Extra points for the name alone! A fair lookig little lassy with a reddish glow. A fruity basket with enough vinous notes for interest. Finishes dry enough to sweep out the fruit leaving a note of brandy. Fine. On my second try was not as good though.

Smell of cloves, medium bodied, average carbonation. Can taste cloves, alcohol, and a hint of bread. Fantastic!

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.

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.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 5, 2009
On tap at Ale Asylum brewpub. Dark amber with a long lasting creamy tan head that leaves some patches of lacing. Aroma of dark fruit, spicy Belgian yeast, sugar and mild banana. Flavors of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, spice and malt. Body is smooth yet a touch grainy and it finishes up moderately dry with some spicy fruit mixed in.

Not sure why i never rated this, but i had it today on tap at the Ale Asylum here in Madison: Poured a bright beautiful golden colour with a huge frothy white head. Immediate spices on the nose with yeasy esters overflowing. Taste is smooooooooth, but you can taste a little hotness in the finish. Soft spice again, but flowery notes overdubbing this brew.

Tap at brewery. Ruby with off-white head. Aroma laden with dark fruit and spicy belgian yeast. Flavors similar with sweet malty presence and some EtOH in the finish. Very smooth mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

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.
