4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 6/26/2014 at the brewpub. This Belgian Ale pours a medium gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is hoppy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Belgian Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are grapefruity and citrusy, a touch herbal. Decent carbonation, lots of nice small bubbles. Hoppy and VERY DRY, and I mean VERT DRY. A little bit of tartness. This might be the driest beer I have had in a really long time. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter with a lot of dryness.

Awesome strange Belgian IPA-ish yet Rye Dry... Aw fuck, I can’t explain this beer! It’s excellent, much like a RyePA, yet at the same time very Belgian.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a golden color with a bit of fine head. Intense citrusy hop flavors. Unusual to put so much hops into a golden ale. The hop profile matches the style though. But it's a little overpowering. Nice fruitiness. The citrusy bitterness lingers a long time.
