2.63/5 rDev -25.5%
ST: In bottle, poured into glass.
A: Light golden hue with straight pour; once mix in the yeast from bottom of bottle gives it a nice cloudiness. (Spelling)
S: Light settling aroma, giving off a hint of fruit. Small hint of hops smell.
T: Crisp taste, is refreshing in hot weather. Little fruity taste from the Belgian yeast. Faint hop flavor, considering it is a blonde. It definitely hides the 8.5% alcohol well.
MF: Very light body, Sticks around, and dissipates slowly
O: Decent beer coming out of Iowa. For a smaller brewery going at the Belgian blonde its worth a try. Pending on their cost for it, it is a bit pricey (where I am located at least), going at $13 for a 6pk. But, then again, it is 8.5%.

2.65/5 rDev -24.9%
poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass
A-somewhat hazy maize colored with almost no head that fades quickly
S-fairly light smell of banana is about the best I can come up with nothing really pronounced it is just the faint banana and maybe a little bit of nuts
T-much like the smell nothing jumps out a little fruitiness that is a little reminisent of banana but not much else and then it leads to a slight metallic finish
M-not a real heavy body but slightly better than the light body that it looks like it is going to be
O- this is not a bad beer, just not in line for the style I don't think. For a regular BMC drinker this would be a excellent choice to get them to try something new.

2.83/5 rDev -19.8%
A: dull, hazy, dirty blonde, with no head to speak of. Frankly, doesn't look much like beer in the glass.
S: banana, lemon and orange peel, perfume. Mild, but balanced.
T: wow, tart, almost cider-like. Some citrus notes, too, and a generous dose of clove in the finish. Not too much hop presence though.
M: for as still as it looks, this is nicely conditioned and effervescent. But again, for every positive there's a flaw: here, it's that this is pretty thin-bodied.
O: Peace Tree runs hot and cold for me, and this is definitely the latter. It's not at all offensive, just boring. So many better interpretations of the style. I won't revisit this one.

You poor bastards in Iowa having to drink this...I feel for you. The clove phenols are there, the finish is strangely dry (alcohol dry) yet cloying. The awesomely designed and labeled bottle was undercarbonated for style and head is lacking like it was regular American 2-row as a base.
I guess if you didn't have access to good beer this would be great.

3/5 rDev -15%
A - Pours a murky honey color with bright yellow-orange highlights. No head to speak of, even after a rough pour. No lacing on the glass either.
S - I notice two things: Hints of citrus fruits from the hops and/or belgian yeast and a rich bready aroma.
T - An estery, almost metallic tang up front with honey-sweetness and toasted malt flavors following through to the finish. Mild hop bitterness that only strikes toward the finish on the back of the tongue. Hmmm... the metallic taste becomes more evident with each sip. Maybe my taste buds are off tonight?
M - Under-carbonated. Too bad, because I feel like proper carbonation could have made this a good beer, not just an OK one. Otherwise medium-to-thick bodied with a sweet, sticky finish.
