3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Pour is clear light golden with a modest, fine bubbled white head In this glass. Retention is poor, with light lacing here. The nose lacks the traditional belgian aroma, but there is a heavy grassy, floral hop nose here. overly sweet, grain dominant bready malts are present; theres a bitter hop presence initial, with lemon grass, florals, with a hint of soapiness, moving to sweet bread and I suppose it lacks depth at the finish line. An american double golden ale

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light citrus with an effervescence. Not an overly heavy beer and easy drinking, but on the whole a little disappointing given the pedigree this beer comes from.

Flavor starts moderately acidic, then finishes faintly sweet, lightly acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery with a carbonation between lively and fizzy and has a tart finish. Light and refreshing, and full of Belgian Strong Ale tastes.

Pounds a cloudy syraw gold with red orange highlights. Two fingers of white head. Nose shows citrus rind, some sweet fruit, and tropical stuff. Flavor is pretty rich up front, lots of citrus rind, slightly grassy, dextrinous bready malt notes. Pretty aggressive bitterness.

Bomber. I really dig this beer. Pours a cloudy yellow with a large head. Aromas of floral hops and lemon. Not sure what rose hips smell or taste like, so I can’t comment on that. Taste is pretty bitter with a lingering stickiness. High carbonation. Good.
