3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was good. From the tap at The Nomad in Milwaukee. Served in a tulip. Looks like ruby red grapefruit juice, has a delightful yeasty aroma with spices and citrus notes. Tastes like orange-grapefruit-cider, which sounds bad but is actually quite pleasant. Not overly spicy like many Belgian knockoffs, so it was nice not to have overwhelming wheat or coriander in there too.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Descriptors: golden amber appearance with a little froth; crisp, fruity, yeast flavor with a dry finish. Has a pleasant acidic "bite" which I find to be the most notable characteristic of the beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. 2006 bottle , from my brother. Hazy amber with a big, billowing yellow/tan head that collapsed over several minutes. Aroma of yeast, earth, lemon, light stone fruits, and spice. Body is light to medium, complemented by lively effervescence, and a mildly acidic, clean palate. There is some sourness in the flavor that counters a honey like sweetness, and at the finish a spicy bitterness comes on strong. Very drinkable and thirst quenching.
