3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl oz bottle from Finger Lakes Beverage, served cool in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear deep golden with a decent yellow-light tan head.
Aroma: Lots of rich malty, sweet fruitiness, esters, yeast, lemony citrus notes, light funky tartness, honey, nice.
Palate: Medium+ body, fine, somewhat lazy effervescence.
Flav.: Apple juice, apple esters and booze, quite fruity, very sweet, light lemony citrus, a little yeast, some nice rich light malts, biscuit, honey, more booze; sweet! With limited bitterness and a long, sweet, slightly boozy fruit finish.
What can I say? A somewhat amped-up version of a Belgian style that doesnít usually interest me. Amped-up lack of interest, I suppose.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Great smooth and bold beer. It has great abundance of spicy and fruit flavors that balance it beautifully. Itís not too much of any flavor, just the right blend of sweetness to bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle courtesy of my sister. Clear golden hue capped by a small foamy head with almost no retention. Light citrus, grass, and dull earthiness in the nose. Taste is big cracker sweetness, clove, and flowers. Big full body, light carbonation to assist. A good solid beer.

12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours copper with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of spicy yeast, some caramel malts, a little light fruit, plus light hops. Flavor the same, a little sweet. Average texture. A decent beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear honey color with a medium white head. Aroma has mild ctrus, subtle spice, and a champagney note. Flavor follows suit with a bit of sweetness and some fruity, yeasty esthers...a touch leathery. Mouthfeel is silky and the finish is dry and spicy. Better than expected!

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours pale orange with light particulate matter and a short lived white head. Nose is small, hops backed by malt and spice. Light/medium body, full but unoffensive carbonation, cereal sweetness contrasts hop bitter. Heady fruit flavors with characteristic spice and grain brought forward by the alcohol content. I found it drinkable and distinguished, although lingering bitter aftertaste is my one complaint.
