3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Good Beer. It was called a Belgian IPA, but it didn’t taste much like an IPA at all, so I bet this was the stuff. Astringent, not floral, and a bit like an amber. Some honey in the finish. A good brew.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Pours an orange-gold color with a small off-white head. Aroma is hops and Belgian yeast with a small amount of malt and light fruit thrown in. Taste is light fruit and malt up front dissolving into a wonderful Belgian yeast characteristic and an ever-so-slight hop bitterness at the end. Sublimely smooth throughout. Another great job by these guys.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewpub: Deep copper pour with a thin fizzy tan head that fades. Some mild toasted caramel notes with soft Belgian phenolics- not very hoppy in the nose. A tad fizzy on the palate. The flavor has some restrained crystal malt presence underneath some mildly sweet bubblegum phenolics that come through with warmth- evidently Belgian yeast. Mildly hopped with just a touch of soft resins in the finish. Simple, but solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Arrived at the table a clear amber with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the frist quarter of the glass and left just a bit of lace. Pleasant aroma of Belgian yeast, malt and Granny Smith apples. The flavor is a bit more emphatic than the aroma with the same Belgian yeast, malt and Granny Smith apple. Just a bit sweet, but it is a fruity sweetness as opposed to sugary. Very light bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. Enjoyable!
