On draft at Monks, pours hazy gold, well carbonated, medium bodied. Aromas of grass, grapes, peach and hops. Taste resembles cherry chloraseptic spray when it drips down a numb throat. Really enjoyed that cherry medicinal quality to this brew. Other notes of spicy saaz, caramel, and tangerine. Slightly sticky in the mouth. boozed out and warming in the chest yo

Bottle. Almost clear dark yellow with little head or lace. Very nice round aroma of ripe pineapple, some grass and a little clove. Those continue into the flavor with bit more spice, some yeast, a little resin, and a good play between sweetness and bitterness that keeps going. The body soft full and soapy. Thatís a highlight. Itís incredibly balanced for such a big beer with the alcohol very well hidden. Itís a gem. I canít imagine letting it sit for long.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft on tap at WLV De Molen Event (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich deep copper glowing hue, a touch of haze, rich frothy tannish head cakes well and laces ok overall. Rich deep coloring is alluring. Aromas are rich grapefruit and lemon, touches of florals, grass, and mellow touch of bitter pine. A touch of bready malt, kiss of toffee. Richly grapefruit and lightly gumball nose. Initial is medium bodied, a bit lighter with a firm grapefruit and fuzzy peach feel, a sufficient bitterness, florals, and touches of grass. Mellow bready and touches of pale malts, grains. Backend gives a touch of dryness, spritzy citrus, and floral and grassy hops. Backend gets a touch mellow, lacking the kick of bitterness to linger and assault the palate I was expecting. Good flavors in front and middle, trailing off with a touch of grapefruit juice. Nice.
