Clear light yellow/golden color. Nice layer of white foamy head. Aroma is a bit funky, but the flavor is much more enjoyable. Some nice peppery/spicy notes really shine through here. Maybe slightly more syrupy then I’d prefer, but not too bad. Definitely very drinkable. Recommended.

25.4 oz bottle. Two of my famous breweries combined for one beer, although I’m a little puzzled by the other ratings low numbers.. Pours a hazy yellow-golden color with a tiny white head that dissipates immediately. Smells of brandy, a lot of dried fruits, what I’m guessing is cardamom, and an alcohol aroma. Tastes of dried fruits (grapes), some brandy hints, with a bit of an alcohol warming to it near the end. Got some bite to it, but reminds me of a wine, not a beer. Not bad, though I understand the lower ratings.

Bottle shared by markwise, danka. Unique in flavor this wasn’t as hearty as I was expecting given the ABV and the belgian nature. Has a lot of stuff going on and I’d imagine it’d age well. Thumbs up.

Tap at Roman’s. Pours clear/golden. Aroma is slightly astringent, reminds of mouthwash or Vick’s or something. Flavor is not too far off, but more reminiscent of black licorice/anise. Not a huge fan of this one, although this was a cool idea.

My least favorite fff ever. I liked the aroma and this is a very different beer. But it has a powerful taste that I just found as "Off"

Overly cardamom on the nose, which masks any other scents. A sip does reveal the slight brandy and sweet funky Belgian yeast notes, but it is all muted by the damn cardamom. Perhaps some age would help, but I’m not willing to gamble.

pours golden with a nice white head. Smells of sweet spice, apple pie like. Tastes sweet, and spicy, hides the alcohol well

Very interesting beer. Can taste the belgian funk. Finishes with an intense sweetness that is definitely different.

Picked up a 750ml at Friendly Package on my Thanksgiving trip to Muncie. Friendly Package guys know I usually pick up FFF beers and grabbed it from the back for me before they even put it on the shelves! Sweet! Pour is straw with a touch of amber. Small white head dissipates into a thin layer that sticks around. Aroma is mostly ginger... maybe a bit of the oak. Flavor is also ginger... Reminds me of a tamer version of Panagea (which was just too ginger for me). Slight bitter bite, some spice from the Belgian yeast, and not a lot of contribution from the oak barrelling IMHO... maybe a touch of vanilla. Some fruit (pear?) comes through after you get beyond the original ginger flavor. Not my favorite style, but very, very good. Glad I picked it up.

Light yellow color with little head. Not mouth depth. The flavor is short lived. Nice light beer on a hot day.
