3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Funky fruity aroma in an amber pour. Fruity start with hints of spicy bread and bubblegum. Complex yet subtle with it. A great compliment to Sofie - albeit not quite as excellent as that brew.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Excellent full bodied beer. It gives you the sweet smoothness of a typical Belgium ale but with a lighter weight. It doesn't quite fill you up the way some Belgium ales can. Yummy beer

Bottle with 2013 on the label. Golden with a thick frothy head. Has lots of character that certainly hides its strength, with plenty of yeasts, pale malts, hints of fruit - very Belgian in style and very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour to 8oz nonic pint. Shrink from Whole Foods, deemed un-sellable. Bottled November 2014. A healthy, rich, clear copper pour with ephemeral head. Bright nose of belgian yeast clove with flowers and over-ripe apple, subtle banana. Flavor is clean and delicate ripe apple with smooth and tamed yeast presence. A bit sweet and juicy on the peak and finishes dry. Over a year old and it still smells (and tastes) quite nice, even to one who is not a fan of belgian yeast in ales. Getting this one for free, not a bad deal. Not the best ale I’ve enjoyed, but one of the more palatable and balanced Belgians I’ve had.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is the 2014 bottled product in a 750 ml bomber. A nice medium orange amber color with sparse white head and fruity nose. The taste is complex and slightly elusive, but definitely suggestive of dried fruits. Low bitterness. 3.9.
