3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From my dear brother: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is that of a yeasty Belgian ale. Taste is sweet and piny. Very mellow. Not that bitter. Not that exciting. Not a bad beer, but there is not much to write home about.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at brewery October 01, 2014. Appearance: 2 fingers white head, great lacing, pale straw color, clear, good lacing. Aroma: pine, light floral, light caramel. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish. Taste: light sweetness, into a very heavy pine bitterness finish. I usually do not like heavy pine finishes, but this one is not overwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpub. Interesting ... wouldn’t even put the words "IPA" on this one. More in the vein of a light tripel or saison. Golden, hazy, a good blend of beers, but I’d put this squarely in the saison lane, with a hop kick. Not unlike Victory Golden Monkey, but not quite. (#5642, 8/24/2014)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
December 22nd, 2012 - Wynkoop’s Belgorado glows on this gray Colorado day, an autumnal mix of golds, browns and oranges, with a cloud white head, reaching ambitiously even as it sits in a diminutive sampler glass. A distinctive aroma of hops hits the nose first, and then settles to reveal the hops in greater resolution: skunky, and a little stinky, though not skunked - more of a gourmet cheese sort of smell. Phenols play with the hops in the flavor, giving off a nice bitterness, chased with cotton candy sweetness, and a general feeling of a Belgian Pale Ale; this is a surprisingly rare style to find around Colorado, but nice to find it where it’s served, including here at Wynkoop.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 6/20
A- A bright glowing, golden straw color with an almost egg-white head, good carbonation and long retention and lacing.
S- tangy yeasty citrus character mixed with an almost resinous hop characteristic. Reminds me of hops in the summer but I can’t remember what kind.
T- Delicous, prickly, tangy hop character with citrus notes and fruity, sweet, belgian yeast phenols.
M/F- delicate rounded, fluffy, mouthfeel with a medium body and medium dry finish.

Can. Amber/orange color, white head - carbonation level decent (not too high like some belgian styles). Fruity aroma, slightly sour and VERY slightly hoppy. Malt forward taste with fruit notes, hops very subdued.
