Pours a hazy orange color with a finger of white head. Interesting nose. Very spicy and fruity. Banana, citrus peel, floral hops, and lots of sweet bread. Tons of lemon peel, too. The flavor is sweet and heavy on the rye. Lots of spicy and citrus peel hops, some floral hops, and a mild bitterness. A hint of grass, very creamy mouthfeel and flavor, and some orange.

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger fizzy/creamy off-white head. Aroma (through all that head) is lightly spicy. Might be from rye. Full bodied. Foamy carbonation. The flavor is very Belgian. Definitely earthy with rye. Dry, almost astringent. Hop is decent - but whether itís rye bitter or hop bitter? Very, very tasty.

Clear golden, with a fluffy white head. Clovey yeasty light fruity aroma with some sweet earthy tones. Smooth up front yeasty fruitiness with some tasty banana and wheat, with a dry subtle finish. Not bad, but not really up my alley.

Draft poured into a goblet. Pours a dark orange with some dark white head. Aroma of grains, a little citrus and some spices. Taste is about the same. I really donít get any rye whatsoever. Overall, good but not great. I would drink it again, but I wouldnít seek it out.

On tap at Dinosaur BBQ. Pours clear darker orange with a white head. Aromas of toasted malts, caramel, bread, grassy hops, and light citrus. Flavors of grain, rye, grassy hops, little Belgian yeast and spice. Nice drinkable ale.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4547) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Sampled on draft at Dís Monroeville this beer poured a dark caramel-orange color with a medium sized foamy off white head that left good lacing. The aroma was soapy and herbs - mint, rosemary and sage. The flavor was dry and herbal with notes of rosemary, thyme and sage and touches of mint and anise. There was an undertone of grass and orange. Long dry mixed herb finish. Medium body. Disappointing.
