From draft. Bright orange color with nice head. Aroma is faint spice, dust, yeast. Flavor is kind of complex. Light and smooth but just enough funkiness to make it interesting. Some unfamiliar flavors in here that are difficult to describe. Very drinkable.

Surprised by the low ratings. This is solid. Very nice. A little light on the yeast, but has a pleasant sweetness, and very quaffable. I like it.

Growler thanks to me. Deep amber with a thick cream colored head. Nose is yeast, dried fruits, honey, dough, and sweet. Excellent thickness, flavor is caramel, dough, yeast, light florals, and dried fruits. Great creamy finish.

it appears I like this much more than anyone else?? can to glass; can had been in cabinet for a few months; new style for me - what’s not to like here?? Sweet malty aroma with some toffe. orange amber cloudy hazy pour. Taste is well balanced and ends with slight spices and dry. Style says best aged; six pack purchase coming!!

Can poured at Brewvival 2012. Pours a hazy orange color with a thin frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, stone fruits, coconut, berries and caramel. The taste is toasted malts, citrus, stone fruits and caramel. Medium bodied.

Patrickctenchi (3646) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2013
Can: Cloudy brown amber....small tan head. Aroma is caramel/ toffee....tangy... Taste is the same with a bit of spice and peppering. Different, and not too bad at all..enjoyed it.

SPDickerman (954) - Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Pours brown, like the color of iced tea, with a small off-tan fizz. Smells mildly fruity with a strong caramel, toffee malt base. Taste is less than the aroma, hints of fruit and toffee, but tastes a little off. Medium-bodied with a slick texture and decent mouth-carbonation, Southern Star Le Mort Vivant finishes with a cloying, herbal sort of aftertaste.

Amber or dark orange. Nice head. Aroma of caramel and citrus - some honey. Taste is light, a bit of honey along with a clean finish.

seymour (1435) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Tasted from 12 oz can into tulip. Thanks Dak, I never expected to drink a nice Texan Bière de Garde in a can, cool! Poured a beautiful, mostly clear, excellent off-white foam and lace. Very pleasing aromas of caramel malt, flowery hops, subdued Belgian-type yeast esters/phenols, perfumey alcohol. Rich malt sweetness, caramel, toffee, apricots. Had a unique palate: creamy and buttery, light body but sticky-sweet mouthfeel, low carbonation, with a lingering tangy aftertaste. Very well-crafted and tasty.
