3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The color was a nice hazy gold with a large white head. A generous amount of Sazz hops in the aroma...coming off as a tomato/apricot tone (?). The flavor was sweeter than I had expected...bubblegum, fruity...apricots...vegetable mix. The feel was not as crisp and carbonated as I hoped...medium thick soft feel...a tad bit heavy for this style.

Nose of fresh bubblegum. Takes the breath away. Banana and yeast flavors. Sweet and slightly fruity. Decent.

hazy straw/golden yellow, not much head, but lasting thin lace. Yeasty, bubblegum and biscuit nose. Thick mouthfeel, spicy and warming at the end, soft and bubblegummy in the middle. Finish is dry, but lingering biscuit taste lasts a few minutes.

Nice foamy head. Weird stuff. Noy as yeasty as I suspected. Has a bannana flavor to it. Has a strange finish. Something is out of balance. Give me a real belgium beer. Love this brewery hate this beer. Maybe I don't like because I hate bannanas. Any how this is WAY overated.

Floral, malty aroma, with some phenols and some alcohol. Pours cloudy and golden, with a small but dense head. Flavor is sweet, balanced phenol, and alcohol, with a fizzy, slightly hoppy background. Great tail lingers with a good balance. Really fine example of the Belgian Tripel style!
