3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Healthy orange, very effervescent and slightly cloudy pour with a few inches of offwhite head. Strong citrus and creamy aroma, zesty rind and belgian yeast aroma, strong lemon, pepper and clove, fresh sawed cedar. Lively carbonation, mouthfeel is lighter and fluffy, dry crisp finish. Taste is overall strong grain and belgian yeast; lemon, peppercorn, grain bill is robust with barley and wheat presence, cantelope, hints of rye. Really nice zesty robust belgian.

Very malty, caramel aroma. Pours a nice hazy orange color and foamy head on the pour. To taste you pick up the malts, banana, caramel, rye malts and dark fruits. Lingers nicely on the palate. Classic Belgian style beer.

Pours hazy orange with a huge foamy, wash-cycle white head. Yeast-forward profile with a fruity, banana, persimmon aroma and taste. Very marshmallow mouth feel. Overall, a nicely balanced Belgian, like drinking a wispy cloud.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle into shaker. Cloudy gold orange with big foamy off white head. Some settled yeast on the bottle of the bottle, got poured into the glass and stayed suspended. Smell is heavy on grains and Belgian yeast. Taste is more of the same, very grainy, very Belgian. Palate is smooth and creamy. Really nice beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pint on tap. Hazy amber-copper with a ring of cream. Nose is toffee, dark bread and spicy orange. Tastes of the same nice mix with some apple butter and earthy toasted grain. Near-medium body is to the sweet side but balanced by a dry finish. Medium carbonation suits the big maltiness.
