chickenflea (351) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Pours a semi-hazed auburn. Half finger off white head shows poor retention. Light lacing on the sides of the glass just fall back into the beer. Ripe sweet cherries and raisin really come out in the aroma which I found to be very pleasing. Some caramel malt, alcohol, yeast and biscuit are in there too. The flavor is heavy with prune juice and raisin. The cherry component is actually quite tart. A spicy bitterness presents itself, but it does not last. Very little Belgian yeast notes. Medium mouthfeel. Carbonation is average. Texture is watery. This beer is a good take on the style, although it tastes a little "young." It is tasty without being too heavy.

oldrtybastrd (3365) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 27, 2015
Pours a nice cola colored brown. Aromas of malts, fruit, and a touch of spice. Has flavors of chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Kinda thin in the finish.

altonbrownd (4590) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2015
Bottle from Liquid Assets. Dark brown body with thin, lasting head. Nose is sweet, malts, caramel. Taste is quite strong of brown sugar cane, malts, floral plums. Pretty good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5768) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with a small soapy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, sweet and had a bit of dark fruit. The flavor was tangy, bitter, toasty and a bit sour and medicinal with faint dark fruits. Short finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Draft at the saint louis brew house. Reddish color. Malty sweet flavor with a slightly boozy flavor. Interesting

dfinney23 (2391) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Sweet, metallic and astringent, which in my book is not a winning combination.

Travlr (17644) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 21, 2014

Braudog (6066) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle. Brown and a little murky, but looking more American than Belgian. The aroma, and no surprise the flavor, are both super sweet, overpoweringly sugary, and not in the high octane way the master Belgians are. This is sweet grape, not yet raisin, and downright artificial sweetener-strength sugary wetness. (#5857, 11/15/2014)

degbert (1480) - Austin, Texas, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber with a off-white, fine-grained, blown-insulation head. Nose is burnt sugar, pickles, cardamom, and roasted peanuts. More vinegar on the tongue; there is some plum and raisin, but that malic/acetic edge mars what might otherwise be a pretty decent stab at the style. Some sweetness as well. Finish is prickly and sweet/sour. Average.

bkurtz (1009) - PERU - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a hazy dark amber with an off-white head. Head dissipates quickly, Aroma is sweet plums. Taste is fairly complex with dried fruits, fig, and some caramel. I don’t really like how it sits on the palate and has some off flavors.
