COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich brown ale inspired by the enigmatic monastic brews of Belgium, and the mysterious mist shrouded jungles of the tropics. Brewed with real cacao, and spiced with cinnamon and sweet orange peel for a sensual delight. A brew to be sipped, savored, and enjoyed!

Clear medium amber. Light white lacing. Aroma is of lambic sour yeast and apples. Sips full and slightly lively and sour. Middle is slightly spicy and finishes tart and dry. I would consider it a sour brew or a good beer for anyone that likes sours.

Pours a muddy orange brown with a beige head and aroma of spices, yeast, and fruits. Taste is similar, of spices, fruits, citrus, wine notes, and lemon with a yeasty, spicy finish. Nice brew

TheJester (1790) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
750 mL bottle acquired in trade. Probably from tom10101. I gotta write this stuff down. Nice pour - copper brown with a foamy beige head. Sweet, fruity (grapes) aroma also has some citrus and a touch of funk. This beer is way drier than it smells, though. Wild yeast. Almost too dry. A lot of the subtleties are gone. The spices save it, though.

Aroma was malty and fruity but also not that strong. Nice dark copper flavor with a small head. Good clarity. Light and smooth mouthfeel. Decent carbonation. Spicy and tart flavors; however, the Belgian character did not stand out as expected. Pleasing but not their best.

On tap at Royal Oak Beer Fest. Sourness akin to a Flanders red. Creamy mouthfeel. I...er... remember enjoying it even though I might have forgotten the rest...

rosenbergh (6524) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2013
750 ml bottle. Blend #15. Bottled at 12/27/2012. From alesbymail.co.uk. Dark brown colour with an average sized foamy off-white head. Spices, citrus, malt, yeast and The flavour is yeast, citrus, mild spices, mild tartness, mild hops and sweetish malt. Quite enjoyable. Brown Ale? I don't know but it doesn't bother me... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beerathon (1103) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2013
The head on this beer is amazing, staying power to spare. A nice bit of funkiness, but the lingering flavor is that of a Belgian brown with an array of spices. Enjoyable.
