3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow gold body under a small fizzy white head. The nose is lightly fruity and sweet with some honey notes and a light yeastiness. The flavor isn’t all that exciting, some pale bready maltiness, rather sweet, fruity, a slight alcohol kick, floral finish, minimal yeastiness. Medium bodied with a slight sugary stickiness and fizzy active carbonation. Can’t get into this one too much, a little too sweet and lacking in complexity.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Courtesy my Secret Santa. Thanks! Now to the beer. Blah. Was not able to finish this. Aroma was the saving grace of this beer. Sweet honey, Belgian yeast and cotton candy. You could almost smell sweetness and candi sugar. Smelled kind of like a Bit O’ Honey. Pour was a flat hazy orange with no bubbles or head. Taste was way too sweet. Candi sugar, strong sticky honey and bubble gum. Very sticky. Mild carbonation. Tasted like liquid sugar with huge doses of honey.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp, very slightly hazy golden coloured body with a glow of honey and a very thin, faint off-white head. Aroma of yeast, light grass and honey, some caster sugar and a bit of very light spices - fairly mild. Full-bodied; Rich honey flavour with a lot of yeast and bananas and a nice malty bite from wheat and flowers. Aftertaste shows a very polished yeast strain along with some nice sugars from fruit and honey and a subdued but noticeable grass and herb bite. Overall, a nice beer that doesn’t look so great nor smell amazing, but the taste is very elegant and reminiscent of a true belgie with a smooth finish showing relatively good complexity. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Crystal City Wine Shop in Arlington, Virginia on 28-April-2015 for US$3,69 sampled at home in Washington just a few steps away on 25-August-2015.

Bottle. The look is clear, white head, and golden in color. The smell is fruity, sweet, honey, wine, mead, and good. The taste is smoother but lighter not as sweet. Ok. Nothing special.
