3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle. Punchy nose of honey/syrup, cereal, and spice. Pours a lambent gold with a pronounced head and scattered lace. Flavor of dark/dried fruit, sweetness, and a pronounced toasty malt, with a ricochet of hops bitterness on the close -- just enough to cut the sweetness. Palate is rich without being cloying. Real Ale has done it again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Tap] Pours a golden color with a small amount of white head. Aroma of yeast, sweet malts and typical Belgian spices. Taste is a little rough around the edges. Plenty of apple and pear notes in here, but the spice is somewhat lacking. A citrus finish. Sweet and alcoholic, but the mouthfeel was a bit thin for a proper balance. Seems like the light alcohol burn is the main theme of this beer. It could use some time to mellow out into a better Belgian.

Pours a hazy honey gold color. Moderate white head with good retention and lacing. Mild aroma of citrus and wheat. Taste is spicy, with lots of clove and just a slight skunkiness. Dry mouthfeel. Not a great beer, but solid for a smaller brewery.
