A Belgium-style ale brewed with the changing seasons in mind. Firm toasty and sweet coffee-like malt flavors are underpinned by a subtle vanilla oakiness. Peppery spice adds character to this beer’s slightly dry and warming finish. 35 SRM 24 IBU 15.5 Plato

sebletitje (8116) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JAN 20, 2011
Bouteille partagée avec Markwise. cuivre, beige. Arôme malt, légèrement grillée avec du caramel, fin nez de brassin et de grains. Au palais, note de cara malt avec note grillé, blé et orge, un petit fini de levure donnant à cette bière une approche belge ainsi que des fruits un peu tropicaux venant peut-être de la levure.

"kind of a different direction for a winter warmer...belgian aspects lighter in the aroma. mostly roasted malts with a touch of peppery spice and fruit. in the flavor, the 3 aspects are all about equal, with slight chocolate and caramel as well. light and robust at the same time. pretty cool beer. unique."

Ibrew2or3 (7661) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 9, 2011
12oz bottle pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma is roasty malts, spicy yeast, cloves, coriander, a touch dusty and more yeast. The taste offers up various malts and spiciness with roasted malts, a sliver or two of caramel, cloves, allspice, coriander and yeastiness. Wow. The spices, roasted malts and sense of caramel all go very well together here and it finishes up with a mild note of red apple. Tasty stuff.

Bottle from snojerk321. Karl Strauss is in the house ho. Karl Strauss.com holler at your boy. Orange Blossom fest drunken debauchery whats up bitch thats whats up. Driving the palate van around with people sitting on cases like a motherfucking taxi cruising through Riverside breaking all the laws. Oh yeah. Nose on this one is light belgian yeast, touch of brown bread, vanilla, and caramel. Pretty pleasant nose actually. Great looking beer, awesome lace and head on top of a brown beer with nice red hues. Brown bread, light fruity yeast notes and a touch of vanilla. Easy drinking yet rather complex. Light sweet and dry mouth feel. Really nice Bet this mother fuking thing wasn’t made in mother fucking Stevens Point. Step your game up.
