4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light hazy amber with a thin, fine head that fades quickly. Bready aromas accompanied by light caramel and a sublte noble hop spice; surprising Belgian-esque phenols. Full bodied with caramel and light anise, low noble hop flavor with medium finishing bitterness. A seriously underrated beer in my opinion.

12 oz bottle. Pours just fine with a proper head. A rather weak body delivers little taste. The alcohol at a supposedly higher level failed to stimulate.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Pours a murky copper color with a dense cream head than lingers. Caramel, toffee, prunes, raisins, and figs form the aroma. Flavor is lacking behind the bigger aroma. Has a bit of cherry and dates, but it’s predominantly dry, with a touch of tea-like flavor at the dry, bitter finish. Body is moderate, with moderate to low carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured up on tap at Buffalo Bill’s with clear copper body and gold edges supporting up an off white head and leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is a little spicy with hops as well as some floral hops too. The taste is similar with a mix of spicy to floral hoppiness followed by a modest amount of vague hop bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Mildly malty aroma - not much there at all.
Appearance: Hazy light amber, moderate white head.
Flavor: Bananas, a little caramel with just a little hop bitterness.
Palate: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation.
Overall: Enjoyable, definitely not remarkable would probably be a basic go-to beer if it were served from a beer engine.
