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.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a bright hazy yellow with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma is floral & peppery... it has bright citrusy notes & some earthiness akin to wet limestone. It’s a somewhat mild bouquet but a very nice one indeed.
The flavor is floral and citrusy, there is a touch of honey-like sweetness up front but form there is spicy and generally dry particularly in the finish. The beer has some light banana and some herbal bitterness.
Way way different than Friendship Beer a’la Green Flash!
