3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint at taproom/brewpub in Menomonie, Wisconsin. Consumed on 8-15-15. Pours a pale blonde to straw color. Mostly clear. Slight haze, but it may be a chill haze. Smooth, creamy, even, nearly white head. Light effervescence. Looks good. Strong, fruity aroma features scents of orange, green grape, and golden raisin. Nice, dry, Belgian golden ale flavor. Apricot. Fruity yet hoppy in taste. A hint of lemon and minerals in the finish. Easy to drink. Lively and frothy in the palate. Light to medium body. Likable beer. Nothing special but solid. This is a decent to pretty good beer; I’m a tough reviewer.

Aroma is Belgian yeast, lemons and spices. The flavor spices, citrus/lemons and an earthy/slightly dirty finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
750ml corked bottle. Hazy unfiltered pale yellow-tan. Foamy white head laces the glass. Very tasty. Easy medium body. Dry spicy noble hops, grassy and resinous. Zesty flowery freshness, smooth clean golden malt with a pleasant balancing light yeastiness, and a orange-lemon rind twang. All about the balance. Great beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a white head. Really pronounced spice aroma of coriander and white pepper. Pale malt sweetness, cracker, and some citrus peel. The flavor is a little bit too bitter for my liking. Pepper spiciness, some bread, cracker, and citrus. A touch of grass, yeast, and a touch of banana.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
5/13/13. 750mL from CLevar! WHAT A FUCKEN CHAMP! Hazy golden orange pour with a small khaki head that cuts in half, fades fast, but laces well. Doughy pale malts, some candi sugar, etc. on the aroma. Dry malty flavor, plenty of pale malts, doughiness, some sweetness and sugar, but mostly dry bitterness. High carbonation. Not bad!
