(Draft @ Union Brewhouse, server described it as a Belgian) Served in a shaker. Medium-dark amber, a bit hazy. Very thin off-white head. Aroma of light spice, banana, clove. Medium-textured. No real lacing. Medium bitterness overlays a somewhat fruity and lightly spicey base. A little bitter and yeasty in the finish. Meh.

on tap @ GIBF, one of the only ones here that I wanted to taste, nice ASA, should open up this brewery to the rest of the world more. Nice spice hop character and taste, not overbearing.

Bottle. Dark copper color, cloudy. Nice Off white head, little if any lacing but small foam lingers throughout. Some floaters and sediment, in cold storage for about 6 months but did not mar the taste. Aroma of caramel-hops. Malty yeast and hops pallet with a dry caramel bitter sweet flavor, no lingering bitter after taste. Good all around flavor and full body. Like to find this again.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2007 12oz bottle, with no obvious freshness date - just an obscure code. Pours a surprisingly rich dark copper that I wasn’t expecting. Floaty chunks could be seen in the bottle before opening, but not once poured. Aroma is spicy and rather nice, but not particularly hoppy. Initial taste is crisp and sparkly from carbonation, that quickly blends into a nicely rich full taste. There’s a nice little bit of spiciness to the taste that is nicely balanced with the hops, along with some fruitiness. I am very pleasantly surprised by the quality of this beer. I thought that this was like an IPA, but I got something quite different and pleasing instead. I wish more were made like this. This was delicious.

Sugary. The flavor is sweet with old fruits, brown sugar and light hops. Medium to full body. Soft carbonation.

Bottle in trade. Christ ,I thought that this was an IPA. A very hoppy flavor with some sweetness as an aftertaste but overall a tasty brew.
