Haven’t been impressed by this brewery’s beers. This was a murky copper with a HUGE frothy tan head. Citrus, hoppy aroma. Fruity. Medium body. Taste was very bitter, sour. Unpleasant. Just didn’t like this.

On tap at the Hair of the Dog brewery. Pours a nice orange color with a nice white head. Aroma had a citrus hop smell to it with a nice spice mixed in. Great malty taste in this brew. Very smooth and enjoyable.

Pour was an orangish, caramel color. Large foamy head with no dissapation. Smells of citrus and orange, with a hint of spice. Taste is bitter up front and citrusy. Lingering taste of oranges on the back end.

frylock (1135) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2004
Golden brown with a large fluffy white head. Aroma is malty with hints of yeast, and some floral notes. Subtle spice with a malty body, nice hoppy finish. Light candi sugar like sweetness. Very enjoyable.

Not quite golden but cloudy amber with a creamy white head. Aroma of fruit, malty sweetness. Flavor of toffee, vanilla and spice. Alcohol is strong and warming. Chewy and flavorful. Another top notch brew from this fantastic brewery.

Batch # 53. Medium copper in color with a large off white, frothy head. Fruity, sweet and yeasty smells. Lively carbonation. Fruity, malty, sweet, hoppy tastes. Well balanced. Excellent lacing.

Okay, as is usually the case with this brewer, this beer foamed up like nobody's business no matter which method of pouring or glass style. It poured a light clear amber color with a huge off white foamy head that left latticed lace as it slowly began it's stubborn depature. A medium amount of carbonation is present, surprising, considering the amount of head I would had expected more. An aroma of malt, caramel and alcohol. A flavor of malt, caramel and alcohol with other sweet dark fruit flavors floating around. A medium body and a slightly sweet, yet somewhat bitter finish. A Belgian triple with barley wine elements. A good beer.
