Tap at foundry. Tap handle says minx. Aroma is earthy citrus with some rind, and black pepper, grapefruit. Darker amber.with ample head that subsides leaving lacing. Resinous citrus that is quickly balanced by som3 earthy Ness . really smooth and easy to drink. Very nice.

On Draft at the Harvest Cafe in Delavan, IL. THis is a great brew. The belgian yeast shows off. On the sweeter side I’d say but so good. Finish dry but really not overpowering at all. Full bodied. Great mouthfeel. Bright and vibrant pour.

crossovert (7886) - Illinois, USA - FEB 2, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2012 On tap as Minx. This one is sweet and not too hoppy, but it is good, it will remind you a of a Magma or something like that.

Called Minx, pours an Orange amber with a white head into a tulip glass. Nice aroma with an interesting flavor starts off sweet with Malts and notes of fruit then finishes with a hoppy bite. I was told I was drinking from the last keg in existance at 101 bottles of beer on the wall in Kent Ohio

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 29, 2011
Draft sample at CBW AKA Minx. Poured cloudy copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy complex yeast and floral hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy tropical bitter hop flavor with a medium to heavy bitter finish of moderate to long duration. This is a good beer that exceeded my expectations.

rudolf (2342) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 12, 2011
Tap @ BBF:NOTF. Nose is caramel, solid hop character, not much in the way of yeast. Kind of like a middle of the road barleywine. Flavor follows with noticeable alcohol & honey sweetness.

vyvvy (4133) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Pours copper with an off-white head that has nice lacing rings. The aroma has fruity earthy Belgian yeast and toasted malt along with mild woody and piny hops. Medium / full body with gentle moderate carbonation. The flavor starts quite sweet and malty with heavy nectar fruitiness from the yeast and spicy / piny hops. The finish dries out a bit and is hoppier, but still on the sweet side. Good beer.
