4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear golden with a generous foamy white head. Nose has a lot of yeasty peppery esters, with a backing aroma of Saaz hops and brie cheese. Flavor is peppery and grassy at the start with a clean but assertive Saaz hops and pale cereal tone, relinquishing into a semi-dry and clean biscuity malt and dusty finish. Ends with a quiet grassy/peppery hop twang. Very nice.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft. Pours a hazy, very pale golden with a thin eggshell head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves soft floral notes, spice, belgian yeast, dust, and honey. Fairly sweet flavor, lightly tart, with a fair bitterness. Lighter side of medium bodied, slightly oily and syrupy, pretty actively carbed and tingly, with drying long yeasty spice finish. An enjoyable brew, nice balance of complexity and refreshment.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aroma is fruity esters with a hint of a tripel ale. Maybe it’s all the same. As the foam recedes it smells much like a very floral tripel. Med body or better. Flavor is surprisingly light - not much like a tripel now - there’s fruit ester, and some very earthy floral hop. Even getting a little bubble gum. Complex for a "light" ale. Finishes dry and earthy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden yellow with a nice ivory head. Sweet fruit, mostly apple and pear, dominates the aroma, which has a malty undertone and floral hints. Flavor starts with a malty core and adds fruity, floral and subtle yeasty notes on a somewhat sweet and slightly hoppy taste. Smooth texture has OK thickness and fizz. Like flowers in your mouth? Get on the outside of a crater.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at home. Pour is hazy golden colored with a big white head and great lacing. Musty, peppery, grassy, somewhat doughy, straw, fruity, lemon peel, citrusy, and honeycomb aroma. Taste is earthy, bright, floral, clean and crisp. Other fruity notes, lemons, hibiscus, clove, pepper, grass, biscuit, crackers and dough with a dry spicy finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Very crisp, floral, yet clean and flawless. There is this noble hop like characteristic that makes it so bright and easy to drink yet the Belgian yeast adds so many layers of complexity. Really nice stuff.
