Shared with kristen, james and veronica. Clear golden pour. Kristen also REALLY liked this beer. Belgian candi sugar and lightly yeasty. A little alcohol on the nose. Not burning. Thought this was Blonde Fat Ale. Pretty good.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a nice big tight head with larger than normal bubbles. The aroma is plenty of bread yeast with some nice banana fruitiness and a bit of spice. The flavor follows but the banana is more defined and the spiciness is less so. There is some nice lemon zest and a mild balancing bitterness with a nice enough alcohol character.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Shorts Burger & Shine. Poured a hazy yellow-light orange color with a white head. Very fragrant. I smelled it from across the table without bringing up to my nose. Lots of banana, cereal grain, and a squeeze of lemon. Light to medium bodied and slightly sweet with a bit of citrus-type acidity. Moderate carbonation. The flavor profile followed the aroma; banana, lemon zest, and mixed cereal grains.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2013 12 oz stubby bottle left behind at my New Years party by a neighbor. The pour is mostly clear golden yellow, with a one inch white head that falls with no lacing. The aroma is straw, malt sweetness, and an herbal yeast Tripel nose. The taste is the herbal straw, round full sweet malt, more of the herbal, and light banana clove yeast. The palate is medium to light bodied, fairly low carbonation with the yeast notes lingering in the aftertaste. Alcohol is decently masked.

On tap at peace tree. Cloudy flaxen color. Nice initial large head with great retention. Initial sulphorous yeasty aroma that gives way to a very blegian lemony scent. Palate is slightly fizzy. The hops provide a nice medium citrus bitterness throughout. Key lime finish. Quite good.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a hazy glowing amber golden body with a crisp clean white head. The beer has a vibrancy that’s really nice. The aroma is pineapple, yeasty bananas, light cloves, with a light clean fruity hop aroma. The flavor is yeasty bready malts with a pineapple, cloves, and plantains. Almost like a citrus hop in there. The palate is medium bodied and pretty carbonated. Subtle alcohol warming. Pretty good velvety texture with a long sweet finish.

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.

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.
