4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2016 At Bavarian Lodge. The belgian yeast and hops come together nicely and don’t seem to be competing. Quite fruity and florally hoppy. Mellow citrus a little too. Warming and quite drinkable. A notice a strange resin/metalic flavor in the first sip but never noticed it again so not sure what that was about. Serving: Tap

Draft at Ale House. Pours copper with an off white head. Aroma is tropical fruit, white grape. Flavor is caramel, honey, mango, white grape. Grapefruit peel bitterness and a hint of clove in the finish. This would probably be a touch better without the Belgian yeast character.

Tap. Full on grapefruit and lemony hops that finishes with a nice belgian tang. I havent had a belgian IPA in a while and this brings back fond memories.

On draft. Cloudy yellow. Aroma is slightly fruity, But mostly yeasty. Taste is Bananna, clove, milkweed, chalky. The agressive Belgian forward yeast just doesn’t work with me.

Nose is a candi sugar covered hop cone. Light pine but mostly citrus. Light white wine character. Taste is initially sweet then shows off some more orange marmalade and sherbet character. A tad sweet for my taste but still very good. Could dry out more in the finish.
