Mahogany pour. Starts off a little roasty with light banana on the finish and some slight chocolate. The banana character really starts to come out and dominate as it warms. Medium body with high carbonation.

Tap 5-12-07. Medium brown, mahogany highlights, tan head. Fruity esters up front. Banana, plum and sour cherry or grape. Light roastiness and spice. Flavor much the same, fruity/residual sugar sweetness, light roast through the middle, until candied fruit takes over and lingers after you’ve finished. Creamy smooth mouthfeel, thins a little at times.

Tmoney99 (10455) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2007
Draft sample at MBGF07. Poured hazy brown color with medium fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Aroma was complex sweet malty yeasty. Medium body. Medium sweet rootbeer flavor with medium bittersweet with small alcohol bite finish. Good brew worth trying with some age.

decaturstevo (4930) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
RBSG grand tasting. Growler. A slightly hazed brown pour with no head or lace. A slightly sour drink that is almost tart. Solid palate that is neither fizzy nor watery. A good beer that I’m sure would be better from the tap fresh.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - JUL 24, 2007
RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting. Murky brown with a tan head. Fruity, brown sugar, a bit toasty. Full and sticky. Sugary finish of mildly burnt caramel. I’m not sure what htis beer wants to be. It’s not really bad, but confused. Does that make sense? No, not likely, but it’s how I feel about it.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JUL 11, 2007
Growler. Orange, white and beige color trifecta, cloudy and sullen. Looks burned and dusty. Oily, mostly diminishing, thin off-white head. The aroma is toasty, caramel, orange rind, grape, spicy yeast and plums, some light sugars and alcohol. Flavor is quite spicy, mildly bitter, moderately sweet with light to medium acidity. The mouthfeel is full bodied, sticky sweet and adequately carbonated. Caramel in the finish seemed physically tested, strained, like it was scraped from the bottom of a pot long forgotten on the stove. Bitterness is lengthy. Dissapointing.

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2007
07/02/07 from a growler obtained by my brother. Deep red mahogany pour with a medium light tan head. Cherried, prunes, dark fruit in a rich frutiy aroma. Medium body and carbonation with a rich and full mouthfeel. Treacle sweetness offset by enough bitterness to provide sufficient balance. Alcohol is not particularly evident.

RBSG 2007 Grand Tasting

Sweet honey, vanilla, peach, brown sugar. The complexity is high here. This is a good representative, as Belgians were in shorter supply for the tasting. I’m digging this quite a lot!
