3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz Bottle, purchased at Warehouse Liquors - Duluth, MN. My first Iowa tick! Warm banana, spice, and cooked fruit aroma. Clean. Flavors are good. Light sweetness, good mineral profile, light clove and herb presence. Dry. A little on the rubbery side of the Belgian phenols for me, but this isn’t bad. Glad I got the chance to try it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle thanks to pepsiedcan. Pours a sort of hazy copper color with a thin, nearly nonexistent white head of foam. Aroma is sweet and candied. Some corn comes through in the aroma, but not in the taste. Taste is sweet. Candy notes come through as well. Overall a very sweet beer with some interesting complexities.

This was terrible. I understand what they were trying to do with the Belgian yeast, but it was too much. The tasted infected. More medicine than that pleasant belgian funk. Barely choked this one down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
$3 bottle in mixed pack from the brewery, July 2011. This one poured a much more behaved head than the previous bottled Peace Trees. Just bubbles up and dwindles quickly, like a Belgian fizzy beer. Yellow with a golden center, bit of haze from the yeast from the bottle. Slightly sweet, but more malty in the nose. Taste is again a little sugary, but there’s some German hops there for an attempt at balance. Slightly yeasty aftertaste. A small note of horseblanket hop and yeast character.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours light cloudy amber with next to no head. Dusty yeast, light tropical fruitiness, medium pale malt, and light spicing. Taste is sticky sweet and fruity, with a bit of oniony dankness and a sharp, boozy, oaky finish. Slick and sticky body.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Phone rate. Draught @ el Bait Shop. Clear amber, small white head fading to a thin ring rather quickly. Aroma of banana and pale grain, fairly dry with some alcohol. Flavor has moderate fruity yeast with a bit of band aid notes, husky grain. Very well attenuated, finishes dry with a tinge of banana and grape notes, alcohol not masked too well. Bitterness peaked at a 1-2. Light to mod prickly carbonation with a medium body. OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the Schlafly ROP 2013. It poured a cloudy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of lemons, some dry yeasts, and some ripe rotting fruit. The taste was of lemons, dry Belgian malts, not hot despite a higher ABV. Very good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the extremely awesome CanIHave4Beers. Pours deep, clear golden with a fleeting white head. Nose is grainy and boozy; some banana and lemon zest, as well as some honey. Sweet bread. Taste adds some floral and grassy hop notes. Palate is a bit prickly.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle provided by Ed Roberts. Not a whole lot going on in this beer. Has a sweet aroma with subtle hints of candy sugar and wheat. It was a very nice contrast though to all the big stouts we were consuming.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Love the stubby 12oz bottle that I poured into a smaller Corsendonk goblet glass. Extra point for the cool bottle. The beer is unfiltered with sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Thus, the pour provides a cloudy golden body, cannot see through it but still radiates. Small head does not stick around for long. Aroma is moderate banana and pear esters with some sweet candy and mild dough from the yeast. A bit sweeter than I want it but still within my range of acceptability. I think I get a little bit of pilsner malt in the aroma particularly. Flavor is lower on the sweetness and esters and a bit higher on the doughiness with a little bit of bitterness at the end to round it off. Nice medium body, very drinkable. Sweet aftertaste. Very nice beer especially for the price. On the sweeter side and I would like a bit more carbonation. Underrated on RB.
