3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Has some Belgian yeast aromas and flavors. Some banana nutty flavors and aroma. A bit watery on the palate, but a nice beer for saranac. But of an odd bitter finish.

Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate yeast balanced aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Some fruity yeast esters and hop aroma, pours a clear light amber, with a thin white head. Straw hop notes, with a dry finish. Light in body, with just a touch of the promised Belgian notes. Not a bad session ale.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance is similar to that of a domestic macro. Aroma wreaks of wheat and dryness, with a hint of citrus. Taste is very clean, only a little bitter... sweet and dry, all at the same time.
