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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.
