Dark amber color poured a nice thick tan head, not too bitter, nice malty, and a bit sweet taste. Nice beer.

Beer #77 of NM 100. Banana and biscuits, in a surprisingly decent combination. Nicely dry.

jandd1983 (2761) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 5, 2014
It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of yeast, toffee and brown sugar. The taste was of wheat and malts with a little bread and a light dry spiciness. Ok.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine. Hazy copper golden with lasting head and a little lace. Bready spicy aroma. Medium fruity sweet peach caramel with mild spicy hop finish and not too much cloy. Medium body. Pretty much what I expect from an unspectacular version of the style. Not bad.

monk191 (1093) - California, USA - NOV 12, 2014
A fine belgian, a bit boring though. Pours a clear orange. Smells and tastes belgian, but not much else. Smooth but Unmemorable. Tasted at the BevMo Holiday Beer Fest.

jrodooo5 (1081) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 6, 2014
Decent brownish pour w/ a thin white head & lacing. The aroma is malty & somewhat sweet. The taste is similar. There’s not exactly a flavor explosion but is clean & smooth. It’s drinkable but not all that special!

GG (2326) - NorCal, California, USA - OCT 25, 2014
12oz bottle - Aroma - light peppery spices, orange peels, toasted bread and light caramel Appearance - hazy reddish amber, weird uneven off-white head, kinda lumpy looking really, average retention and no lacing. Mouthfeel - light bodied, medium carbonation, kinda prickly Flavor - cloves, peppery, doughy, light sweetness with a spicy finish. Overall - nice spice level in the aroma and flavors, easy to drink and balanced nicely.

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Darker amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is caramel, darker bread, toast, Belgian Yeast. Lighter bodied, somewhat like a Dunkel with Belgian Yeast. Ehhh..

ffaoe (251) - York, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Very malty aroma. Light amber and hazy in color with little head. Taste is slightly malty but also a little watery.

BlackHaddock (4150) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUL 14, 2014
12 oz Bottle poured into a UK pint sleeve on 14th July 2014 while on holiday in California at my daughter and son in laws place. Murky dull amber body with a light tanned head that fell away fairly swiftly. Malts rule the nose and taste, tangy and almost sharp tasting brew, a hidden bitterness within the flavour. Different and interesting, but I did not take to it greatly, it was not balanced. I think it was too cold at the start because it became less malty and more hoppy as it warmed, like two different beers really. My first beer from New Mexico, up to 31 States now.

deyholla (7014) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy earthy gold wit ha white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of earthy grains and grass with some light Belgian yeast backing. Flavor has lots of bread with some sweet grains and a light belgian yeast.
