4/5 rDev +6.4%
Never really would have bought this since it's just the base of their other fruit beers which were pretty lackluster. I found it for only 5 bucks discounted for an old bomber batch 35 8.4% ABV.
A - Well the first pour is always the best in this situation. No sediment and with a light pour I even got a 1/4 inch of head that fades to a light lace ring. Still flaky sediment floaties in my bright yellow orange beer.
S - Very fruity with mild hops. Apricot comes to mind. No ethanol or spice so it's indeed a Belgium golden ale.
T - It's quite good. Mildly hoppy very fruity with just a hint of dryness. Just a very sugary sweet Belgium golden ale.
M - ABV is well masked I really can't tell its over 8%. Drinks medium bodied but its over a sipper.
Overall very impressed with this beer I could see why it was aged on fruit but really to make their fruit beers more epic (get the name?) they really should have used more fruit to amp it up. I found the raspberry one was like a sugary punch rather than a beer.

3.36/5 rDev -10.6%
Was worried this would be flat as the pour produced absolutely no foam whatsoever. The hue itself is quite nice- a light, translucent amber. Aroma was hard to catch without a head on the beer, but did pick up some apricot, which was also the main notes to the taste. Effervescent, very boozy. Pretty satisfied with this.
