3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kettering bottle. Pours a light gold color with a small, bubbly, white head. Fairly classic Belgian ale aroma: slightly sweet, yeasty, and a hint of alcohol, Flavor matches the aroma with the addition of spice and banana. Pretty true to form. Fine overall.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This starts with a mild wheat and spice aroma, and pours a hazy straw with a large white head. Very light on the palate, with lots of carbonation and a mild spice flavor. There are some citrus hints as well as sweetness from the malts. For $6 a 750mL bottle, I’ll definitely be picking up some more of this, and laying some down to see how it holds up.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong aroma is mainly yeasty with a malty undertone and a butterscotch hint. Pours a slightly hazy solar yellow with a thick, fluffy, and rather persistent white head. Satisfying flavor has malty, banana and yeasty notes, not overly complex or distinctive but still acceptable and a little more. Smooth texture has a firm, if not persistent, fizz and leaves a yeasty, slightly fruity finish. Overall, decent if not great.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Trader Joe’s in Davis, CA. Pours hazy gold with a foamy 3 finger white head. Aromas of pineapple, banana and ginger. Med body. Flavor starts a little earthy. For me the flavor is banana hints, ginger hints, pineapple - primarily because it hits my tongue as a bit acid? And that pleasant fruity, spicy earthiness persists into the finish. Very tasty.
