COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with Maca Root, Blue Agave.

Beginning with the end – the most notable characteristic of this style of beer is its clean, crisp finish – almost champagne – like in its essence. The prelude to that finish is a crisp maltiness, and a welcoming floral and fruity aroma and sweetness from the blue agave. Moderate hop bitterness lends to a slightly dry finish. Overall creating a refined balanced beer for your drinking pleasure.

650 ml bottle from Cigarette City for $9.99. Golden color with a light orange hue with slowly dissipating head. No lacing to speak of. The aroma is fruity Belgian yeast with an herbal tone.

The flavor starts sweet with the yeast being predominate in the body. Candy sugar sweetness. Chewy, full mouthfeel. I can find an herbal note toward the finish, I guess it is the agave although I never would have picked out agave. ABV at over 9 % it doesn’t show any harsh heat or alcohol in the flavor. Real clean and smooth finish, lingering fruity yeast. Overall simple but pretty good flavor.

ben4321 (3759) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/10/13, My 100th Belgian Strong tick!

Aroma: The nose is Belgian yeast, spice, fruit, some veggie notes, and caramel
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden-orange color with a small white head and light lace
Flavor: The flavor is mid-sweet, a somewhat Belgiany feel, yeast, and a little spice
Palate: The body is light-medium, it has average-to-lively carbonation, and decent feel
Overall Impression: Thought this beer was solid overall, but no more than that. It drinks alright, and it has some flavor, but it certainly isn’t memorably good.

From ZDK’s tasting. The aroma is caramel, brown sugar, beets, cooked vegetables. The appearance is clear amber, white head. The flavor is very sweet, brown sugar, smoke. The finish is sweet, vegetable. Medium in body. Not bad. A lot going on in this beer. Maybe too much.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 21, 2013
Bottle that I took to a tasting at Matt’s place. Pours a clear golden orange with a thin white head. Sweet on the nose, definitely get the agave, but without looking for agave, I’d probably just go with ice cream and hints of herbal lemon. Sweet agave notes, candy and light bitterness. Tasty but nothing overly exciting.

Bottle shared by Jay at Zach & Matt’s tasting. Pours golden yellow with small white head. Aroma and taste of sweet malt, hops and some starchy vegetal notes (maca root??). Fairly sweet on the palate with floral and fruit notes and a dry finish.
