3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt and a touch of yeast on the nose fruity. Medium bodied, soft malt and wheat, a bit of light fruity malt. Smaller than the nose suggests in terms of body and flavor, very subtle. Slow musk and a bit of fruity yeast, but: mostly fades into nothing pretty quickly, just faint esters sticking around on the finish.

Great looking. Taste a little earthy and dry, but overall a great fit for a Ultra burger at Quinn's Pub.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery. Clear golden, string head retention. Thick golden color, clear. A thicker beer in flavor, just chewy. A bit sweet malts, but very subdued. Not estry. Thick, not refreshing but good Belgian.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Odin Tap Room. Clear golden beer with white foam. Super phenolic and spicy nose, though there is a lot of banana to it as well. Some hint of golden apple and perhaps a slight celery root note to the flavor? Some white pepper and a whole lot of bread. Big time doughy note, but not the good kind. A bit of a let down.

Tap at Quinns in Seattle. Orval type glass. Gold with white head that doesn’t last but good lacing. Sweet and light Belgian flavor. Thin body. Could have had more depth but solid.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
