Tap. Pours clear dark amber with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is caramel and cookie malt, earthy and herbal hops, oxidation and dates. Flavor is malt dominant with light alcohol, dark fruity esters, light hops and bitterness with a sweet finish. Full body, medium warmth and carbonation.

Pour is a amber with a large white head. Aroma is some caremel with Belgian yeast. Flavor is about the same some caramel malt with a green hop and tons of carbonation. Finish has some mustyness. Its ok but not flavorful enough to score this higher.

Clear amber colour, beige head. Malty aroma, caramel, sweet malty flavour. Rather middle of the road.

DSG (5634) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - DEC 30, 2011
Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Aroma of fruits, yeast, a bit of caramel and honey and light spiciness. Sweetish flavor, a bit caramelly, with fruity yeast and some drier spiciness. Medium-bodied with strong carbonation. OK.

draft at Blue Monk, Buffalo. Golden orange pour. Fruity drven flavor, jammy flavor, Pretty flat flavor, almost dusty & old. Pretty pedestrian IMO.

Draught at Churchkey. Clear amber pour. Clear amber pour with notes of caramel, grain, and touches of sweet yeast and spice. Very underwhelming, and nothing notable whatsoever.

mansquito (3281) - Nueva York, New York, USA - DEC 14, 2011
Chevy Chase, DC 11.2oz ($5): Pours a pretty amber color with a an almost pinkish head. Aroma is of Belgian yeast and hops. Taste is of ephemerally powerful hops, which seem to lose much of their force by the finish of the beer, by which time the beer is merely sweet and a tad soapy; however, some of the hops provide a mild, but pleasant, aftertaste. The texture of this beer is almost watery, although I cannot say that the beer is lacking in body. Do I like this beer? Yeah. It is good. Do I think that this is well crafted? No, not really.

Draught at TND: Aroma of malt, raisins, dark ripe fruit, and some yeast. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, dense, tan head that diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, Belgian yeast, medicine, raisins, grapes, and some caramel. Medium body. Slick texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, malt, yeast, raisin, slight medicine finish is lightly dry. 7%ABV is completely hidden throughout.
