On tap at vine street. Brilliant gold with slight hazy body, with a thin persistent white head. Aroma of toast and pale malt grains. Pleasant volumous body with pale malt tones, sweet light fruity yeast, with gentle hop bitterness. Pretty much a typical gold ale just a little stronger alcohol presence.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazed golden wheat body with a fine-bubbled white head with average retention. heavy candy sugar/juicy fruit/pineapple gum in the nose; med- esters and phenols (mostly clean); strongly bright throughout. mild to medium ginger and white belgian candy sugar up front (med+ sweetness); mild acidity; medium body, lightly prickly white pepper finish. interesting and well-made but the recipe lacks substance - it doesn’t grab my attention, rather it fits right in with what you would expect from american brewers attempting a belgian style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Vine Street - a lovely, understated belgian brew - a bit of crisp, crackery malt and light belgian esters and phenols - the lightest touch of sweetness - a tiny bit of herbal bitterness through the middle - a bit of tartness - light, refreshing, tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear yellow color with a medium thin bone white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Light hops and yeast in the nose. Light body with flavors of yeast, doughy malt and hops. The finish is mildly hoppy with a short yeast aftertaste. A little better than average brew all around.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Snifter @ the brewpub. Very pale golden color. A lightly straw flavor mixed with a lightly doughy Belgian yeast. Simple as that, its light and easy drinking. The Belgian yeast is apparent but not overtaking the beer, which is very light in character. Very much in the style of an Abbey SIngle, I wish more people could pull of a good light Belgian Ale.
