Liked. Crisp, refreshing, delicate with notes of bread crumbs, nutmeg, noble hops, and LME. Not the most complex Belgian, but it was served by Gale, the one and only at 401 yesterday evening. She made me remember why I enjoy local dives and obscure public houses so much. This was the beer that she finally asked my ID for, but unlike Kraddel, didn’t kick me out. Good time in Hampton.

355ml bottle at home. Pours hazy yellow with a decent white head. Gentle aromas of yeast and cereal, only a faint hint of spice. Taste is smooth and lightly sweet. Bitter taste develops. Not bad.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly vintage bottle at The New Penguin. Lightly misted gold with a thinning white collar. Muted lemon and lime confectionery aroma (at first) gathering white wine, buttered cider, banana, strawberry, grain and bourbon. Mellow spiced soapy lime flavour with muddled oak and green apple. Some oily peanut malt in the mix; white wine again. Odd but not unpleasant.

A yellow body with a large white head that had good retention. Aroma was mild a splint spice note. Mild hints of bubblegum. Flavor was mild. Don't know what I was missing. I could not get any interesting or dominate flavors. Mild carbonation.

Essentially like UFO white, except much better. Spices complement the beer well and bring it together.

Still wrapping up notes from the 2011 Midwest Brewers Fest. Tawny yellow color beer. A little bit of head from a small bottle pour. Nose has some bubblegum ester and some yeast to it. Nice Belgian dubbel flavor of light malts and more ester, no distinctive hops. Just settles in very well as a session ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Slightly hazy light golden color with a medium white head, decent retention.
Spicy yeast aroma, with light fruitiness, fresh bread and some herbal notes.
Sweetish light malt, some citrus flavors, low bitterness and faint spicy snap.
Light-med body, pleasant and easy to drink, refreshing and quite OK.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours decent with a golden hazy color, white head and well carbonated. The beer has little sediment and almost no lacing. The smell is definitely wheat and citrus notes with some mild spices on the back end. The taste is decent with a nice crisp wheat taste instantly and some citrus, almost corriander flavor, and possible a honey taste. The mouthfeel is okay with a crisp wheat flavor that lingers on for a while. Overall, this is a nice summer beer from Smuttynose but nothing you slam on your breaks to stop and get.

Nose full of citrus. Soft malt. Hardly any phenols. A soft malt flavor with some cracker like notes. Dry finish. Not very tart. Ok. Very consumable.
