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.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma is light and slightly floral with a hint of grain. Initial flavor is very unique with a grain character and accompanied by a chalky mouthfeel. This fades to a more typical Belgian expression with yeast balance by lively hops. Malt notes linger, adding depth.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange pour with a frothy, well-sustained head - nose of spicy and citric American hops, lightly musty yeast, earthy malt, tangy citrus - smells more like an American IPA than a Belgian ale, but still nice - full, frothy carbonation in the mouth - flavor is medium dry, with crackery malts, crisp hop bitterness - a bit of earthiness, metallic notes, dusty/basement yeast late, followed by lingering, lightly sweet orange zest and a light herbal note - it’s a good beer, but not for the price - nice to try a Perennial brew, though.

Bottle from a trade with AlexFields, thank you sir! Pours a clear golden with a fair white head. Aroma is hoppy and quite a typical belgian (fruity, spices). Taste is medium sweet with a nice and soft bitterness. It isn’t described as a Belgian IPA because it isn’t but it’s a really nice and hoppy belgian ale!
