3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a nice clear gold body that supports a thin off white head. The modest aroma offers up kind of punchy notes like a sharp apricot and lime mixture that gets into a nice little malt graininess at the end of the draw. The taste starts with a little bit of grainy malt sweetness and then sort of slightly tart peach and apricot and maybe a little bit of a pear note going on. This finishes with a pleasing sort of grainy maltiness that is in contrast to the brighter, slightly tart fruitiness.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2012 SS Growler from the brewery. Spicy white pepper aroma with some flowery herbal hops, light Belgian banana esters behind with some cracker malt. Flavor follows suit, some nice hops again with the spicy white pepper pretty prominent. There is some of the fruity yeast, but not too much. Reminds me a bit of Taras Boulba, which I’m told is what the brewers were shooting for, so good on them. Scant sweetness, this finishes nice and dry with earthy bitterness peaking at a 3-4. Pretty tasty.
Old rating follows. Tap at Newport Pizza in OB. Clear light yellow gold with a small white head, down to a tattered film. Very dry, Belgian yeasty. Some dry herbal hops. Dry finish, bitterness at 3. Light body mod carb. Nice dry light belgian pale. Will update later.

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.
