On tap at Sunset. Wasn’t expecting much given the mediocre reviews, but was pleasantly surprised. Belgian ale base, but the chamomile and grapes are definitely evident.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11/6/10. Bomber. Hazy golden pour with a fizzy off-white head that films to a ring fast. Odd sour aroma that includes floral aspects, funky Belgian yeast, amber sugars, and a hint of tomato. Odd sweet and sour flavor that reminds me of grape juice mixed with sour mix and sprite. Under that there’s a dry graininess beneath the tart.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a hazy golden orange with a medium bubbly white head that left some lacing. Aroma was initially of a lightly sweet American brewed tripel, some some spicy and fruit Belgian yeast notes. This was quickly followed up by the grapes along with some of the chamomile flowers...rounded out by the candi sugar sweetness to round out the nose. Flavor was again initially of a nice actually kind of dry tripel. Leaning towards the spicy Belgian yeast character which I prefer over the more fruity belgians. The grapes are certainly there and possibly helped to dry this beer out. This would be the perfect introduction to your friend who doesn’t like beer but enjoys white wine. Alcohol heat is there a bit, will be interesting to see how this beer is in two years.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
There’s that chemically, Belgian/malt liquor smell. powdered sugar, something spicy ala cardamon. flavor starts with sweet but quickly gets toward the sour, yes like wine, and chamomile—the parts don’t quite come together. fruity aromas in my mouth. hearty yellow color with a tinge of green but the head’s barely there.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(22 ounce bomber - shaker glass) Aroma is of white wine. Pours a yellow translucent color. Taste is acidic, light sweetness, and light bitterness. Dry finish, average to lively carbonation and medium body. I found this beer challenging and it reminded me of white wine, overall a good experience.

This beer pours bright orange with very little foam. The aroma is mild but much like a typical Belgian. There is a lot going on in this beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pale golden, beige cover. Aroma is light spicy, estery, white wine. High effervescent semi creamy body. Taste is lots of white wine grapes that almost makes it border on cider, some spicing in the finish.
