3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
19th March 2014, San Diego’s old Fish Market Bar, sat on the terrace facing the bay sunning ourselves. One of five beers that we took during a leisurely afternoon. Clear, almost straw blonde in colour with a white covering for a head. Mild citrus front to the nose and taste, obviously an American take on a Belgian Ale because it tastes nothing like what I was expecting (being a Brit who visits Belgium on a regular basis). I did however enjoy it, some hints of yeastiness within the flavours made it semi-interesting and I found it easy to drink while watching the water lap against the shore.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at the brewery. It pours a clear pale yellow color with a white head. The aroma is light and spicy with cinnamon, clove, coriander and pepper. Nice yeast esters. The flavor is dry and spicy with more cinnamon, coriander with a touch of pepper and clove. Pale malt and light pear esters in the background. A good Belgian.

GABF 2012, October 12, Friday. Very Belgian in character. Dry with lots of hops and Belgian yeast, but lower alcohol, making me think of Orval or a dry saison. A great beer.

draft at the brewery, a miss for me. Nothing bad about it, just over the top belgian yeast flavors unbalanced this one. Overwhelmed with balances and spices.

Clear medium yellow pour, with a fluffy white head. A very nice, light, dry Belgian ale. Bread, peppery, grain, yeast, herbal bitterness, dry banana, and grass. Very drinkable and dry, nice.

On tap at Barrels And Bottles. Light hazy gold appearance with a lacy white head. The nose is rustic yeast, earthy and lightly floral with notes of toasted grain. Similar flavor. Medium body with ample carbonation. I like this.

(En fût au Bottlecraft Liberty Station): Des malts semi-sucrés, un généreux bouquet d’épices et un tranchant verdoyant parfaitement adéquat. La finale poivre frais est superbe.
