3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Standard Belgian style done well. Cloudy dull orange with a big fizzy head upon pouring. Fruity nose with some spice and corriander. Palate is more powerful than the nose suggests with a kick of sweet malts and faint licorice driving a warming finish.

Very solid belgian. Nice sweetness, although I didn’t care much for the aroma - there was the slightest hint of skunkiness or something similar. Enjoyable.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is an incredible beer. It has a sweet and dry flavor with a bit of a farmhouse ale quality. At just over $6 a bottle, I will enjoy this one again and again.

yo, this beer is on the next level, word is bond. It made me feel like i was a european minister, word life. the flavors are mad complex. they enhance the sunshine. they have ill patterns. it taste’s good, that’s hard to say for a high alcohol content beer. the taste swirls. definitely spicy, yet light. usually blond beers are boring, but this is the opposite, complex, it tells a sophisticated story. reminds me of the sun shining on green grass. one of the finer things in life. i make beats, i will make a beat in honor of this beer. www.myspace.com/omidhiphop

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. High creamy lasting off-white head. Hazy orange body. Fruity aroma, oranges, peaches and lemon I think, with spices I cannot figure out. Spicy yet fruity flavor and aftertaste of mild hops. Fair amount of carbonation contributes to the impression of a fresh and lovely beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Super spicy. I believe the spice is amplified by the vigorous carbonation. Yeasty, with just the tiniest hint of funk. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This golden ale poured with a massive off-white head that stayed around. The flavor is quite well-balanced with citrus, spice, yeast and hop characteristics that are all a bit subtle yet pleasantly evident. There is a carbonated mouthfeel that makes this brew very refreshing on a warm day and very satisfying on any day.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy cider brown with a decent but not huge off-white head ad some floating bits of very small particulate matter. The aroma is just lovely: baked apples, cinnamon, a hint of orange, some barnyard wildness and the bready yeasts. Nice. Very genty
ly spiced and gently sweet at the start of the flavor profile, some citrus peel intertwining with yeasts for an interesting midrange, light hints of orange liquor, and a finish that is dry without being in the least bit aggressively so. Fizzy, refreshing mouthfeel, light and sparkly.
This is a beautifully crafted beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
750 ml. Bottle. Pours a cloudy light orange golden with a thick cloud-like head and sticky lacing. Spicy orange, bread dough and hops in the nose. Same in the flavor with lots of carbonation to bring the flavors out. Very well made beer.
