3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught sample at the brewpub, September 23rd. Very pale, clear gold, does offer a bit of head when shaken...nose is lightly yeasty-sourdough, with touches of lemon-lime fruitiness, and a bit of funk when it warms a bit...body has a lovely balance between light yeastiness, dry tartness and a touch of pale malt sweetness, becoming more dry and tart towards the finish...full-bodied, low to moderate carbonation. This wasn’t anything out of the ordinary for someone who has had a fair number of lighter Belgian ales - just very well done and eminently drinkable. Wish I’d gotten a full glass or pint actually; maybe next time.

On tap at the brewpub. Light and drinkable bit of apple in there. A bit too dry for me, but still not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Vintage. Hazy unfiltered orange-tan. Nice steady white head. Bitter, herbal, spiced aroma. Crisp mouthfeel, lots of Belgian yeast character with a restrained toasty malt backbone. Dry, spicy hops. Quite complex, maybe a little overspiced, yet very sessionable. Well done. Ginger, cardamom.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draught at the Vintage brewery/brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a hazy golden amber colored brew with a slow dissolving off-qhite head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of fruity golden grain malt, Belgian yeast, sour dough bread and a hint of clove. Taste is medium bodied, fruity malt with hints of apricot, cloves, Belgian yeast and a touch of banana. Finish is semi-dry with a short lived bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Vintage. Poured near-clear paler golden with a nice cap of whitish head. The aroma picked up sweet raisins and darker fruity sugars with accents of Belgian yeast and banana.. really nice. The flavor found mostly fruity sweetness with dry, spicy bitterness around.. spices and alcohol warmth rose as the drink progressed, making it heavy-handed for a “table beer”.. the finish was quite long. Heavy creamy, rolling carbonation on the palate with a long-lasting spicy finish.. a tad on the sweet side.. decent brew.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub - Pours orangish-amber with a small white head. Spicy on the nose, with bread dough, tons of fruity yeast, and apricot. Real light and fruity. Taste is pretty dry, with a little tropical fruit sweetness. Mineral dry finish with a bitter, lingering aftertaste. Drank this one side-by-side with the Deville, and the dryness of the Tabula Rasa really won over the sticky sweetness of the Deville. Yum.
