3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery during GABF week 2015. It has a nice gold color, and the palate is good. It is sweet but not overly so, which many of this style seem to be lately. A touch of honey, more earth, which seems to be a trait of many of their beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Taster at Brewers Rendezvous. Pours a thin white head, over a hazy yellow (SRM 3) body.....nose is light fruit with pear, apple....taste is light pear, apple, hints of smoke, barnyard....mouth feel light of medium, alcohol hidden, light acid, finishing clean. This falls into the Belgian Golden Strong, but is a bit light in complexity. BJCP 7/3/12/4/6

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Goblet at the brewery. Pours a dark gold with a small head. I was worried about overpowering esters on this one after having their Belgian pale ale the other night and I was half warranted in my fear. The nose is powerfully yeasty with cloves and light bananas, but itís not necessarily too syrupy or cloying. There are hints at crackers and a woody bite for balance. The palate is medium dense with the flavor concentrating on heavy cloves. There arenít that many fruity notes, considering the style and the rest of the flavor going on. The finish is sort of dry with a crackery note. This is more bluntly yeasty than I like, but itís not to the point of being unenjoyable.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is clear golden in appearance with a small white head - decent lacing. Big fruity, somewhat phenolic, banana, pineapple, musty, and biscuity aroma. Taste is banana, pepper, somewhat alcoholic, fruity, sweet, and coriander with a light burn on the backend. Slick mouthfeel with soft carbonation. OK.
