3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Caramel malt sweetness and apricot fruitiness are on ice because of the buttery diacetyl and DMS veggie heist. Towering foam clings onto the sides of the glass, but cannot shield the problems revealed.
Bountiful caramel maltiness benefit from the citrusy, orangey hoppy presence in the back. Ample carbonation and hop bitterness dry out the all-out candi sugar, and thankfully there is no sign of the aforementioned diacetyl and DMS. Either this keg was in the process of turning, or my nose was confused in its languages.
Nostalgia has its pros and cons.

Poured a hazy amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, clove, caramel malts, and other spices. Taste of caramel malts, light roast, citrus fruits, yeast, and a touch of alcohol.

Tap at the Drafting Room in Spring House. Orange, clear, tannish head. Fruity white wine or champagne like aroma. Malty carmel flavors, the carmel explodes in the finish. Very fruity, with slight wine-like notes present.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2010 HBF 2005. Nice amber with a good head. Aroma is slightly malty with lots of esters and fruit to balance it out. Flavor is mostly fruity with a bit of peach, apricot and some plum. Good amount of malt background. A bit of hops for bittering. Not too strong and doesnt finish too sweet.

Found on tap as a guest brew at Rams Head Tavern - Savage Mill. Deep clear rusty ambers and browns, thick light tan head. As it warmed, nice aromas of rum raisin, fig, and caramel get encompassed with a light fruity overtone. Dark fruity, malty flavors up front receive a light hop dose in the end. Very nice balance that never hits the sweetness line too hard. Medium bodied, but a tad watery in the mouth, rum-like, raisiny finish. Brewers Art makes really nice Belgian ales, and should be on the essential list if ever visiting Charm City....

Best beer in Clipper City? Maybe not, but Best brewery in Clipper City, definitely. Awesome place with a cafe/bistro feel to it. The resurrection was a overall solid beer that might lack the subtleties of better Belgians. A little one note, but a good one. Awesome Tap handle of a rustic crucifix.

I haven’t had many abbey-style beers in my life, but this one was pretty good. Color was a nice light copper. Nice hoppiness, with a definite kick of alcohol(7.5%).
