3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Cloudy amber color; big head. The carbonation is suspiciously too high; the aroma smells a lot of yeast (at least this is a character in some beers); with some hops. The body has a correct strength; the malt has a very spicy and yeasty flavor, therefore the final is quite astringent; the bitterness is high; and luckily there is no trace of the feared infection. A rough Strong Belgian Ale, but sometimes enjoyable.

Complex beer. Lovely hazy amber. Belgian yeast profile, some mint. Not very well crafted. Sweet grain.

cloudy brown, smooth white head.
spicy aroma. slightly fruity, oranges.
flavor is hoppy, flowery, grapefruit and faint exotic fruits, i’d guess some of the fruityness is in fact from yeast. yeasty. nice. complex.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22. Pours a crystal clear bright medium amber with a gigantic surging sudsy mound of creamy mousse that fades to a rocky layer of foam with tons of eggy sedimentary lace. Not a masterpiece visually, but very appealing to look at for sure. Big tangy yeast phenols on the nose, kind of like ripe oranges heated up a little bit and mulled with cloves and spices. Yeah, imagine that--funky yeast business from Epic. Who knew? Everybody. But that’s alright, that’s the man’s thing. Creamy medium body, goes a bit watery in spots. Soft carb. Cinnamon, toast, oranges, and treacle on the mid-palate. Spice gets a little hot and dry on the finish.
