COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character. Next, a deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 75), what, Carapils and roasted barley malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops. It’s a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

Silphium (3167) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Draft at the brewpub, Traverse City. Amber body, hazy, with a medium, dense, pillowy off-white head. Light caramely, sweet nose with residual sugars. Light, fruity body, reminding me a tad of a watered-down Kool-Aid packet (tropical fruit juice, perhaps), also with toasted cereals and light grassy hops; light bitter finish. OK, soft, quaffable.

ADesenberg (592) - Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Bottle: pours amber with a light tan head. Sweet, malty aroma, maybe some fruit in there. It’s flavor is super sweet, but just a touch of bitter in the back if my mouth. It’s tasty, but a bit on the sweet side for me.

North peak is jolly pumpkin’s not so belgian creation. a much better job than those crackhead concoctions they call beer.

milewide (1511) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2012
12 oz. bottle. A "malt bomb" as expected. Clear amber color with average head. Lots of body for 5%! Sweet malt aroma and taste, but cut with hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I intend to buy this again.
