3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from State Line. Turbid golden pour with 1-finger off-white head. Aroma of funky bready malt, barnyardy hay, tart fruit, hops, and some unwashed female asscrack hints. The flavor was tart, fruity, funky yeasty, with bready malt and finishing hopcitrus. It got pretty tart at the end, approaching a sort of saison/lambic/tripel hybrid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed peach juice color, thin white head. Surprising nose on this one with well blended notes of sugary soured citrus, wood, spices and soft bready tones. Deep citrus flavor up front that slowly fades into a light sourdough breadiness. Touches of wood and spice bring up the rear and round this out nicely. Full bodied, soft carbonation, lightly tart and sour finish. A stange cat (frog) this one is. Not bad at all though and worthy of a try. Thanks for sharing Hopscotch....

Same as the Eugene City Tripel. This big ol 10% tripel starts with a nice fruit/caramel sweetness, very estery with a lot of banana and clove throughout, very nice carbonation livens up the spices allowing them to cut through the sweeter body of this brew. A bit of alcohol shows when this brew is cold but is covered up nicely as it warms.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750 bottle with sealing wax, cap and cork. What, no gold leaf? Pours a cloudy peach color with a hugely fluffy white head. Belgian yeast aroma with pineapple and maybe some ginger? The body tends to the light side. Tastes of oxidized apples and peaches. Dry spicy finish. Does a really good job of hiding the alcohol.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
750. Pours amber orangey with an enormous fluffy white cumulus head. Big pear and apple nose, smells dry. Tastes dry, with the apple notes predominating. Not much else going on, other than a wee splash of herbal notes in the attack as it warms.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Newport Microbrew Festival) This is a strong malty flavored Belgian with the right amount of infection (which is good). A great fruity flavor with a well balanced feel. Strong and a good winter beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice nose of burnt bananas, bread crust and sweet banana pudding. Sweet up front turning to salty and dry on the back - good hearty dry texture in the finish, with some light biting hops. Mellow yeast flavor present as well. Very good stuff.
