Both of the brewery’s in this adventure are great and maybe I just wanted to much,but I was a little let down. All the basics are here aroma good,appearance great but at 9.5 abv you think you are going to get a big and complex beer and I was bored with it. Easy drinker and I would drink again but with less expectation.

This one is a doozy. It is big and alcoholic, sweet w/ tons of fruity yeast character. Though, it’s a really big beer, it lends itself to slow sipping and as such does not really come across as too much--though it’s damn close. There seems to be a touch of tartness and earthy bitterness in the finish which keeps the sweetness from cloying and the fruity character works well w/ it’s thick, juicy texture. This is honestly not something I’d drink regularly but it will definitely scratch that big Belgian itch for anyone who gets it.

Clear mellow gold with an ample white head. Coriander, light banana, some honey. Hint of raisins. Lightly bitter, plenty of sweetness. Alcohol is quite upfront, strong. Long finish, quite oily, lighter body. Very good.

bottle @ Jungle Jims / Cincinnati OH --- Aroma of wheat and coriander. Nearly clear light amber color, persistent fluffy white head curtain of lace. Taste is malt and wheat that adds banana and spice as it moves through a crisply carbonated swallow. Minimal hops are needed to balance this big ale. Alcohol warmth is not here, but I feel the big alcohol push as I drink it. It actually would be better with a lower abv.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Beautiful amber with a large, slightly off-white long lasting head that leaves lots of lacing. Medium body, lively carbonation. This beer is better than average because of its finish which is spicy, fruity, slightly sweet but wonderfully balanced.
