Sampled at GABF 2012. Didnít make much of an impression. I will have to head to the brewery and try under more sedate surroundings for a better review. Just not much flavor or zing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Societe tap room: Poured a sparkling golden blonde with a little formation of head which quickly broke down leaving the liquid completely naked. Aroma smells of grainy malts and grassy hay while having a stark similarity to an Imperial pilsner smell. The flavor is grainy with hay yet a taste of corn and rice cereal almost like Crispex yet has a slight addition of Belgian yeast that only suggests a hint of spice. Sort of finishes empty. Aftertaste of laundry soap perhaps.

Aroma of champagne, slight banana pudding and sourdough. Pours light blonde with film. Tastes of white grape and tart yeast. Bright mouthfeel makes this a nice drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap @ PP Carlsbad. Light golden pour with a slick of white foam and steady, semi-aggressive carbonation. Aroma is minimal hops and a pleasant yeast character with slight clove followed by a clean malt profile. Taste is soft clove, light yeast esters, minimal banana, pepper, and complimentary hop bitterness through the finish. Clean mouthfeel going from smooth to crisp. Understated beer but well crafted and quite enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The pour is clear pale yellow with a big white head. The nose is nice Belgian candy sugar, ginger, cloves, bready pastry and light honey. The taste is medium to low sweet with low bitter again with these guys, great balance. The texture is soft and creamy, the body is light and the finish is huge.

Pours from the tap a yellow to light orange with white head. Aroma is more bread and belgian yeast with a little more sweetness. Taste is dry and crisp, refreshing. Banana again and some light hops make this one really easy to drink. Overall, my favorite of their belgian line today.

Pours a yellow-orange with a small white head which leaves nice lacing. Aroma is of Belgian yeast, light bready malts, some banana, cloves, and some fruity ethers. Taste is of Belgian yeast, banana, cloves, bready malts, fruits, and some light funkyness. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, slighty bitter, refreshing finish. Overall, a pretty tasty and refreshing Belgian ale.
