3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/10/13, My 100th Belgian Strong tick!
Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast, spice, fruit, some veggie notes, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is mid-sweet, a somewhat Belgiany feel, yeast, and a little spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-to-lively carbonation, and decent feel
Thought this beer was solid overall, but no more than that. It drinks alright, and it has some flavor, but it certainly isn’t memorably good.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From ZDK’s tasting. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, beets, cooked vegetables. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is very sweet, brown sugar, smoke. The finish is sweet, vegetable. Medium in body. Not bad. A lot going on in this beer. Maybe too much.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle that I took to a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Sweet on the nose, definitely get the agave, but without looking for agave, I’d probably just go with ice cream and hints of herbal lemon. Sweet agave notes, candy and light bitterness. Tasty but nothing overly exciting.
