2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle #5 from the Tuatara Mix 6 Pack. Not sure about dates on these as no date info on bottles or pack, but the two yeasty beers in this pack are pooched. No haziness, no dominant yeast character, just bubbly, apply tasting beers. This one survived a little better than the hefe, probably because of the abv, but still nothing exciting. Will have to rerate fresher stuff.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Just woke up. Dammit. Gotta do a light speed review. Smelled okish but note its overly fruity and is missi g the spice. The Belg side exists in a dull state. This has qualities of a belg ale and qualities of a buch of other stuff just tossed in. Sure it works but so what. Lemon orange weak pepper, yeast, meh. Just a mixed up beer. Not a bad beer but one that doesn’t stick to a style well.

3.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A mature beer with a strong, pleasant, lingering palate. Whisky notes hint at the mid strength of this ale. I enjoy the subtle spicy taste and citrus flavours.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Palate, Hamilton
Golden with Belgian esters on the nose. Dry and fairly hot with higher alcohols on the nose and mouth. Lively carbonation. Not particularly clever.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden yellow with small white head that amounts to a light white cover. Aromas of spice and sweet fruit. Flavours consist of spice, citrus bitterness, some maltiness and a touch of booze.

(330ml bottle) Purchased as part of a mixed Tuatara 6-pack for $22 at Cook Street Liquors. Quick dissipating white frothy head atop a clear amber body. Good yeast a citrus yet there is an odd milkiness throught the palate. Average.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear, pale golden with a dense, white head. Aroma of fruit, yeast and diacetyl. Medium body with accents of sweet fruit and yeast and a somewhat tired finish. Not exactly a thrilling Belgian style ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Some hops, aroma was pear and mandarin, taste was mild spiciness and unfortunately the malt was a bit sour. Finish was a bit creamy. Not as great as I was hoping for, no idea what happened to the malt here.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle pours a golden color with a small white head that leaves some spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma is fruity with some citrus and yeast. Taste is fruity and grainy malt sweetness with a mild citrusy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. Overall, a decent Belgian ale that is quite tasty and recommended to try.
