3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Great Belgian appearance, hazy orange with a slightly tan head that lasts for ages. Banana and alcohol on the nose. Flavor is syrupy-sweet with plenty of apricot and other fruits. Not much hop presence, mostly bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and grainy, but with too much apparent alcohol heat. This isn’t bad or offensive or anything, it just doesn’t come together well.

Bottle from Proof. Slightly hazy golden pour with a fluffy white head. Aroma is bubble gum, yeast esters, Belgian candi sugars with some floral and grassy notes. Flavor is similar and sweet throughout with as grassy and floral hop bite at the end. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. Not bad.

Cloudy orange with white head. Aroma is strongly citrus. Taste is not as hippy as expected and over balanced sweet. Still very enjoyable.

This beer has the aroma of grapefruit. It has a gold color and a strong bite of hops. We paired it with a mushroom tart. It took some of the bite away and left a sweet flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice if a bit average Belgian. Pours a nice looking cloudy orange with a white head. Smells of Belgian and a bit of grapefruit. Berries and grapefruit in the taste, with a slight hoppiness throughout. Paired sleuth mushroom Swiss tartlets, the hoppiness is cut a bit with some sweetness coming in. Had in the bottle.

Sample at Julio’s Spring Beer Fest. Poured gold with a fluffy (pun intended) white head. Lemon zest and various other citrus aromas and a light yeasty scent. Lightly sweet flavor with some hints at candied sugar as well as more citrus, apple and pear, with some Belgian characteristics. Medium to light body and to the dry side.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
New Beer Distributors, NYC 650ml ($8): Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, yeasty, and fruity. Nice amount of hoppiness in this, which adds a lot of edge to the more traditional tripel style beneath it all. Spice and citrus are of course there. Quite good.
