3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Where and how: GG Virginia Beach, bottle 335 ml.
Aroma straw hay, clean alcohol with Belgian yeast. A bit too straight forward.
Top: large, very fine bright snowy white top. Good lace shown.
Base: golden bright white bottom.
Palate : medium bodied, milder carbonation, touch of soft chewy texture.
Taste: well done, yes...but also very pedestrian. Clean, balanced, and well thought. Yet it can’t escape feel of ordinary.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark yellow with a solid 2 fingers of off white head. Aroma is banana, spicy Belgian yeast and a whole mess of funk. Taste is medium bitter and lightly tart - citrus hops with quite a Bit of funk. Very good, I’m digging this one.

Very lemon zest, clementine peel aroma with a touch of peppercorn and sweet banana. Appears cloudy gold with bubbles floating in solution. Sweet and acidic orange juice are at the front and fade away as grapefruit and oregano hoppyness balances the sweetness. Palate is ordinary. Overall, very nice.

Bottle. Dark gold. Super fuzzy. Nice yeasty nose, slightly sweet. Nice mild hop and floral fruitiness. Mild candi sugar. Very easy drinking.

Another winner from the beer camp case. The american citrusy hops with the not-so-subtle belgian notes really work. Pours a hazy gold with a nice white head. Nose is all belgian- unmistakeable. Really yeasty with prominent biscuit/ hay/ bread. Drinks really crisp with nice bitter notes from the hops. Earthy and almost funky at the end. Super balance. So drinkable. Loved it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Golden in color with a small white head. Average levels of carbonation. Aromas of dusty grains, bitter citrus rinds and fruity yeasty esters. Flavors of dough, lemongrass, herbal hops, candied apricots, white bread and wet hay. Finishes dry and hoppy. It worked, but it took a little bit for me to warm up to this beer. Tasting notes from 7/2014.

A well crafted beer, a farmhouse with hops that lend it a bitterness. Personally, I would have liked more of the latter and maybe should have had fresh on tap.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow pour with a while head. Yeasty aroma, malty, a little fruity in the nose. Taste is Belgian yeast, nice malt flavor, hops come out from behind the yeast. Lasting aftertaste. Very good.
