On tap, poured into a shaker. Sweet citrus and berries hit the nose with a light grain touch. Thereís also some bread crust and a slight funk. Sweet caramel syrup comes through as it warms up. Itís a slightly hazy, orange brown beer with a dense, foamy, off white head that retains a medium thick ring and fuzzy surface with light web lace on the glass. The taste is a medium high sweet and medium bitter. Itís a highly fizzy, slick, full bodied beer with flavors of marmalade and toast coming through. Sweet caramel apple flavors come through as it warms. The finish is crisp and dry with lots of rye. The toasted rye aftertaste lingers with some hints of orange soda too.

Bottle. Hazy dark amber color with large spongy white head, slightly doughy hops aroma, medium carbonation, somewhat astringent rye taste, long finish. Quite an interesting brew.

BillKismet (3412) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Hazy bronze with a poofy, off-white wheat chaff head. Spicy nose that seems to definitely have Belgian influence (clove), and that is also replete with wheat and Barley and rye. Quite appealing and bready. Spicy rye flavor with a fullnews made from wheat and barley. Proteinaceous, thick and lovely. Belgian phenols and esters thicken the bready accents. Almost veers into weizenbock territory. An apt reward for a successful harvest season.

Not a fan. Bottle to glass. Slight fruit and grain in aroma. Taste was a letdown. Too much hops. Too strong not blended

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation transparent light orange colored body and a fair lacing. . The crisp mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a lingering hoppy aftertaste. The nice flavor contained notes of semi-sweet mild nut mild caramel mild wheat crisp hops and bread dough. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

BOD 7/10/14. Pours a hazy medium amber with an exceptional head, lacing and retention. Nice, but light, nose of sweet malt and Belgian yeast fruit (banana) over a light spice (clove). Almost medium bodied with a nice slick mouthfeel. Superb carbonation with a nice effervescent finish. The flavor profile is a bit complex, superbly balanced and reasonably intense. It begins with an effervescent rush of sweetness - biscuit malt and fruit - that yields to a mild bitterness. As the bitterness fades, rye flavor and itís associated touch of spice come forward over a slightly phenolic note. The finish is somewhat crisp, a bit dry and the light bitterness lingers over a light sweetness with a clove phenolic note. Quite nice.

Orange amber pour. Nose of Belgian yeast, mild toasted malt, and faint rye. Flavor is mildly sweet and fruity with toasted malt and faint rye malt. Mild body boost from the oats. Pretty good.
