Brought back 3 bottles of this while I was in Seattle. I think I might have been expecting a little more. Overall a good beer.

Clove spicy aroma with a slight grapefruit citrus. Taste of white grape and a low earthy hop finish. Light body with effervescent carbonation. Very good beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from City Beer, San Fransisco. Hazy golden pour, foamy white head. Aroma is fruity, spicy and yeasty with some peppers and a bit of alcohol, still a bit swampy. Flavor is spicy bitter and slightly sharp and quite fruity. Decent attempt at a Belgian brew from an American brewery, but itís not the same.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured minimal head on a clear, straw colored body.
The aroma is wonderful: apple, pear, dry grain and barnyard.
The taste is full of fruit: apple and pear again. Thereís a sour note middle to end and some lemon bitterness too. Nicely balanced.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.

Very good, but not great. I was expecting something a bit more complex. Not surprisingly, there are a few better beers from this brewery!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Trappist, Oakland. Light golden pour. Floral notes and estery yeast dominate the aroma, quite a bit of musty graininess too. Flavour gives plenty of cereal and grain, herbs, bread, floral notes, light citrus. More dusty, damp notes. Very dry finish. A bit strange, not a patch on their other beers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Toronado, SF. Hazy yellow appearance with a fluffy white cap above. Spicy aroma that holds plenty of promise. Lovely flavours of white grape, lemon, herbs and spices. Very refined and well executed, possibly the closest imitation of a Belgian beer Iíve had from the US.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml capped and corked bottle courtesy of Levi. Not sure how I havenít rated this one before. Hazy orange-tan. Minimal, oily residue head. Tastes sort of old and devolved. Really unimpressive at this point, not the beer I associated with in my brain. A pretty mundane Belgian Blonde, a hint of funk in the background. Batch 57 drank in 2013. Iíd say donít age this one.
