3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium copper gold with a very short lived head. Aroma is floral hops and spices. Taste is somewhat astringent and sharp. The hops dominate the flavor and add to the beer’s bitterness. Too much carbonation for my liking but still a good beer.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. One of the most active pours I’ve ever witnessed, with frenetic carbonation driving bubbles in every direction, up and and down, making this golden beer look like a chemical experiment, a bit of sediment in there too. The beer delivers a nice sharp, floral yet spicy aroma. The beer drinks with a nice Belgo-character, with alcohol evident, but easy going. Big time effervescence here, and quite a pleasant drink.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Hazy orange with lots of sediment. Small white head. Interesting aroma has Belgian yeast, pilsner malt, lemon. The flavour is much of the same, with a little berry sweetness right before the end, and then some solid bitterness. Interesting, without being outstanding in any way.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 22oz. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pour a slightly hazy yellow with a bright white head. The nose is very floral with notes of grapefruit and lemon. Surprisingly sweet on the tongue. This one could use a little more balance. The citrus comes through but the florals border on overwhelming. High effervescence and a light to medium mouthfeel. I can’t say this one did much for me.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
translucent straw with bubbly white head and yeasty particulates. medium body with medium-high carbonation.
rosehips and grapefruity hops, metallic wild yeast, cracker-like malt.
taste: stale hop bitterness, fruitiness, dry metallic yeast notes, and light cracker-like malt.
if fermented with a rounder, cleaner yeast, this would be really good.
