2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle thanks to the bosses had at home. Alround rating: Massive carbonation again, not as bad as the wheat, but huge all the same. Soem sort of dusty grainy brown and earthy malt, some light spice, dusty yeast character. Theres nothing holding it together and its hard to drink.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at the Weekend of Tarts After Tasting.
Golden brown with no head. A fair bit of pukey malt in this one. Some card too. Really, it’s all over the place and having some fairly major issues. Fruity malt, some grassy hops underneath but it’s out of order.

Poured from 750, bottle 4.10.09, courtesy of SamGamgee. Poured an amber/glod with huge white bubbly head. Nose was very yeasty and fruity, kind of like a Saison. Semi-sweet malty flavor, just a bit on the sour side. Very nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle courtesy SamGamgee. Pours a hazy, opaque, orange-copper color with a big billowing white head. Aromas of lemons and caramel, maybe orange zest too. Honeyed caramel malt flavor with a light lemony tinge on top. Some pepper and possibly clove too. Pours overly effervescent but after some time and swirling it becomes more drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great nose. Pepper and yeast. Grapes too? Bright clear amber in the glass with a big bubbly head and lace. Light and fuzzy in the mouth. Not a full mouth ale. Nose is better than flavor to me. Bitter and flat on the palate. Carbonation fluffs up in the mouth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (750ml corked). thanks to MagicDave for this one. Bottle likely a little past its best. Cloudy gold with an average fizzy white head. Aroma of slightly spoiled fruit and classic dry Belgian Wit spiciness - a little stale. Tasted the same - sweet, dryly spicy, fruity but a little sour. Average body, solid carbonation, quite yeasty/spicy in the linger - ehhhhh. Even fresh, I doubt it was awesome.

Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet with notes of malt, spicy hops, grapefruit, and flowers. The flavor is sweet with notes of matl, caramel, yeast, and straw, leading to a dry, spicy, and bitter finish. The body is thin. Thanks Papsoe for sharing.
