Tmoney99 (10411) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2011
Tap sample. Poured hazy brown color with an average off-white frothy head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Medium roasted malt and yeast aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium spicy sweet flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate duration. Solid brew.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
On tap at the Ale Asylum Brew Pub. Poured a deeper amberish / brownish color with a small sized off white head. Had a light haze to it. Aromas of bananas, spices, raisins, plums and some yeast. Tastes of fruits, raisins, caramel, and spices.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
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.

Ughsmash (7087) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 26, 2006
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.

Nice spicy Belgian ale. Amber with a lot pH phenolic yeast presence. Not bad.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Had on tap at the brewpub. It was a bit spicy and slightly overbearing for the style, but really not too bad.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Sampled on tap at the brewpub (Madison, WI). Pours a nice deeper copper hue, some fiery orange, with a frothy offwhite head, dies to a thicker ring, laces ok. Aromas are a touch of yeasty enticing spice, some dark fruit pit cherry, toffee and caramel, faint yeasty spice. Initial is a touch of yeastiness, mellow sweetness pervades with caramel, toffee, breads, a touch of red fruit, yeasty spice, with some light florals, faint bitterness towards the finish. But largely, a sweet brew with a big malty bite. Some light yeasty sweetness and spice

Skyview (5150) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 20, 2007
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.
