3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft poured into a goblet. Pours a dark orange with some dark white head. Aroma of grains, a little citrus and some spices. Taste is about the same. I really don’t get any rye whatsoever. Overall, good but not great. I would drink it again, but I wouldn’t seek it out.

Hazy medium orange amber. Large fluffy, creamy white head. Wheaty aroma with a little spicy grain. Medium body, smooth and creamy. Flavor is also wheaty with more spicy grain/rye than aroma, some citrus. Finishes a light rye spice, light to moderate earthy/grassy bitterness Come together really nicely.. Very enjoyable.

Beautiful, beautiful pour. Hazy amber with a huge , fluffy white head and lots of dancing bubbles. Taste is (obviously) heavy on the grains with a long finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy amber orange with a big and dense ivory head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet honey and bread crust, clove and grain. Taste is malt driven with bread crust and grain but also has some marmalade sweetness. Some clove character and floral hop flavor along with an earthiness and nice rye spiciness in the finish. Finishes semi dry and spicy. Mouthfeel is creamy with amedium body and carbonation. The grains, hops and yeast all add lavors that blend well. Drinkable and would try again.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice golden haze poured into the tulip glass, large white head that leaves great lacing. Aroma of toast, some tropical fruit, maybe some banana from the yeast, flavor is similar with the addition of rye spice that in the beginning is a welcome addition, but by the end is cloying and gets in the way. Finish is largely typical Belgian ale with its sugars that could be better balanced.
