Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours golden with a decent off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a spicy fruit and caramel malt flavor with a Belgian yeast feel - a liitle banana ester - and a very dry finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks OCBeer. Very subtly masterfully done. A little like a black IPA, with some Cascadian. Deep yellow with retained head. Nice use of spices. Very good drinkability and refreshing. Hoppy, but not at DIPA level.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from E street Liquor: Poured a dense golden brass color and was topped by a frothy layer of foam head. As for the aroma, my nose is instantly gratified with a heavy dosage of Belgian yeast that is decked out with spices and has scents of coriander, black licorice, and crushed peppercorn while also having a strange smell of dried out dank. The flavor is much more subtle in its delivery, however, it still does have a spicy profile of yeast that suggests all of the same ingredients that I mentioned in the aroma, but comes together well with the thick syrupy Karl Strauss malts and light background of zesty citrus like hops. This is an okay beer that’s meant to only be tasted once since I know I won’t be purchasing another bottle or ordering it in a bar unless they don’t have anything better.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, pours golden straw color with thin, bubbly head. Slightly fruity, citrus ester aroma (banana). Malty start with a lovely ease into balanced hops, leading to sweet and tiny bit spicy orange peel curaçao dry finish. Perfectly balanced. Great palate.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the bomber. Aroma is of noble hops, earthy and Spicy. Flavor is bitter, and finishes dry. Cloudy appearance with a thick head and good lacing. One of my first beers I’ve noticed a metallic taste, butI don’t think it detracts much.

22oz bottle. Rating #37. Nice beer, I didn’t get a whole lot of of Belgian character out of it, but good still. Sweet more than anything, it’s a nice sweetness though, mild bitterness. (2559)
