4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Vine Street brewpub. Clear brilliant gold. Beautiful aroma of candy sugar, pineapple juice and apricot, with some sweet Belgian yeast. Excellent. Smooth, rich, yeasty and complex. Starts sharp and bitter but quickly mellows into a sweet and malty brew. Vibrant fruity yeastiness as on the nose--apricot and a touch of pineapple. Ain’t no wrong in this brew!woody,

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Fluffy, foamy white head on a clearer orangeish yellow with lots of tiny rising carbonation bubbles. Earthy hops and lots of yeastiness and light passion fruits in the aroma. Yeasty and a bit of bittersweet sour fruits with a touch of hay-like hop in the finish. Slick medium body with softer carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle) Big fluffy white head atop a foggy golden body. Aroma of grain, yeast, banana, pear; mild hops, orange. Light bodied, very carbonaceous. Crips, refreshing citrus orange peel, yeast, grass and pine hops. Crips and light--makes me wish I were drinking this outside on a beautiful, sunny day.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from 750, cloudy golden with slight hue of orange, huge white head. Fruity nose, little bready with floral hints. Hoppy for a belgian. Great aroma, taste was smooth, on the sweeter side. Nice lively, medium to full bodied. Thoroughly enjoyable beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It snells of citrusy hops with a bready ending. It pours a hazy golden body with a thick bubbly white head that leaves awesome lacing. It tastes of a bit bitter at first followed by a nice lingering sweetness. It is a medium bodied beer with a sticky texture and somewhat high on the carbonation level. Overall this is a beer I would drink again even with the $9 price tag.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is what a hefeweizen would taste like if topped with a carton of Newman’s Own Lemonade. There is overwhelming acidity and citrus flavor bouncing off of the brew, and it sometimes feels welcoming and other times a little overstayed. A pint is bound to make you feel like you drank a gallon pureed lemon peel. Decent but not without some reward.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample on Day 2 of the Aces & Ales Strong Beer Festival on 08/13/2011. This beer is a mostly clear straw color with a medium fluffy white head that diminishes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Hoppy, yeasty aroma with a touch of malt. Medium body with flavors of hops, zesty fruit, yeast and malt. The finish is moderately hoppy and leaves a yeast note behind. A little disjointed overall but decent.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle into a tulip glass. Purchased fairly fresh.
A - Nice copper/amber body and an off white soapy head.
S - Lots of hoppy aroma. Grapefruit, orange, pine, bready yeast, and spice.
T - Very hoppy. Almost IPA like with some belgian notes. Spice and bready yeast. Lots of sweet citrus and some malt. Slightly bitter finish.
O - Pretty good. Reminded me a bit too much of an IPA. I would have liked for the spices to come out a bit more. Worth the price though.
