3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. It’s a clear, dark golden beer with a small off-white head. There’s lots of peaches, mango and generic fruityness in the aroma, some grass and resin hints. It’s super soft on the palate, with a low carbonation level, medium to full body. Tropical fruits and some bitterness in the mouth, not much maltyness going on. Fruity finish. A bit weak all the way, but nice indeed. 150614

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Yellow-ish body with some amber-orange tints. Unfiltered looking, super hazy with a lasting white cream perched on top. Aroma surrounded by piney hops; leafy, herbal, with a good dose of citrus peel in the periphery. Light notes of clove-y spice & typical Belgian yeast esters. Pretty standard for a Belgian IPA. Don’t get sorghum, tapioca, agave, or chestnut... Or anything out of the ordinary, really. Flavor drinks like more like a pale ale. Very low bitterness. Notes of leaves, pines, & white pepper are there, but more so in flavor, not necessarily in IBU levels. I get a mild toasted nuttiness, I guess from the chestnuts. Slightly sweet honey coated bready & spicy yeast finish with a little bit of herbal pine. Lofty mouth feel.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet fruity start, heavy sugary finish middle, dry finish and nutty. Finish a little too dry and comes on too quickly.
