3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Canal’s Hainesport. Poured a very clear deep amber body with a larger bubbly off white head that leaves spotty lace and pools of foam on the edges. Aroma is odd with lots going on, initial burst is sour wet bread followed by a hint of butter followed buy nut shells, earth some rye spiceness and butter toasted wheat bread along with Belgian yeast. Thin watery body with very strong carbonation that almost stings your throat. Falvor is much like the aroma with lots of grain notes all accented with a touch of butter and some belgian yeast. Odd but good in a weird way.

Bottle to taster. Looks decent; orange with lots of off-white head and carbonation. Smells solid; bitter hops. Tastes like it smells with a spicy Belgian undertone that’s good on the palate. Not bad.

Ummm... Is this different then Rare Vos. Had then one after another and they are basically the same exact beer. Light yeast spicyness with maybe a slightly more complex malt bill with added nuttyness/leafyness. Pretty average and fine.

Enjoyed via a bottle from Ray’s. Pours a medium brown with a tall white head that clings to the glass. Smells of wheat and clove. Tastes of wheat, clove and orange with a very dry, somewhat bitter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours to a deep chestnut colored body with a super tall lasting foamy off-white head that looked like a Jolly Pumpkin Bam Biere when poured. A sexy lacing to boot. The aroma is heavy on the grains. I’d say it’s pretty wheaty with oats and Belgian yeasts like a light banana and pineapple. The flavor is very malty. The rye is first and foremost in the flavor. Some earthy spiced malts and yeasts. Subtle banana. The palate is spicy. Very creamy. I don’t know why they call this an amber ale... Unfortunately, the spicyness on the palate makes it a little harder to drink.

Nice cloudy golden body and crazy big SUDS. THE AROMA reminds me of a Belgium beer ( WTF is wrongwiththespace bar when using beer buddy???) very light on the palate but it has a bit of a bite. The barley, oat, etc is very powerful in the taste.

(bottle) My seasonal choice in quest for the cup. Complex & woodsy aroma. Nice amber complexion with fluffy white head and long-lasting lacing. Flavors include clove, apple, orange & coriander along with multi-grains commercially described. Sticky finish. Very smooth palate. Well suited for the season.
