3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle/12oz - Pours a hazy darkish amber in color with a small white head that hug around to produce some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma is of fruity yeasts, sweet malts and nutty grains. Flavor is slightly sweet... the Belgian yeast is noticeable and welcome... adds some fruity esters. Nutty grains still come through. Lingering sweetness. Surprisingly good...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours brilliantly clear orange/gold with a small white head that falls quickly.
Light malt aroma.
The flavor is lightly sweet with just enough hop bitterness to balance.
Pretty simple, uncomplicated beer. Good lawnmower beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle into New Belgium stemware. Slightly hazy, deep amber, bordering on red hue. Thinnish head that doesn’t want to stick around. Aroma of super-fruity Belgian funk, some penny, some 5-cent fruit-shaped candy. Palate feels slightly watery. Flavor lacks depth. In some ways reminiscent of oversweet homebrews I’ve had. Like an abbey dubbel lite.

Had the beer on draft and it seemed a little undercarbonated. Aroma had a hint of spice.

Bottle from Liz. Pours amber with a creamy white head. LIght spicy aroma, hint of nut. Med body; foamy carb. It first suggests a pils, then nut and spice pop in. Pretty drinkable beer. Balanced.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 01/06/2012. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, caramel and mild hops. Light body with flavors of bready malt, caramel and lightly bitter hops. The finish is short and malty. Pretty average overall.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled purchased at Total Wine & More (Naples, FL). Poured a small off-white very fizzy head that mostly diminiished. One ring of lacinig, transparent body and a copper hue. The flavor was crisp, hoppy, sweet, fruity, yeasty, some hints of malt, and spicy. The flavor was sweet, malty, hoppy, spicy, and nutty. The mouthfeel was very tingly and this is a light to medium bodied beer. Overall, this is an easy beer to drink and a decent flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Has a clear light amber colour. Not a lot of flavour in this one, some metallic-y citrus, and a little lacking in carbonation.
