3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml bottle from bev4less. Pours a murky amber color with a monster head that has good retention. The aroma is classic Belgian yeasts as you might find a strong saison or trippel, there is a bit of soap and some sweet mixed fruits as well. The taste is a Belgian style powerhouse with more Belgian esters, add in some apricots, green apples, caramel, grapefruit and rock candy. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. The finish is somewhat short and disappointing with a bit of lingering soap. Overall: A nice enough Belgian ale but nothing here to make me go back for more.

Bottle. Murky orange amber pour, with a large off white head. Aroma is sweet, yeasty, soapy, and highly carbonated. Flavors of sweet heavy malt, lime, caramel, mudled fruit, old banana, chewy, and yeast. This beer is not working for me, no thanks.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Out of a 750ml bottle. I got this from my friends at the Iron Fist Brewery. Went into this one with high hopes. Unfortunately it was run of the mill. Pours a light orange body with a cream head. Smell of kefir lime which is the same reason I didn’t like the 04-04-04 vertical epic from Stone. Very carbonated and without being shook up started to overflow and lost beer. But I think that is merely a brewing error of adding too much active Belgian yeast. Good sweet Belgian aftertaste with traces of strong alcohol. After the lime. If you like lime in your beer you Wöll probably love this beer. Just not for me. Doesn’t mean I won’t drink it though.

It’s a Tripel. Strong noticeable alcohol. Sweet. Nice glowing orange color. Has a sour bitterness I don’t care for. Nothing Farmhouse about it.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
750ml bottle pours a hazy orange with some thick, creamy white head. Nose is spicy, herbal, gristy, perfume, some tropical fruit. Flavor is peppery, candy, a bit too sweet, perfume. Heavy finish. Not my cup of tea.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Amber/Golden Straw Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Great Lacing
S: Floral, Garlic, Citrus, Mild Yeast
T: Veggie, Citrus, Yeasty
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Malty, Mildly Drying
Overall, this beer is geared more towards an IPA with a yeasty presence as opposed to a Saison with Hops. Good but not great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy dark amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma of Belgian fruit esters. Full bodied. Foamy carb. Flavor is earthy, spicey, hints of banana and clove (or maybe quite a bit more than hints), arguably malty. It’s dry though and it is quite substantial in flavors. The fruit flavor aspects vary through the finish. Never losing its earthy yeasty spicy characteristics.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ Iron Fist... Poured amber/orange with a thin white-ish head. Malt sugars offered a full body while the yeast esters and spicing opened it up. Good hop tones that were earthy spicy, and lime leaves opened it up to an added floralness. Balanced with lots of flavors, which could’ve resulted in some things pulling apart from each other, but I thought everything worked well together and enjoyed this beer quite a bit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden pour with a white head. Intense peach and apricot notes. Sweet dried fruits, banana, sugar, yeast, and some apple. A bit of bread, too. The flavor is sugary and bordering on cloying. Intense dried apricot and peach notes. Some pear, apple, and banana, too. Lightly floral, some yeast, faint spices, and plenty of sugar.
