Great taste, color aroma. The furst drink I thought "oh ya", then the overwhelming 10% abv came bursting through. Either I am not quite ready to break the 8-9% abv barrier or I just like my beer to not taste like hard alcohol. I think its the latter.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium-bodied ale with a mix of flavors. Some orange and grape, which both faded as the beer warmed. A very slight metallic twinge, and then a more solid malty farm ale flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Dexters in Madison, pours a clear dark golden red with a thin soapy head, the aroma was extremely sweet with a ton of fruit, the flavor has a fruity finish that does not hide the 10% very well at all, very boozy finish, oily mouthfeel, really didnít like this one all that much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a thick caramel brown with a very tiny head that fades away quickly. Aroma is pear juice, honey, and thick sweet malt. The taste is much of the same, pear juice, sticky sweet malts, and a slight funk from the belgian yeast. Interesting but a little too sweet for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bomber poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy dark orange with not quite a half finger of white head. Aroma of sour yeast, citrus fruits, green apple and bready malt. Taste is similar. Light sweet with a hint of yeasty spice and some sour green apple. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink this again any time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home with Greg. Poured a hazy orange, with a frothy off-white head. Smells of yeast, malt, bread, dough, coriander, and light banana, with a hint of alcohol burn. Taste is bread, dough, some yeast, a little bit of spice through the middle and I am picking up some raisins as it begins to warm, with a light alcoholic burn on the finish. Not overly sweet and the alcohol helps balance it out. Sticky mouthfeel and lively carbonation. A nice interpretation of a Belgian ale, and underrated IMHO.
