Bottle at Paul’s place for Kan’s visit. Pours a murky light brown with a medium sized white head. Light sweet caramel, grain, slight musk, and a bit of old apples. Medium bodied, light acid note. Finishes with a touch of a slow bitterness.

Thanks again to puzzl for sharing. Deep amber pour with thick white head. The nose is slightly tart with a bit of pineapple character. There is a slightly wet rancidity in here that I can’t say I’m a huge fan of. It’s quite odd actually.

750 ml bottle shared by? Pours a hazy copper color with a large dense beige colored head that leaves thick lacing. The aroma is floral, spicy, grassy with some caramel and bready malts. The flavor is sweet bready malt, caramel, with spices, dry citrus, and floral notes. Medium bodied with lively carbonation and a nice dry finish. This is not a style I have had a lot of, but I found this to be enjoyable.

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a large bone colored head over a muddy amber body. Aroma is butter, cinnamon, pastries, alcohol and apple pie. Really nice. Taste is a bit sour with some green apple, and caramel. Doesn’t live up to the aroma. Fizzy.

On tap @ Capones. Amber brown pour.Aroma is amazingly complex and fits the flavor excellently but couldn’t fut my finger on the makeup of this beer besides the citrus and sugary notes. Best new beer of the night on tap.

This poured a light cloudy brown color with an off white head. Aroma was light spices, some yeast and some maltiness too. Flavor was light floral hops, some tartness, light spices, and yeast. Interesting stuff.
