3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle. Pours a cloudy dirty yellow amber with a medium head of white foam. Medium carbonation with plenty of lacing. Aroma is tart and bready, with light spices. Crisp, clean, refreshing taste. Light bready yeast with a hint of tart citrus. Body feels a little thin and watery. Flavor is not bold enough. Enjoyable but just a tad too light.

Bright clear gold beer, tidy pale cream colour head. Palate is light, dry and has decent fine carbonation. Dry malts. Spice. Banana esters. Bright dried fruits. More spice in the light dry finish. Spicy linger. Wants something else to hold it all together.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is dusty, banana, malt, yeast, barnyard. Appearance is dark golden, hazy, white head. Taste is banana, clove, sharp, tropical fruit, pine. Mouthfeel is light to medium body, light crisp carbonation, dusty barnyard and sharp banana aftertaste. Overall, on the low end of Belgian Ales for me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 25, 2016 Draft at Bru Craft. Very hazy golden yellow pour with a a slim but lasting bit of off-white foam. Slightly tart. Slightly funky. Lots of lemony peachy herbal flavors going on. Slight spicy hop bite. Unexpectedly full body. Thinking the strong Belgium yeast works against this one. It is the only element that feels out of place.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a very cloudy, unfiltered, almost wheat beer, golden color. Little white head. Okay retention, poor lacing.
Aroma is lemon, bready, barely banana, but some. White pepper maybe....
Taste is yeasty bread crust. Coriander heavy, pretty sweet. Low hops. Very malty. I also taste some vanilla. I also taste some bubble gum on the finish, perhaps.
Mouthfeel is full bodied. It’s heavy, but doesn’t feel like it, because of its smoothness and flavor. Higher ABV, and it’s hard to tell it.
Overall, I like this. Most beers of this type, have a sour banana flavor, that I don’t like. This is different, which makes me think this may not be exactly true to style. Still, having said that, it’s delicious. I would recommend it, and buy it again.

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a thin white head. It has a spicy, zesty citrus flavour with vanilla, lemon and earthy notes. Very good.
