3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at beer revolution. Pours a deep coppery amber color. Very cloudy. Nice beige head. Fine bubbles that stick around for awhile. Surprisingly generic Belgian aroma. Caramel malt mixed with some Belgian fruitiness - raisins, plums, apricots. Little bit of rye spice and earth. Mild citric hoppiness. Taste is pretty sweet. Good dose of sugar. More rye spice, which helps but still needs to be turned up. Some hip bitterness in the finish. Carbonation is pretty normal. The sweetness and kinda meh Belgian notes give it an odds feel, though. Not great but not bad.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours a reddish amber with a one finger off white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of fruity Belgian yeast, citrus, rye malts, and some caramel. Taste is similar but also has some mild funk and more rye notes then the aroma. Has a medium-full body with a super creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. overall, a tasty and interesting take on a Belgian Ale.

A hazed amber pour with an off-white head. Very floral hop profile, lots of rye, and toasted bread. A bit of grass, notes of pine, and a lot of yeast. The flavor is very heavy on the toasted notes. Rye, mild sweetness of bread, and floral hops. Lightly grassy, some bitterness on the finish, and overall quite dry.
