From the bottle. Aroma of play-do, bubble gum, and slight banana clove. Pours blonde with a medium head. Tastes of light banana, clove and a bready dough. Pretty solid blonde. I was expecting worse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Capped 750, noisy open, but not a gusher. Very sweet nose with yeast, candis-like fruity esters, light mineral. Pours rich orange-golden with a dense beige head. Pils malt base but superheavy in beautiful honey, light spice with a lot of (fortunately rounded) alcohol, very fruity from the obv Belgian yeast. Fat body with light wisps of yeast and alcohol, warms quickly and enthusiastically but doesn’t burn. Fresh and clean, very bright orange citrus spikes through the mass, but there are lighter plummy/grape tones underneath -- nowhere near as much as in a Quad, but a pleasant slight accent. Low bitterness, strong sweetness. Either needs time to settle out or a recipe tweak, I love the shading toward a Tripel but would prefer it to be much drier.

Bourbon Grand Cru on tap at yards. Hazy lighter amber white head. Minimal nose. Spicy and boozy with hint of Bourbon barrel. A bit fuller maltier palate. Alcohol a bit disruptive.
