3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. The nose is a medley of golden raisin, clove, ethanol and pear. Smells like an example of a Belgian Ipa. Medium-bodied with soft carbonation. The flavor presents pale malts enhanced by moderate fruity bitterness and spicy Belgian esters and phenols. Minerally, modestly sweet finish. Bottle kindly shared by biggsbowler!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Tapwerks OKC. Nice deep brown-tinted bronze. Moderate lacing. The character is firmly in the cane sugar vein, but this is very drinkable and flat out enjoyable. I dare someone to blind taste test this and guess it’s brewed in Oklahoma! Well done. (#4153, 6/30/2011)

Great Belgium style Trappist beer. Aroma is a full of subtle fruit flavors, it pours a cloudy amber color. The taste is bold & malty with some fruit notes and Belgium yeast is very present. Good beer overall, they call it DNR for a reason!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at McNellie’s in downtown Tulsa. Pours a deep red-amber color with a small beige head. Aroma of banana, dried pit fruits, caramel malts, candi sugar, mild cinnamon and spice, bread, vanilla, and booze. Flavor of caramel malts, dried pit fruits, candi sugar, vanilla, clove, banana, bread, and booze. Medium-full bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and fairly low carbonation. Reminded me a lot of an Abbey Dubbel. Not quite what I’d call well-balanced, but still a complex, interesting beer.
