2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Bocktown. Meh...OK for an American attempt at the style but a little weak. Aroma was decent. Brown sugar, Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Pour was a nice murky brown with a two finger tan head. Taste was disappointingly weak. Watered down and thin. Brown sugar, plum and raisins in the front. Hints of cinnamon and candi sugar as it warmed. Nice yeasty bite, but the problem is that it turned to water in after the swallow. All flavors were washed away. Very light carbonation.

Aroma is more of a weisenbock with clove, banana and such. Flavor is pretty well balanced with some hints of raisin or prune and faint sourness. Finish is a bit sour with some stickiness. I like this beer quite a lot. Thanks argo0
