3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
375ml Bottle. The pour was a hazy medium yellow with an average (1-2 finger) white creamy head that steadily diminished down to a thin film with a small collar, producing excellent sheets of lacing.
The aroma a was of a grain malt, mild herbal hops and a musty Belgian yeast with notes of citrus (lemon), banana, clove and a slight fruity ester (maybe green apple).
The taste was a boldly yeasty with a mild grainy feel and a light fruity presence early on, and slowly became mildly bitter with a touch of citrus, a hint of banana and a light spicy ending. The flavor had a great longevity, with a nice yeasty taste that was left lingering while you got this slight spicy bite right to the back of the throat.
Mouthfeel was a bit beyond light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall another tasty beer from this brewer, although pretty average for the style it still possessed tons of flavor and without a high ABV. Yes, I think I could enjoy a few of these...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very high apple tart aroma, medium carbonation no breadiness. Strong cidery vinegar characteristic well-balanced in this that the carbonation and the malt, grain hop balance is working well together. Slight earthy pencil lead and Barnwood characteristic.
