On draught at The Bier Stein, appearence is a hazly burnt gold with a small white collar leaving foamy lace.

Smell is bright and zesty, pithy lemon.

Taste is estery, lots of bananas and bubble gum, but with some spicy, clove like notes as well. Phenolic. Big flavors, but there's an elegance to it, well made.

Mouthfeel is light and dry, fully carbonated.

Drinkability is good, a solid blonde. These guys do a really nice job of crafting authentic Belgians with big flavors from the yeast, and high digestibility.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.

A- Poured a dark amber color with small soapy white head that dissipated instantly and left no lace.

S- Banana, bubblegum, and phenolic Belgian yeast notes.

T- Big banana, bubblegum, phenolic and chalky Belgain yeast notes, and some juicy citrus notes.

M- Soft carbonation, medium body, smooth, and semi-dry.

O- Mazama seems to be making really great and authentic belgian ales. Very flavorful with lots of yeast expression.

Poured a hazy orange with almost no head from a 22oz bomber. Smells great but taste, to me, fails to deliver. Something just seems to be a little short of expectations, especially when it comes to those great, funky esters that should deliver the strong banana and fruit flavors in a Belgian style. It's there in this beer, just, well...underwhelming. Well made and very drinkable, I want to like this a lot more, and it is a fine brew, but there is definitely room for improvement.
