I’m becoming a fan of Parkway. This Belgian style ale pours hazy, golden brown with a head that fades and leaves no lace, but a tenacious little ring along the outside. The aroma is the usual for a Belgian; bananas, peaches and mild cloves atop a buttery malt. The flavor brings that malt to the foreground and it closes with a nice, peppery tingle.

Bottle from the last local swap - thanks! Pours hazy amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is grass, pepper, wheat, spices. Flavor is a bit odd, actually. Medium sweet, peppery, wheat. Medium body.

Clear golden color out of the bottle with a short lived white head. Nose of yeast, clove and some bubblegum. Lots of spice flavor with clove and the above referenced pear and banana. Strong yeast flavors. Nice beer.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Orange-golden, little to no head, and quite quiet. This has a musty edge, and drinks with a bit of a yeasty undertow, but it comes across as "off" more than "Belgian" IMHO, with a under-ripe pear flavor being dominate. (#5186, 7/30/2013)

Serving: Draft at Pizzeria Paradiso – Old Town. It pours a hazy gold color with a small white head. The nose is light with a little dough, fruity, and floral notes. The flavor has a hint of banana, florals, and raw dough with a touch of sweetness. Overall very mild.
