3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy pearlescent orange. Smells of soap slight smoke and caramelized malt. So sweet and fragrant like a wine. The taste is so overwhelming only at the end do the flavors start to sort themselves out.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear sunset golden with some deep amber at the top with a big creamy beige head. Aroma is light sweet sweet tropical fruit and a bit of caramel malts. Flavor brings pleasant tropical fruits, a hint of tart on the dry ending, and some clean booze bites but so super smooth.

Very nice triple from NB. Sampled at the Beer and bacon festival in Grand Forks. The aromas are great. Sweet belgian candy goodness. The palate is a little weak - but still a solid ale.

Hazy amber pour with a white head. Aromas of fruit and floral notes. Tart flavor at first that mellows to fruity/floral flavors and a nice malt character. Very complex and refreshing. No sign of that 9% abv either. Solid brew.

Tartness compliments the Belgian profiles. Thin and dark in color for the style but pretty balanced for the different ingredients.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Moderate straw for the malt, perfume and lemon for the hops, faint soap for the yeast, with hints of white wine and starfruit. Head is small, fizzy/frothy, off-white with some slippery acing and is almost fully diminishing. Color is clear sparkling amber-bronze. Flavor starts faintly sweet, heavily acidic and sour, then finishes moderately acidic and bitter and again sour. Palate is light to medium, slick with a soft to lively carbonation and a tart finish. Tastes like a sparkling tropical fruit wine.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 22 oz bomber. Sparkling light copper pour, soft medium thick white head with a slight coat of lacing. Aroma has a spicy tinge it with some odd, but pleasant fruitiness (must be Feijoa) which I understand is similar to guava. Flavor has a unique sweet and sour thing going on, some tart syrupy notes, some unique fruitiness that must be feijoa. Thickish mouthfeel. Reminds me of something that Dogfish Head would brew.
