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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 it’s a decent example of one of my least favorite styles.

Courtesy ChzMan from a growler sent by kramer. Hazy yellow/gold and a bit of white carbonation. Yeast forward, strong Belgian golden. Sugary. Full body, balanced mouthfeel. Not my style, but drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear yellow orange colour with a thin almost non existent white head. Aroma of peaches, mangos, guava juice, papaya. Flavour is same as the aroma but less powerful. This beer smells better than it tastes but it’s still quite good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the Selins Grove brew pub. Poured a cloudy orange yellow with a thick long lasting white head. Aroma was spicy and malty with a good whiff of Belgian yeast and some nice subtle hints of cinnamon. Flavor was close to a perfect blend of Belgian yeastiness, sweet candi sugar and some good malt and spice. I really detected some cinnamon and cloves but they were subtle enough not to be distracting. This was a great brew pub Belgian.
