3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml corked and caged bottle. I meant to drink this on Halloween. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a large cream-colored soapy head with excellent retention; leaves a little lace. Aroma is mostly faint, but it has fruity esters, mineral/metal, unclean. Taste has a nice Belgian yeast character; itís sweet, spicy, savory, grainy, clovey. Mouthfeel is foamy with high carbonation. It has its flaws, but overall this isnít too bad.

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy gold with a 4 finger foamy white head. Aroma is primarily yeast/spice. Quite a bit of various fruit esters. Bubble gum through tropical fruit. Med body or better. Flavor matches the aroma. Itís complex in a light fruity way. Definitely Belgian ale!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 ml. Lightly hazy orange-amber with a huge meringue of foam. Aromas of resin, toffee, light orange zest and banana. Taste is sourish orange, earthy toffee, resiny wood, spicy banana, pepper, and a flash of metal every now and again. Light body is too frothy for my tastes, but well balanced by a moderately bitter, pithy finish. Lots of complexity of flavors, but they just donít quite mesh for me.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml corked bottle pours a bright golden color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is yeasty with some light fruits and mild hops. Taste is a light fruity and malty sweetness with a mild citrus hop bitterness and a yeasty dry finish. Medium in body with generous carbonation which leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate. A nicely done beer for the style and would probably keep many coming back for more including myself.

This one kind of grew on me. At first, it seemed rather bland, even a bit boozy (even at just 7%). As it warmed, I started to get a good deal of nice yeasty , bubblegum and banana, some other subtle yeasty, fruity aromas and flavors. Some piney, woody hop notes, as well. Plus, of course, a bonus appearance point for the cool label.
