Bob had this in his fridge. I almost paid big bucks for a bomber at one point so this was a nice find. Dark amber, a bit hazy. Spicy, yeasty nose, very interesting and good. Hefty full palate. Ry and spice is there, the sour balances this as I don’t detect much going on in the hops department. Very interesting and good. Dry finish.

Bottle at Monk’s Kettle. Pour is hazy amber with a huge white head and great lazing - super thick. Biscuity, straw, light rye, grassy, a touch of spice, herbal, citrusy, and light peppery aroma. Taste is biscuity, fruity, straw, grassy - very easy drinking and sessionable - light pears, herbal, and tangy. Medium body with soft carbonation. Easy drinking.

12oz. bottle. Pleasantly complex aroma, lightly sweet and fruity with notes of golden apple, pear, melon, citrus, honey, light caramel, and a heavy dosage of spicy, peppery, doughy yeast, some hints of clove and banana here as well. Hazy light-medium orange amber color, with a foamy, lasting, large-bubbled head of white and plenty of thick lacing to boot. Flavor profile is gently sweet, fruity and spicy, with suggestions of lemon and spice from the rye, with a tropical fruit blend, estery yeast, faint caramel and touches of bready, grainy malts and faint herbal hop tones appearing late. Bitterness is fairly minimal. Highly effervescent, light and smooth on the palate, no doubt courtesy of the oats, with a medium body. Maybe just another generic Belgian-style ale from this brewer, but a well executed and tasty one.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours deep amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of caramel and pale malts, some spicy rye notes, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with a nice amount of hops and malts for a good balance. Average texture. Not a bad beer.

It poured an orange/amber color with a white head. The aroma was light maltiness with some yeasty spice. The taste was bready with a little rye and some grainy hints of tropical fruit and spice. Good stuff.

Another great showing from this brewery. Medium lasting head. Good lacing. Sweet. Alcohol taste but still very drinkable. Right amount of floral notes.
