3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale amber with foamy white head and active carbonation. Aroma is moderately yeasty with wet wheat malt, light vanilla and spice, orange cream, and mild mixed citrus. Flavor is orange peel and coriander that fades to wheat malt and a lightly tangy, citrus finish. Moderate dry finish with lingering orange cream soda. Prickly, dry carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Just a bit of thin lacy head on the light orange pour. Light citrus nose with a yeasty bready taste that ends with citrus peel and coriander. Pretty sweet/salty aftertaste too. Would be best on a hot day

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Pale golden with no head. Sweet floral orange blossom and cognac-like aroma. Tastes somewhat like grand marnier with a sweet grain finish. Not bad.

Poured a frothy head on an orange-ish beer. Aroma is muted but I detect a Belgian yeast quality and a hint of vanilla. The taste is very smooth and the alcohol does not show up at all. Well masked. Again a slight vanilla note in the taste with a slight citrus note next to it. Did not catch the Bergamot which is a shame because I like that flavor.

Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a medium, frothy white head, medium-short retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is stale farmhouse cheese, sugary wet grains, pear and apricot fruity esters, and a faint aroma of old, dirty hops. Flavor is sweet steeped grains and straw malt, light hops and bitterness, gently rotting peaches and a lightly sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great yeast taste. Strange mix of egg and grape kind of funk to it. Really refreshing semi sweet. Clean and focused.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bomber. Pours mellow yellow with some haziness and a light dissipating head. Nose is sugary sweetness with hints of citric and yeast-not promising. Taste is sugary sweet, with some butter and syrupy flavors. This is not a biere de garde-it’s much too sweet with a cloying sugary hangover. Dry-ha!!! The only thing that’s dry is my glass after this drainpour. Sad. It’s difficult to believe that the brewery that put out one of the best Belgian style ales with La Folie would even put their name on this beer.
