3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a frothy, soapy off-white head about four centimetres thick and literally a zillion small bubbles rising from the bottom. Aroma of fresh grassy and herbal hops, yeast, pepper, herbs, barnyardie funk and some nice mellow malt - very nice and complex. Medium-bodied; Strong dry and grassy hop flavours up front with some mellow yeast, a touch of light earthy malt and a bit of biscuits tucked inside some herbs. Aftertaste shows a very light and herbal note, some light hop bitterness, but mainly a dry, airy and subtle flavour - nothing overwhelming and nothing too great, actually. Overall, a decent beer, but not showing enough complexity on the finish to be great - the smell is there and complex, but dies after the nose. After sampling too many good belgies in ~2 weeks in Belgium, being home for less than a week made me underappreciate this beer - it’s good, but simply doesn’t compare with real belgies. Still nice to try of course, despite the high price. I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in New York (Columbus Circle), New York on 12-July-2013 for US$12.99 sampled at home in Washington on 28-August-2013.

9 oz. At Range Burgers. Pours a copper with clear body. Aroma has distinct vanilla, almost like cream soda. There are subtle malt notes. Lots of vanilla in the flavor, peculiar Belgian ale. The finish is short and lets out some banana hints. Not much hop presence.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden haze with a profound carbonation, creating a fluffy and sticky foam head. The aroma is of floral hops, citrus, malts, spices, and yeast. It is very pleasant. The flavor is freshing. It has a defined pale malt like character, mild bitterness, citrus tones, and a mild yeast taste. In the finish I noticed a calming bitterness, malt taste, and yeast flavor that sticks around. Overall I liked this and was worth purchasing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught from the brewery. Pours cloudy orange, with a thin but lacing head. Nose shows bright, earthy hops. Resin and citrus. Bitter and then dry on the finish. Some floral notes, but more on the earthy side of flowers. Dirt included in the flowerpot, I guess. In a good way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Capone’s, Norristown. Cloudy deep orange pour, nice filmy head on it. Super dry nose, pungent and very inviting, with a pronounced earthiness to it. Playful mouthfeel, lightly bitter on the dry finish. Flavors are really nice, with a seriously earthy yeast core that brings together floral and bitter notes alike, with light spice on the finish. Very enjoyable.

Bottle. Pours gold with a quickly settling white head. Nose is Belgian yeast and apricot. Taste is very earthy and spicy. Cereal grain and a touch of citrus at the end. Palate is crisp and prickly. Very unique.
