3.75/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Golden slight amber color. Very light, bubbly head on the pour. Random lacing left behind at each level. Below average active carbonation in the glass while drinking.

Smell: The front is a subtle yet present floral fruit aroma. Good base of belgian yeast which adds some accents of cloves and bananas. The hops not only provide some fruit accents but dry, rustic, and herbal tones as well. Much more hop forward then I expected but very pleasant. As the beer warmed up the hop tones subsided slightly and the belgian yeast was much more present.

Taste: The front is a mix of yeast tones and some herbal hops. Not nearly as hop dominate as the aroma. Cloves, lefty greens, herbal spices, tangerines, and grapefruit are the biggest players. The finish is the lingering flavors from the body slowly fading. Mixture of bitterness and yeast feeling left behind on the palate.

Mouthfeel: The bitterness is medium, yeast texture medium, fruitiness is alright. Everything is pretty average here nothing outstanding.

Overall: Great first offering from a new Chicago brewery. This beer has some nice depth with the hop tones and is very drinkable. Will certainly be trying more offerings from Une Annee

3.86/5  rDev +1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy orange-yellow in color. Forms a ridiculously large fluffy white head that requires me to wait 10 minutes before I can even taste the beer (and let me just say having to wait to drink a beer because the head is so big is a pet-peeve of mine). Moderate lacing.

S: Aroma is a pleasing blend of Belgian yeastiness (spice and phenols), alcohol, green, grassy hops and some light citrus notes.

T: Taste is likewise pleasant. Light malts. Light sweetness. Citrus. Some light spice notes and a touch of yeast. A bit of alcohol on the back end.

M: Lighter bodied. Lively carbonation. Mild bitterness.

O: A better than average Belgian Pale Ale. Leans towards a more American approach with heavier hopping and restrained yeastiness.
