3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A well rounded ale, similar to a trippel, but much less sweet. Grainy, biscutty backbone with the estery notes subdued, mostly being apples and pears. Great noble-spicy hop presence, and due to the carbonation quite dry and refreshing in the finish, with low to no warmth

Bottle back from Nashville a while back. Pours clear yellow orange with a big white sculptural fizzy head. Candy orange aroma with a bit of belgian yeast funk. Decent malt body with some sourness in there. Hops are nice, grassy and the finish is a bit sweet.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ML Bottle. Decent sweet citrus on the nose along with some spice. Golden body with good white head and livly carbinated bubble action in the glass. Flaor has some citrus but the malt is somewhat more dominate along with the spices. A filling brew time for a nap.
