3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy light straw body.
The aroma is mild overall: coriander, lemon and dry grain.
The taste starts with lemon bitterness, moves to a mild honey sweetness and finishes with a dry bitter note. Good profile.
The texture is silky with right amount of fizz. Excellent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle -
Golden yellow body, clear with a sturdy white cap. Aroma seems pretty traditional of a Belgian ale, soft malt profile, prominant yeast esters, fruity with a touch of light spice. A grassy flavor, a spot of citrusy hops, yeast and lightly spiced. Refreshing and easy to drink.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Low pffft as the cap comes off and low aroma ensues. It hints at fresh guava and peach, and orange sherbet candy. It tickles the nose; it certainly has an alcohol spice to it. The first pour a radiant straw yellow, minute particles held in suspension amongst its fine, well conditioned carbonation. Head is headstrong; held high, a good 2 inches, is a soppy, rocky snow-white mess that leaves a lovely lace. Quite herbal, dry, pasty and well hopped with what I swear is Spelt hops. Herbal, earthy, weedy and slightly floral. Bitter peak before all hops in the finish flushed by subtle fruit esters. Slightly but lightly camphorous, twiggy, candyish. Light on the palate with very soft carbonation. Malt holds its own; quite supple but enough meld and hold balance. This is a strange brew. Got the sense of tasting a moderate ABV kellerbier, and not not a 9% Belgian. It is fresh tasting (my bottle a good 9 months old). Zombie beer. Struggling to walk now. What? Skeletor from He-man. Yeah, on the label, haha, creepy. Creepy, No, slap-slap, a quash of water to the face for wake-up. Likey for completely forgotten reasons!! (75cL, no date stamp, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at Julio’s Liquors. Consumed 9/21/14 while watching football. Hazy golden color with lasting fluffy head. Think lacing until the conclusion of the brew. Aroma has a nice fruity character with some floral hints. Mild perfumey notes.
The flavor has mild Belgian yeast, the fruity hints that I smell. The body is pale malts with sweet grain. As I was drinking this I didn’t realize it was 9%. The body was kind of thin but it helped make it feel like a lower AVB Belgian. Overall, very easy to drink and looking back I would sample it again.
