4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2013 Bottle: murky sunshine yellow body with a soapy, bone white head that lasts as a nice chunky collar & swampy film. Aroma is bursting with fruit; lemon flesh, orange, peach, mild apricot, white grape, all backed my solid helping of farmhouse funkiness. Wet hay, cotton, slight sweaty & cheesy funk. Somewhat floral, faintly spicy & grassy hop character. Complex aroma. Taste includes much funk & fruit as well. Lemon peel, peach tones, musty hay, orange zest, hints of barnyard sweat funk, crisp melon, fresh grassy tone, slightly vinous white grapes & a strong bready, yeast filled finish. Lots of yeast. Chunky yeast body with a highly carbonated, crispy & dry finish. A great example of the style.

Pours almost clear out of the bottle with nice white fluffy head. Slightly tart flavor with dry finish. Didn’t taste the orange at all.

Bottle - 750ml. Hazy blond body with an average white frothy head. Fresh, well balanced hoppy aroma with malty, coriander, and citrusy hints. Its malty/hoppy taste carries yeasty, citrusy/orange, and herbal notes. Carbonation is light. Ends with a sharp bitter/sour finish. Well done.

Blonde paille, limpide, peu mousseuse, au nez fermier. En bouche, c’est ample, citronné, levuré. Toutes les saveurs sont au diapason; c’est très bon.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Whole Foods during Goose Island Migration Week St Louis, paired with Wild Ophelia chocolates. It poured a mostly clear golden colour with white foam, long-lasting with lace. Crisp, grainy, less tart and spicy than Matilda, but still somewhat complex. Rising bread dough, fruity esters, pepper and clove phenols. Approachable, drinkable, but still possessing some nice Belgian yeast aspects. Light body, spritzy carbonation, noble hop balance, dry finish, tasty. A good entry-drug to Belgian golden ales or saisons, in a similar way to Duvel, for instance.
