Rapscallion Premier is a deep golden Belgian-inspired ale. The flavor is a mixture of sweetness with some fruity undertones, spiciness, and a light, underlying bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2004 2004 bottle (Parrish Cafe Boston). Pours a thick looking, moderately wavy/glucose-like yellowish/pale gold with some lighter oranges in there. Little to no head. Served in its own glass. Aroma has hints of candied yellow apples, sweet honey, light peach and nectarine notes and just tons of sugar. True to the aroma, this one is significantly sweet. After trying a bunch of peppery strong goldens, it’s a nice change, but quickly proves to be too much malt. The yeast is light but noticeably belgian. Good zing from the hops half way through, which dont seem to be out of style and then the finish which is floral, lightly sweet and very clean and surprisingly quick. Decent beer, too much fruity/sugary sweetness though, and gets a bit too thin on the end.

The nose is very fruity with notes of clove, cinnamon, and iron. The palate is full, fruity, yeasty, and very complex. Unfortunately, the palate is a little sweet; if the sugar were a bit a lower I would really like this beer. The flavors on the finish are typically Belgian in character. This beer is classified as an American Strong which it is not. This beer tastes like an Abbey Single.

OldGrowth (3270) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - JUL 20, 2004
Bottle, from Julio’s. Good nose Clove, banana come to mind. Hazy yellowy orange color. Sediment slowly spread through beer like some kind of ghost. Bitter sweet spicy flavors. Clove, banana, grapefruit, honey, sugar all in there. Lite creamy body. Bitter finish. Sorta tasty, bitte Belgian. Couldn’t read date on bottle as it had smudged during printing. Makes me wish I had bought it when they had the 4 pack with glass.

Pour is dark goldent with a big white head. Scent is citrus and spice, while the taste is that as well. Slight hop aftertaste. A different offering.

tiggmtl (4544) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2004
Tangerine, orange, yeasty-sour aromas. Deep golden coloured with white head that recedes to cover. Short-lived flavour - orange, malt. Long sweet after-taste. Decent malt body - medium. Somewhat still feeling despite high carbonation. Bottl (sampled at Mondial 2004).
