Butters (3735) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Near clear golden pour with good layer of white head. Big boozy beer. Sweet notes of pear of honeydew and lavendar. Belgian semi-funky yeast. Bready. Old and musty. Woody and a little vinous as well. Don’t think I actually like it all that much.

burg326 (3589) - Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Poured an amberish color from the bottle with aromas of wood, zest, light citrus and some vinegar. Flavors follow suit, light caramel thrown in as well, interesting beer, just not my style.

alexsdad06 (5342) - Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
750 ml bottle shared by brew3crew. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus, orange zest, wood, herbal notes, caramel sweetness, funk, cardboard. This was not what I expected. I almost bought this myself while on a trip and am glad I didn’t.

Thought this was the best Blue Mountain offering of the night. Sessionalble and tasty with a little bit of saison feel.
