3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Capones. Pours a very light blond hazy almost cloudy, with a nice tight sticky white head. Aroma is grainy, cereal, mineral, toasty doughy malts with a slight clovey phenolic Belgian yeastiness- saison like with some grits. Flavor is slight lemon zest, toasty malts, slight grassy hops, some herbs, spice, earth and slight drying leather with lemons in the end with a dry peppery finish. Pretty good and refreshing. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
tradtional ale is an unsatasfying name Put it in with the saisons or something all togtlether different. Belgian spice and a massive citrus presence with no pith. Refreshing and drinkable with a nicely diverse grain bill.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nov. 2006 - Pale yellow pour, very little head or lacing. Aroma was that of pears and apple. Flavor was fruity and spicy with just a touch of barnyard funk. Spices and pepper also prevalent. Fullness of flavor and mouthfeel improved as it warmed, but the beer got yet sweeter. An okay attempt.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Barcade. (I can’t believe how sucky I am now at "Asteroids" over all these years...) Slightly hazy gold color with a thin head. Bready, doughy aroma wth some banana yeast. Bready, sour (green apple/lemon) and bitter hop notes permeate what’s like a "raw pretzel" malt flavor. Kind of an underlying phenolic note. Thin and a bit fizzy in palate. Can’t say I loved it, but interesting.
