3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2004 The aroma of this brew was hard for me to make out. It's initial pour yielded an invigorated head of small white bubbles that left no lacing and has a cloudy light brown color. My first taste had an initial uh oh reaction but later settled into flavor that I could not identify. Not sure how to rate the taste of this brew. Not a bad taste, but not great. After a while I could taste the alcohol content of this brew. Perhaps 3 good brews in a night is too much for good ratings! Hmmmm....

Clear amber with a huge head. Alcoholic smell with peaches and lemons. Silky smooth but very harsh and alcoholic, feels musty. Palate is left syrupy.

2.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Deep color. Fizzy head, mostly diminishing. Nice lace. yeast aroma was very displeasing for some reason. Can't pinpoint. Mediciny, funky, solvent. i don't know. Light fruity aroma underneath. In the mouth it seemed harsh. Ive had about 6 belgian ales over the past 2 weeks, which i loved. Something here is not right. i will re-rate at another date.
