3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Binny’s Marcey. Really dig the label. Pours a hazy and glowing deep gold with a big frothy white head that sticks around. Nose is pretty citrusy, lots of orange peel in here. Some white pepper and sweetness as well. Biscuity malts and passion fruit? Pretty neat. On tasting, there are some higher alcohols. The hops all blend nicely with the herbal continental hops intermingling with the fruitier American varietals. Really dry finish, minimal warming. Just some sharper alcohol qualities. Nice body here with a good malt base that keeps it tight. Nice enough beer for sure.

Bottle from batch 408/409 won in lottery.
Brilliantly clear deep golden color with a huge bubbly white head. Light bready pilsner maltiness with hints of spice and lots of Belgian yeasty esters. Sweet light honey and bready malt flavor. Bits of tropical fruits and yeasty phenols. A bit on the sweet side for my liking.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, shared with Parksy, Grippitis, JJ, and others. Hazy medium golden with a frothy white head. Lightly floral, fruity aroma, estery. Flavours of sugary pale malts and ripe tropical fruits, with low bitterness. As we made our way through this, the sweetness became too much, verging on cloying. Not my favorite from these guys.
