Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a note of earthy grains with an underlying note of a bit of rye and smoke. Flavor has a bit of a rye and a hint of smoke backed mostly by earthy grains that have a bit of sweetness to them.

Draft at Mekong. Medium hazy copper, decent head. Aroma is faintly grainy, hint of spice. Flavor is caramel accented grains, light citrus, and an undefined, mildly Belgian spice flavor, presumably from whatever yeast strain was used. Nice, but rather unremarkable. A touch sweet.

Just fine for an amber, but nothing I am going to seek out again. Pretty middle of the road.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy carrot-orange. The head is mega-puffy, but that might be a pourer’s error. (Don’t judge.) Sticky gobs of lace. Looks quite excellent actually.
Aroma is some light Belgian funk, but with some spicy malts that are similar to rye. Touch of lemongrass and orange peel.
Major malt funk on the front of the tongue, and in the back, a heavy dose of rye malts. Peppery and spicy. The citrus (orange rind, lemon) and grassy flavors are a nice balance.
Feels slick and smooth. A little chunky but not a choker. Somewhat akin to Ommegang’s BPA, but with a grittier grain bill. A little overpriced for a 4-pack but a very nice pint.

On tap, slightly hazy amber/yellow pour with small off white head. Aroma of malts, yeast, bready and earthy undertones. Taste of malt, yeast, peppery spice and a definate rye presence. Slightly dry finish, pretty good beer, interesting.
