3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It seems no one in their reviews can quite agree what the fruit is in the nose - I am not sure but it seems to be pears and/or apples. Also a little candy and yeasty twang. Full retained head, leaves a touch of soapy lacing. Yes hazy. Taste is right on, a bit of hop grit in the background and at the finish, but it plays a secondary and balancing role. Mouthfeel is playful, quite a tang of small bubble carbonation, The feel when rolling it around is thick and oily. This is a really well made beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Smelled really good; consisted of Belgian yeast, light citrus and other fruit as well as bread dough. Pours a hazy golden yellow. Didn’t taste quite as strong as the aromas were. Finishes bitter with a slight tartness from the yeast. Certainly a good beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with long lasting white foamy head. Welcome to Belgium! Aromas of toasted biscuit, yeast, Belgian sugar, some pear, but not much for hops. Lighter to medium body. Seemed a tad thin. Toasted bread, yeast, light spice all in the flavor with a mildly dry finish but not incredibly hopped up bitterness. Very nice but not quite as exciting as one from a Belgian Abbey.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I have to admit I have been holding this bottle for awhile, which isn’t a good idea with hop forward type beers, however, this beer is an exception. Beer pours cloudy to the point of occlusion, golden color with a prodigious egg white colored head that is totally retained. Big grassy aroma with earth and dough. Taste is bitter and in quite a good way. This is a delicious beer that I would be glad to experience again.
