On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a hazy dark copper amber with a nicely-lacing off-white head. Aroma of fresh, lightly biscuity Belgian malt with a touch of yeast and light citrus. Body starts fairly full with some nice lightly sweet caramel malt and an orange citrus balance toward a bready, semi-dry finish. A nice Belgian ale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the Ale Asylum. Poured a hazy, darker, murky brown with a light ring of off-white head. Almost sickeningly-sweet aroma with pears, some darker fruits, and peppery spices. Flavor also found bunches of sweet fruits and peppery spices that rose in prominence as this warmed up.. rather complex, but again too sweet for me. Flowed somewhat well on the palate but was hard to drink a lot of.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear, coppery amber brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind an off-white ring a no lacing. Aroma of dark caramel malt, flowery hops with some mild spices, white pepper and a touch of clove. Taste is medium bodied, hardly any carbonation with a caramel flavor in the aftertaste and then a mild bitterness. A pretty decent milt bitter Belgian ale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the brewpub. The body was light copper colored with a creamy off white head on top. The aroma was lots of banana with some cinnamon. As it warmed I thought it smelled more of bubblegum. The taste was bananas and cinnamon spice. There was a little grassy funk in the finish. This was very drinkable.
