3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can poured into tulip. Pale orange, faint haze, no real head. Spicy clove, plum, and biscuits in the nose. Fruity, peppery and cookie dough flavor. An element artificially flavored apple juice. Dry finish with a candi sugar taste and ethanol warmth. Light creamy mouthfeel. It’s amateurish and overstated, no finesse... about what you’d expect from Belgian ale in a can.

Can at restaurant. Thick yellow color, white head. Bittersweet taste with fruits, wheat, earthy notes and coriander. Smooth body with refreshing fruits combined with earthy notes. Bittersweet finish with banana and citrus. Excellent, quirky brew.

12oz can. Rating #35. Hazy copper amber pour with a white head. Sweet fruity aroma, picking up some banana and pineapple. Similar flavor with a little hop bite and a light toast in the finish, nice stuff. (2755)

Seems to be my early summer session beer. Orange pour with white head. Not cloudy, but not clear. Smells of orange, coriander and some light wheat esters. Taste is orange vanilla into coriander and crisp lingering fruit finish. Best thing out of upslope in a can right now.

12oz can from stumpyiliz. Thanks aaron. Pours a cloudy dark gold with a half finger of wgite head. Aroma of wheat and corriandar with a little nutmeg and orange zest. Taste os light sweet. Wheat and corriandar with more citrus. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, not bad. The alcohol is well hidden and this would be great outside drinking beer. Thanks!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can at home picked up at Mile High. Pour is hazy orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Clove, citrus, banana, biscuit, straw, a touch of bubblegum, coriander, and floral hops in the aroma. Taste is citrusy, sweet banana, clove, yeasty, bready, somewhat wheaty, grassy, and spicy with a touch of sweet bubblegum and lightly bitter finish. Thick mouthfeel with high carbonation. Tastes like an IPA with Hefeweizen yeast and pretty damn refreshing. I kind-of dig this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a thin off white, poorly retained, head, with minimal lacing, over a slightly hazy, gold (SRM 6) body....nose is light malts, many light spice tones, including allspice, clove.....taste is slightly sweet, mild allspice, clove, hints of lemon peel, light apple, pear....mouth feel medium, carbonation adds a moderate fizz. This is a pleasant beer, but a bit high in ABV to really meet the style. The aromas and flavors are somewhat stronger and more complex than usually found in a Belgian Pale Ale. It is more of a Belgian Golden Strong or a light Triple. This is technically well made and is a nice beer, but to hit the style it needed less esters and phenolics as well as a lower ABV, This could be done with a yeast change and manipulating fermentation temperature.
