3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed 1/22/2010 (Draft @ BJs Clear Lake, Houston, TX):
Pours an amber golden color, small white head. Clear body. Spicy dry aroma. Pale. Some fruitiness. Not super strong. Spicy creamy mouthfeel, bubbly. A little rough, slightly syrupy. Letting warm up a bit. Still a bit spicy and harshly carbonated. A little strong on the syrup. Okay.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft, Makerís Mark barrel-aged edition. Cloudy apricot, topped with a whisper of pure white froth. Green aroma. Unripe pear, fresh cut grass, green apple, vanilla. Bright, sweet, fruity, refreshing. The flavor goe back and forth. Sometimes itís too boozy; sometimes itís perfect. At the moment, itís got a heavy alcohol flavor tnat hits almost like vodka with heat and harshness at the sides of the tongue. Beer-related stuff is there as well: green apple, pear, roses, vanilla, new oak. A touch of brown sugar and butter from the bourbon as well. Medium-light body, mild carbonation. A little heat on the tongue, with mild bitterness at the finish. Not as hot as 10 percent would suggest. Sneakily boozy. Tasty stuff. Bought a glass then bought a growler.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at the Mesa, AZ location with a clear gold body that supports a thin white head. The aroma offers up sugary prunes and peach and a light amount of dates to go along with some Belgian yeasty spices. The taste starts smooth and soft with plenty of sweetness that heads quickly into sweetened spicy Belgian yeastiness. To midway the fruity esters jump forward where Iím getting peach, pear, apple and a sense of dates, honey and light boozy chemical notes that take this into the finish. Nice sipper.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Last beer in the flight and easily the 2nd best beer of the night. Surprisingly since I have lost a little interest in Belgian strong ales but this one wasnít overwhelmed with clove. Instead the nose was all sweet bubblegum and banana, flavor similar phenols, maybe only a hint at clove. Sweet alcohols. Golden color. Could use a little more carb but thats nitpicking.

The beers pours a golden amber color with a small head. Aroma of malts and mangos come across the nose. Taste starts out sweeter than I expected. There is bubblegum and sugar then some light malts comes through. Easy drinking beer.
