Kind of a puzzle. Deep malts yet really carbonated. Lots of rough rye but creamy head and aromas. Awfully complex and compelling but really like a bag of grain. Belgian label, American born. This is a contradiction beer, for sure, but it has all the aggressive hallmarks of an earthy rustic American ale. For that, I commend it. As a Belgian, however, it is rough-hewn and unfinished. It lacks the special yeast that would have made this beer delicate.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: this beer takes a while to pour down because the head is huge, dark beige head, the beer is a hazy darker gold to bronze color, head topples over the edge of the rim of the glass
Aroma: banana, yeast, maple syrup, light spice, lemon
Taste: sweet, maple sugar, butter, very tiny hop bitterness on the finish,
Palate: soft carbonation, medium mouthfeel, bitter sweet aftertaste
Overall: I'm not usually a fan of this sweet of a beer but I really like it, would be even better in the winter in my opinion, very nice sweet almost smoky sugar flavor, looks amazing too

On tap. Served a hazy copper color with a decent head. Aroma of grain, malt, with a hint of hops. Taste of fresh grain and some malt sweetness. Nice bitterness and clean finish. Moderate body, nice blend of grain with a good earthy feel. Enjoyable beer.

This is a great and somewhat unique beer. Big head and all the grains work together to make a slightly sweet but savory beer.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy more brown than yellow with an off white head that is big bubble that lingers and leaves lacing. The nose is spicy malt. The taste is caramel malt with a layer of spice. Bitter aftertaste that lingers. Another prize from Ommegang!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap, hazy orange-amber pour with white head, aroma brought notes of earth, red fruit, some spice, rye notes into a hint of lemon, touch of toasted bread, caramel into a hint of vanilla. Taste was a mix of vanilla, grass, bread into some toast, red fruit, dough, some slight rye comes through, finishing sweet and dry.

Draft at Barrel Republic. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes fruity, malty, like light herb, citrus hops, and rich oat. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like citrus, fruity, malty, oats,

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very hazy dark orange/brown color with a great head retention. Aroma is hop, rye, biscuit, spice, caramel, fruit, citrus. Taste is malty, rye, biscuit, hops, spice, and caramel with less sweetness than the nose carried. Awesome beer, definitely grain-centric like they were aiming for, love the rye throughout adding spice.
