Bottle. Pours clear hazed pale gold with big off white head and excellent lace. Aromas of cloves, banana, grain, lightly sweet and aromatic malt and light floral notes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Almost clear golden body with lasting white head. A little spicey in the taste with not a lot else going on, easy drinking, simple, what I expect from a belgian pale ale.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Cloudy orange pour with a big fluffy white head that quickly disappears. Loads of cloves and spice on the nose. Nothing meshes together very well. Almost minty. Very over carbonated. Banana and spices mingle around but the excess carbonation cuts off anything else. Not great

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
(on tap at the brewery) This was the biggest surprise for me. Poured a golden straw colour with thick foamy head. Slightly sour yeast aroma combined with some sweater dark plum and other flavours. Mouthfeel was smooth and finish reasonably dry. If this is what I should drink after mowing the lawn, then I need to mow more often!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A limited special from Hopdog Beerworks. The Belgian lawn mower features a sweetish aroma reminiscent of Belgian wit beers. Its appearance is honey golden and cloudly due to being unfiltered. the beer is of light to medium body and has a sweet flavour followed by a lightly dry although not astringent aftertaste. Overall it is a pleasant summer sipper.
