   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
kramer (4687) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Tap, brewery. Pours a slightly hazy dark amber with a minimal white head that fell to a thin ring. The nose is dark malt with a slight Belgian yeastiness. Rather sweet smelling with some dark fruits. The flavor is pretty sweet with a bit of a slight chemical note, light citrusy hops, and a bit of yeastiness. Lingering citrusy hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a little clingy with some sticky caramel malt. A bit of a made up style perhaps, but not a stellar example compared to the few others Iíve had. A little trying to consume a whole pint of.

boFNjackson (4025) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Tap... Poured a rusty, dark reddish color with a thin head. Nose had yeast spices, cloves, Belgain beer characters. Nice mouthfeel, decent carbonation. Some malt sweetness up front with dark sugars and caramel maybe. Dried out towards the end with notes of yeast spices and such.

hbmason (1087) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2012
On draft at the brewery. Unfiltered brown color. Nice fruity aroma from the Belgian yeast. Flavor is fruity and sweet.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Hazed, murky orange/brown, frothy head. Aroma of toasted malts, Belgian yeast. Taste is nice, sweet malt, definite Belgian yeast but not overpowering. I wasnít sure what to expect, but I was pleasantly surprised.

after4ever (5932) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2012
Draft at special brews. Pours a murky dark brown with a dense and fizzy tan head. Big barnyard nose. Surprisingly leathery and funky. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, molasses, and barnyard on the mid palate, fading into a minerally dry finish.
