3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear, bright, very light orange-gold with a dense, fine, quickly-dissipating white head. Aroma of fruity fermentation esters with citrus noes--orange--along with yellow fruit hops notes alongside light sweet malt and some alcohol. Sweet malt and alcohol up front in the flavor surrounded by a fairly dense hops bitterness profile with some spice and yellow fruit flavors. The body comes across as strong, yet light, with a lot of carbonation and a long, bitter, slightly hot finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden with a dissipating foam head. Aroma is malty bread like sweet, light lemon and banana notes, belgium yeast, subtle hop presence. Taste had a delightful spicy bitterness, noticeable sweetness, malty, minor lemon, and yeast. Overall i enjoyed this. It had a good body and a consistent flavor from the beginning to the finish.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Belgian strong ale with elements of amerian ale and german wheat. There self description is quite accurate: nuances of pepper, clove, and banana from the Belgian yeast strain, and the resiny citrus notes from the American hops blend together nicely to provide a complex aromatic character. The taste is spicy, hoppy and fruity, with a very dry and a pleasant bitter end.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Interesting one, borders on a IIPA with the thick malty presence. Hoppy, but has belgian candy notes to it. There’s definetely two sides to this beer. Sticky, hoppy, only slightly belgian to me though.

22oz bottle: pours golden brown with slow fading white head, could pass for bud light but because its a belgian strong ale ill let it slide. aroma only a hint of malt not much going on here, flavor not bad has the classic belgian taste but is a little lighter almost like westmallie triple. good beer but could use work.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours into the glass gold with an enormous white head. Aroma has little hop aroma and a bit of a vinegar like scent. I think this is possibly an infected bottle.
