I really liked this beer. The barrel aging was very apparent in the aroma. The flavor was very fruity and almost tangy. I don’t think this is properly listed in the IPA’s. very little IPA character. A bit sweet almost. Nice unique beer.

Hard to sort out. Aroma is heavy artificial banana, like cheap candy. Flavor has some dark sugar, a little funk, sweet. Some candied orange peel in there. Honestly not sure what they are going for.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Copper with creamy, off-white head, good lacing / Bright nose of candied citrus, soap, burnt sugar, perfume / Light to medium body, a hint thin, soft carbonation, moderately sweet with good bitterness / Flavors of turning orange rind, lemon, pine, soap, burnt sugar / Light and gentle, interesting, but no Belgian character that I can detect. Might have to try this again.

Draft at Cork n Bottle a few weeks back. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small white head that collapses to a thin film. The aroma was lighter, but had citrus, yeast, wine barrel notes and sweet malts. The flavor did show the Cali-Belgique character with definite barrel notes; sweet malts, yeast, citrus, tart wine notes, wood with mild plus bitterness to the finish.
