finish. Not bad but could use a smoother body and more flavor.

Cask at Revolution. Pours hazy golden with normal cask white head. Aromas of citrus, hops, and some malts. Flavors were citrus, hops, and some belgian flavors. Cross between a belgian golden ale and an american pale ale. Decent amount of hops. Might have been better off cask.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Day of the Living Ales. Per brewer, this is actually a Belgian Blonde. Pours a slightly hazed gold, nose is distinctly Belgian, banana and then some citrus on top. I do pick out the lemony sorachi ace. This will be a great summer beer, odd to have on right now. Still, pretty tasty blonde.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2010 Tasted on cask at Goose Island Clybourn. Pours a pale, cloudy golden with a thin but lasting white head. There is a very light citrus aroma, but mostly cereal. On the palate there is a slightly bitter citrus flavor and tastes a bit like green grapes. The body is super light and light carbonation to be expected from a cask ale. Overall, this is an easy drinker but far from exciting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2010 Tap at goose clybourn... Pours a semi-transparent golden haze with a medium soapy white head... Aroma of musty and perfumey citrus like ethers...Flavors are really fruity in nature. Semi-sweet with predominantly citrusy tangerine profile almost a touch of banana like a hefe. Refreshing enough with moderate carbonation and medium bodied....i don’t think this is an ipa so the style might need to be corrected.
