Cloudy blond color, compact head. Mild aroma, some balance of spice and fruit. Smooth mouthfeel, good body, a bit too much yeast in my glass, quite strong bitterness. But well brewed.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, Whole Foods Honolulu. Hazy blonde. Aroma is fairly footy yeast character. Palate is similar, but with a light fruitiness and gentle pale malt character. Overall, I prefer the brett version, because it brings extra dimensions of complexity. The yeastiness here is a bit stale/old, wonder if the beer sat on it too long.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Bine & Vine. Starts with a huge gushing. All over the place. Pours hazy orange gold with an infinite foamy white head. Aroma is earthy with aspects of orange and light pitted fruit. Full bodied. Foamy carb. (foam keeps coming from the bottle). Flavor is very barnyard with lots of light type fruit. Finishes dry and earthy/barnyard. Spicy Belgian. It’s excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
We’ve got a gusher...the beer itself is a hazed golden orange color with a very large white head. A nice fruitiness on the nose, mostly tropical fruit type notes. Bread and cracker malts give it some substance and there is a lot of yeast in the aroma as well. The flavor isn’t quite as good as I would hope. It’s somewhat boozy and there’s a little bit of cardboard and metal to it. Still, some grass, fruit, malt, and even a little bit of spice, which are pleasant characteristics.
