4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the Craft Beer Cellar in a snifter glass. It poured a clear straw colour with white foam, compact little bubbles and lace. Strong Belgian phenols: pepper, clove, banana, subtle lacto and brett characteristics. Grainy but otherwise neutral maltbill, almost no residual sweetness. Tart and mildly acidic. Light body, spritzy carbonation, dry finish but with a pleasantly spicy aftertaste. Delicious and refreshing.

Hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy with lemon, lime and a nice subtle funky background with earthy, spicy, barnyard notes. Taste is light to medium sweet with nice barnyard citrus notes and some spices. Finish is citrus pith bitterness. Light bodied, average carbonation. This would be great a hot summer day.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an exceptionally fruity hoppy Belgian ale. I am not particularly in love w/ every little last thing about it but it is exceptional regardless and anyone who is into beer should give this a try at some point. It’s a murky orange color w/ just a wisp of a head. Hops hit first in the nose and give a strong impression of orange zest or orange candy perhaps. This is a little sweet which seems to bring out some lavender and apricot. This isn’t sour at all but something about it implies Sweet Tarts candy. This is full bodied w/ somewhat prickly carbonation which works fairly well in a Belgian style. It finishes w/ a lingering bit of sweetness, lots of fruit and solid, firm bitterness. I can’t quite put my finger on it but something about the hop or yeast character is just a little bit weird and gives it the exaggerated fruitiness I mention earlier. It is not a bad beer but it is maybe just a little bit much.

Keg at Craft. Very nice smell, bit peppery. Taste has much more pepper and then vanilla ice cream! Bit of fruit cocktail in there too lingering at the back. Really interesting mix. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg. Hazy pale yellow with a medium sized diminishing white head. Flowers, fruit stack, light barnyard, lemon, dusty. Light body, watery texture, light/medium sweet and bitter with some very light sourness. Thin and no too interesting, but I guess it could work as a table beer kind of thing.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium, 12 Fl. Oz. Bottle.
Pours a very delicate straw colour. Very clear beer, with a nourrished carbonation which creates a nice head.
The aroma is quite interesting. There is a mixture of fruity citrus with important notes of barley.
This beer is very refreshing ! Citrus, lemon zest and fruity aromas are present which end up at an nice finish, not too long, but not too light on a sweetish citrusy taste.
Overall, this beer is quite an interesting idea. A farmhouse ale, made for summer days. It is actually mid winter right now, be I have a piece of summer beer in my hands !
