3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml. Aroma- Spicy, sweet fruit from belgian phenols and little tartness. Appearance-Cloudy light orange. Large persistant white head. Taste- The head itself very happy and grassy. More of the fruit from the aroma some spiciness a little bit of that american hop character. Sharp bitterness and moderatley high dryness. Not bad. I think I prefer the breweries on their own but a noble effort none-the-less.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Caged and Corked. A bit fuzzy, a medium well saturated yellow. Nice retention, thin amount of white head. Lots of stuff springing out of the nose, wow. I detect rye, bubblegum, lemon, and coriander notes. Taste is very spicy with the coriander out front, then the bubblegum, then a very dry finish. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Rated on 5-13-2013 (Corked and caged bottle) This beer’s appearance is a huge smooth white head with a long retention, hazy pale yellow body, slow rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is lemon, herbal hops, yeast, wheat, malt, spicy, and hint of pepper. The flavor is sweet, wheat, spicy, peppery, malt, and hops in the background. The mouthfeel is zesty and this beer is light-medium bodied. This beer is very quaffable and has a lot going on in the aroma and flavor. It is very good tasting, worth trying and a beer I will drink again if it comes my way.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the End of History tasting. Aromas are zesty lemon, lemon grass, and biscuit. Pours pale with light lacing and good carb. Taste is dulled lemon zest, floral/lemon grass, and a hint of rye. Light and easy in the mouth with a warm malt feel but no detectable gravity. This is dangerously easy to gulp. Well done.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Moderate aromas of grain and hay for the malt, grass and lemon for the hops, musty basement for the yeast, with hints of spicy apple and pepper. Head is large fizzy/frothy, white with excellent crusty lacing and is fully lasting. Color is hazy light amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, slick with a fizzy carbonation and finishes moderately alcoholic. When this Belgian Strong Ale starts off cold it’s light and refreshing, as it warms the complexity and gravity catches up. Very nice.
