3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden body, relatively thin white head, no lacing. Classic Belgian yeast, light lemon zest, pepper and residual sweetness. Medium bodied, a bit rough at times, assertive carbonation, residual sweetness leaves the finish a bit long.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Selin’s Grove. Opaque yellow, small head. Nose and flavor bring bread, hints of clove and cinnamon, sweet peach, candied sugars, and notes of marzipan as well. Clean on the body for an 8-9% beer. True to the style, but not overwhelming.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served on-tap at the brewpub.
A - Pours hazy golden yellow with a small film of white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving no lace at all down the glass.
S - Smells of candied sugar, fruity belgian yeast, citric fruit, light spice and some green apples. There is quite a bit of alcohol burn on the nose once it warms up.
T - Starts off with a ton of sugary sweetness slowly giving way to hints of citric fruit, green apples, belgian yeast and some dulled spice. Quite a bit of alcohol comes through as it warms up. Finish is pretty sweet, lingering for some time after consumption.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Sweet, soft feel with quite a bit of residual sweetness clinging to the pallet long after consumption.
O - I have had this one quite a few times before and it was much better than this score would indicate. I will have to revisit this one in the future and give it another chance.
