3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Color is dark gold. Well controlled bubblegum/banana esters, baked fruits nose with sweet Belgian candy but light-moderate for the style. Flavor takes on a team element with Belgian crust and a small hint of herbal hops at the end. Relatively well cleaned out. Light finish, avoids many pitfalls for style. Sweeter but not boozy. Long herbal green, sweet candy finish. I am surprised I liked this a lot more than the other (few) raters. The difference may be because its on draft.

Bottl. Pours a copper color with white head. Spicy, yeasty, malty flavors. Nothing special.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Jon’s place on the 4th. Pours a pretty clear golden orange appearance with a nice, lasting cream colored head. A little musty and cobweby nose with banana bread and herbal notes. Apple, pineapple, chewy bread flavor. A bit of tanginess. Not that sweet but the flavor is a little strange. Actually a bit of butter too.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Pours a murky burnished dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that sticks around. Lots of lace. Tangy, musty, nitrogenous nose...not sweaty, but a little on the damp and old side. Creamy medium body with fizzy carb. Mid palate is a little nitrogen and carbonic bite, some stale orange peel, and mild cherry presence. They’re all over the road with this one.
