3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Public house draft before a bottle release. Really well made and pleasant Belgian ale: a little spice, a little sweet and surprisingly tasty for being such a sessionable ale.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured a clear dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectation where met.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured on draft. Appearance is between gold and amber. The head is crisp white. Aroma is sweet amber malts, with a candi sugar-esque vibe. This beer doesnít leave much of an impression on me, but I could definitely drink this beer about any time. Just a good session beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub, served in a goblet for $3. Nice, opaque brown-red color, a nice dense cream-colored head, cool lace. Nice light smokiness, good earthy hops. Some spice. Great, light crisp carbonation, dry texture, light body. Very drinkable, decent aftertaste (smoke lasts a bit through it, but itís not too strong). Nice, sort of sweet caramel taste, with a good savory balance provided by the malty smokiness, here. One of the best Belgians Iíve ever had. Impressive flavor for how light this is (a common trend with Jackie-Os lighter beers, Iím finding)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Public House bottle release on 6/25/11. Clear amber pour with a medium white head. Banana and malt nose with a bit of caramel and peppery yeast. Malty flavor with a bit of banana along with caramel and pepper before a dry bready finish. Very nice for a style I donít normally dig.
