Growler thanks to Fratto. Pours with an off-white head over a clear amber body. Aroma of leather, grain, caramel, belgian yeast, hops, and a bit of caraway. Taste is dry, alcoholic, belgian yeast, bread and low residual sweetness. Medium carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear reddish orange pour. Decent head that sits. Light fruit smell. Has tiny bits of hops but is incredibly scarce. Taste has a bland malty feel that has elements of dark bitterness to it. Taste loses it’s sweetness quickly. Some sweet notes however.

Pint at the Draught House- poured semi transparent, very sweet aroma laced with some malt. Hit the mouth with a medium body, sweetness dominated the malt. Whew- I can still taste the sweetness.

They just released it at the anniversary party. It didn’t taste very "strong." It might have been a little too fresh because it also tasted too sweet. Other than that, a very solid offering.

Rather nice, but prehaps a tad on the sweet side (for my taste, not for the beer/style). I am so happy these guys seem to really be getting it together - headed there for anniversary party. Best of luck to a great local brewer.
