3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
tap at the brewpub - Things started looking up at RR when I got to this ale. Pours up golden with a nice head. The aroma is fairly light with some malt and flowery notes. The flavor is actually not as sweet as I expected, but has the malt and candi sugar, along with some mild citrus and spice notes. There’s a touch of alcohol in the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an enticing golden-yellow in the glass; short white head with good lacing. Shows a slight amount of lemon and banana in the nose; some spice. Pleasant up-front carbonation, Champagne-like bubbles, pepper, plenty of spice, honey and some banana - but spices are most prominent, approaching the profile of a tripel. Medium finish, ending peppery.

A fantastic replica of a strong belgium amber ale. i love this beer. its only drawback is its light body and its abrupt end. a great but subtle taste of citrus

Bottle. Thanks to realale420. Pours a heady golden color. Lots of lingering frothy goodness. Aroma is sweet, earthy, flowery and spicy. Flavor is very much the same with notes of banana clove and some spice followed by bready malts. A real nice balance to this beer. Not my favorite style, but a damn good example.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
25 oz bottle, Batch 8, via IrishBoy. Pours a clear bright gold colored body under a two finger fizzy white head that faded to a thin film and left great lacing. Aroma is of light bready malt with some lemongrass, yeast, peach, marshmellow, light alcohol, and bananas. The flavor is fairly light up front, just some light pale maltiness, grapefruit, and lemon. The finish is rather dry, rather bitey, with a good amount of alcohol apparency for an only 7% ABV beer. Mouthfeel is very highly carbonated with a light to medium body. A very unique beer to say the least. It came across as sort of a Triple / Belgian Golden Ale combination to me.

draft: very enjoyable beer...would go really well with white meats. the aroma consisted of small notes of banana and spices. The flavor is sweet (not overly) and it isn’t ruined by a sour vineuos flavor which some BSA are. The palate was smooth and clean.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Golden in colour. Aroma is citric, hoppy and yeasty. The palate shows some lively carbonation, with some citric yeastyness and some grassy hop notes, with a slightly warming, peppery/spicy finish, quite flowery, with some light apricot fruit notes. very pleasant.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, batch 007 (thanks to Todd V.). Bright honey color with a thin white head. Nose is sweet and a tad malty, with cider notes and some yeast. Nice bright flavor, with decent bitterness and pleasant yeast hints. Also nice floral notes with a pleasant freshness. Great mouthfeel, smooth and refreshing and nicely carbonated. A nice take on a belgian, very triple-esque.
