3.1/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

received this as an extra from fishdawg71. Thanks!

pours a pale glowing golden color. not much head off a direct center aggressive pour. some lacing but nothing special.

smell is sweet. definitely get some candy sugar off this. belgian yeast. some citrus hints. kinda like a candied orange.

taste is mediocre at best. sweet malty mess. off aftertaste. its overly sweet without a proper bitterness to bring it back on track. not a fan.

overall this beer has been getting less and less enjoyable as it has warmed up. i just dont think it is for me...sadly.

Thanks to breity for this one. Pours a half finger off-white head over a hazed light-golden liquid showing a few streamers. Smells solventy, floral, dark earthy, sunflowers. Soft phenolic that isn't quite clovey. Odd lemony, like a mealy old lemon.

Tastes drying phenolic. Oranges and underlying malt sweet to balance. Dreis in finish dur to alcohol cleansing and md-strong carbonation. Belgian candi-sugar is present. Md-thick body isn't right for the style. Also missing the lemony light finish. has a strong wet cardboard flavor that comes across like sewage smells. Not good.

12oz. Bottle

Pours a nice hazy golden yellow color, nice carbonation, little fizzy white head, which does leave some nice sticky lacing around the edges. The nose is malty, yeasty, with some peach notes. The taste is malty/yeasty, nice touch of peaches, with some spiceyness. Medium body, the alcohol is hidden very well. Very drinkable, another tasty higher ABV brew from Squatters. At $4.99 it's a great bargin, highly recommended.

4.55/5  rDev +40%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours a clear golden yellow with 1 finger of bright white head. Gorgeous tight lacing.

Yeast and fruity esters. Bready malts. A hint of citrus

Peppery spices. Lemon zest, banana and mango. More bready yeast. Some mild hop bitterness. Almost a tart finish. Not a boat load of sweetness, but some great complexity, and balance.

Medium in body, more body than I expected from initial pour, with moderate and delicate carbonation. Yummy all the way. Further proof they can brew great high ABV's in Utah even though they don't get the chance all that often.
