3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another winner for BA. Great maltiness on the nose, tongue and finish. A perfect spike of spicy hops jumps in to compliment things. Fruit and yeastiness abound. A perfect foil for the andouille sausage pizza.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery...dark, coppery-hued body, a nice looking foamy head. The aroma is full and strong, filled with spices, hops and an interesting cellared mustiness. Classical Belgian aroma - malty and bready. The flavor is much hoppier than I expected, but its pleasant. It’s pretty strong, so you have to be careful not to drink it too fast.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy copper out of the tap, with small ring of lace - very musty, earthy, barnyardy aroma - this quality is quite present in the flavor as well, along with a pastry-like yeastiness - slight warming spices, a bit of tart funk way in the background - medium-sweet, with slight fruity esters - an odd, out-of-place hop bitterness makes it a little less enjoyable - otherwise not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong fruity esters are mired in doughy yeast character with some musty, herbal notes with some spiciness. Opaque dark orange-yellow body is topped with a thin white head that recedes to partial cover. Fruity flavour is musty and herbal in character with plenty of pastry dough like yeast and some darker malt character. Generally quite sweet overall with a metallic finish. Medium body with mild alcohol warming and lively, large bubbled, lightly prickly carbonation. Sampled at the Kennett Square Brewfest 2005.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma is sweet, belgian yeast, funky with some light fruits, and a light anise. Flavor is toasty malt, bread, light belgian funk, anise, slight spice, slightly grainy the finish. Medium body with a smooth palate. Nice complexity and very drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy dark amber-orange mounted by a small white head. Husky and bready, toffee-like malt nose that offers waves of Belgian yeastiness hinting at pastry dough, banana, mango, cloves and pepper. Interesting floral and roasty nuances. Finishes a good bit metallic and unpolished, but managing to remain quite dry. Medium bodied, moderately high carbonation, rather alcoholic.

Clear orange amber color with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast, spices and fruits. Flavor of spices, fruits and yeast with something that makes the experience unpleasant. The palate is light and creamy with moderate carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The fruitiness of apricots, apples and peaches resting on earthy and yeasty ground. An interesting creation which seems to lack that extra oomph to break it out of the mold (for me).
Earthy yeast stuttering amidst the fluttering orange soda. Hovering peaches until a covering bitter hop finish. Potential resides within, but nothing stands out at this point.
Meeting a meek king.
