3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Naked City. Pours a deep darker lightly clouded golden with a even tight white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Good amount of bubble gum esters with strong amount of banana. Sweet hay and wheat as well very light clove and some white pepper. Quick sweetness up front, moves into a somewhat green banana flavor then a sweat sock spent grain flavor. Finishes on the dry side, but the graininess lingers.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
So we finally meet! This is the first beer out of Sound Brewery and I had a heck of a time finding it on tap as it was going fast. Beautiful frothy white head, dissipates quickly but clings to glass. Cloudy from the chill, apricot color, fruit, yeast, and sugars on the nose. Even cold the beer shows great balance, nice carbonation, and a hearty Belgian quality not often found on the Left Coast. Tasted @ 45, 50, & 60F.
