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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 ericandersnavy. Pours a pinkish color with white fizzy head. Aroma of citrus, apples. Flavor has a little sweetness, faint fruit, and some malt. Light body, fizzy carbonation. It’s ok.

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!

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 mL bottle. Dark, orange-brown, hazy pour, with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is anise, apricots, sourdough bread, coriander, and slight apples and caramel. Fairly dry, malty, and lightly spicy. Medium body, a little syrupy, creamy, and slightly acidic. Overall, this is a very interesting, flavorful beer. Darker, thicker, and more flavorful than I expected.
