2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is like soap. Like seriously like soap. A bit of grape must.
Looks strange almost like a shandy. Like very full bodied lemonade.
Taste is like the smell... Smooth... But like soap. A little dry with some grape must or something but really soap....
Palate is mid body and smooth.
Strange overall. Easyish to drink bit really tasted like soap. Lighter definitely not what I would call a strong ale. Belgian or not. Pass for sure.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had on tap at brewery as part of flight. They have actually managed to make a pretty drinkable belgian, which coming from me, says a lot. Pours a clear golden color with decent head retention. Taste is super crisp and clean with a hint (enough) of the Belgian flavors (spice, pepper) coming through but not overpowering. Finish is refreshing and somewhat dry. Really great Belgian. Would actually order a pint of this on a warm summer day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft - Fruit esters, green apple and golden malts with a touch yeast. Pale gold and a thin white head. Pale malt sweetness, lots of yeast and booze. Not my style.

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.
