Tap. Hazy amber with white dissipating head. Almost smells melony, a bit perfumy, and like cotton candy- but all faint. Really sweet and bubble gummy, then grainy, then hoppy. A bit disjointed, finish is both sweet and dry.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler from the brewery on 5/19/11. Pours a clear golden color with a large creamy tan head. Good head retention and lacing. Looks quite nice. Aroma of floral hops with a bit of plum and other fruity notes. The taste is bitter hops with some citrus and herbal notes. Not much else. Not bad, but not very Belgian.
