4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice hazy yellow color. Just the right amount of carbonation, with some alcohol in the finish. Taste and aroma were solid but taste was a bit blander than it could have been.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
375 ml bottle poured into a Spiegelau tulip. Bottled on 01/15/14. Pours a clear light golden yellow with three fingers of off-white head. Light lacing. Aromas of yeast, lemon/lime, banana, herbs and spices. Tastes of banana, Belgian yeast, esters, lemon lime citrus, tropical fruit, herbs and spices, a bit of pear. Medium-light body with a dry finish. Medium-low carbonation. Very nice.
Did a 9/4/12 bottle side by side after the 1/15/14 bottle. Aged quite nicely. Not a big difference, maybe a little tartness and a bit more lemon/lime.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy light gold with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is light citrus with cereal malts. Somewhat floral notes with some telltale belgian yeast notes. Taste is light and smooth. So easily quaffable. Light honey and citrus zest. Light malt profile and a slight dry palate in the end. Wish this was closer to me so that I could have it more often.

Appearance - 4/5 - golden amber color thatís hazy with a white head on top that leaves nice lacing

Taste - 8/10 - same as the nose, plus a hop bitterness thatís nice. Banana, orange juice, papaya, wheat, toast, bread, pepper, spice. Almost a tart kind of a taste? Thereís something on the roof of the mouth that I canít quite pick out.

Overall - 17/20 - not the best Belgian Iíve had but Damn good. Totally a keeper in my book + worth trying!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Hazy, honey-golden pour with a fluffy head. Nose is Belgian yeast, a little sweatiness, apple cider vinegar, burnt sugar, taffy. Taste is pretty consistent with the olfactories. Gentle carbonation and this beer really coats your taste buds. Just the slightest bit of tartness combined with some fruitiness (pears, honey crisp apple). Good stuff from RR, but what else would you expect.
