3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Triple Digitís 1st anniversary party. Clear amber color. Little white head. Good big rum-gin barrel component. Big rum-spice wood, some banana in the nose. Decent lace. Bigger body. Light carbonation, some Belgian yeast funk from the golden base still there behind the big barrel. Sweet taste, spice, some alcohol warmth. Impressive barrel-aged beer. Huge rum-gin barrel influence. Probably the biggest gin-influence from any beer Iíve ever had, which regardless of how you feel about gin... is at least interesting. Bit of a boozy bite, but the rum-gin complements the belgian golden well. Nice one to savor.

Draft to taster at Listermann. Looks good; a semi-transparent golden orange with foamy off-white head that dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; sweet with Belgium yeast notes and nice barrel notes of both gin and rum. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Excellent stuff!
