Brown pour with ruby highlights. A flew flecks of lace. The aroma was yeast, light spices and some citrus. The flavor was a fairly standard Belgian ale, led by the expected yeast profile and some malt. A bit of lively citrus made it slightly more interesting. Nice, medium bodied mouthfeel.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours pale amber with slize haze, and enormous white head. Plenty of carbonation! And the carbonation is noticeable on the palate as well, giving a pleasant effervescence. Nose has some bread and peach skin in the aroma. Palate has a lot of yeasty/bready flavors, mouth tingling soft spices, and a soft biscuity to caramel like malt sweetness. Easy drinking.

On tap at the Midway. Aroma is distinctly belgian yeast with some grassiness working. Flavor is nutty, sweet, and red fruit. Pours a dark brown with a decent tan head. Almost too easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Flying Saucer in KC. Pours a lightly clouded, amber-red-mahogany colored body with a thick and creamy, two-finger width, tannish beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a good amount of clinging lace. Aroma is sweeter with overripe fruits, a light caramel, yeast, some straw, and estery. Flavor is fruity yeast and a light, earthy caramel up front before a good amount of overripe fruits come in. Banana, plum, apricot, apple, and grape mixture with a light estery taste. Finishes with a soft, straw bitterness and lingers for a shorter duration with a lightly spiced yeast. Smooth with a light drying finish after a medium body and bubbly carbonation. Overall, a solid, well balanced Belgian beer. Not the most complex, but tasty and enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
my 100th beer. pours out almost like a dark pale ale producing a tall lumpy head that was almost white in color in fell super slow. the body is a hazy burnt oarnge with little carbonation rising up in the center of the glass. the aromas are very fruity. i smell apple, banana, grapes, and some plum along with a whole range of other fruits. i also get some caramel, a whole lot of sugar, and some roasted malts. it is medium bodied and kind of light on the palate. its kind of sweet, but balanced out by the malts that they used because i cant get any of the hops, but its still balanced. i taste the noted fruits along with some toffee and a lot of sugar. the alcohol is hidden very well and the aftertaste is sweet and a little short lived, but hung out for just a little while. nice beer, but a little fruity.
