2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a clear straw-gold color and a moderate, white, fluffy head which is mostly diminishing and leaves minimal lace. The nose is pretty bland, light candi sugar, herbal, toasty, and cookie notes. The flavor is pretty much the same with addition of phenolic spice. The palate is the only high point; lively, creamy, round, and more than moderate. The finish is very spicy with the phenols finally balancing the candi sweetness. The simplicity was by far my least favorite part if the beer but just not really much to like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is yeast, citrus, earthy and floral. Taste is sweet with some light citrus bitters. Medium bodied with a light and airy texture. Very refreshing and better then I thought it would be.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale gold, almost clear beer with a fluffy, white head. Aromas of apples and some spices. Tastes of candy sugar, rice/wheat, some banana, and lots of apple flavors. A bit too citric and sweet, kind of like an apple cider. Sweet, boozy finish. Effervescent with lively carbonation. Refreshing brew. While it is not a bad beer it does not represent the style too well. Average.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Nob Hill Bar & Grille. Poured in ornate logo’ed goblet. Slight but lasting white head and lace. Deep amber color. Served very cold but estery aromas still evident. Early malty sweetness was well-matched to a mellow hop bitterness. Subtle Belgian yeast character. Overall, seemed like a big blonde or a light tripel. OKAY.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle split with Anndiesel. Filtered bright, light yellow-orange. Fluffy, steady, soft white head. Sweet aroma, Kind of in the tradition of a beer like Duvel, but not as hoppy, and certainly lacks the finesse. Big, boozy, fruity yeast tones. Very old school taste and feel to it, some faint balancing hops, but mostly a sugary malt beast. Grows on you as you sip at it, and improves a little time out of the refrigerator. Apricot, banana, ginger, mango, pear, green apple..lots of subtle yeasty nuances. Pretty decent offering,

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale light orange/yellow with a thin disappearing, fizzy, white head. Smells of coriander, malt, fruit and Belgian ale yeast. Thin to medium oily body with soft carbonation. Frothy. Sweet start of butter, fruit and malt with a dry bitter alcohol finish and lingering yeast and spices. It would be nicer if the alcohol wasn’t so noticeable.
