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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft and bottle. Clear straw white head. Bottle had more head than draft. Sweet pale malt yeasty pineapple. Tastes like a Belgian triple and I don’t like Belgian triple. Not bad but not for me.

Sample draft at the Stone tasting in Tallahassee. This Belgian strong has everything you love in Belgian beer, nice fruit overtones and a great flavor, but sticks out from the crowd by providing a nice hop kick in the finish. Very good.

22 oz bottle poured deep yellow and slightly orange with a small white head. Orange, pineapple, and mango aromas along with the bread-like yeast backbone. Wow, a grapefruit flavor sticks out at me along with some peaches and some herbal hops. My favorite VE by far! Nice job.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a heavily carbonated clear golden yellow with a medium fluffy white head. The aroma is bread, yeast, floral hops, some spice. The taste is quite complex. I pick up lots of yeast and more of a brown bread in the flavor. There is taste of dark fruits, some floral and earthy hops with a bit of spice. The alcohol is masked quite well and I also pick up some citrus notes in as well.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Good lacing. Aroma is peppery with a little banana and alot of citrusy hops. Taste is more of the same, mostly hops with a strong belgian yeast backbone. Finishes very dry and very bitter. Good stuff, like a Belgian IPA. Medium body and carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a slightly hazy golden yellow with a very creamy white head about an inch or two tall. The aroma was a tart citrus one with some lemon. There was a light amount of carbonation bubbles rising in the glass. The initial taste was tart with the flavor of lemon. The flavor developed a nice sweetness in the middle along with a nice hop bite. There was a sense of a thickness to the beer towards the finish as the hops bitterness lingered for awhile along with a mild alcohol warmth too. This was very refreshing to drink

Raw bread dough with light floral and slighty resinous hops and toffee. Firm mouthfeel with fine carbonation. Sweetish caramel and medium herbal bitterness that blooms in the finish and sticks around with more doughiness.
