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.

This one was... meh. Rather disappointing as I've enjoyed some of Sound's other brews. This one was just extremely boring.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clearish gold, few bubbles. Nose of Belgian yeast, spicy, golden raisin, white pepper, dry chalky. Taste of umami, Belgian yeast, very dry, very lightly sweet, weird, highly carbonated.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite generic, like a macro lager, with corn / bready malts and not much else. Flavour is quite rusty and metallic, with copper and metallic notes. Nothing Belgian about this. Very off-flavoured and metallic. Not good at all.
