On tap at the new brewpub. I think I give this one bonus points just of the name. nothing like sitting at the bar and hearing everyone ask for a Happy Ending. Quite balanced and drinkable. Better this year than last.

GTMW. Deep red-brown. Aroma is lightly fruity with some spice and bubblegum. Faint notes of toasted malt. Flavor has a semi-sweet, spicy and fruit-like malt beginning with a dry toasted, and very mildly roasted finish. Slight alcohol towards the finish. Some mild lingering yeast ester notes.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on tap as part of a sampler at Ale Asylum in Madison, WI. Appearance is a murky light brown with a thin white head. Aroma of slight spice, nothing much else. Taste is alright, kind of light, spice comes out a little, not bad.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at AA. Amber-brown-red with a steady off-white/beige head. Clean and doughy, shos a little more balance than most American-Belgians. Quite fresh and full bodied, creamy almost nitro mouthfeel. Somewhere between a Belgian amber and brown. A really enjoyable beer. QUite clean and well attenuated for the style.

On tap @ Ale Asylum. Amber with a creamy head that leaves lots of lacing. Lots of sweetness in this one, caramel and toffee with some spicy yeast notes. Finishes bready with some residual sweetness. Pretty good beer, took a while to get through it though.

Taster tap at the brewery. Let it linger on those taste buds and you’ll get a good spicy kick. It’s a orangish-brown in color, lots of different flavors involved and not too sweet. A good one for sipping.
