3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy golden amber color w/ a solid white head. Plenty of yeast in the nose. Also aromas of citrus, bread and grain. Crisp carbonation w/ smooth medium body. A little syrupy, but not cloying. Familiar belgian yeast flavor dominates along with a fruity sweetness, w/ notes of pepper and some hops. Slight bitterness in the finish. Excellent beer and I’m looking forward to this brewery once they get up and running.

Looks like a local company... interdasting. Pours a clear golden with a lot of carbonation and a pillowy white head. Aroma is sweet and yeasty. Defintely some strong Belgian phenols... sweet, bready and malty as well. Finish has a lingering sweetness. Tasty.
