3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750 ml. bottle- Pours hazy orange with a one finger white head. The aroma is yeasty, pepper spice, citrusy, clean cut grass. The taste is wheaty, yeasty, citrusy, the hops are there, more so than your average Belgian Strong Ale, kind of a dry yet sweet cantaloupe hop taste, the malt is sweet and light. It has that quintessential Belgian taste, with dry hopping! Body is medium and sticky, carbonation is high and bubbly. Overall this was good, I enjoyed it.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
