3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Originally reviewed: 12/29/09. Had a bottle of this at my brother’s house in WI. Poured into a pint glass. Pours a very hazy light gold. Nice off-white head on top. Retained well, left some nice lace on the side. Very crisp body which is par for the style. I’m not the biggest fan of that feel. A little harsh. Big yeast scent mixed with some pineapple. Flavors of sour yeast, citrus, and a mild bready flavor on the finish. This was not as sharp as I expected. It was drinkable and tasty. Glad I had the opportunity.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. First reviewed 9/5/2011. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tulip. Found this one tucked away, may as well give it a go.
This pours an iridescent golden color with a small off white head. Initially just a bit of foam, this fades rather quickly and noticeably leaves no lace.
Muscat grapes, biscuity malt, and a bit of champagne yeast.
The biscuity malt is noticeable, setting the table for what could be a complex set of flavors. White grapes and a bit of green apple provide the fruit flavors, and a bit of spicy yeast leads into a slightly grassy ending. The finish is a little boozy, actually, which was surprising.
The body is on the light to medium side, starting sweet and becoming a little dry by the end. The carbonation is crisp despite a light grainy texture.
I thought this was an interesting take on the style, but nothing about it really draws me in or keeps my interest.

Bottle pours gold with a white head. Aroma is doughy and estery with notes of cotton candy, banana, clove, lemon, and light florals. Flavor shows the same with a good deal of lightly sweet pale malt, somewhat grainy as well as some doughy belgian yeast. Overall body is light to moderate, with light to moderate sweetness, and a lightly bitter/spicy finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is banana, wheat, yeast, bisquit. Appearance is a typical yellow pilsner hue, crystal clear. Taste is first hit with a wheat and yeast flavor with a slightly clove, banana, and lemon finish. Palate is medium carbonation in average finish is long and lingering. Very good Abbey style ale, definitely belgian and a must try! Would have again, summer thirst quencher.

a decent Belgium ale. Nice mix of hops and a solid malt backbone. Not an everyday beer for me but decent from time to time.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.
