3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. cans poured to snifters, showing an orangey amber color, with a bubbly layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The nose was dried esters, some citrus as orange, subtle spice, and lurking alcohol. Medium bodied, with fair carbonation, the taste continued the fruitiness, was quite sweet, the alcohol remained somewhat cloaked, and there was a slight metallic/tinny hint that annoyed the finish. Otherwise, a decent Strong that didn’t project a lot of Belgian yeast characteristics, imo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy reddish brown from the can with thin wisp of tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is big on the Belgian yeast and the associated dark fruit and clove esters, a big of banana. Taste follows, lots of esters, pretty standard for the yeast. Not a whole lot special, but doesn’t miss any marks, alcohol is pretty well hidden.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium to deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. Nose is sweet with lots of belgian candi sugar, hint of vinous fruit and spicy vanilla extract. Palate follows witha creamy mouthfeel and a nice balance of sweet burnt sugar and some grassy bitter hops. Malt profile is toasty with some vanilla cream soda layers adding to the complexity along with a hint of booze and peppery esters in the late palate.

12oz can pours an amber/brown with a thin off-white head. Sweet aroma of dark malt, candi sugar, and Belgian yeast. Alcohol kinda over powers everything here, dark malts, light orange, dried fruits, yeast. Nope.

12 oz Can. Tasted on 10/11/14. Beer From Moore Liquor. The beer had an overly sweet aroma & taste to me. I'm not a huge fan of this type of beer but this was still a pretty. Ice beer. Needs some aging to mellow the sweetness. Will try again in a year to see.

begian golden ale on the back of the label? juuuuuust a bit outside. this golden pours darker than most dubbels and some BSAs. No complaints here, just not what i was expecting. In all facets reminded meof Monks Blood, with cinnomon and vanilla, and a backdrop of belgian yeasty spiciness being the main players. very enjoyable brew. thanks Hannah!"

Keg @ Andolini’s. Deep amber with a tight white head. Nose full if big fruity Belgian esters. Drying paint. Baked red apple. Taste is sickly sweet bruised forest fruits and mashed banana smoothie. Hot and slick. Quite malty. Very sugary. Full body, slick. Not my thing.
