3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear orange gold hue with a thin white head that dissipates slowly. Aroma is spicy and floral. Think cloves, pepper, yeast and citrus. Taste is fruity and yeasty with some sweetness. Bananas, apples, lemon zest, biscuit maltiness, and YEAST. The strain really dominates the flavor. Good carbonation and somewhat dry finish with a hint of sourness. A nice interpretation of a Belgian.

Pours a clear, slightly bubbly, red tinged gold, with a medium, finely laced head, disipatesquickly. Earthy aroma, with citrus, banana, spice. Flavor is initially slightly sweet, followed by a noticeable rye note. Medium body. Overall good session ale - the one I go to when at Milwaukee Ale House. The label description is pretty accurate.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a murky rich gold with a medium lacy head. There’s some spice in the aroma, like coriander. Must be the licorice. Interesting taste. Complex. Slight citrus with licorice. Creamy mouth feel. Pleasant long finish. A pretty good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-gold pour with an ample white head that quickly settles down. Nose is cinnamon, spicy rye, a bit of anise, and plenty of yeasty, rustic charm. Very nice. Flavor reminds me of tangerine marmalade spread over a tender, flaky biscuit and dusted lightly with fresh ground black pepper. Carb is slightly aggressive, and the body seems a little slick. The perceived sweetness in the finish holds it back a bit.
Interesting and enjoyable beer that I am glad to have tried. Great nose that I wish I could capture and carry around with me. Booyah body spray? Thanks, Matt!

0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 For me, undrinkable. Awefully strong malted taste with no freshness from any hops crispness or anything. Just a heavy, malty disgusting beer with that belgian clove and earthy flavor. I’d rather drink boxer lager

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Very zesty, with lots of citrus flavor, but felt fizzy and unsubstantial. Good on flavor, but lacks body.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark gold color. A smell of belgiany yeast. Served at 60 degrees, I can appreciate the beer but the Belgian smell is a little too much for me. It’s a simple beer that may need a little more temperature control.

As soon as I smelled it I knew I wasnt going to be something I enjoyed. Unfinishable for me.
