Tap @ Solana. Pours Amber orange with a thin tan ring. It has a light candied yeasty nose. Taste is a bit hoppy and slightly malty and pretty even keeled. Not a bad brew overall. Now knowing the alc content, it is well hidden.

On tap at the 10th Annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival: Pours a clear copper bronze with a large, frothy, well-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty Belgian caramel malt and peppery yeasty notes. Starts sweet, bready and toasty with some light clove and banana character toward an authentic, complex, drier finish. A well-balanced and drinkable Belgian strong ale.

On tap at PP Solana.Nice dark amber color with a moderate non dense head. Smells of belgian yeast. A little thin and carbonated on the palate. Some decent hops and maltiness without alot of complexity. Certainly not bad .

well holy good fuckin lord, i guess im the 2nd person that had the pleasure of rating this fine brew. This one was orange, and it was quite good, it had a very deep bitterness without tastin like the traditional inside of a hospital glove. lots of dark fruits made it solid on the taste.

Orangish pour with a small white head. Sweet and yeasty aromas. The flavor impressed me as many BSA’s are far too overwhelming in one way or another. This hit a nice balance though, sweet, yeasty, bananas, warm alcohol, and citrus, but none overwhelming the other. Pretty good.

Yum. Orange pour with a short bubbly white head. Bubblebum and banana in the nose are reflective of what you get in the flavor. Malt and fruitiness in the back. Initially thought this was a trippel, with the amount of bubblegum. Who cares, this is a great beer.
