3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Oregon Brewers Festival, Portland, OR. White head that mostly lasted, spotty lacing, no visible carbonation, hazy, and a straw hue. Nose was malty, lightly hoppy, crisp, coriander, fruity, and a hint of spicyness. Ditto for the flavor. Smooth mouthfeel. Very, very quaffable, nicely done, quite tasty, and I definitely would partake in this brew again if it were to come my way. Absolutely worthy of a try!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A light colored Belgian strong ale. Slightly sour and crisp with bright spicy notes. Great complex finish with lots of fruitiness from malts and yeast. The hops give it a unique PNW feel, too.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a hazy and a fair lacing. The aroma was floral bready musty mild hop and fruity. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt hops fruity and floral. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: JAN 22, 2009 A very nice crisp belgian style golden. Coriander and a good hop balance allow this beer to be strong while being very refreshing. Like a saison with no wild funky yeast.
