3.59/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Pours yellow gold with a small head that quickly dissipates

S - Fruity and spicy esters, with hints of apples and some bubblegum. It does smell a bit musty and stale.

T- Similar to the smell. Dry and spicy with hints of banana, bubblegum, and apple. I'm still getting that musty stale flavor as well which is disappointing.

M - A thin slightly watery body with sharp prickly carbonation

Overall a pretty good example of a BPA. Crisp and refreshing but the mustiness is throwing me off.

3.46/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from bottle into snifter

Appearance- pours a hazy gold with a short, creamy, bubbly head which recedes quickly and leaves some minor lacing.

Aroma- faint spice and citrus, bready, yeasty

Feel- medium, oily, little carbonation tingle, and finishes crisp but very smooth

Taste- taste follows the nose, to a degree- less malty, more spicy/citrusy with a hint of banana towards the end

Overall- This being my first beer in the Belgian style realm, i liked it a lot. It's not that heavy of a beer and very drinkable. That being said, it isn't too complex, which I believe makes it good for those who want to get into Belgian style ales.

Got to try on tap fresh from the brewery the other day and I thought it was very nice. The appearance was a hazy yellow with a decent head. The smell had a lot of wheat and banana to it. The taste was similar with great notes of banana, and even a little bit of spice. The feel of the beer was a little light but refreshing in the heat. Would definitely get again.
