Hazy amber. Light carbonation. Slightly cidery in the flavor. Sweet but not thick. Good, but not really interesting.

Hopswagger (196) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2014
P: Murky copper body with floating specks. Looks like a swamp bog. A bountiful display of dense cream colored pillow top head. Great retention leaving behind rocky cliff ledges and a smooth, melted icecream like, sea of beauty. S: Sweet prunes, toasted caramel malt, soapy grains, musty fabric covered furniture, wood rot and moss. Crystallized sugar and tannins. Aroma is really malt forward with subtle musty notes. T/M: Taste follows the nose and introduces cherry alcohol, grapes, and strong brewed tea. Medium creamy body with delicate carbonation. O: Super malted and nice sweet palate. I would like to age this and see where it goes. I would have liked to have more funk and musty notes but overall it a well done beer.

Cloudy orange-brown pour with plenty of white head. Aroma of light spice, yeast. Flavor is mildly yeasty, cider, spice. A pretty good showing for the style.

12oz to snifter. Medium copper colored with aggressive carbonation. Sweet malty flavor with yeast and bananas. A belgian appeal to it. Thanks okbeerfan.

Bottle, courtesy of OKBeerFan. Thanks! Big gusher here. Pour is hazy amber with a big cream-colored head and great lacing. Bready, tangy, lightly fruity, a hint of spice, somewhat grassy, and minerals in the aroma. Taste is vegtables, banana, some bubblegum, caramelly, bready, grassy, vanilla, and malty - hint of alcohol on the backend. Medium mouthfeel with high carbonatoon. Pretty weak Biere de Garde.

Lukaduke (1994) - Portland, Maine, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Pours a medium amber color with a finger of foam. Lots of fruity esters, round malt presence and a solid yeast profile. Simple yet well balanced and easy to drink. Good representation of the style !

Bottle thanks to ksurkin! Pours hazy copper, thick white head. Aroma of caramel, Belgian yeast, lemon, and some earthy tones. Flavor is bitter, orange peel, alcohol, resin, and roasted coffee bean. Finish is a bit foul for me, but appropriate effort the style.
