Cloudy yellow, generous head. Sweet malt and Belgian yeast on the nose. Bitter/sweet tug of war on the tongue. Orange, vanilla,soft grains(oats?) and alcohol through the middle. Alcohol on the way out predominates, backed by numerous hops.

Herbal smell, vegetable, spices. Dark pour with marbling. Salty, spicy, peppery taste with a bitter after. Not a fan.

12oz bottle----> snifter, Pours blackish orange with a small tan head with a little lacing. Heavy spice aroma with licorice and menthol. Taste is very roasty with a good mix of spices. Palate is a bit dry and well carbonated. Can’t put my finger on the spices, but I really like this beer. Good holiday beer.

From a tap at the brewery, Belgian sugar taste, medium body, brown in color, a hoppy belgian ale?

On tap at the Knick. Initial aroma is Campho-phenique and cat urine. Big phenols, esters here. Spicy herbal and woody notes. Funky. Dark black opaque with foamy thin light tan head. Medium-heavy body with fairly heavy carbonation. Starts with roasted and chocolate malt notes, bitter chocolate, and Brett-funky bitterness. Light hop notes with medium-heavy bitter finish. Carbonic tang with rubber phenol and Band-Aid. Interesting tastes here.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle $13. Nice orange color, decent head and a hoppy aroma. Citrus wafts up as well as a distinct spiciness. The flavor was more hops, citrus, and spices and well done I might say. I could not help but think this was distinctly influenced by Green Flash as it reminded me a bot of their tripel and le freak.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ The Trappist, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours a slightly cloudy, bright yellow colour with a white head. Aroma of really strong spices, nutmeg and rosebud, not much else. Flavour of strong spices, rosebud, yeast, lemon zest, grass and weak maltiness. Medium bodied, thin mouthfeel and a warming spicy finish. Way too spicy as it runs over pretty much everything.
