look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Color: copper with a light mist, the head of a white, tall and thick, durable.
Aroma: malty, sweet, fruit, some earthy accents.
Taste: The first sip and immediately, a pleasant little impact alcohol, then malty, slightly fruity, dust. Chicory unfortunately lack.
Gentian dry, sallow. Saturation high, perhaps a little too high. Alcohol is a problem.

Rich head with a thick, sticky body and medium carbonation. Weak smell but full blown flavor. A bit tart and yeasty, this beer exudes a honey-like sweetness with some banana and apricot at the start before giving way to a nice, earthy middle. The chicory isn't as present as it might be in a stout, but it does add a pleasant, interesting woody quality. Very tasty for fans of sours, but might be a little intense for those expecting a white or blonde ale. Still, I love it.

33cl bottle. Golden pale colour, with an impressively tall white head with very good retention. Smells like Belgian yeast, bananas, spices and lambic sourness without the funk. Tastes sweet and a bit bitter, with notes of bananas, freshly baked bread and a hint of sauvignon blanc. Smooth and velvety mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Blacksburg

A- pours a clear deep golden-copper color with a small creamy white head that leaves some thick lain behind as it settles

S- fruity and spicy esters, Belgian yeast, earthy

T- spicy Belgian yeast up front gives some peppery notes, along with some fruity flavors of banana & pear, also picking up some clove. Earthy notes at the mid-palate provide some faint woodsy notes, perhaps from the hickory addition, yeasty finish

M- medium body and medium lively carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that fills the mouth all the way through to the finish

O- a solid Belgian pale that is quite drinkable with well hidden ABV

Deep orange to light brown color with a thick rocky head of off-white foam. The head settles into a half finger cap that leaves heavy lacing on the glass. Serious barnyard aromas coming through along with some ripe fruit, pepper, and cooked vegetables. Taste has a spicy character along with the funky element. More of the vegetable flavor comes through as well. Nicely carbonated with a pretty rich mouthfeel.
