Off-red in color with a fluffy, long-lasting head and full aromas of fruit, bubblegum and spice. The caramel backbone of the malty body provides the deception of fullness, however, the finish is dry. The delicate citrus and distinctive bitterness intertwine with the warmth of alcohol and deep rum tones, finishing with a hint of cocoa. Simon Girty becomes more intense at room temperature and may be cellared for up to five years. A very different beer for those brave enough to try. Simon Girty....the person: One of the most pivotal and controversial figures in American history, Simon Girty, primarily through savage guerilla warfare, fought for what he believed to be right. He was noted as a “turncoat” and most often referred to as the “White Savage”. His bravery, courage and reputation, made him a common household name throughout the colonial period. Girty’s Run, which is a tributary of the Allegheny River, was named after Simon. The stream travels directly through the heart of Millvale and was once his passage way to the north. In honor and as a sign of respect, we have developed this beer for the free spirited individuals like Simon. We hope this minor tribute is enough to show our respect...Enjoy!

Pours a medium brown with a small tan head. Nice dark fruity and malty aroma. Smooth texture with a mildly tart taste. Not as flavorful as some original Belgian ales. A bit watered down but still has a nice flavor that fills your mouth and lasts for awhile. There is a nice warming sensation at the end. Not harsh and hide the alcohol well. Not the best Belgian style ales I’ve had but its one of the best that I’ve had the several I’ve from Draai Laag. I will definitely buy this again when I can find it.

Bottle thanks to Dan. Pours a cloudy reddish color with a large white head. A big fruity nose with oak and tart cherry. The flavor is mostly dry, tart, cherry and yeast. Some sweeter toffee and caramel. Berries. Quite oaky. Lively palate. Good. Unique.

750 mL bottle from the brewery. Pours a hazy dark brown color with a thin tan head. Fair head retention. Weak aroma of caramel malts, stone fruits and a bit of chocolate. The taste is caramel, nutty notes, raisin, stone fruits, spice. Medium bodied, low carbonation. The commercial description says I have to be "brave" to try this. Mmm... no. I’m tempted to deduct a point for their pretentiousness, but I’ll refrain. It’s actually a decent beer.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6830) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 28, 2014 Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very dark brown color with a large soapy-creamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet bread, toffee and plum. The flavor was sweet and tangy raisin, toffee, caramel, brandy, toasty malts and a hint of cream. Long finish of raisin, toffee, brandy and cream. Moderately full bodied. Quite nice.

12 ounce bottle pours an amber color with aromas of light fruit, some rasins, spice and some malt. Flavors are the same, rasins with some spice followed by some malt. Decent beer overall would drink again.

Bottle thanks to beerman6686, thank you!. Pour is deep, hazy, quad-like brown with a small patchy beige head. Aroma is light brown-sugar malt, faint spice, and and light fig. Flavor is deep spicy sweet malt with hints of toffee and faint cocoa. Not getting much orange in this. Faint alcohol presence. The finish is long with lasting sweet toffee malt and deep earthy spice. Really full bodied and full flavored. Flavor exceeds the aroma. This was a nice surprise, very tasty. Thanks again!
