3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Sharp Edge Brassiere tasting on 4/23/12. A solid Belgian ale, but nothing special. A good everyday drinker for Belgian ale fans. Bready scent kind of like the crust of a pie, clear bronze pour, a nutty fronted taste over the lightly crisp palate, and a bready presence in the middle taste, finishing on a bitter note.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a medium amber color with a white head. Aroma was spices, yeast, some prunes, and candy sugar. Flavor was much the same, the sweetness was kept to a low, but somewhat bland and uninviting.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured an orange-caramel color with a medium sized fluffy orange-tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was dryish, dusty, musty and had some faint dry spices though a bit dirty and off. The flavor was dry, musty, dusty and a bit dirty with faint dry spices, pepper and was almost boozy despite the low alcohol content. The finish was medium length dry dust and dirt. Medium body. Disappointing.

Bottle from Canal’s. Pours out a moderate copper color with a well carbonated, small white head. Aroma is of fruity Belgian yeast, spices, and some apple. Taste is apple, doughy bread, spice and some Belgian yeast. Not overly complex, but very easy drinking.

Poured at the Big Texas Beer Festival. Light pour with a small white head. Aroma is fruit, grapes, and a little metal. Taste is not much, vinous, and awkward.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a clear copper color with a short-lived off-white head. The aroma is Belgium yeast with notes of honey. The taste, like the aroma, is Belgian yeast and honey. The mouthfeel is medium with some effervescence present. While enjoyable probably won't buy again.

Amber, medium head. Nose smells of Belgian yeast, but fairly faint. Medium through the middle, slightly malty....never seems to finish the deal. Will not buy again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Received a single 12-oz bottle from BDR. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of Belgian yeast, golden grain malt, a hint of clove and some light leather. Taste is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some light banana notes, a hint of clove and Belgian yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a light Belgian ale profile. Quite nice.
