3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Proof. Murky brown-orange pour with thin kahki head. Aroma is bready and dark fruit. Taste is sugary dark fruit, banana, spice and caramel. Nice palate - medium that dries out and leaves you wanting more.

Pours a dark hazy reddish brown on tap with thin tan head and little to no lacing. Aroma of belgian yeast and dark fruits. Taste follows suit, but a chocolate malt and toffee backbone. Good balance and nice for the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours cherrywood brown with no head. Aroma of Belgian yeast, sweetness and slightly boozy. Taste follows, too sweet. I'm a fan of this style and this does not represent well.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color is a deep cloudy red with a if fluffy head. Flavor is sweet lime with a rough caramel flavor. It is a little caustic and dirty, not feeling happy about this.

Draft at Proof. Deep hazy brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma first hints at estery yeast, plums, with bits of toffee malts. Flavor is chewy toffee, dark fruits, and bitter apple in the end. Not bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to OmegaX for the share. Pours a cloudy brown, almost like apple juice. The smell was full of yeast, crackers and dried citrus. This was a fairly sweet Belgian, lots of cherries in yeast in the taste with plenty of mellow, bready undertones. At 8.8% it was fun to drink as well - cheers!

On tap at ccb. Nose is plums and prunes, some belgian yeast, toffee, and some beets. Pour is a dark brown with an off-white head. Taste follows suit with tons of fruity esters, some yeast, and a good dose of toffee. Good stuff.
