2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light golden color, almost straw, with very little head. Nose is honey and bread. Average mouthfeel. Taste is mostly a yeasty bread, somewhat sour. No noticeable hops, fruit or floral notes. Not in the same league as true Belgians.

Had high hopes for this beer, I enjoy other brews from OSO, but I couldn’t even finish the 6pack... with a friend.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is one of those instances where a brewery tried to do a barrel aged beer and just wound up w/ one that tastes like its been on the shelf to long. This is a slightly tart belgian style which seems like it might have been crisp and refreshing had it went straight into bottles but is instead a bit oxidized and flabby. I guess there is kind of a nutty complexity hear but it comes at a sacrifice of drinkability so, in my opinion, it’s not worth it.

Tasted this on tap at the 8th Street Ale Haus in Sheboygan, Wisconsin so I didn’t get great notes. But it was terrible.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a 1/2 pint taster showing a lightly hazed, orangy gold color, with bubbly, white head foam that reduced fairly quickly to a ring & film, and left some light spots & ribbons as lacing. The aroma was light grain/wheat, with light cracker & biscuit scent, some floral and spice hints with a touch of coriander, light fruit & citrus, and a bit of sweetness. The flavor presented low hop bitterness, light astringency & tartness, a light body, and a spritzy effervescence to project these notes to the palate without becoming watery or thin. Dry, crisp, and nicely sessionable.

Bottle to snifter (thanks kbutler1). Looks good; a hazy orange with white lacing. Smells solid; yeast and citrus. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Clear golden pour with a thin white head. Nose is florals, a bit of mellow oak, light spicing, some plastic, and tropical fruit. Tastes kind of like a hefe--big time tropical fruit and banana notes, a bit of clove, and some dusty yeast covered by more tropical fruit. Slick, medium body, with a touch of carbonation. Very fruity and flavorful, with a bit of sweet stickiness to it.
