3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at the brewery. Pours a cloudy pale straw blonde color with a small but lasting white head. Notes of sweet and bready malts, very mellow spices (coriander? clove?), apricot, and sugar. Light-medium bodied, with a malty, sweet mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Belgian blonde ales rarely do much for me but I really dug this one. Really hit all the right notes.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample on tap. Clear golden yellow color. Good creamy off-white head, leaves good lace. Banana aroma, with a good bready malt backbone, just a light belgian funk. Kind of makes me think of a weizenbock. Bigger body, smooth lighter carbonation. Lightly sweet, light tart taste to it, too. Smooth, drinkable, tasty ale
