3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 !

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with a white head. A bit of fruit on the nose. A bit of lime in the tongue. There’s also a slight Belgian yeast thing. Finishes clean. Hides its alcohol well. Closer to an Abbey triple than anything Ellen solid but not amazing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with thin off-white head that leaves light lacing on the way down. Aroma of belgian yeast, spicy hops, and a hint of fruity esters. Taste is much more of the esters, with the spices coming out more as the beer warms. Really easy to drink and crisp on the mouth, dangerous when the batch I had was coming in around 10.8% instead of 9%.
