COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We bring in the hops for this brew from New Zealand, where locals use the term “Boohai” to describe being thoroughly lost in a remote or non-existant place far from civilization. To us, that sounded like a pretty good place to be. These unique hops present a noticeable aroma of blackberries, Sauvignon Blanc grapes and pine which come together nicely with a complex blend of Belgian malts to make a deep, yet sublimely pleasant beer.

Clear deep amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of juicy blackberry, caramel, and pine mixing with a sticky smelling crystal malt tone. Flavor is roughly the same. Smooth and sweet with caramel and crystal malt combining with some blackberry, floral pine hops, a touch of melon, and an earthy caramel finish.

Brouwerij (931) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2013
Can. Pours a cleat red with two fingers of rocky white head. Settles quickly with a little thin lacing. Aroma is hoppy on the nose, with caramel, nutty, malty undertones. Flavor is mildly hoppy and citrus up front, fading quickly into nutty, caramel, and peated malt. Slight herba/vegetal tones with a mildly bitter finish. Really nice balance of hop and malt. Moderate to soft carbonation and light body, slightly watery texture. The hoppiness and strong malt profile are uncharacteristic of an amber ale, but it still tastes good. A light, drinkable, pretty tasty beer.

Pour out of 12 oz can, dark red pour with white, slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, nice resin, grass, slight berry notes, hints of spice. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight earth and spice, hints of a grass but pretty muddled, finishing bitter, dry.

adnielsen (9286) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 19, 2013
Canned @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, dark reddish orange appearance with a cream colored head. Fairly grapefruity, citrusy, a touch nutty, caramel/toasty malty aroma that pretty nice. A touch fruity, fairly dull and bitter hoppy, caramel, somewhat toasty malty flavor with a bland bitterness on the finish. The aromatic hops seemed quite nice but the hops were just dull and bitter in the flavor.
