3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On Tap City Beer SF: Pours a deep deep red with little head. Aroma is a bit light for the style. I find bready yeast notes which seems odd for the style with some raisin, some spice. Taste is this same sort of bready spice combo perhaps it’s all of the euro hops throwing off the style but most of the belgian yeast flavors seem lost in here. Palate is average, I like a bit more dryness and perk on the tongue. Overall this is a decent beer but not really worth seeking out. A bit disappointing considering all I’d heard about this brewery.

Draft at The Rare Barrel. Pours a cloudy deep amber with an off-white head that settles into a ring and leaves spots and streaks of lace. Notes of banana, caramel, nuts, brown sugar, toast, figs, and mild spices. Belgian yeasty esters lead the way here. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet mouthfeel. Good. Decent change of pace at The Rare Barrel.
