3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours light golden with a thick white head. Aroma is light fruit, banana, yeasty, plenty of esters and some spice, a bit peppery. Flavor is sweet, the light fruit is very aggressive, plenty of banana, some sharp gummy notes, bits of grain finishing with an alcohol bite. Medium body and a sharp carbonation. Not great, but ok

Draft. Pours clear gold with a white head. Aroma of fruit, banana. Alcohol is a touch strong, little tart flavor. It was decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Piece. Pours a very clear gold with a frothy Belgian head. Nose is very estery with apples and banana dominating. Some white pepper notes as well. Hops and grains are subdued. On tasting, tart apple notes at the front with a distinct alcohol component. This is a big bear, but reinforces my opinion that Belgian is not a strong suit for Piece. Decent.

Draft... I had the 09 anniversary and was hoping they did they same beer as that was outstanding, ten years brings a whole new beer... Pours a medium gold clear, with a decent white head, doesn’t last long... Sweeter nose but the 10% does show, a double gumballhead almost, lots of sweet bubblegum noted with yeast and bit of floral hops... This is an easy drinker, way to easy to get tanked on this smooth drinker, doesn’t show the alcohol except for a light warmth on your tongue, yeast on the finish, the front is sweet malts, a bit of honey and gum... This is crushable with high alcohol... Outstanding, give this a try
