3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I just noticed that this is a spring seasonal, so maybe I’m drinking this one a little too late. Nose is surprisingly malty. Some spice. Not heavily malty, but it just stuck out on the aroma. Malt dominates the flavor profile also. Again, it’s not heavy. The weight of the beer is lighter than I originally expected. The fruit comes out to play a bit. There’s notes of fruit rind and skins aplenty. In general, the beer was a bit flat in terms of flavor. Simple. Not much here. Wish I had this fresh.

Bottle from z and z. Pours a translucent amber with thin off white head. Aroma is crisp, fruit and malt. Taste of fruit and malts with a yeast hint

A - Pours up a clear amber. I finger off white head that sinks into a razor thin island.
S - Over ripened pears, sour apple, cider, toffee, spicy Belgian yeast.
T - Sour/tart fruit-apples, a moderate spiciness, Belgian yeast, a mild tart cider shows up more and more as it rests.
This beer is strange. The longer it sets the worse it gets. Even with different temperatures. It’s great right off the pour. Weird.

Bottle shared by Lukaduke, thanks! Dark golden toasted yellow with a finger of sudsy head. Nose is pear, apple, fruit. Mouthfeel is low carbonation with a round, medium body. Taste is apple juice, pear, some earthy grass notes. Finish is fruit juice, some grassy notes, little bitterness. OK.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Another bottle busted out by Deuane.
A - Pours murky amber brown with a small half finger tall white head leaving light lace down the glass.
S - Smells of light spice, graham cracker caramel malt, candied sugar, and some dulled fruit like pears and apples. Not too bad so far.
T - Starts off with a bit of candied sugar sweetness quickly giving way to a mix of graham cracker caramel malt, dulled fruit, and some light spice. A bit too thin for my liking. The finish is a mix of sweetness and light fruitiness, lingering for a short period of time.
M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. A bit thin in the feel with some lingering sweetness in the finish.
O - I am not sure how old this one is but either way it was not too bad but it isn’t something I would go seeking out.

Smells weird, orange with sweet amber malt smells. sweet breads ? I don’t know, unique. Amber with quick to settle head. Sweet malty drink. Nice to an extent.

This one was surprisingly tasty. Nice fruity aroma with hints of malt and yeast. Flavor is fruity and sweet, with notes of caramel and honey, as well as malt and yeast. Light and crisp finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours translucent medium yellow with a medium off-white head. Nose is rather sharp malts, spicy yeast notes, and some floral hops. Flavor is balanced towards malt, nice citrus notes in the middle, with hops and spicy yeast evident towards the end of the drink. Some alcohol evident. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Absolutely the best offering yet from Krebs.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: poured into a snifter. It pours a beautiful amber color which leans more towards the red side. Good head retention and a decent amount of lacing.
S: A mix of sweet and sour. some sauerkraut, as well as some sweet breakfast malts. A hint of fruit and spices.
T: slight cabbage flavor. Very sweet malts. Very interesting biere de garde. Caramel and kind of fruity. A little too sweet for the style.
M: Very smooth and palate pleasing. Good carbonation level.
D: its drinkable, but not a good representation of style. Almost takes like a belgian blond.

UPDATED: SEP 27, 2010 Michael, the brewmaster, recommended this one to me in person, bumping into me by chance at the store.
Another tasting, this time on tap. Exact same score from bottle many, many months ago (although only recently entered). Pours a murky orange, medium head and lacing, sweet aftertaste.
