Growler filled at the Publick House and consumed later the same day. Pours a nearly clear amber with a moderate yellow-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left ample lace. Pleasant spicy aroma with some malt present in the nose as well. The flavor is spicy Belgian yeast with some malt. Dries out as it approaches the finish, where some cracker and black pepper emerge. The black pepper lingers at the back of throat well into the aftertaste. Medium bodied.

On tap at Southampton...Murky, orange body with barely a head, even though it was straight from the tap. It has a very pungent and yeasty nose, not as spicy as I wanted it to be. Also it was surprisingly uncomplex in general, with no qualtiies I look for in a Belgian beer. The flavor is malty, and sour. The tartness really stands out. What is this beer? I’m not so fond of it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at the publick house - very hazy, moslty golden (amber?) out of the tap - very musty, earthy aroma, with hints of lemon, a tiny bit of spice and belgian sugar - a bit spicy up front, followed in the middle by an unexpected tartness/sourness that I’m not entirely sure the brewer intended - a bit of thin malts come on the back end of that, along with light orange flavor - the unwelcome tartness never completely goes away though - is it possible that this beer was infected?

gee Joe, i kind of liked this one. Well its better this way, we can keep that record of having almost exactly opposite tastes. Poured into a pint, color is orang-amber with a small but stable head. Aroma is present - beglain fruitiness and fruit sweetness. Taste is more spiced - allspice, nutmeg, cinamon. Leaves a fruity belgian aftertaste.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at the Publick House. Hazy amber colour with an initially lovely spicy aroma of clove, allspice and cinnamon with banana and peach fruitiness over the back. Flavour though is like sucking on old bandaids. Incredibly phenolic and sulfurous with plasticy notes as well. Light caramel malt that probably would have worked if the yeast hadn’t gone crazy. It started out okay, but this one got away from them.
