2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Growler... RBWG 2013... Pours lightly hazed and light yellow with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is bursting at-the-seams with spiciness – overbearing notes of clove and coriander. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly sweet and loaded with clove spiciness. Lengthy, spicy finish. I could have lived without that overbearing, clove-like phenol. I’m no fan of that. Growler courtesy of ygtbsm94!

Growler during RBWG. Pours a cloudy gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is fruity malt, dough, clove. Medium mouth with doughy malt, strong Belgian yeast, light bitterness, good.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours hazy golden and has a faint aroma of spices. Taste is a little under carbonated and seemed a little umbalanced. Lots of sweet banana and spice flavor, but somehow a little watery at the same time.

Total Wine, Fairfax twelve ounce: Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is bready with slight fruit. This does not seem like a belgian ale to me. Seemed more like an english blinde. Meh.

12 oz bottle. (Mr. Bill’s) Roanoke, VA.
Slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head.
Belgian yeast, bready malt, sweetness, mild hops and some spices in the aroma. Not bad. The flavour is a bit more straight forward with yeast, mild bitterness, some sweetness and malt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Blonde golden coloured body with the slightest haze and a thin, one centimetre off-white head. Aroma of very light malt, some yeast and rice notes and a little floral hoppiness - not much though. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong malt flavour with some subdued sweetness, a hint of cardboard and staleness and a little hop touch at the end. Aftertaste shows some nice sweetness from honey and fruit and very little else aside from the malt. Overall, a decent light beer with an okay profile, but no real complexity and depth. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Arrowine in Arlington, Virginia after a hockey game on 13-November-2013 - Thanks Kev!
