3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from a friend. Poured a cloudy golden-orange color with a fluffy, dense white head that clings to the sides of the glass as it slowly recedes. Soft, delicate apricot and white peach pair with tart lemon notes alongside a dusty, earthy yeastiness and a soft, honey-tinged doughy sweetness offset by a lightly spicy hoppiness. Smooth, lightly sweet doughy entry with hints of honey leads into a moderate earthiness paired with a lightly spicy, drying hoppiness with undertones of soft fruits in the form of apricot, peach, red apple that linger into the dry finish where they are offset with a soft, slightly chewy yeastiness. Moderate carbonation, and moderate yet crisp mouth feel. They did a good job offsetting dryness with sweetness, all the while remaining delicate, creating an incredibly drinkable beer. Overall, I absolutely dig this stuff, one of the best American Belgian pale’s I have had in recent memory.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy yellow body with a small thin and fizzy white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is pretty nice, lightly fruity with some pale maltiness, light hoppiness, and some banana and passionfruit like esters. The flavor is light and delicate, some Hefeweizen like fruity esters and clean pale malt. Just a little hop bitterness on the finish that helps keep the sweet and fruity flavors from getting cloying and overbearing. Light bodied and easy drinking with soft active carbonation. Pretty nice stuff, I wish the ABV were a bit lighter, but ya can’t have everything.

Draught @ Lemon, Richmond, VA. Pours clear golden with airy white head. Clear aroma of malt and yeast, with fruity hints. Bitter flavour of hops, with notes of fruit and yeast and malty touches. Bitter and slightly citric aftertaste. Okay but quite synthetically fruity.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Hazy light amber color, white head cover, spots of lace. Thin aroma of malt. Taste is malt that adds yeasty fruit and light spice on the carbonated swallow, moving from there to a smooth hopped finish. Fairly thick and heavy in the stomach. Otherwise, a decent brew.
