2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz. bottle, pours deep gold with almost no head. Not much aroma, slight grain, grass, and biscuit notes. This doesn’t taste like a Belgian ale, more like a watery British Bitter. It has fruity notes which are mostly masked by the astringent bitterness of the hops and overall dry feel in the mouth. I don’t sense any spiciness. This is similar to a home brew by someone with little experience, it’s drinkable but not within style and nothing to distinguish it from the pack.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, clear reddish-orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, toast, hints of banana, clove, spice with a hint of cinnamon, slight yeasty and earthy tone as well. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, red fruits into some banana, toast, slight spice, yeast, touch of herbal hops, finishing fairly sweet, spicy. The combination didn’t quite work for me.
