3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draft at Tap 25. I was excited about liking this one because it was labeled as a biere de garde, my least favorite style. Oh well… It pours an orange color with an off white head. The aroma is floral and minty with some ginger/lime spice. Very interesting. The flavor is floral, spicy, minty with some light fruit and bread in the finish. Foresty spruce and spices in the finish. I thought I had finally tried a proper biere de garde. The search continues.

I’m not the greatest lover of Autumn beers, but this is delicious. Pours a dark gold with a sizable, lingering white head. Full mouthfeel. Malt, grain, grass, loves, biscuity malts, honey, toffee

Bottle pours hazy dark gold with rocky white foam. The aroma is musty myriad grains with a barn yard Belgian familiarity. The taste is smooth and slightly sweet with a slight pilsner barley flavor and delicious Belgian fruit flavor. Smooth grainy brew, a little strawberry and mixed apple white grape. Very drinkable with lasting carbonation and sweet sugary fruits and grain.
