3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub - Holy crap--this was 9.5%?!? No clue. Pours golden with a filmy off-white head. Nose is fruity hops with dusty yeast, perfume, dry breadiness, and a little pine. Fruity yeast in the taste, with melon, honey, grass, and a long sweet bread finish. Biting carbonation, slick and smooth, with a fairly big body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Sugar Maple. Little Eiffel stands in the Archway. Ruddy amber with a creamy off-white crown and some lacing. Aroma is spot on to experimental style with citrus, lemon, yeast, and a bit of earthy and tropical notes. You wouldn’t know this was 9.5% as the alcohol is hidden well. It’s rather tasty too with up front yeast and fruit backed by citrus, caramel, earthy/funky notes, sweet malt, lemon and a bit of tropical fruit. Bitterness evident but not overpowering. Not a huge Belgian IPA fan but this liked this Saison/IPA combo that pays homage to the Pixies. Little Eiffel, Little Eiffel.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Vintage, I was kind of skeptical of this one at first, but this really impressed me, pours a clear bright gold with a white head and a little bit of lacing, the aroma jumps out with a ton of citrus and fruit, a little bit of barnyard funk as well, but the citrus and hops pretty much dominate, the flavor has tons of tropical fruit and citrus on the front end with a lot of hops, but the finish is still kind of sweet, kind of weird at the same time, the 9.5% is pretty much hidden, enjoyed this one.
