2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a golden yellow color with aroma of fruits. Taste is similar to a lambic with notes of fruit and alcohol throughout. Overall this beer is light for a strong ale. I’m glad I was able to sample one.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Let this bottle warm a bit from the fridge. Poured with a large, foamy, frothy, fluffy, slightly thick, off white head that slowly settles and some lace. Color is a clear golden amber with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is yeast, hop, malt, spice, vineous. Flavor is a little on the sweet side with some bitterness and carbonic tang to balance. Body is a little soft, full, and carbonation is very good. Finish is like flavor and of medium length. This beer is virtually indistinguishable from the Belgians and super easy drinking. It’s not that it’s so unique in its characteristics as it is in its being so true to style. Great beer!

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A light saison-style aroma. Golden yellow with a huge thick creamy head. This is definitely Belgian-style but for some reason, it doesn’t sit right with me. A bit too grassy malty, but really like some sort of aluminum flavor, which is weird for a glass bottle. Quite disappointed to be honest.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL bottle. Poured crystal-clear medium golden with a tall, well-retained, sticky white head.. looked good in the glass. The aroma picked up lots of bananas, vanilla, and Belgian yeast over pale and grainy malts.. sweet and warm impression with what seemed like undertones of hot peppers (very faint). The flavor found honey and bready malts at the core, with spicy black pepper, dusty yeast, and a blend of bananas and vanilla around.. warm and sugary on the edges.. again a hint of pepper beneath.. too heavy-handed with the spices and sweetness for my liking. Medium-bodied with too much carbonation on the palate that impeded the flow.. long finish.. not bad, but it needed some subtlety to really be enjoyable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Pours a nice unfiltered yellow orange color with a big white head. The nose is spicy with lots of yeast and orange with a full and fruity apricot and light husky malt note. The flavor has a full body and a rich maltiness accented by the belgian yeasts. Candi sugar and citrus notes in the tail with a clean finish and a light lingering yeast note. Very nice.
