Pours murky reddish brown with a thin, fully receding wispy off-white head. Notes of plum, bubble gum, toffee, spice, pepper, ripe fruits, estery yeast. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation. Nice flavor, could use better clarity and carbonation.

Dark brown pour with large fluffy tan head. Aroma of plums and raisins. Taste is slightly sweet with a bit of caramel and raisin coming through. High carbonation with a dry finish. Not that great in the long run.

BiddleBrau (972) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 21, 2011
Hazy brown with minimal tan head. Alcohol in the nose with some hints of sweet fruits. Malty flavor, toasty, plums and raisins, alcohol, again, present. A bit cloying in the finish. Definite Belgian characteristics but I wouldn’t classify as one of my favorites but still flavorful.

IPAsavedMYlife (345) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 30, 2011
Loose brown head dissipated quickly. color is a medium brown. Smell is banana, plum, grape, champagne, good amount of rotten grapefruit smell in there. Mouthfeel is light, plenty of character depth though. Lots of carbonation flavor, alcohol comes through quite a bit as well. Earthy palate, honey, caramel malt flavor, not much hops to speak of. This is kind of how an American would make a Belgian beer, but with more hops. Aftertaste is the most inviting. No masterpiece, but I very enjoyable. This beer gets a 10 for intangibles. Nice "wild/lively" characteristic. Enjoyability 4/5.
