3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spicy like a Unibroue product. Lots of Nutmeg and cinnamon, maybe cloves. This should be a Christmas Ale. It’s fantastic as long as it stays cold (like most heavily spiced beers) but with warm food, outdoors in Miami’s 98 degree weather, it gets nasty quick. On Tap at Yard House, Coral Gables.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
on tap at brewpub -- poured to shaker pint despite a rack of chalices. aroma of yeast and fruit, slight funk. body is thin. appearnce is dark amber. some maple syrup in nose. very low carbonation, thin mouthfeel. aroma does not translate to flavor very well. ABV is too low and it shows, this is a frail beer with big dreams.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Delray Beach. Not the best amber I have ever had. Goldish color with aromas that aren’t special or unique. Flavor is mild and smooth,but not spectacular.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 15, 2009 Dark amber with relatively thick white head, served in plastic glass. Nose is bland with diacetyl. Mild sweet caramel malt flavors. When it warms grows nuttier and some licorice emerges. Good carbonation level.
Re-Rate from sample @ brewery taproom Bright coppery-gold with hardly any head. Intensely sweet, American Belgian-style strong ale with peaches, pineapple, banana, and good yeast esters. Soft, low carbonation. Super sweet and super fruity. Not my thing but there is something fun about it. Like pie filling: apple, plum, banana.
