Aroma of young cheese, sweet yellow fruits, yeast, apples, some sweet bread, some citrus, spices.
Tastes of yeast, citrus, grass, apricot, berries, red apples, some cheese, some sweet bread, some peppery spices.
Medium, a bit creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes dry, medium bitter, a bit sour, a bit sweet, fruity, yeasty, a bit peppery, with some piney hops.
Very nice. Really smooth and greatly balanced, easy and quite complex at the same time. Sweet, fruity and yeasty in the beginning, but finishing dry and hoppy, really interesting. One of the better style examples I’ve had, I would gladly drink again.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Review from notes. Golden color with white head. Aroma has some yeast notes and a slight tartness. Taste has an interesting yeast character with some tropical fruit notes. Body is light and well carbonated. Overall this is a nice, belgian style ale. Refreshing and very easy to drink.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy yellow on tap with fluffy white head that dissipates slowly to leave good lace. Aroma and taste of fruity and spicy Belgian esters, low malt presence, dry finish, big banana. Not my favorite Belgian style, but well made.

Bottle shared. Thanks Jon! Pours a hazy straw gold with a one-finger head of foam. Apple and pear nose with some good clean yeast on the nose. Light body with the yeast making up for the lower malt flavor and soft carbonation. Smooth and easy drinking beer.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours neon yellow with a half a finger of clean white foam into a wine glass.
The nose shows rich round malts.
The palate is light bodied and lightly carbonated. Very light on flavors and light malts. Understated but still quite refreshing. One can see easily see the contrast with the Damnation.
