3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle - 22 oz) Cloudy orange pour with a fizzy white head. Sweet malts pretty much dominate the aroma with some mild citrus and other fruit sweetness. Fruity and malty flavor at the beginning with lots of fresh fruit notes, but the flavor kind of mellows after that. Some light notes of sweetness at the end but nothing really flavorful. Dry and crisp finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a thick and fairly persistent eggshell head. Malty aroma has a strong fruity overtone, mainly apple with more than a hint of banana. Fruity flavor has just the right amount of sweetness, with a malty undertone and a firm hint of hops. Texture is firm and viscous, if none too fizzy. Sip it and enjoy.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Much better than my first experience with this brewer (Belgian Quad) but not by much. Pours a murky brown with a soda pop head, foamy then gone. The aroma was some fruit and a bit of caramel. No funk or sourness in the nose or taste. Taste was soda sweet with the same carbonation. This will be my last from this brewer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle shared by a BeerBeggar after a trip to Tulsa. This was a remarkably well made brew, right to style. Has nice malty backbone, which was accentuate by pear and other muted fruits. Strongly yeasty yet malty and drinkable. Had a medium body. It drank very well, was well made to style (it was definitely not a Saison and more of a BdG, for my understanding of the styles). I want to drink this again.

Bomber. Pours clear dark amber with an off-white head. Light body and carbonation. Clean, light toffee and hay taste. Crisp, refreshing and lightly lemony finish. A tip of the hat to Krebs, OK!

Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a burnt orange color with a tiny head and a bit of lacing. Nose is apple juice, honey, caramel, and must. Taste is caramel, copper or metal, and some mineral. Mouthfeel is cold and firm and the finish length is on the short side.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Bottle) Pours an even amber color with a small beige head. Spicy and malty aroma. Taste includes some muted spice, as well as lots of malts. Notes of pepper, candy sugar and rich caramel malts. Good palate, with low carbonation. Balanced for the most part, but gets a little sweet in the aftertaste. A great beer!
