3.65/5 rDev -11.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Had on-tap, served in a goblet.
A - A deep honey gold that is just ever so slightly hazy. Minimal head and little in the way of lacing.
S - Perhaps this beers strongest point - very strong aromas coming off of this. Lots of bready Belgian yeast, sweet honey, plus citrus hops and floral. Some banana as well. Quite nice.
T - Doesn't quite live up to the smell I am afraid. Overall, I would describe the taste as light (even edging towards bland), with the expected bready aspects finishing with a slight amount of apple bitter and citrusy hops. Some pineapple is there, just a touch of funk lingering in the background. Alcohol is prevalent in the taste as well, something I found a bit disappointing.
M - High carbonation, with a somewhat slick mouthfeel. Light to match the flavor.
D- Suffers from the noticeable alcohol in the taste, yet is balanced with the light on the palate flavors.
Not my favorite offering from RR and arguably quite overated IMHO, especially given it's premium price-point.
Serving type: on-tap

4.25/5 rDev +3.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A - 4.25 - golden amber color that's hazy with a white head on top that leaves nice lacing
S - 4.25 - banana, orange, pepper, mango, spices, breadiness in the background from the malts.
T - 4.25 - same as the nose, plus a hop bitterness that's nice. Banana, orange juice, papaya, wheat, toast, bread, pepper, spice. Almost a tart kind of a taste? There's something on the roof of the mouth that I can't quite pick out.
M - 4.25 - light medium mouth feel, alc covered, aftertaste is bread banana orange goodness.
O - 4.25 - not the best Belgian I've had but Damn good. Totally a keeper in my book + worth trying!
