3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy yellow from the can with thin white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is sweet buttery grass and bready malt. Taste follows, a lot more grass and less bread, slightly bitter. Meh, at least there is no hint of the booze. A little bit of oxidation in there with the butter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
11/22/13. Been wanting to try this for a while! Pours cloudy straw-gold with a thick, fluffy white head. Aroma is wheat, citrus, farmyard sour, grass, banana, earth, spicy, hint of bubblegum, Belgian Yeast. Taste is clean, crisp, fruity, herbal, some bitter fruit rind, Belgian yeast is ever present, simple, nice; finish is bitter fruit rind and Belgian yeast. This is a fine Belgian style from (from someone not partial to the style). Beautiful lacing. Medium carbonation. Full but wet, liquid mouth feel; not coating. Really tasty, nice. VERY enjoyable!

Hazy golden color, thin white head with good lacing on the glass. Some witbier characteristics with lots of spices, Belgian-style yeast, and orange peel. A bit of caramel and lots of bready malts to fill out the palate.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Boring pour: transparent yellow-gold with zero head or lace. Sweet Belgian spice and malt join together, providing a more sweetened experience than it should be. Forgettable.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a toasted almond meat hazed ale with a ring of soapy whites with some etched surface. Smells like apricot, white grapes, cracker, some nice sweet citrusy juice. Real awesome nose. Flavor follows through with a good fruity character, some more apricot, pineapple, apple juice, some grain, some nice refined and mature belgian yeast with a clay character. Medium on full bodied with moderately hi carb and a nice wet finish. Fucking A. Real delicious, if I could score this in the PNW, I’d slam it while camping for sure.

(can - 12 oz) Hazy gold pour with a thin white head. Lightly sweet aroma with some mild spice and yeast notes. Sweet malts and spice at the front of the flavor with a peppery yeast finish. Thin and really easy to drink, especially for 8.5%.
