COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber hued ale takes it’s inspiration from Germany while still nodding to the Belgian farmhouse tradition. The base is comprised of German two-row, wheat, Cara-Munich, and roasted barley. Generously hopped with a blend of Perle, Spalt, and Hallertau Mittelfrüh and fermented with a rustic Belgian farmhouse ale yeast. These elements together provide a melange of earth and fruit aromas backed with hints of caramel with a dry clean finish.

McNeillR (1207) - SCOTLAND - SEP 5, 2014
Clear dark Cola brown. Broken up whiteish head. Nose is cherry and wet leaves so seasonal. Gummy peppery vibe. Earthy and Soily, clean nuttiness through and though. Carbonation was neat and uncompromising. Decent rustic bitterness. Earthy and farmyard linger - does well within what it said on the tin.

EithCubes (4885) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 3, 2014
Bottle. Excellent nose is spicy and earthy with jam, strong orange peel, and strong phenolic character, some wheat. Pours hazy dirty brown with amber highlights and strong carbonation, sudsy and noisy tan head. Taste is earthy and lightly chocolaty, some roast and even scorched character way toward the back, gummy maltiness with light wood, much more spice. Earthy hops, Weizen character, very faint mint. Light bitterness and semi-sweet, not really tart. Soft yet crisp medium-full body. Refreshing and rustic, indeed, no big alcohol at all. Very pleasant blend of flavors, has sort of a "lagered Dunkelweizen" profile.

mds (2207) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2014
Bottle from Premier Gourmet in Buffalo.
I didn’t really expect a Belgian Dubbel-esque beer. Pour is brown with a white sudsy head. Smells of candy sweetness, bread and caramel. Taste is somewhat sweet with a yeasty character. Moderate carbonation. Finishes spicy. 2014-07-18

harrymel (1502) - Spokane, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Bottled back in 2013 Autumn I assume. Pours dark amber with a solid quilt of light tans. Smells of sweet malts, some mango, some caramel and belgian yeast with a bit of cola in the back. Flavor is malty with more cola and some prune and slight bitterness over plenty of sweet tea and belgian yeast. Medium bodied with a moderately reserved carbonation. Cool.

nearbeer (3711) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 5, 2014
12 oz. bottled 06/26/13. Reddish copper with a huge foam that settles into a lasting disc. Scents of toasted nut, plum, toffee, and spicy dark banana bread. Taste of toffee, raisin, pecan, toast, and dry earthy spice mix - galangal, coriander seed, nutmeg. Some hints of lightly tart cherry and citrus zest. Finish has some slight wooden hop notes. Medium body is velvety smooth with a low carbonation and a nice balance. Don’t know how it was last autumn, but it aged well in the bottle for nearly a year.
