Julio’s Belgian Beer Festival. Sample. By the time I got to this one I was seeing double. Rating it to keep track but don’t have any particulars. Wrote down in my notes that I really liked this one so will followup with future tastings.

After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity not wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and evenly of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass.
The beer has a thick amber color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is light hoppy bitter with a caramel touch. This beer smells fruity.

Copper color and a tall white head. Aroma has sweet malt, yeast, and dried fruit. Surprisingly sweet flavor, more sugar, sweet malt, and just a little hops. A little plant/flower character. Thick, sticky, and fulled palate.

Pours turbid orangy copper with huge, 4-finger fluffy white head. Nose is bready caramel malt, spicy fruity yeast, mild hops. Tastes very complex, with a smooth, velvety palate, and flavor hints of caramel malt, cobwebby yeast esters, brown sugarm some floral and orange flavors. This one was very good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
8 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass at Lunar Brewing, Villa Park, IL. The color was a hazy, orange/amber with a lasting, billowy, orange/tan, head and clingy foam lacing. The aroma was light mid-fruit, a hint of orange zest, and some soft Belgian Pils. The flavor added to these a little spice and low bitterness. Medium to light body. A tripel-light

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light sweetness, not terribly carbonated. Soft, spice, fruity zest. Nothing stand out but a very solid belgian and quite drinkable. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Orland Park, IL, Binny’s: It poured a somewhat hazed, deep amber body with a modest yet sustained amount of off-white foam that created sheets of slippery lace. It had a sweet fruity aroma with soft caramel, some soapy yeast, and vanilla. Soft mouthfeel. The flavor was somewhat spicy but was mainly caramel with a light citrusy, floral bitterness. Okay, but not inspiring.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a glowing cloudy mango color with a billowing three finger creamy light yellow head. Lots of yeast characterin the nose and reminiscent of a weizen strain. Hints of spice at first followed by earthy notes and some isoamyl acetate. With warmth I get mild hints of honey and orange zest. Flavor bears the resemblance to a weizen as well. Starts off with a spicy character and a citrus zest bite, wheat flavor develops and the beer leaves the mouth with a soft wheat feel and hints of banana. Palate is spicy with a noticeable citrus rind character.
