Bottle from City Beer. Pours golden with a nicely laced off-white head and a citrus and toffee aroma. There is a tasty caramel malt flavor with a definite Belgian yeast presence, notably some banana ester, and a bitter hoppy finish. A nice collaboration.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. First, let me say that this is a pretty cool name for a beer. Then, I must say that, in general I have not been excited by Palo Alto beers. Thus I approach this with some trepidation. It pours a cloudy amber with floaties and a small creamy off-white head that dissipates with decent, not nice, lacing. Oh oh. Aroma is very typical of the style, belgian yeast with a bit of citrus, biscuit, honey. Flavor is about the same, very lightly sweet, yeast and citrus dominate, a bit earthy. Actually quite nice. Good job, PA!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from City Beer. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger off-white head. Aroma of citrus and soft light pitted fruit with some caramel notes. Full bodied (til the carb leaves). It’s citrous, Belgian yeast/spice (tho not getting banana ester), and quite decently bitter. It does lace a bit. It is indeed quite smooth, and it does finish bitter and dry. It’s a very nice beer, it is.
