Received in trade.
This was poured into a tulip.
The appearance was a deep golden color with a two finger's worth of white foamy head that glistened and slid off at a mild pace. Some stringy lace, but sliding into the beer.
The aroma had some Belgian yeasty sweetness rolling over some honey, grassy to earthy semi-spicy hops, light barnyard, and a little bit of funky sort of oil-like sweat (interesting, but it wasn't bothersome to me, just different).
The flavor was moderately Belgian sweet pulling in the honey and spicy tones to amplify a pretty good balance. Funky sort of Belgian sweet biscuit-like aftertaste.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine, somewhat low but not bothersome. ABV felt on par as projected by the brewer.
Overall, I liked this one and see it as a good job by a Wisconsin brewer that I wouldn't mind having again.

From notes on 5/29. Light colored body. Really dry spicy beer. I’m not too big on this style and this one doesn’t help push me more into it.

L: Pours hazy straw under a 3” white to cream colored rocky foam cap that lasts forever and hugs the side of the glass on the way down.
S: Nose starts with some big spice, then there is some citrus and a suggestion of grape, a little banana with some floral notes.
T: The palate starts fruity with citrus, grapes, bananas, pears and oranges and pepper in the finish. Has a dry finish with a moderate hop bitter accent.
F: The body starts out a little anorexic but it plumps up a little over time as the effervescence grows. Creamy with very soft carbonation. Slight alcohol warmth, not hot or solventy, not astringent.
O: A big fruit cocktail of a beer that starts a little thin but ends up as a refreshing drink.

On-tap at Three Cellars, Franklin, WI:

Pours golden with a thin lasting head that leaves lacing.

The smell is of cotton candy/bubblegum and spiced bread.

The taste drops off from the nose. Some candy is there, with a touch of honey-like sweetness. A bit chalky and yeasty/bready in the finish.

Easy enough to drink.

Lucette is making some good stuff, so I'm developing a habit of picking up a bottle/can of whatever new I see from them. Nabbed this one on sale for $6, seemed like a good gamble. Big, round-jawed 750ML split with my wife.

Pour is pale, sunny yellow with hearty carbonation. Nose is heavy on the sweet, sweet candied sugar, along with a ton of Belgian yeast, & a bit of clove & spices. Very lively aroma.

Double Dawn is missing...something, a vital quality that I can't quite put a finger on. Taste is a bit flat (not carbonation-wise) with a strong, wheat-like component that wasn't visible to the nose. White grapes that might be a bit past their prime, which muddle the fruity qualities of the yeast. Fleeting citrus. Back-end is a mash-up of the aforementioned flavors, with the faintest tinge of sourness, which grows unpleasantly as it warms.

This is the brewery's first miss for me. There is a distinct disconnect between the nose & the taste, which tells me that something isn't right with this bottle. A lovely, sweet-smelling beer that really disappoints.
