3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly hazy golden copper with a medium bubbly/creamy white head that left lacing and did a decent job of sustaining. Aroma is very fruity with hints of citrus and tropical fruits, Belgian yeast, bread, a peppery spiciness, some caramel malt hidden in there and citrus from the hops. Flavor is lemon, very dry, bready lightly bitter and spicy. The yeast comes through a bit but not as much as the fruit as I’m getting from the aroma.

750ml bottle. clear golden/orange color with slight funky aroma. I took the 1st sip and thought that it was thin a mildly flavorfull. After a couple more sips I realized the beauty of this beer. Clean lemon taste with dry finish. Very refreashing.

Light brown color, small head with a nice lacing. I found this beer in a not so good way sour, not tooo hoppy. Dry finish. I liked the Spicey version much better.

This bottle came to me from the awesome illinismitty!! We were a little concerned about rating the beer being that the bottle has leaked in transit but damn, the leak didn’t do anything to affect the flavor, carbonation or enjoyment of this beer! Pours a clear golden color with a medium head and a little bit of lacing Aroma is grassy and smooth. Flavor is grassy and slightly bitter with a very mild hop profile coming through at the end. Very smooth and slightly bubbly on the palate. Thanks again Sean!!!

25 oz bottle, tasted next to Spicy. Pours a dark gold colored body with a slight yeast haze under a large foamy head that lasted forever. Lots of carbonation. Aroma is lightly funky with some fruity yeast and a very light hoppiness. A little mustiness as well. Flavor is farmhouse funk with a little hoppiness, quite yeasty and dry on the finish. Mouthfeel is creamy in texture with lively but very soft carbonation. Very nice mouthfeel. Overall, full flavored and quite a refreshing summer sipper. One of the better Heavyweight’s I’ve had.
