3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the taproom. Clear golden color with a medium ivory white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Small patches of lace. Aroma of herbal yeast, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy yeast, doughy malt and subtle cloves. The finish is herbal and spicy with a touch of fruit left in the aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pint on tap. Lighter than I expected, clear, no lacing, and minimal bubbly head that burns off quickly. Average citrusy aroma, nothing that good. Somewhat weak tasting, almost watered down. Very soft palate, to a fault. Tries to be complex, but it’s not great.

Bottle pour. Cloudy golden with large white head but fades quickly. Lots of different aromas, bread, banana, lemon, bubblegum, apple, and light spices. Light body. Strong lemon taste. Lasting sour aftertaste. Some good qualities, but not a great finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got in a trade with swingracex. 22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours hazy golden straw color with a 1 finger fairly dense white head with decent retention, that reduces to a ring of lace. Minimal lacing on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Light amount of bready tartness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, pear, apple, white grape, banana, wheat, bread, clove, light pepper, bubblegum, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance and robustness of fruity/earthy yeast and pale malt flavors; with crisp malt/yeast/tartness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly bready/acidic mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice Belgian pale ale. Good balance and robustness of pale malt and fruity/earthy yeast flavors; and extremely smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
