NOTF 2010. Hazy amber pour. The nose is really very oaky. Loads of vanilla and a touch of cotton candy as well. Belgian pale malt and a fairly simple sort of Belgian ale yeast. Lightly spicy with a soft kiss of oak. Not really bourbony at all but there is a kiss of spice. A light touch of tartness on the back of the palate as well. Kind of an odd brew.

Pouring at Night of the Funk on the Friday night of Belgian Beer Fest in Boston. Pours an orange brown with just a touch of haze under a thin white head. Loads of vanilla. Weird and empty. Malt and not a lot else going on. Very sweet, a touch of odd yeasty funkiness. Meh.

Reviewed from notes. On tap at Night of the Funk. Beer pours a somewhat murky orangish-copper color with a thin white head and a bit of lacing. The nose brings forward a bit of bread crust along with some citrus fruits and a bit of green apple. Taste is nice with a blend of citrus and some light breadiness. Nothing too complex, but pretty good for what it is. Light spice in the background. Feel consists of some very effervescent carbonation on a light to medium body. Drinkability was pretty decent, but it wasn’t quite what I hoped for. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 03-15-2011

4oz pour at the Lupulin Reunuless at RFD DC. Pours a hazy, orange with a frothy, white head. Nose is awesome, fruity, candy sugar, a little band aid, light cheese, some tartness. Flavor is tart, limes, lemon peel, light tropical fruit,m some coconut, white grapes. Full bodied, tart, lightly acidic finish. Plenty of wood throughout. Nice apple flavors. I loved every bit of this, went back for several additional pints.
