Bottle purchased at Elevated and consumed at Nagy’s new pad. Mug as drinking vessel. Copper. Off white head. Aroma is more malt and grain than I anticipated. Sugars and caramel as well. Taste has malt and caramel/toffee notes. Maybe honey too. Syrupy mouthfeel. Aftertaste of Belgian candied sugar. Reminds me of mid level Belgian ales. Good, not great.

Draft at Avery. Caramel aroma and taste. Somewhat standard quad which of course means it still tastes great.

From the tap the pour is auburn dark red and clear with a thin white head, aroma is distinctly Belgian - yeasty and deep carmel notes, gentle roasting notes a little banana, finish is heavier but overly thick. It is a solid beer, a great malty sipper.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Lots of bubble gum notes on the nose. The Belgian yeast is playing it’s part. The beer pour a muddy orange/brown with a head that dissapates quickly, has a slight alcohol burn which is a downer - really takes away from the flavors of this beer.

4.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
First a caveat - I like a good Belgian now and again but it's far from my favorite style.
Nose of light fruit and malts with a slight but unpleasant metallic tang to it.
Roasted copper hue with light, pale and enduring head. Very pleasant on the palate with typical Belgian fruit, but heavier roasted malt character than is typical (though quite pleasant to me). Rich mouthfeel with moderate effervescence.
Finish lingers pleasantly.
