COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This golden Belgian ale will mystify you with its medium body, its subtle malt and hop profiles, and its complex blend of spices. Fruit flavors, produced by a special strain of Belgian yeast, combine with Belgian candied sugar, chamomile, grains of paradise, and cardamom to create an unfiltered ale so intriguing, you’ll never want to get to the bottom of the mystery ... or your glass.

GT2 (8755) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 8, 2012
Tap at Duckaw Arundel Mills. Pours a low haze deeper amber. Medium off white head. Good retention. Nose is mega perfumey with huge sage. Some very musty attic notes. Big rose hips and grandmas perfume. Interesting... Taste is dry, moderately bitter, loads of sage and rosemary herbal bitterness. Not bad. Palate is slightly soapy and lavender perfume heavy. A bit papery. Lacing is thick and complete. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2013
Draft at brewpub. This one poured dark straw toward oprange with minimal head and turbidity. The nose was rock sugary malt, yeasty spice, and hopcitrus. Tasted as it smelled, with the body being a bit less than the nose would indicate.

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
12oz bottle. Looks kind of unimpressive. Mostly clear orange color. With a minimal white head, which fizzes away to pretty much nothing. Flavor is pretty nice, though. Good orange - citrus hops, that work well with the spice aromas, here. Medium body. Good lighter carbonation. Easy to drink. Light bitter, some orange zest. Interesting flavor.

Braudog (5903) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - JUL 16, 2012
Bottle. Bright orange-amber and still, yet producing a brief but nice head. The aroma is interestingly complex ... And almost breakfasty, with a cinnamon and nutmeg thing. It drinks with the same aspects. This would go well with an airport Cinnabon. (#4699, 7/16/2012)
