3.15/5  rDev n/a
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a cloudy amber with minimal head. Nose is malty and sugary with some apparent esters.

Taste is toasty malt and candi sugar. Lots of fruity esters and a touch of banana, as it was fermented rather warm. Not enough to push it into weizen category but the distinct Belgian yeast strain is noticeable.

Mouthfeel is moderately light, a little lively with the carbonation. Originally intended as a dubbel, this came in a little lighter than expected and was renamed but is still a decent first attempt at a nondescript Belgian.

Pours a cloudy, somewhat murky, brown amber color with a short creamy head. Nose is brown sugar with a bit of bubblegum. Taste begins with sweet candied sugar followed by a fruity yeastiness and a touch of alcohol. Pretty nice—I was told it has improved with time as it’s now about 2 months old.
