3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Dirty golden, a bit hazy, moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Bready nose, slight grain, even a touch of blackened banana.   Seems somewhat yeasty on the tongue, somewhat like an American Tripel, but its also has some graininess and a smidgen of ashtray to it.   Breadiness doesn’t linger long.   A bit of wet straw like grassiness brings up the backside.   I was hoping this one would be a little light, fluffy, a bit bright, but its heavier, yeastier, and more bready than I care for.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Coats the tongue well.   Lingering grassiness after the finish.   Light sweetness as well.   Its okay, but not one I would reach for again.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
My Bottom Line:
Earthy yeast, muddled sugars and fruity esters swim within this amateurish brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the cloudy dark beige.
-Carbonation was very low, which doesn’t make sense at all for this type of brew. But perhaps this was the bar’s fault?
-The yeasty omnipresence neared astringence at times.
-The entire flavor profile was not well defined.
-The sugary flavors were a bit caramelized, a bit honeyed.
On tap at Devil Craft, Tokyo.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle- Pour hazy orange with a head that reduces to a collar of big bubbly foam. Aroma is kind of basic, spicy hops, maybe some yeast. The taste is much more Belgian, yeasty and banana esters, it tastes like a Belgian golden ale, not bad.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, yeast, bread, pepper, bubble gum and a hint of curacao. Light-bodied; Pungent yeast flavour up front with a definite belgie characteristic, some lighter malt notes, a hint of earthy hops and a little toffee sweetness. Aftertaste shows mainly malt flavours with a hint of earth, some very light sugars and at the tail end - a little of the complex belgian yeast strain, but not enough to rescue the beer. Overall, a below par offering with some good thoughts, just not well executed. Still, nice to sample this beer that I’d never find on the East Coast, but wish I would have packed something better in my bag across the country. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Pear Delicatessen in Seattle, Washington on 11-February-2013 for US$3.83 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 21-March-2013.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at Q-Brick. Amber-orange with lace. Estery nose, with peaches, earthy. Fruity, earthy flavor, again esters and stone fruits. Quite bland and boring. Doesn’t really go anywhere.

22 ounce bottle. Pours a light copper with a small off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, spice, and hops. Taste is malt, bananas, cloves, yeast, and grass. Decent but not too exciting.
