3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at WW. Moderately cloudy golden pour, only a medium head, looks a bit less robust than the other WW beers sampled. Moderate funk and overripe fruit in the nose, heavy and cloying in many ways. Mouthfeel a bit heavy, and there’s some heat on the tongue. Flavors do reveal some brighter and drier notes, but not quite enough to strike the appropriate balance to me. Decent but was hoping for better.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with some champagne like carbonation and a thin white head. Has a a nice Belgian yeast thing with some clove on the nose. Very smooth on the tongue which is a little dangerous since it hides its alcohol so well and they drink so quickly. Finishes with a bit of hop bite. Very solid.
