3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle:   Straw in color, somewhat cloudy, moderate to large frothy white head, sticky lacing.   Funk
on the nose, almost seems like Brett.   Otherwise pale breadiness, slightly floral and grassy.   Soft
funkiness on the tongue, pale breadiness, even softer grass.   Does have a Bretty aspect.   Clean, slightly
tart, but could use a touch more sweetness.   I actually like this one more than most.   Seems more Belgian
like than many others brewed stateside.   Body and mouthfeel are full to moderate.   Finishes quick, clean,
but almost too quick.   Just needs to be a bit more tart and I think it would be DY-NO-MITE!

Ne Goeien Saison
2008 bottle. Thanks to my brother in law Ryan. Cheers! Pors murky gold with a thick white head and good retention. Aroma is grassy with notes of pears and other fruits without the requisite sweetness. A little spicy. Flavor is bone dry and tangy with good citrus notes and a spicy quality. Highly drinkable

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2008 Bottle via Footbalm - thanks Eric. First glass pours a clear golden color with an inch of bubbly white head. Lots of bubbles. Nose is fresh and clean. Spicey florals, grassey, malts, and straw. Very approachable scent. The mouthful is smooth and full-bodied. A little fruit comes forth, seems like apples. A little more straw, some grain, florals, and grass. Maintains a nice malty sweetness and the apple stays in the mix. Some florals bitters. Works well together and very good overall.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750ml bottle into a Lost Abbey glass...Thanks to Sean for popping this Sunday...Pours a light gold, not very appealing, a very foamy head, great retention, light lacing...Super sweet aroma, its all honey with a light hop finish...Taste is similarly sweet all honey, almost to the point of distracting and makes it tough to drink, especially in the summer when I want something a little refreshing, especially at 5.5%. There is a light hoppy bite on the finish. This is not easy to drink, too sweet.
I wouldn’t recommend trading for this, but I’d probably drink it again.
