4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light slightly hazy gold with massive 4 finger head and artful lacing. Aroma is grass, hay, lemon peel, citric tartness, and spice. Taste is lemon peel, spice, hay, then a tart/lightly bitter finish. Body is light, oily, highly effervescent, long tangy bitter finish, not a hint of 8.5%abv. Overall, delicious and champagne-like; a great value at $10 a bottle and definetly something I would seek again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 750ml bottle into a Victory snifter. Pours with a TON of fluffy white head. Little to no lacing but a tiny bit of foam on the top. Really beautiful golden hue. Just as a Belgian Golden should be. Aromas of alcohol, flowers and Tang. Mouthfeel is very moderate, if a bit over carbonated. Letting it sit for a while really helps out and brings out the flavor. Tastes of alcohol, funk, lemon, flowers, hops and chalk. A really solid beer. I like it and I’ll probably buy it again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Naja’s. Hazy blonde. Some light pear esters and spicy hops on the nose. Light spicy palate with some sweet, pineapple/pear accents. Not bad, but not worth passing up a Duvel for or anything like that.
