Bottle, dark brown, smell is sweet sugar and belgian yeast smells, taste is lots of dark fruits, I get some grapes, up front, some raisons, on dates and figs in there as well, lots going on, lots of sugars in there, a nice offering but not my favorite.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This ale poured a deep amber colour with a big, fat light tan head. Scents include ripe fruit, coriander spice, cloves and light malt. First swig was quite carbonated with a very fizzy mouthfeel and flavours of cloves, coriander malt and wheat. Remindes me of a more malty version of a wheat beer. Finish is malty with a lingering clove/coriander flavor.

Bottle from brewery. Pours clear dark brown with an enormous ever-growing head. Funky yeast aroma. Light Belgian spicy yeast in the taste, with plenty of sticky-sweet caramalts. A little vanilla too. Enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle given as a gift for watching the dogs...much better then money! Hazy brown with a beige head. Fruity malt, also a bit metallic although that mostly fades as the bottle airs out, some yeast, bit of a tang, grains, some caramel. Mild+ carbonation, moderate body, sweet with a bit of a tang, slight bitterness as it dries out on the palate, more malt and grain on the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle [750ml] at Indie Alehouse shared with jercraigs & mabel, Sep.19. Pours dark brown with a small semi-lasting frothy beige head. Aroma of tangy fruit, some light "metal" and caramel malt. Flavour is malty, tangy again, and with sweet malt and fruit. Average to medium bodied. Not a big fan of the style, I found this just good, not great.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
750ml bottle - dark muddy brown color with a puffy 2 finger cap. Aroma is very nice - like a musty pear cider, Medium body, sick mouth feel and a fruity character. Flavor is big and earthy with sweetish malts meeting succulent fruits in the front then good balance as hops show up mid palate, finish goes a bit dry and bitter. Very decent sipping ale for summer….I think this ale will cellar but is best when fresh.
