2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber color, with a slightly off-white head that settles slowly. Malty aroma, some notes of caramel and very faint smokey aroma. The taste is malty, some smoked notes in there, with some yeasty taste later on. Not my favourite although still ok.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden with a medium white head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of fruity esters, light wheat flour and even lighter smoke. Taste is that of a standard belgian pale ale, fruity and malty. It isn’t cloying, though, and lightly bitter. Bananas and pears. Some metallic notes. Body is medium, carbonation medium-high. Mouthfeel is slightly thin at times but nothing disturbing. Overall a fair belgian ale, but where is the smoke?!

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Hazy amber brown, head that reduces to little wisps, no lace. Taste is carbonation edged malt, just a bit of smoke, and a bit of bourbon. All moves straight to a watery short finish. A little too understated to qualify as Unibroue. Not recommended.

"to say the smoke is light would be an understatement. i don’t know if i could tell it was there if A)i didn’t know ahead of time, and B)wasn’t looking for it. this is just an average belgian ale other than that...but I gotta dock it a little extra for claiming to be something it isn’t.
