3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Blind Pig in Champaign, served in a shaker pint.
A: Pours a dark amber color with a foamy white head forming on the pour. It recedes slowly to a thin film leaving sticky sheets of lace behind.
S: Light yeasty components with a touch of chalk. Some fruity esters and a little grassy hops as well. Some oaty pale malts on the nose as well.
T: Pretty much like the nose with more of a dry yeast flavor and less of the malts from the nose. Same fruity esters and light grassy hops.
M: Medium to light bodied with a medium carbonation level. Dry finish.
O: This was OK. It was anything spectacular and pretty straight forward.
Serving type: on-tap

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber with a bubbly 1" off-white head, cobwebs of lace. Solid, robust aroma of grain. Taste is a marvelous combination of grains, caramel, and dry earth that become more bitter as they float smoothly through the palate to a lingering sweet and bitter finish. A truly remarkable brew - highly recommended.
