3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy burnt orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that hung on for a little while reducing to a few small puddles and a small ring of residue thus creating some excellent sticky streaks of lace.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, floral hops and a sweet moldy yeast with notes of citrus, pears, coriander, honey and a mild alcohol scent.
The taste was a fruity malty sweet with notes of citrus and honey from start to finish with notes of pears, green apple, a mild spiciness and a light alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with the sweet fruity alcohol taste lingering on well after everything else faded.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a well rounded brew that had a ton of flavor and a mild fruity alcohol presence. Simply put YUM…

Bottle offered @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen bronus box. Thanks ! Pours a cloudy glowing orange appearance with a tan head. Looks nice. Aroma is pretty spicy (pepper and clove). Some banana and citrus also. Some green / herbal notes as well. Flavor is goopy and boozy. Some toasted cracker notes. Plenty of fruit and bubblegum notes. Not all that good.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden color with a white head. Some citrus, apricot, and spices in the nose. The flavor is extremely sweet with some sugary notes, caramel, candy yams. Aftertaste is a bit syrupy. Overall not a huge fan of this it’s a bit cloying.

Golden yellow pour with a white head. Belgian spice / phenolic nose. A bit of mineral in the finish of an otherwise nice belgian strong. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Nice big head, translucent, good lacing, and a honey color. Very good complex taste, not dark at all, spices and fruits. Muted aftertaste, but good all the same, true to the style, and remarkably accurate. It’s got pear and spices, as well. Easy drinkin, medium body. Very very good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours between orange and gold with a large fluffy white head that does not remain very long. Smells sweet, bread dough with a bit of fruityness, I want to say bananas but I know that is not right. Taste fairly sweet to start with a bit of spice and continues to a small amount of bitterness. Overall not something I would seek out to drink

Golden brown topped by a big white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of bread dough, fruity yeast esters and some floral notes. Light malty sweetness, fruity yeast, a hint of bubblegum. A bit of peppery spice and hop bitterness in the finish.
