4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
I was interested when a friend of mine told me about this brewery. All I have to say is......WOW!
This beer pours golden and slightly cloudy with huge aromatics of banana, briar and stone fruit. Very slight bubble gum. The taste is yeast product dominant with orange citrus tones and a dry finish.
The warming alcohol is very well balanced with the bittering, but there isn’t any hops evident in the flavor profile. It’s mostly dominated by the aromas of the yeast and very complex as it ripens with temperature.
I am a huge Belgian fan and this beer definetly meets, if not exceeds, the quality beers coming from Belgium...I think it’s better than Delirium Tremens and Duvel. True, I couldn’t drink it all night, but it’s a darn nice way to start the evening.
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed opaque gold with a medium sized white head. Soft musk, a bit of orange and citrus on the nose, spicy yeast. Medium bodied, tart and tangy, orange comes through with a hint of vanilla. Light a sour wheat creamsicle, but nothing over the top. Fun, vibrant, very pretty.

Bottle from parents, this was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a bronzed yellow sort of color to it. Finger’s worth of white foamy head that fell off at a moderate pace. Slight stringy lace.
The aroma had some banana, peach, vanilla, sweet wood, grassiness, subtle funk/sour, bleu cheese/basement/old sweatsock, leather, light earthiness/dried leaves and ended with a semi-sour to sweet grassy character.
The flavor had the fruitiness meld with the vanilla to lead into the sweet wood. Light herbal quality and bubblegum come in to lighten the funkiness. Aftertaste softened towards the previously mentioned tastes. Finished somewhat funky yet sour with an ample sweetness.
The palate was about medium bodied with a clean sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt good.
Overall, what style was this supposed to be? Hell if I know, hell if I care, just damn good. mansquito (6493) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2016

Very cloudy lemon, no head. due to the yeast, I just get a lot of baby diaper in the aroma. The taste, more sulphur, baby diaper, sweet orange peel and a underlying herbal spice that really lingers on for a while. this was interesting but needs just a bit more body jtclockwork (16690) - , New Jersey, USA - JUL 20, 2016
