3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11.2oz bottle, shared by Jay. Code on the back of the bottle reads "L4724 13:34". Bottled was opened hours ago but has been refrigerated the whole time. Still some pretty active-looking carbonation in the body. Clear golden color. Nice thin white head. Some decent but looser splotches of lace. Medium to bigger body. Soft, smooth, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Nice lightly spicy taste, light spicy hop. Light sweet taste. Surprisingly easy to drink. Nice Belgian. Surprisingly good.

Bottle shared by a friend. Clear yellow pour with a huge white head. Aroma of funk, malt and light tartness. Malty flavor with some honey character and funk before a sweet finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Seems to have several entries for one beer. Mine is from nv Roman. Aroma of green grapes and yeasty esters. Pale yellow, huge head and spastic carbonation, like a cheap lager someone shook up and it exploded. Sweet, sugary fruit flavor primarily, also some earthy herbal notes. Essentially a very strong saison, doesn’t quite fit as a French ale. Body is light and zesty. This beer can cause the hick-ups. Where does Marty get this stuff?...from Eurobrew apparently.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(750ml bottle) clearish gold, lasting soapy offwhite bubbles. Nose of sawdust, grapes, white wine, oak. Taste of white wine grapes, but esters and papery, not my favorite.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Clear yellow pour with a thin white head. Aroma is floral, honey, sweet. A bit of Belgian character, but not much. Flair is honey, sweet, slightly spicy. A little cloying. Meh.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft @ Thirsty Moose, Portsmouth, NH. Snifter shows a completely clear piss yellow color. Strong head retention lining the sides on the way down. The nose is only one thing: fruity Belgian yeast. Flavors are really light and weak; Pilsner or pale malts, honey and light yeast. The alcohol is nicely hidden; yet this brew lacks any kind of real character or depth. Thin body, kind of watery on the palate. Simple brew that could be refreshing on a summer day. Don’t expect a highly complex Belgian with this brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Common Belgian combination of sweetness and bitterness - caramel and spices. Yet quite dull and heavy, leaves a musky aftertaste. I like the thirsty pig in the label - trčs sympa.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Clear deep hay color with a nice fluffy white head.
Grainy nose, with light fruitiness, spicy hops, some coriander and faint sulfur.
Bready flavors, light malt, spice, medium bitterness, apricot and citrus notes.
Pretty clean and balanced, dry enough, alcohol is nicely hidden and the beer is actually quite decent for its style.
