3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. a great looking glowing gold beer with cloudiness under a whipped white head. big herbal, grassy, vanilla, yeasty aroma. flavors of lemon, grass, band-aid phenols, plastic, hay, white grapefruit and pineapple. the phenols are acceptable in the style, however, quite obnoxious in this one which is my only turn off here...otherwise its almost perfect. it has a great refreshing, hoppy note with a high effervescence.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. I love me some floral beers, and Ommegang did a good job with this one. Great on the nose, great on the tongue. You know the deal. Good hops, may have been better if it was a wee bit stronger.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale pour with a thin head. Full mouth. Some copper in the taste. Hoppy backbone. Very easy to drink and overall a fairly nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed blonde ale with a thickk lacing frothy head. In aroma, a smoth fruity malt with grassy citrusy hops, and light solvent. In mouth, a sweet fruity malt with orange pulp, grassy hops, coriander, decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Lightly hazy yellow color with a huge, frothy, white head. The aroma is immense citrus notes, bread dough, herbal hops, and some light grains. The flavor is citrusy sweetness up front, with a nice hop bite. Good, clean finish. The body is very light, and the mouthfeel is lightly acidic. Light carbonation. Overall, this is a light, refreshing, and very drinkable beer. Complex enough to ponder while you drink, but still very sessionable.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Looks promising with hazy orange yellow pour big white head some retention. Aroma of steel and grassy hops some yeast some tart some pepper. Tastes of passionfruit coming off the hops, yeasty briney peppery kick and tart dry finish. Some creamy lactic mouthfeel on the end. Perfect lighter than moderate carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12-oz. Pours a slightly hazy lemony golden with an enormous surging sudsy platinum blonde head that makes you think beforehand if you want a nice pour. Decent lacing. Nose is light floral in a spicy way, but overridden with a fair bit of mustiness that’s somewhere between a very light basementy funk and a more corked quality. Would be a higher score if I could have decided which it was. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Sweetly spicy floral notes on the mid palate, along with some honey and mint. Mild finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Nose is beautifully yeast, sweet and floral, earthy and organic hops. Pale light neon yellow body with a soapy bright white head and tons of carbonation. Taste is very dry and medium-strongly bitter with floral and yeasty tones, faint bread, lovely lovely (aged?) noble hops. Belgian yeast is the character-driver here, subtle fruit, a little burn, black pepper, spice, great complexity. Medium-full body from the carb. Refreshing and quite effervescent!
