22 oz. bottle shared by jsquire. Pours a hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma had big sweet malt typical of most malt liquors with some additional Belgian yeast and sugar. The flavor is sweet malts, sugary, and Belgian yeast with light spices. I think I was expecting more form this brewery.

Hazy golden color with a thin off white head. Sweet sugary nose with some berry notes. Corn sweetness wtih some Belgian yeast in the finish. Not that interesting.

Bottle at Natifest 12. Poured dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sweet spice malt aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Better then my expectations.

Sample at Natifest. Hazy amber color. Little off-white head. Light, smooth and crisp carbonation. Good belgian funky yeast finish. More beglain than American malt liquor flavor, thankfully. Bitter taste. Interesting brew.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2012 500ml bottle. Dull orange-tan, thin head. Sort of faded aroma, sweet honey. Sweet, honey tones. I don’t get much herbs and spice. Doughy, soft on the palate. Fruity, honey tinged yeast tones. Underwhelming, but OK.

Bottle shared by BarrytheBear...thanks Barry! - Pours clear light amber with a thin white head. Nose is surprisingly good--lots of tropical fruity notes, with a honey sweetness and a nice Belgian yeast note. Sweet malt. Taste is a lot of the same, but with the malt showing a little more, with a sweeter honey finish. Not lots of carbonation, but medium-bodied, smooth and slick.

Bottle thanks to savnac, thanks Ira! This was the only style I had not yet rated. Pour is clear copper with almost no head at all. Aroma is sugary sweet with hints of burnt caramel and a light apple aroma. Not flat, but not much carbonation at all. Flavor is also sweet malt, but not as sweet as expected. Light burnt marshmallow with a very subtle apple flavor. Finish is pretty clean with a slight lingering off sweetness. nothing too crazy here, but happy to have completed all the styles now.

Midnight sun head banger. 22oz bottle probably supplied by MikeTD.. Pours a medium cider brown pour with a thin wispy light milky white head... Aroma of sweet malty confection... Belgiany sugary flavor with minimal yeast. Not much character overall... Flavors are much of the same with sweeter malt profile. 7/4/6/3/12
