[ Tap ][ Wedge ][ 16oz ][ Stemmed Flute ][ $7 ][ 2/7/14 ]
>> Thanks Leighton, Neilsen, et al. for the share. Clear golden pour with weaker foam. Nose is vegetal/parsnip, sugar, soap, toilet cleaner. Taste is sticky, chemical, papery. Probably my least favorite at Wedge today.

phaleslu (5867) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 20, 2014
Draft taster at the brewery. Pours a cloudy gold with a small white head. Notes of bready and sweet doughy malts, apricot, sugar, florals, and pie crust. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Good strong Belgian ale. Not complex, but simple and satisfying.

on tap @ Wedge Brewing --- Cloudy dirty gold, thin rim head, no lace. Taste is fizzy caramel malt that adds a good dose of coriander and orange in the palate, moving to a lightly hopped finish. Really good - like Hoegaarden on steroids. Recommended.

On tap. Pours a hazy pale gold with an orange hue and a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has sweet grains and light fruit with a decent Belgian spice note coming through. Flavor is very perfumey with light fruits and sweet grains underlying.

NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2014
On tap @ Wedge. Pours a murky dark orange appearance with little head. A lot of banana and spice in the nose. A bit tangy. Tangerine, grapefruity flavor. Some bread. Some booze. OK.

Draft to taster at Appalachian Vintner. Looks good; a mostly transparent gold with white lacing. Smells solid; Belgian yeast and relates spices with a fairly sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

Great gobbly. This smells and tastes like banana bread in a glass. Barely there lclear light yellow in the glass! No head and no lacing. I freaking love banana bread. Taste and smell are derived from yeast alone according to Geoff at Appalachian Vintner. Wow! Good sh!t right here !
