Foxbush (1618) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2012
12 oz bottle dated 2012. This was offered to me by the bartender at Gibsonís in Oak Brook, IL. The copper colored ale poured with a big frothy head. A good looking Beligan Ale. The bottle conditioned ale claims 7% abv, it was very deceptive. There was no sediment. This is an excellent ale for this style. It seemed milder than others that I have tasted. Smooth finish with some sweetness.

Bottle dated 10-21-11. Funky barnyard, sweet, tart, and citrus/floral aroma. Copper with a moderate, quickly dissipating beige head, suspended sediment. Sweet funky barnyard flavor, some tartness and a spicy finish. Medium body. Nice at the end of this 105 degree day.

22oz bottle. Poured a relatively clear light-red/orange color with a small and quickly dissipating head. Aroma is some yeast notes, mild spice and fruit characters. Flavor is spice malt, with some fruity notes, nice and hoppy.

Beerathon (1679) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2012
UPDATED: APR 6, 2014 Yuck!Smell and taste are horrible. Color- orange with a fluffy white head.Didn?t like the hops, malts, fruitiness, or spices. I very much disliked this beer. Retried a bottle from 2009 and it was much better, so rating now reflects it.

Had in a bottle 2009 vintage. Really nice aroma with a fruity and spicy flavor. Hints of vanilla and orange in the finish. Very complex and good beer

Hazy copper-amber with an off-white head. Aroma of sour Belgian yeast and fruit. Taste is a little sour, mostly malty and yeasty. Dry and on the heavier side of medium bodied. Decent brew

Treebs (872) - , Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Poured from a 650ml bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy amber color with a nice frothy off white head with nice retention. Sticky lace down the side of the glass. S: There is some light yeast with some small fruit aromas. Cherries and other vine fruits are present. T: Same light yeast from the nose with the same mild fruits. Slight tartness and there is some banana as well. Although the flavors were kind of muted. M: Nice and refreshing. Light bodied with a decent carbonation. The aftertaste leaves something to be desired as it is non-existent. O: Definitely not a strong ale, more like a light Belgian brew. Decent, but nothing worth revisiting.

Pours a cloudy golden color with 1in of quickly disappating head. Aroma is of lemon and sour fruit. Tastes of,lemon zest, biscuity/bready malt and caramel. Full bodied with good mouthfeel. Overall, itís a decent belgian beer with a slight sour finish, but it just isnít my thing.

Prufrockstar (1696) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2012
12 oz bottle to tulip. Appearance: frothy white head. Gold, slightly hazy. Inviting. Leaves patchy irregular lacing. Aroma: immediately hit with the scent of apple juice when opening the bottle. Otherwise, esters, floral, fruity, Belgian yeast (aside: I hope someday my tasting sense and vocab is developed well enough to be able to replace "Belgian yeast" with a more accurate, discerning deScription). Palate: medium body, lively carbonation , mouth-coating. Taste: moderate hop bitterness, light-moderate sweetness, moderate duration. Not as fruity as aroma suggested, nice pumpkin-pie spice. Overall: starts quite nicely with a pleasant, playful interplay of spice, fruit, sweet and bitter. By the end, it tastes too much like a Belgian-spiced apple cider for my liking. Seems like a solid beer, but not one I'm likely to seek out again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
