3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom poured into Snifter glass.
Pours a cloudy amber with some reddish hues and has a light, fluffy off-white head that allows for a wispy layer to remain atop the glass. The aroma has belgian yeast, soft malt, sweet tart cherry, vanilla and an overall spiciness. The flavor is sweet malt and cherry upfront and accompanied by belgian yeast, malt, oak, alcohol and spice. It finishes dry and tasty. This is a medium bodied beer with a pleasant amount of carbonation. Honestly, Its better than expected with nice Belgian characteristics and the cherry and barrel characters are soft but noticeable. Complex and thirst quenching.

Bitter and sweet all at the same time. Not my palate, but I give them credit for making this.

Honestly this didn't leave much of an impression on me. Wasn't bad, just not memorable at all.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
1pt 9.6fl oz bottle poured into a Westmalle Trappist glass. Pale cloudy orange with thick offwhite froth. Aroma is Belgian sugar and grapes. Smelling it alone gives me the sour mouthwatering effect. The flavor is a Belgian ale with strong undercurrents of wine. The flavors blend together in a way that just works. Palate is very smooth, slightly effervescent. Short bittersweet finish. Wow, bravo Sam & co. Very nice.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber - Rosey peach colored pour with white head. Nose is heavy on yeast, grapes, and light fruit. Pretty heavy on the sediment for an initial pour from a bottle chilled upright. Taste is almost like an Abbey Dubble with some grape juice. Light on the palate. Well done for something I didn’t have high hopes for.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle at Akkurat, shared by friends. Pours a semi clear light amber with a rather viscous, oily appearance. Aroma is quite vinous with caramel, honey, ripe tropical fruit, orange and oak. Taste is caramel, honey, ripe tropical fruit, orange marmalade, roasted barrel notes and sweet white wine. Mouthfeel is very smooth and somewhat oily with almost no carbonation. Excellent!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (750 ml) @ Akkurat. Shared by Ansalon, thanks! Amber/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is soapy with winey notes, a bunch of spices (including coriander), orange peel and oak. Taste is also quite soapy and malty with spices, orange peel notes, light winey presence and oak. Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Soapy finish. Tasty, but quite heavy and the spiciness doesn’t help the drinkability. A Dogfish Head kind of beer...

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Akkurat shared with friends. Hazy copper pour with thin white head. Aroma is quite winey, lots of grape, leafy notes, some cherry and a lot of spice. Taste is not as fruity, lots of wheat, grainy, still a strong winey character, some alcohol. Palate is full bodied with med carbonation, a bit heavy.
