4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky, heavily creamed coffee color with a thin dense head of white foam. Minute carbonation. Sassy aroma with tropical fruit mixing with musty yeast and pasty dough. Biting, crisp and sharp on the first sip with a mellow nature underneath. Notes of pineapple, kiwi and acidic melon atop a rich, doughy malt base. Yeasty sharpness is tangy and almost sour. Hop bitterness and flavor are not apparent. Remains crisp and sharp throughout, but never spritzy. Light bodied. Finishes thicker, awash in tropical fruitiness and with a yeasty zest. A handsome brew of such light stature.

Drinkable ale went down well with a clean malty flavor. Only draw back is that it is very yeasty.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very blond beer. Milky if you pour everything. The aroma is hoppy, soapy and fruity. The taste is sweet hop with a yeasty bitter finish. The label, a purple flying bitch does look a bit cheap.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Faintly hazy pale gold with large fine bubbled lasting head. Very attractive fruit (peach & pineapple) cider hoppy soapy aroma. Medium smooth body. Unusual bitter then mellow sweet nectar flavoured start. Increasingly bitter middle and light woody yeast and bitter finish. They have quite wondorous things with the hops on this beer and can’t understand why others have rated it quite so lowly.

Cloudy blond color; creamy head. Smooth, quite malty, but still a bit dry (Triple-like). Fully enjoyable, not complex.
Hazy blond hale, big head. Quite strong dry hop aroma, dry, a bit sour. Dry, sour taste, pretty aggressive. Similar palate, maybe too bitter.

Pale, misty yellow color. Hoppy aroma. Clean taste. Thin and watery. Dry finish. Good light bodied ale - better than other American standards, but better Belgian blonds.

Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy medium yellow, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly hoppy (perfume), moderately yeasty (dough), with notes of apple and pineapple. Flavor is moderately sweet, moderately acidic. Finish is moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather dull in most respects, but bottle is of unknown age.
