This stuff finishes dry, but it’s front loaded with this fruity, clean taste that surprised me. It has an apple smell and kind of an apple flavor about it, and sort of a cloudy, amber body that’s nearly orange.

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 doesn’t 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. It’s not too much of any flavor, just the right blend of sweetness to bitter.

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.

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!
