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.

Draft at Quinn’s, Capitol Hill, Seattle. Bright yellow, creamy white foam. Pretty in a goblet. Slight sweet yeasty aroma. Mild body, tame profile. Some sweet and dry finish. Alright.

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.
