2.04/5  rDev -48.1%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This is the same as the blonde. It smells like alcohol, it tastes like alcohol and not much else. No liquid bread feeling, no fruits or spices. Pours into a chalice. Some head that dissipates. Low carbonation. Looks between golden yellow and orange whiskey, see through. It has a tiny aroma of pears. It taste like hard liquor, bitter, cough syrup not in a good way. At room temp it smells and tastes more like hard liquor. This is not a beer

2.68/5  rDev -31.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.5

A- Super carbonated, bubbly white foam pours atop a bright golden brew. Many bubbles running through the beer. Theres some lacing left on the glass. I've never seen this before, but you actually see bubbles rising in the head of this beer. This gives champagne a run for its money.

S- A little funkiness is never a bad thing. That makes way to a strong belgian yeast. Some dried fruits, banana and clove. Somewhat of a faded hoppiness aroma as well. Maybe some lemon also.

T- Apple, pear, and a stale acidic malt that burns a little in the throat. A little bit of sweetness on the backend, and a clove aftertaste. The stale acidic flavor though kills this.

M- Light to medium bodided brew with high carbonation.

O- This is a great looking, mediocre smelling, poor tasting and great feeling beer. Too bad the most important features are let downs. I always disliked Belgian pale ales, accept the last two I had were good and AMAZING, this one re-affirms my dislike for them. Not good.

2.68/5  rDev -31.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Light golden. Big fluffy white head when poured into my Allagash glass.

S: Some lager-like aroms while pouring. Spicy noble hops.

T: Light fruity notes on bready malts.

M: High carbonation, light body, crisp finish. A bit of alcohol burn on the finish.

O: I would describe this (not entirely negatively) as a Belgian for light lager drinkers. Even though it's 9%, it's crisp, clean, light bodied... and a bit boring.

2.88/5  rDev -26.7%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Pours gold with a large, lasting white head.
Nose shows doughy wheat, soft peppery phenols and cloves. Reminiscent of a hefe, but with some soft light fruit added.
In the way of flavours, it's booze, doughy yeast and soft wheat. Not great, there's nothing to distract from the alcohol.
Carbonation is way over the top.

21/11/13 on bottle
(Served in a tulip glass)

A- This beer has just a hint of haze to the straw yellow body with a swirling carbonation of bubbles and a lumpy snow white head that sticks to the glass in sheets.

S- The clean aroma gives off some fruity esters as the beer warms but they stay pretty light aswell.

T- The slightly dry sulfury hint of oyster shells gives way to a soft green bite in the finish. There is a faint papery lemon flavor with some dried banana hints as the beer opens.

M- The medium mouthfeel has no alcohol heat and a gentle fizz.

O- This beer is very clean and it is tough to find much flavor at all and the aroma is really buried.

This poured out as a light hazy yellow color with a fizzy white head on top. The smell of the beer was yeasty with some grains and a little but of funk on the nose. The taste of the beer is grainy with some earthy hops in the finish. The mouthfeel of the beer was bubbly, it has a lot of champagne-like qualities to it. Overall this beer isn't overly special in my opinion. Was nice to try but won't seek it out in the future.

3.3/5  rDev -16%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Cloudy dirty straw color with a matted look in the glass. Pillowed bright white head with a fluffy appearance and medium retention.

Banana oil, white pepper, lemon and orange zest. A light dank quality from the hops.

A little skunky and an artificial feel on the palate. Artificial citrus zest, and a chemical alcoholic heat. A little bit of mint in the finish.

Rich, full bodied style with a slightly oily mouthfeel. The alcohol accentuates an astringent bitterness in the feel. The palate feels a little tacky after the beer has subsided. There's a spritzy carbonation here.

A little less carbonation would probably help out quite a bit. Fairly non-nondescript and alcoholic (taking into account the style).

3.31/5  rDev -15.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A : pours a slightly hazy deep straw yellow with a big pillowy white head that dissipates quickly.
S : smells of cloves and Belgian yeast. A sharp alcohol burn to the nostrils. A bit of old skunk as well.
T : watery, then bready with hints of black pepper and clove. Banana essence and estery flavor. A mild hop bitterness of earthiness and grass. A bit of skunky euro pils taste.

M: thin up front, medium elsewhere. Just a hint of alcohol and a bit overly effervescent

An ok brew, but nothing i would seek out again.
