3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
750. bottle- Pours cloudy straw yellow with a nice large 3 finger white head and good lace. Aroma is banana, clove, Belgian yeast. Taste is very Belgian, that unique flavor that only Belgian ales (and the clones) have, very yeasty. The body is medium, carbonation is lively, bubbles dancing on the tongue like champagne. Overall very good, but can’t match the greats (Delerium Tremens, Duvel, Rochefort).

Tap @ Max and Joes Omaha. Slightly hazy, light blonde appearance with a pearl white head. Fairly floral hoppy, light citrusy, pale malty nose. Floral, bitter hoppiness (like a heineken), mild orange citrusy, light belgian yeasty flavor. Not bad but there are better options.
