3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 c&c from South Bay Drug. Cork ejected with a bang. Pours dishwater gold with a 4 finger frothy/foamy off-white head. Smells like a tripel; kandi, yeast/spice. Medium body; frothy carb. There’s a strong spice/herb/hop flavor that is dominant. Or maybe that’s rye. It’s incredibly floral/herbal, and it’s even bitter. So lots of complex flavor. It’s strongly flavored. Finishes like a dry hopped tripel. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Corked bottle. Poured a cloudy deep amber with an average rocky off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit, hops and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex bittersweet and yeast flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Exceeded my expectations.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Cloudy straw-colored ale with a small, wispy, white head. Decent retention. The spicy, bready aroma offers lots of lemon zest accompanied by clove and coriander. Light to medium-bodied with biting carbonation. The flavor and finish, although crisp and bready, is also moderately sweet, spicy and herbal. Lemon zest here as well. Generously bittered with grassy hops. Overall, very enjoyable. Much better than the sum of its parts.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very pale golden coloured beer. The nose is surprisingly light and soft. There is a touch of soft berryish fruitiness as well as some light spice, but it is quite light. The palate is quite soft – there is a touch of Belgian malt but the yeast and spice are very subdued. Light lingering spice. It’s nice, but much more subtle than I would have imagined.
