3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy gold with a thin foamy white head. Estery nose with pale grains and peppercorn with a bready yeasty sweetness. Taste is also not as dry as I had hoped, but it has that quintessential Great Divide balance. Flavor is peppery and yeasty with a pale grain background, kinda slightly fruity. Lots of coriander too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a lightly cloudy pale straw yellow with one finger of thin fizzy head. Looks viscous. Nose is fine, grainy and vegetal with some banana and lots of raw fruit coming through. Raw Belgian yeast. Grainy and rough flavor, pear or cooked peach.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy gold color, with a thin, off-white head. Mandarin oranges up front, cane sugar, cloves, cinnamon, and black pepper. Sticky sweetness, with a slightly sour undertone, with some musty notes. Medium body, with a hard feel and a little sticky and acidic feel. Overall, this is a sweet and tasty beer, but lacks complexity and depth.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Semi hazy yellow pour with decent white head. Nose of orange peel and coriander. flavor is orange pith, wheat, and slight spiciness. Bitterness, but a little sweet vanilla for balance. Not bad, but overly fruit orange bitterness, not so much flavor. Meh.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Double-Wit with a Tripel influence from appearance to the finish; hazy golden yellow body, light, soft spice, herbal with a light sweet malt base, mellow drink; I’ll go with a 16oz wheat beer glass for the rest of the sixer; could be a gateway beer for a bluemoon lover

Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with bubbly white head and light lacing. Atoms of Belgian yeast, sweet fruity esters, and bubblegum. Taste is fruity esters, lemon, grapefruit, bubblegum, slight tart quality. Decent for an American tripel, bit of a burn on the way down.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Proof. Deep hazy gold pour with a bubbly white head. Very fruity bubblegum aroma, light tangerines, hint of sourness, Belgian candy sugar and some sweet pale grains. Flavor similar but falls flat, weak carbonation and medium bodied. Was expecting a decent beer considering the nose, lacks the zesty richness.
