4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
sweet orange mangoey pineapple belgian yeast aroma with some slight spice notes in there as well, definately the best smelling belgian ale I have had in a long timeslight citrusy hop notes as well sits at a slightly hazy yellow first taste is slightly farmhouse like with some notes of sourness and finishes with a slight hop bitterness that is refreshing and adds an amazing touch to the complexity of this beer im getting a slight cheese like taste as well in there with some slight orange/spice notes in there as well a light soap like taste that I associate with saisons, that is not at all comparable to the taste you get from something like a keystone light, yet adds a little touch to the taste, sits with a small white head, honestly this is a highly complex beer that should be cherished after proper understanding of the different styles of belgian beer killer beer a heavier saison with some more hop notes then saisons as well, truely a treat to have

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
my first Bruery rating! last bottle of this at my local shop so I grabbed her. 750 Ml bottle. Pours a golden yellow with a fluffy pure white head 4 fingers strong. That lasts all the way through. Lots o carbonation as well. The smell starts a bit piney with some Belgium yeast in there. As the drink went down I sensed some fruit like fresh cut pineapple. A little booze and spice note on top when first sniffed however. Taste is a dry slight bitter but ends in some lime and pine with grass. A good first experience with Bruery

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours golden color with huge frothy white head. Aroma sour light fruits. Taste fairly straightforward Belgian ale with malts, light fruits, spices. Pine and grapefruit hops on the finish, really quite brief. Palate thick and a bit oily. Mild alcohol apparent. I am not a big fan of Belgian styles with a lot of hops but this seemed to work pretty well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750 ml bottle received from my buddy joetheyounger a year ago. Pours a clear-ish golden amber hue with two fingers of white foam. Aroma of tropical fruit (pineapple, mango) as well as more temperate fruit (pear, lemon, and other citrus), sweet malts, floral hop notes, some Belgian yeast, some booze, and hints of spice (saison-style as well as spicy hops). Flavor of sweet malts, light caramel, and some sticky hop notes (citrus and spice). Unfortunately, there is noticeable alcohol in the flavor which is distracting and a little surprising since this is not too high an ABV level. Semi-dry and lightly sweet finish. Not a bad Belgian strong but the alcohol take away somewhat. (305, 486)

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours light yellow/golden in appearance with a large foamy white head. The aroma is fairly tame for a imperial ipa with notes of floral hops, yeasty spice, and some slight sweetness. Flavor is spicy and hoppy with a thick somewhat awkward texture with huge carbonation. Tiny bit of light fruits and sweetness but mostly overpowered by the hops.
