why the talk about this beer? .. Pours a hazy dirty gold, decent head . . lots of muddled spices in the nose, which follows quite a bit into the mouth, with warm booze and a good dose of sweetness .. all over the place! .. . happy to gotten to try it but i’ll pass if there is a next time .. . Don’t let her get to you. She asked for ’Pine Forest’, I gave her ’New Car’.

Thanks to someone for sharing this at the most recent Freetail bottle release party. Sorry for not remembering who provided it. The beer pours a golden-orange color with a white head. The aroma is full of herbs and spices. I get a ton of rosemary as well as some sage and coriander. There is also a little bit of citrus in the aroma. The flavor is also very complex. I get a lot of wheat and biscuit notes with the same herbs that I found in the aroma. The oak-aging also come through and I get some tannins in the flavor. The beer is fairly dry and very spicy and herbal. The Belgian yeast also comes through in the flavor, adding to the overall complexity. Medium to high carbonation and medium mouthfeel. Very easy to drink.

(draught at chumley’s) clear golden pour, creamy tan head that tends to linger. Nose of spices, Belgian yeast, caramel, and florals. Taste is cardamom, quite alcoholic, Belgian yeast, bitter orange peel, bubblegum, and tons of caramel. Medium thick body, huge alcohol bite. I feel like 1 is going to pute under the freaking table. Alcohol not hidden at all. It’s decent but so hot.

Hazy golden color with a medium sized, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of cardamom, vanilla, honey, brandy, and alcohol. Taste of a ton more cardamom, vanilla, honey, and alcohol. The cardamom really killed this for me.

Draft at DFH with Andrew. Pours a bright clear yellow body. Aroma is sweet Belgian CA dying and sugary malts. Mouthfeel is sticky with flavors of sweet oak, malts, candy.

Bottle - 750mL crowned - courtesy or GandGKevin. Gold bodied with a moderate, foamy white head. Aroma is strong cardamom, spices, grains and grass. A little too strong with the cardamom for my particular liking. Taste, however, is much more restrained spice, bigger grains, strong grassy notes, and a pleasant, subtle hint of the brandy barrel aging. Body is medium with a lively carbonation. Finishes with more grains, grassy notes, bready malts and a touch more spice.

Bottle picked up by my father-in-law in Indiana. Served in a tulip. Pours a light golden color with a slight bit of haze. Head is pretty short and falls quite quickly without leaving any lacing behind. The nose has some mild fruit esters, cardamom, and a bit of alcohol. A bit faint. Some mild wood as it warms up. The taste is a bit more complex and fulfilling than the nose. The cardamom presence is clear and brigs a light spice. There is also some very mild fruit and some light esters. The wood and a bit of brandy character start to come through as well. The finish isn’t quite what I would like--a bit too spicy and dry. Drinks fairly well, though I was expecting a bit more from this. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 12-23-2010

750ml Bottle: Aroma of Belgian yeast, Cardamom, lemongrass, and spices. Poured amber/gold in color with a small, white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Flavor is medium sweet and slightly bitter. Tastes of cardamom, light Belgian yeast, slight fruit, candi sugar, and spices. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Cardamom, light Belgian yeast, and spice finish is dry. Pretty one dementional. No hint of the 9.5%ABV. No oak or Brandy flavors or aromas.

750 mL bottle. Nose just explodes with cardamom, but also nutmeg and vegetal and woody notes. Lightly yeasty and heavily overspiced, reminds of my attempt at Mosher’s fruitcake. Clear golden pour with a large white head. Taste is lemony and full, sort of a wit on steroids, but with the underlying layer of spice that prickles and drags the comb over the tongue. Dry with perceived sweetness form the spice, dryish grit, has some tannin problems from the wood, only very, very faint oak and vanilla. Full body is creamy after a while but too aggressive at first. Wheat slime and lemongrass with saison acidity overdubs. Alcohol very well incorporated, one of those sneaky date beers for the insidious foodie. Totally one-dimensional, and basically extreme for extreme’s sake, but holds up well if sipped or paired with certain foods. Mild recommendation.
