Draft. Sweet fruity caramel, funky Belgian yeast aroma. Clear copper with a small off-white head. Musty Belgian yeast, banana, caramel, musty orange and spice flavor. Medium body, soft carbonation.

Pint at Doyle’s. Pours dark amber with a tall white head. Aroma is citrusy and grassy, moreso than expected, but not crazy. Esters give it a banana and clove kick. The flavor packs plenty of yeast fruitiness with a zesty hop presence over it. Not over the top, but genuine and clean. Solid beer.

A - Pours a clear orange copper with a creamy eggshell head. Below average head retention.
S - Yeasty, spicy medicinal phenolics, citrus hops, cloves, banana, bubblegum, sweet malt.
T - Spicy yeast, peppery bitterness, bubblegum, pine and herbal hops coat the tongue. Tangy oranges, hints of lemon, earthy wood, the malt has a light candy-like sweetness to it. Finishes herbal and spicy with clove on the aftertaste.
M - Medium body, medium carbonation,
This one doesn’t hold back on the spices. Good Belgian yeast strain provides lots of character. Nice mix of hops as well. A nice addition to the lineup.

Draft, poured a clear amber with off white head. Medium body, strong malts with nice hop kick, more of an east coast IPA. Not a big fan of Belgian style in general but this was pretty good, think the additional hops made it.

Deep reddish amber color with a little white head. Aroma has a lot of woodtones. It tastes like redman snuff from the nineties" in other words, sweet and sticky tobacco. Finish has some wild yeast notes along with the occasional metallic note.

Sampled at Jungle Jim’s Fairfield. This had a really nice Belgian slant to it. The IPA and hop notes are definitely there but it did not overpower the Belgian yeast and sweeter notes. Tasty.
