Reddish pour from a cool ass can! Aroma of figs, dats, belgian yeast, sugar, honey, spice. Flavor is sweet and very nice. I really dig the yeast, dates, figs, raisins, caramel notes of the beer. Nice stuff.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very good composite yellow-cream head, fast goen over very carbonated, clear red-chestnut beer. Estery, hot-aromatic nose; rainwater small. Grapes or raisins, bit sweet. Thin, and yet bit cloying, somewhat caramel-estery flavour. Some citrus notes, not hoppy. Marzipan-retronasal. Not really well-bodied, thinnish finish. Not undeserving, but it is equally bit lame. Good point: very drinkable for an 8 % beer.

On tap at Haymarket. Pours a clear deep amber red with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has some light flora notes with backing sweet grain and a bit of Belgian yeast/spices. Flavor begins with sweet grains and caramel but is joined by sweet grains, flora, Belgian spices and yeast. A bit muddled.

Can to oversized snifter (thanks jmborggren). Looks good; dark with nice head. Smells pretty good too; quad-like. Tastes pretty good; figs and spices. Mouthfeel is decent. This is a very solid collab.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Sun King Takeover (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich copper hue, good glow, rich haze, darker elements with a frothy bubbly tannish head atop. Laces well, sticks as a small layer. Aromas are gentle pear, apple, carmelized malts. Gentle biscuits, Belgian yeast element, and dry earthy hops. Initial is a good jhab of yeasty apple cider, gentle bready malts, mellow bread, and apple rich cidery sweetness. Cidery spice, dryness peeks in. Spicy and mellow fruity middle catches it’s stride, offering some mellow life and spice. Backend offers tangy apple, gentle spice, richer cidery feel. Really weird for me, with the Belgian element getting too sweet and into the tangy tart cidery realm. Ok.

@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber, with a fruity malty aroma, with some nice raisin and toffee tones under some yeasty peach esters. Flavor was yeasty and toasty with weird tones of raisin and Belgian cereal malts. Like it was a Belgian lager or something, with all that bready biscuity yeastiness.
