3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/08: Pours a hazy bright golden with a frothy, spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of sweet biscuity Belgian malt and yeast with a touch of fruity esters. Body starts fairly full and malty sweet with a good balance of clove and coriander bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty authentic and enjoyable.

Tap @ brewpub. Golden pour with a huge white head. Fruits and sugar fill flavor and nose but alcohol kind of killed it for me, even though its not as high as other high abv beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler, courtesy TheCheeseMan. The pour yields a very cloudy, glowing, golden-tangerine colored body. A small, foamy, white blanket settles in quickly, leaving just a thin rim around the edge. Just a few scant spots of lacing dot the glass. The aroma is sweet, showing golden raisins and orange marmalade, with hints of lemon peel and some banana phenols. The yeast profile is doughy, with some mildly spicy floral hops coming through as well. The flavor is similar, centrering on blonde candy sugar and sweet light fruits, with citrus and banana again featured prominently. Bready, doughy yeast again plays a big role, perhaps too much of one, in fact. Mild spice emerges on the finish. The body is big and sugary, but smooth, with micro-fine carbonation. Finishes sticky. Ultimately, too sweet and yeasty for me, but itís a decent example of one of my least favorite styles.
