3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle.
Pours hazy golden color with a small, rapidly dissipating head. Aroma is sour with apricot and sweetish with caramel, mild yeast notes, herbs and some earthy notes. Quite fruity, even juicy flavor, sourness is quite mild though, faint toffee, yeast and herbs also. Medium carbonation, alcohol is hidden. Decent.

(25.4 FL.OZ) Cool cork top and the label art reminds me of drinking with friends. so already good. The beer itself is really good. very drinkable and has a pretty good buzz that comes on fairly well. little to no hangover. One issue I had with it was that it is a pretty foamy beer so watch your pouring. definitely one of my favorites.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very clear. Light fuzzy furriness. Head dies quickly. Does little for me. Thin. Lacks substance. Like some type of joke.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the big bottle. Pours clear, smells delicious. Tastes like a subdued Damnation, without that final tinge that makes me love Damnation so much. But don’t get me wrong, this is a delicious Belgian Style Golden Ale. I can’t get into better detail than all those before me have. Just know, it’s a solid buy. Big fan.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beautiful golden pour w/ a big frothy white head that leaves a nice ring of lacing. The aroma has a very good scent of Belgian yeast & spice. The taste hits w/ spice upfront & then finishes slightly watery & a little bitter. It’s a tad too thin on the palate but overall drinkable & a decent brew!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 mL bottle poured into a Belgian tulip. The nose is a pleasant aromatic blend of sweet, fleshy stone fruits, apple cider, sour white grape, an abundant floral blend, and lemon. The floral note does have some metallic-like hints in there, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt and call it spicy.The appearance is a dull, slightly hazy yellow with a light, unstable, foamy white head that recedes quickly. A tiny patch of white fuzz in the center remains with a barely held together ring around the edge. The lace is runny and leaves a clean glass. The taste is a pleasant blend of medium levels of sweet, with a medium light bitter finish accompanied by a slight sour touch. Moderate amounts of soft, fizzy carbonation give the medium bodied beer a light, creamy texture. The tongue is first introduced to the sweetness and finishes with a dry, spicy floral note. This gives way to a fruity, sugary juice aftertaste which lingers, but very light and mellow.
