UPDATED: AUG 27, 2014 Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a dark caramel-orange-brown color with a medium sized foamy orange-beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet and tangy bread, sugar, golden fruits, a bit of dark fruits, fig, toffee and caramel. The flavor was tangy and sweet caramel, nut, rum, golden fruits, dark fruits, a bit of astringency and a hint of perfume. Medium length finish. Moderately full bodied. Pretty tasty.

Damico (2557) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Pours amber hazy with a sandy head. Aroma brings nutty and grapes almost like peanut butter and jelly, nice but subtle. The flavor brings balanced not overly sweet Belgian yeast dominating and smooth with grapes light on the backend. Body is excellent and not too bubbly.
