3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The aroma is a strong sour Belgian ale with yeast and a little citrus. Pours a hazy yellow with lots of carbonation and thick frithy white foam that lasts and leaves some lacing. Taste is very bitter sour hints of apple citrus sweet leaves a bit of fruitiness on the palate. Very strong alcohol in the end. Overall not bad for a Belgian ale.

Tall boy at beir Barron (old brickskeller).
Pours yellowy haze with a thick, tall, prominent fluffy just off white head. Aroma is sweet, doughy yeastness. Flavor isn’t too terribly far off. A little spice. Would be a very nice introduction to ’different’ beers for a novice.

Can at the bar of soap. Pours yellow with an inch of white foam. Leaves a lot of lacing in the glass. Sort of a fruity, estery thing on the nose. Nice and bready on the tongue if not a bit oily. Has a weird grainy thing on the finish. Not bad for the money.

Bottle. A very serviceable strong ale, but nothing mindblowing. Flavor was a little light for my tastes.

Nice beer, bitterness that is not too much, not a top beer, but certainly more than average!

I had this at Global Brew. I thought this was pretty good, like most Belgian Strongs very flavorful. I would definitely drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured two fingers of head on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma was of dry grain and alcohol. Not great.
The nice was mild apple and pear with a mild bitterness. Smooth and mellow.
The texture was crisp with moderate carbonation.
An easy drinking beer, by no means the best or worst.

P: Clear golden yellow with a swampy white head that swirls around the edge of the glass.
S: Tropical fruits, cinnamon and bubblegum.
T/M: Cinnamon candy, bubblegum, coriander, tropical fruit, hints of bitter green bananas. Spice profile is aggressive and compliments the fruit well. Zesty vivacious body in a moderate body. Finish is wet but progressively dry and lingers fruit (guava and orange peel) sprinkled with ground pippali pepper.
O: A solid beer that delivers complexity and a great spice profile. It’s easy drinking for an 8% beer. Highly recommend it.
