nice champagne type mouthfeel with the accompanying vibrant bubbles that are amped up a bit, normal for a beer. nice coriander and banana type spice with a good lingering woody and fresh malt finish and some clove. some hop in the mix the brew is just a bit sweet and slick enough to add substance to the lightish body.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/8/12
Aroma: The aroma has some Belgian yeast, spice, bread, a little rye, some earth, and some herbs
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear orange color with a inch of fizzy off-white head that leaves streaky lace
Flavor: The taste is lightly sweet, pretty grainy, with some plus spice, fruity notes, and a slightly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium (leaning light), it has a spicy, tingly feel to it, and a somewhat dry, spicy finish
This is a pretty interesting beer with some nice complexity. As I’m listing the components that I noticed, I’m sitting here thinking about how many other components there are to this beer. I probably missed quite a few, but I pointed out the ones that were clear to me. Quite interesting, well worth trying, and the type of beer where’d you probably find something different every time you try it. I may be a bit too high on the score, but I just found myself enjoying it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Floral notes and grains greet the nose. Pours a beautiful orangish copper with an aggressive, but mostly diminishing tan head and moderate lacing. Taste is, to me, hop forward - piney. There is also a hint of spice, rye, and a nice bready aftertaste. A somewhat dry finish. Medium-light bodied with appropriate carbonation. Overall, a pleasing beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours sort of murky brown with a huge tan head that takes awhile to fade. Aroma is floral earthy hops, rye, light caramel malt. Taste is pretty damn good,a bit fruity, some pear and apple hints, spice from the rye, a nice little hop bite, the hops are earthy, and this brew has a bit of a buttery and creamy finish.
