Draft at Apex in Portland. That’s right, Portland. Oregon. Seriously. Cloudy amber color, white edge head. Aroma of dusty sweet straw. Taste is similar.

bhensonb (14170) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 23, 2010
Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a slight white head. Med+ body. Flavor is sweetish, but there’s a lot of hop. Seems a hoppy thing. But well balanced. Whatever. It’s good.

Lubiere (12970) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 14, 2013
A golden ale with a thick lacing off white head. In aroma, a nice fruity malt with herbal notes, cream, orange pulp. In mouth, a nice sweet malt with orange peels, bananas, weizen like. Nice.

Dogbrick (11614) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a cloudy dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, bananas and clove. Medium, smooth body with flavors of fruity esters, yeast and caramel malt. The finish is fruity with a light spice and yeast aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a note of light sweet grains with a touch of light fruit and a hint of Belgian yeast. Flavor has a lot of light fruit and floral with a backbone of caramel and Belgian spice.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2006
On tap at Piece. Poured a hazy toffee/chestnut with a short-lived off-white cap... slight rising carbonation. Spicy, malty, and rustic feel to the nose... with coriander and mild rust, caramel and lemony herbs laced with alcohol... very enjoyable and intriguing. Spicy malt middle in the flavor with a mild herbal bitterness at the edges of the palate... coriander and lemon accents throughout... alcohol warmth emerged in feel and flavor as the drink warmed. Very tasty! Spicy tartness from coriander and lemongrass on the palate... a little flat across the middle... long herbal finish. Really enjoyed it!

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2013
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Chicago, IL). Pours a richer deep amber pour, well hazed with frothy offwhite head, dies to a film, laces ok and froths as a filmy layer. Aromas offer gentle sweetness, some fruity esters, gentle spice and yeastiness grows as it warms, some mellow clove, bready and doughy malts. Initial is medium bodied, a bit more full than expected. Apple, pear, doughy malt elements mix with Belgian yeasty, some spice, and deccent sweetness. Mellow spice, some dryness, a touch of girth into the middle. A touch sweet, some girthiness. Solid, a bit sweet and big for me. Meh.

BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - JUL 15, 2006
On tap and served in a snifter, way too cold once again: Displayed a hazy and unfiltered deep amber hue with a nice frothy off-white head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of apricot, wild berries, crab-apple, earthy Belgian yeast esters, candi sugar, hint of wheat, continental hops, coriander, rose hips, and a bit phenolic. The taste is that of a young Belgium Strong Ale, alcoholic and brash. Sugary and earthy with a lot of fruity notes (I get some fig and mango in the flavors) with soft notes of coriander and anise, some spice from the hops too I think. It is very wheaty on the back end and once it warmed there is a some bitterness showing. Promising if only it could age a bit. The mouth feel is sappy and sticky but is lively enough to prevent it from becoming cloy. A fair amount of alcoholic warming noticed as well. Well it is not to style (so what), I found this highly drinkable and complex.

On tap at the pub, looks like this hasn’t been brewed for awhile... The beer pours a light gold that is slightly cloudy, annoys me. A light off white head, no retention ok lace... The aroma is totally dead, I get nothing, bored out of my mind... The taste is pretty boring too, yeast, way too much alcohol, a hint of floral hops, weird sweetness right out of left field. This was by far one of my lease favorite beers of their 8 I had. Skip this.
