This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy white colored bubbles that were and left behind a hazy softly carbonated orange colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a medium caramel aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt and fruity. An OK brew just nothing special.

Had this on tap at the brewpub but was in town for a wedding with a lot of family and didnít take good tasting notes beyond the numbers.

BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - AUG 9, 2009
After hearing all the bragging about this beer I was disappointed to get to the brewery and they only had two beers on and another guest tap. Than I get my chalice of bubbly golden liquid and itís fucking flat. So I could not really experience the hype. Sweet simple candy sugar notes and a bready biscuity note throughout. Not really alot going on with this one.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 4, 2009
750mL bottle courtesy of bdigital, poured into a tulip. Pours a hazy golden orange underneath a big creamy white head that stays on as a healthy cap for the entirety of the session. No lacing to be found though the body clears up completely as it warms. The aroma is very sweet with lots of sweet Belgian yeasts and sugar coated light fruits, definitely some apples and pears in there. Some spiciness and a bit of dry earthy character as well. The taste is all over the place and has a big sweet fruit backbone that has not only apples and pears but some bananas as well. There is also a more noticeable spiciness, especially in the finish. The alcohol is also more present than I would like and the finish is an odd mix of super sweet sugars and dry spiciness. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and almost syrupy over time with the sugars really coming through on the palate. There is probably a little bit too much non-integrated stuff going on in this one to really impress me - spicy yeast, lemony hops, lots of sugar, light fruits. I think the ingredients are there, and itís definitely a good beer and Iíd go out of my way to try something else from this brewery.

Block (1637) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2009
Amber pour with a white head. Aroma of pale bread, hops and fruit. Taste is light with a small alcohol bite. Masks the 11% alcohol well without getting too dark with the malts.

Dogbrick (9096) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2009
Sample at Neilís HSC initation. This beer is a lightly hazy golden-orange color with a medium thin ivory white head that recedes steadily. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Lots of fruity esters in the nose, mostly lemon and banana. Notes of malt as well. Medium body with flavors of sweet fruit and malt along with some yeast. Lemony finish with a fruity aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ibrew2or3 (7312) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 25, 2009
Courtesy of kiefdog. Pours with slight haze and white head. The aroma is mildly tart followed by malt and prunes and a mild sense of black pepper. The taste is sweet, candi sugar and spicy yeastiness. It becomes a bit tart midway and slightly sour too. It ends with diminishing notes of prunes, cherries, raisins, black pepper and sugar sweetness.
