3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap served in a tulip glass
A - Pours a murky amber orange color with a fleeting off white cap. Mild lacing
S - Roasted toffee/caramel, yeasty, cloves, dates, golden raisins, orange tea, smells pretty sweet.
T - Sweet toffee malts, caramelized brown sugar, cloves, nutmeg, sugary dates, raisins, red delicious apples. Has a strong orange tea flavor that really stands out. Stone fruit mixes in well with the caramelized malts. Some peppery bitterness starts to build riding through to the finish.
M - Medium to full body but thins out as it sets, low carbonation, smoother feel.
A well blended brew that went down smooth. Not as good as I was expecting but still good. Glad I got to try it on tap though.
Serving type: on-tap

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 itís 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.

Batch #8. Pours a dark, copper color with a thin white head. Light, cherry aroma with a thick malt presence. Nice, tart berry flavor with a malty kick. Really good collaboration.

Earthy yeasty bubblegum aromas come from this clear brown brew with a bit of fod floating around. Sweet malty with a typical belgian flavor and a nice war,th in the aftertaste. Its medium bodied and leaves a nice feeling on your pallet.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Cherry and faint wooden notes. A sweet yet boozy aroma back the bet as well. Cherry and amaretto start, while whiskey finishes the palate. A great, evenly balanced brew that offers a lot as it sits. Incredibly dynamic flavor profule.

Nice brew. A little musky for my taste but a great crossover Belgian/American ale
