3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a decent full white head that simmers down but continues to coat the surface. Definitely smells like a Belgian - - coriander and banana. Taste is smoother and more bready than a Belgian with ample sweet pale malt. Some fruitiness present as well with banana and citrus. tongue coating crisp hoppiness at the end. Pretty good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The color of this beer is a pure yellow golden with a small white head that dissipates quickly, and the aroma smells like yeast, toasted malts, and wine vinegar. The taste is mildly sour and slightly sweet; also, the palate combines a creamy texture, medium body, flat carbonation, and a long finish that is reminiscent of a lager.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on tap at the brewpub in a snifter tulip. It poured a nice orange-amber colour with deep, fluffy white foam, everlasting with sticky Belgian lace. Aromas and flavours of grain, white crackers, active bread dough and freshly baked French baguette, grassy noble hops, tangy bitterness, fruity esters, black pepper and bubble-gum phenols. Light body, strong carbonation, crisp and snappy mouthfeel, complex aftertaste which lingers. I agree with Vyvvy, this is a really delicious beer. I liked it almost as much as their beloved Belgian Singel, and much prefer it to their Tripel. Highly recommended.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours bright and clear golden / yellow with a good sized white head. The aroma is almost like a cross between a Belgian ale and a pilsner. There seems to be a clean pilsner malt and spicy grassy hops that are like a pilsner along with fruity funkiness from Belgian yeast. There is also a touch of cracker and sulfur and a nice dryness to it. Medium / thin body that’s crisp at first, but then has a sticky velvety body and a modest amount of semi-sharp carbonation. There is more of a fruitiness to the taste than on the aroma a less of the pilsner, but still seems like a cross between the two. It’s way to easy drinking and refreshing to believe it is 7% abv as well. The finish has a lot spiciness to it and a hint of richness. Really nicely crafted US take on a Belgian golden.
