3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from 12oz bottle into a snifter. Bottled date is just under 1 month ago.
Appearance: light golden-apricot hue with a light haze and a medium-light effervescence. Very little head but some spotty lacing is left on the glass. Head dissipated quickly.
Smell: fruity (mainly orange and apricot), wheaty, spicy, aroma, .
Taste: sweet & tart more than bitter flavor with wheat, orange, rye and coriander.
Mouthfeel: near medium body with good carbonation.
Overall: a nice Belgian-style beer, but with a poor head and a style that is mid-way between a Belgian White and Belgian Tripel.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2/1/13. 12oz bottle from Grassroots. Hazy golden orange pour with a nice khaki head that fades to a ring and barely laces. Fruity esters, lots of orange, and wheat in the aroma. The flavor boasts more orange, some sugar, a touch of spice, and a hint of lingering dryness. Somehow it reminds me of a fancier, stronger Blue Moon. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is spicy yeast, lemons and grainy malts. The flavor is spices, wheat along with other malts, slightly funky yeast and a mildly alcoholic finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled January 2...which means this meaty orange-lemon grass funk is all original. Based on the aroma alone, saison is probably the proper style. Taste is more like a wheat beer: sweet, tangy and spicy. You would never guess the relative strength of this beer. Very smooth, easy drinker. In another successful excursion into Belgium via Denver.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013 Nice yeasty aroma as expected, mouth feel is only big thing missing. Its a nice brew nice head, nice appearance. I must say I prefer this over Hades, better balance and flavor.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
bottle. heavily hazed golden wheat body, small white head, yeast does not come out of suspension. might guess about some sour mash wheat and malt here, there’s a lot of minerals / salted lemon / dish soap / tart citrus acid in the nose, but there’s also some coriander / ginger / peppercorn notes that are affecting it. syrupy, sweet, Belgian-style golden ale, that’s about what it is. but it becomes terribly sweet and juicy - making me salivate and gleek - and the oily and syrupy sugar just sits permanently in the mouth. dang. have to say the nose had promise but the flavor and texture - goopy, syrupy, cloying - ruin it for me.
