4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
bottle. pours a clear golden with a thick lasting white head. oak in the nose, with what i found to be a strong cake batter nose, sugary, vanilla and inviting. great flavor, strong sweetness, that worked with the almost tobacco like oak flavors. thick but not cloying mouthfeel. touch of raw wood in the finish was the only drawback. loved that through most of this the rum barrel was in the background just helping to round out and emphasize the base beer’s fruitiness and warming alcohol.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Traded bottle from May 2013. Cloudy straw color with a big white head and nice lacing. Pineapple and tangerine aroma. That same fruitiness carries into the flavor but it finishes with a little rum kick and some lingering spice. Nice beer. Very easy drinking.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Our award winning Belgian-style golden ale Deceit was aged in oak rum barrels for 8 months to produce this strong yet deceptively smooth brew. This beer pours a beautiful golden color with alluring aromas of fresh apple and crisp white wine. Spicy notes in the flavor are complimented by tantalizing and complex characteristics pulled from the oak barrels. Slight fruit notes balance these elaborate flavors and transition into a dry and inviting finish.
