3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This interesting beer pours a deep reddish brown with a firm head of off white bubbles. The nose is an interesting blend of typical Belgian style hops and spices like cinnamon and a hint of clove. The body is lively. The taste is slightly sweet with floral hops first over a body of medium malt finishing with the spices and a decent alcohol kick. A very different beer.

Aromas of vanilla, fig, grape, and oak dominate. Orange, spice, and the slightest touch of booze as accents.
There’s all kinds of things going on in the taste: grape, caramel, raisin, earthy hop, spice, rum, vanilla, yeast, citrus, and cinnamon. It was one of those I was too busy saying "damn that’s good" to concentrate too deeply on the order of things going on. I’m already planning on going back and buying more.

12 oz can. Pours a translucent garnet brown, with frothy tan head. Aroma Belgian dark fruit, solid malt backbone. Taste follows with a hint of spiciness and a boozy burn. Really solid, like pretty much everything 21st Amendment does.

12 oz can pours very dark brown. Sweet malty and a little fruity aromas. Taste is superb! Malt, raisins, oak, brown bread, and some hints of spice makes this my favorite American-Belgian beer. WOW! and it came from a can.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A- pours an opaque rusty, reddish brown with an off white head that dissipates quickly. No retention or lacing. S- hints of sour lager hit the nose first, followed by dark fruits such as dates and prunes and then mild berries. Some sourdough, and caramel maltiness. Light astringent. M- medium oily body with a medium chewy palate with a decent burn. Good carbonation. T- berries and dark fruits come first. Middle shows malts, continued dark fruits, some hops, lager yeast, wet wood and light dirt. Ending is efficient and has some cherry throat lozenge, soda water, soft grass and minerals.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark ruddy brown, tan head. Spicy aroma of cinnamon and fruit. Rich flavor; blend of fruits and spices. Chewy mouthfeel overall. Ending is boozy but a bit thin. Tastes good but a little underwhelming?

Smells sweet and malty with hints if dark berries. Pours dark brow with a ring of tan head.
Tastes of caramel and artisan cola with hints of spices and grape or cherry juice.
Medium body, medium carbonation level and a smooth finish.
21st amendment isn't afraid to add spices to their beers, and they do skillfully. I find their beers drinkable and delicious and a little different than anyone else's. Worth a try, kind of tastes more like pop instead if beer, which makes it really easy to drink.
