Location/Date:Bottle on August 2nd, 2013.
Appearance: Pours a nice golden opaque cloud with light white head.
Aroma: Aroma of doughy yeast, faint pine,
Taste: Light bitterness, faint sweetness of orange, light dough.
Palate:Medium body, smooth, a hint of a finish thatís not too aggresive.
Summary: First off, the palate on this is really nice. I like the idea of a belgian beer with american hops, and i enjoy golden ales so this was very good. Not as bitter as I would have expected, but a nice beer nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 8/15/2013. Pours moderately hazy and cloudy pale golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of big lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple, peach, pear, clove, pepper, banana, bubblegum, wheat, floral, grass, and floral/yeast earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange zest, pineapple, pear, clove, banana, pepper, bubblegum, floral, grass, wheat, and floral/yeast earthiness. Light earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus zest, pineapple, pear, clove, banana, pepper, bubblegum, floral, grass, wheat, and earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of citrus hops with fruity/spicy yeast esters; with a fair amount of flavor robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good hoppy Belgian style. Good balance and complexity of hop and yeast ester notes; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent beer. Aroma was nice. Dank hops with a note of gym socks. Pour was a nice cloudy gold with a one finger white head. Taste was alright. A little muddled. Lemon, cut grass, green hops and a hint of yeast. At times it was slightly tart and at times it was bitter. Nice carbonation.

Poured a light hazy beige color ale with a large fluffy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of biscuit malt with light fruity ester and some floral malt. Taste is also a nice mix of biscuit malt with light fruity ester and some floral dry hops with light residuals sugar notes. Body is a touch fuller then average with good carbonation. Refreshing and somewhat complex beer.

Iíll be scoring this higher than most. Maybe ícause itís 100į out and I didnít expect to find this quality beer on tap at a Marriott. If you canít decide between a Belgian or an IPA this is the beer for you. Nice dark golden color, crisp taste, fruity, a little hops with a slightly bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear golden with a fairly thick and fluffy eggshell head. Malty aroma has firm notes of apple, yeast and banana. Sharp flavor echoes the malt and fruit of the aroma, while downplaying the yeast and adding a subtle note of hops. Smooth texture is quite firm, though fizz leaves a little to be desired. Harpoon this one before itís gone!
