2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 31, 2005 Bottle: Golden, large white frothy head, light carbonation, rises very quickly, nice lacing. Not a lot going on in the aroma, very pale bready malts, subtle pear or apple. Very weak flavor profile, slight astringent malt/grain on first sip, but other than that nothing. Extremely weak body, with a mouthfeel that is very slightly wheaty. Finish... what finish? This was almost void of any aroma or flavor. At least when you smell/taste nothing, you can’t say its nasty. I would sum this up in one single word... BLAND!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from Public House in the Venetian. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, apples, grapes, apricot, candi sugar, grass, and straw. Flavor of straw, apples, grapes, wheat, grass, bready malts, and a metallic note late. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts juicy and ends dry and metallic. Odd beer.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2006 NABA ’05: Golden hue. Nice citrusy yeast and pale malt character. The flavor has an average sized body with a bit of over the top orange & hop notes but comes down to a light mouthfeel in the finish. I’m going to line up a bottle of this once it comes to Boise.
Bottle:Pours a crystal clear amber color with big puffy white head and plenty of carbonation and complete sheets of lacing. The nose is ripe with corriander and earthy yeast and peppery spicy smells. The balance between all this and the hops is excellent. The flavor is a bit thin, whereas most belgian beers of this type run around 6-7% alcohol, this is nearly half that. Like the difference between a pale lager and its NA equivalent, lots of sweet worty malts and a thin body and mouthfeel. Refreshing and easy drinking naturally. The finish is dry, musky and a bit chalky. Overall this is a good quaffing beer but the low alcohol limits imposed by Utah really cut into what thie beer could be. I salute the brewery for wringing this much flavor into such a low gravity beer.
