Very surprised by this one. Tried as part of the hopology variety pack. Great blend of traditional Belgium and IPA styles.

I smell the sweetness of the malt and the belgian yeast. It almost smells like a candt. Its a clearish red amber color with not very muchwhite head. I taste the typical belgian flavor with an extra bitterness. There is a sweetness but is offset by a bitter lingering aftertaste. Its a mediumish bodied brew with tiny carb bubbles. For a combo beer like this i think sam did a good job. You get bitterness from the ipa but the sweetness and belgian flavor as well.

12oz bottle shared. Poured big orange color with white head. Awesome Belgian aroma with malt and hops. The flavor almost punches you in the face of Belgian and hops was very tasty. Bold flavors throughout. Overall nice job

not very wild tastes. notes of spiciness to compliment the citrusy flavors that hit the middle of the tongue first. bubbly, with hints of earthy flavors up front.

Pours amber, One finger head, very little lacing. Smells of clove, very ripe banana and funk. Taste sour fruits, licorice, earthy, sweet with a medium body. Finishes sour fruits, clove and spruce. Interesting.

On draft at Taproom No. 307 in New York City. Pours an amber complexion with fading foamy head. The aroma is Belgian yeast, spice and hop blend. The flavor citrus hops and spices. Somewhat thin.

P: Clear golden body with minimal head that settles to a bubbly wake.
S: Faint yeast, grains, pecan bread, toasted toffee malt and peaches.
T/M: Apples, peaches, powdery yeast, honey cereal grain, lemon zest, buttered beer bread and oaky alcohol. Medium crisp body with a creamy carbonation with a dry chalky finish. Finished with dry cracked nuts.
O: A decent beer but not a champion. I liked the sweet and chalky but didn’t deliver the satisfaction I expected. The alcohol was almost astringent and messed with the flavor profile.
