3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 5-23-2010 at Fort Wayne Granite City. This draft beer pours a small very fizzy, very bubbly head that is very long lasting, opaque butterscotch body, no carbonation observed, and no lacing. The aroma is malty, light fruitiness and spicy. The taste is sweet, lightly acidic, banana, lightly fruity, spicy, and crisp. The palate is soft carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. They have a different take on this beer style than what I am used to and I really question that this beer is 10.2% ABV. Where??

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent belgian like aroma. Flavors are fruity, flowery, and suprisingly fresh. The problem here is a mushiness in the malts and a noticable cloying sweetness at the finish. A good attempt but needs to be more serious about belgian style cloning.
