3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Parkway, billed as an Abbey Ale. Cloudy gold pour with a short white head with excellent retention and leaving moderate lace. Nose is all Belgian malt with some light spices, but very balanced. Medium body and moderate carbonation, this being the major missing element: carbonation should be fine and sharp, if not vigorous and even creamy. Bananas, a bit of bubblegum, lemon and coriander. Very refreshing and enjoyable, another solid ale from Odin. Remains to be seen what category it belongs in, but a great summer ale.

Draft: advertised on tap list as a Belgian dubbel, however showed up a golden blonde. Aroma is fruity. Taste is fruit, grain, and hops. I added this as a Belgian ale, but they could have been trying for a Belgian style IPA.
