Pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Fruity, estery aroma with hints of spices on the nose. Some hay and earthy notes as well. Taste is moderate sweet with a light bitter touch into the aftertaste. Full body with average levels of co2.

On tap at Garden Cafe on Broadway. Nice aroma but perhaps not memorable. Nice opacity. Taste is stellar, with a nice hint of coriander thatís not overpowering. Palate is rather cleaner than I expected. Overall a stellar go-to beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at Haymarket (thought it was a one-off). Hazy yellow tan. Has that Pils look in a way. Steady, foamy, off-white head. Not sure what to think of this one. High fermentation temperatures notes, odd, funky, borderline off. Kind of tastes like a juiced imperial pils. Some mild but sweet banana clove notes. Mild and wacky herbal tones. Not dialed in, an odd beer. Certainly has some nice Belgian yeast tones and a pleasant noble hop balance, but this just doesnít come together. Not commanding the premium price. Herbal saison-tripel-golden. Unique, almost has an old school belgo-feel, which I can appreciate. Grew on me a little.

Bottle. Inviting apricot aroma.Lots of fruit, apricots, peaches, grapefruit. Sweetness that slowly slides into bitterness. Clever.

Bottle. Hazy golden yellow pour with a smaller white head. Clove and yeast, fruity esters, and a bit of hop zing late. Good carbonation and a touch dry late. Really nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Whole Foods Westlake, Seattle; bottled 12/13/13
Hazy golden color with medium sized creamy head. Aroma of pale malt, soap, plastic, spices; why the soap and plastic?
Smooth mouthfeel; pale malt flavor with a light cereal tone, light residual sweetness, and evident spice profile, although it takes a bad turn, with evidence of anise and soap; bitterness just a bit above the Belgian average.
In my book, another fake Belgian beer, or a pure American style that I donít fancy. Iím glad I didnít pay much for it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, honey yellow pour, lasting light carbonation and an aroma of sweet flowery malt and hints of hops. Flavor is also nice malt base, cloves, some sweet floral honey and just little hop dryness on the finish. Solid

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Wow, serious brew, yet can just about drink the hell out of it. Very true to style. Great body, excellent finish, though a tad rich. Nice appearance with good head retention. Exotic aroma. Odd in that on one hand it seems balanced, yet itís also got some extremes. A little boozy too.
