3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured this from a bomber into an imperial pint glass, foregoing my New Holland High Gravity Series tulip since it only holds eleven ounces and I was not sharing. It settles well, with a typical white ale cloudiness and pillow like white head. The aroma is mostly spice, coriander in particular, with resinous hop undertones. It is difficult to detect much else behind the strong spiciness, which also overwhelms the taste. The mouth feel is creamy and soft, presumably from the oats. While I do not plan to revisit this year’s edition, I may try it again next year in case the spice is dialed back.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated hazy dark orange brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mild citrus mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of mild hops and malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Tap @ Taphouse at Ghent - Norfolk: What I like about this one is that they did their Belgian yeast thing, but then they put enough hops into it where it all just stays there in a big pile of uniqueness and tasty flavors. Very nice. Thank you New Holland for all you do for Michigan and the rest of us who don’t live there.
