2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle... really dark orange, a bit of amber, light tan head is gone right away... strange and off putting aroma, confusing, candy vokda, very alcohol, sharp, saison characteristics come through on the back, musky jolly rancher saison... taste is equally strange, just borderline terrible, a dubbel and saison do not mix... pass

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, cloudy, a little rusty, large beige head, foamy, somewhat sticky lacing.
Reminds me of an aged Dubbel, yet a little lighter.   Very musty, basement like, with notes of figs and dates.
Had you given me a glass of this and not said what it was, I would think produced in Belgium.   Semi-sweet
sticky malts up front, a little prickly with the carbonation, slight caramel and pale citrus peel.   otherwise we
are talking figs, dates, and some minor prune.   A little bready, albeit moreso spritzy.   Better than I
expected.   There is a little alcohol there, but it doesn’t burn.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.
Feels a little airy/bubbley, which makes me think this is even more authentic.   Musty basement like funk on the
finish.   Soft dark pitted fruit lingers.   It really feels like a smaller version of a Dubbel.   I
enjoyed this more than I thought I would.   Worth a try at least.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very nice fruity aroma with some Belgian spice and a little bread. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin bubbly head. The flavor has a lot of fruit along with the spices. There is also an underlying bite of wood and vanilla. Lots of things going on here. The finish is dry and crisp.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2009 bomber. Foamed over after releasing cork. Pours a hazy, reddish brown w/ a thick foamy light tan head. Aromas of yeast, cherry, caramel, molasses, pears and grape. Bright, aggressive carbonation - mouthfeel, at first, is closer to sparkling wine - but became thicker as it warmed. A lot going on flavor-wise. BY turns sweet and fruity and then tart - cherry, lemon and raspberry. Belgian yeast comes through, and a slight boozey note, malts and something like apple cider that has turned. Overall, it’s oddly enjoyable and I’d certainly try it again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Max’s in Baltimore. First thing I got off the aroma was nail polish remover and soy sauce so I was prepared to be disappointed. Beer improved on the flavor side of things though. Some malt and cherry notes maybe? Soy sauce was still there but not terrible. Kind of funky all around but not in a bad way. I’d try it again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange. Belgian candy sugar meets old socks and vinegary wine sting. Flavor follows more socks. Really wild but i kind of dig.
