3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at naked city brewing. Supposed to be a slightly more belgian style than the DeSantis, but it was still a bit too sour for my tastes.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. draft @ Naked City. Delicious little abbey-style brown ale tastes smooth with a slight fruity tang in the finish. Tastes like a weak brown ale brewed with Belgian yeast which makes an interesting combination, but is ultimately unmemorable. Doesn’t smell like much and it was too dark to accurately define the color.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dull light brown with no head. The aroma is light, but fruity (apricot, cherry). Sweet, fruity and phenolic. Clean - no yeast. But it is not coming together, just an aimless mishmash of flavours.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Naked City. Pours an slightly hazed walnut brown with a touch of a ruby tint and a small egg shell white head. Lightly sweet with vanilla, touch of banana and cherry bubblegum. Bubblegum, wheat bread, pepper, touch of red apple skin with the pepper bittering lingering on the end. Body may be a bit thin and the carb a little much to take away from the flavors, but this isn’t a style I have drank a ton of.
