4 oz. sampler draft at the Haymarket brewpub in Chicago Illinois. Pours a copper colour with decent head and lacing. Aroma is grainy and a little citrus hop. Taste is dry and bitter sweet. Nice.

Draft at Haymarket, pours a gold with white head. Aroma has honey, spicy yeast, some fruity pear and apple. Flavors of honey, pears, grapefruit, earthy rye and white pepper. Syrupy feel. Pretty sweet and a bit boozy, the original is big enough.

NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 27, 2011
Draft at Haymarket. Really nice beer and quite likable for the style. Pours a nice coppery gold. Nose is fruity with peaches and citrus dominating. Light white pepper and clove notes in the background. Light graininess as well. on tasting, it really is quite bitter and very dry. Some light grain astringency on the palate as well, but it works. The yeast character is likable here in combination with the big amarillo notes. Not too shabby.

TheAlum (6956) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a well hazed dulled golden amber hue, some murk to it, frothy brighter white head dies to a thicker film, laces ok overall. Aromas are offering a decent dry hopping and some mellow fruity sweetness beneath, touches of esters and bready malts, apple and pear touch gently, fresh florals, touches of lemon and grass, gentle bread dough yeast. Mellow spice, dryness, almost flaked wheat, and gentle rye. Initial is medium bodied, a bit heavier with some sweet thickness up front. Honey, bready malts, dough, and gentle apples. Some decent dry earthy hops try, but are beaten. Gentle spice, yeast, and dough. Middle shows some more lemon into the fold, earthy hops, dryness tries to fight some sweet estery and malty girth. More honey, as the backend gets a touch more bitter and hoppy, lemon and grass, florals, gentle lingering spice into the finish. An odd beer, but count me as one of the people that didnít love regular Angry Birds (Which Iíd prefer to this). Itís a bit big and sweet for me, dipping to far into the Belgian influence. Gentle spice, apples, sun tan lotion, faint coriander and chamomile like gentle fleeting herbal feel. Meh. The beer does dry up more into the finish, but itís already lost me with itís bigger bold sweet Belgian qualities. It isnít a bad beer, it just isnít to my tastes.
