4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nearly opaque reddish brown color with an absolutely masive tan head. Aroma is startling. Strong hints of sour fruit (i mean that in a good way) and maple sweetness. Incredibly complex flavor starts with a strong tangy cherry flavor before fading into a more citrusy finish. Strong warming alcohol finish but not enough to be abrasive. Highly carbonated fizzy mouthfeel. Lingering sour finish. Excellent.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a muddy brown with a good amount of sediment. Light brown head is thin, but lasts as it laces the glass. Aroma is malty, maybe a bit of sweetness, and spicy (nutmeg/cinnamon). Large, malty profile that is dotted with spices, fruits, and a touch of sugar. Earthy/malty combonation is a winner in my book. A great representation of a Belgain ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This was a little different than I was expecting. Hazy brown pour with a large lively head. Aroma was floral, fruity and sweet, and you know before tasting that there will be some sourness there. Flavor has quite a bit of barnyard that comes right in the front followed by tart fruits, burnt sugar and a sour finish. Definatly a combination of flavors that I haven’t experianced but tasty and enjoyable.

Special Brew 2, according to the cap. Beer pours a hazy, medium-dark amber-brown color with an average-to-large, frothy, off-white, lasting head. The aroma is malty with moderate notes of toasted grain, cookie and caramel; hoppy with moderate notes of dill-like herb; yeasty with a light note of dough and moderate notes of barnyard; moderate notes of cranberry and cherry, spciy alcohol, toffee. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and moderately acidic/tangy with a long, lightly bittersweet, lightly acidic finish. The body is light-to-medium, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.
