3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft into a tulip glass at the brewpub. orange brown color. Massive head which fades out after a minute, leaving the glass 1/5 empty. Sweet subdued aroma. Herby, sugary, yeasty tastes. Smooth, mellow carbonation. The yeast dominates a little too much in my opinion, lacks subtlety. Sugary, somewhat typical of US-Belgian beers.

draft at 3F....nice appearance: deep, muddled apricot-like color with a think white head....aroma was citrussy for the most part....taste was very citrusy and refreshing. a lot of grapefruit and a little pine added to boot. it had a nice balance of yeast as well and had a slightly bitter finish in the end.

On tap at the brewery Dark Lord Weekend.
A long-lasting creamy white head crowns this slightly cloudy, medium gold brew.
Fragrant aroma, flowery, spicy, herbal. Some lavender.
The flavor is slightly sweet with a flowery finish.
Quite different. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft tulip at Floyds. Puffy Belgian head, which is starting to leave a lot of lace behinf already. Pils colored, but again with a bit of haze. Smell still shows the usual Floyds hop slap and a touch of yeast. Taste is hoppy at first, then firms up in citrus hops that slide in some citrus from the Belgian malt and yeast. Good Belgian pale ale taste, maybe thrown off style by Floyds addicition of alphas, but that’s to the advantage of us beer geeks.
