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.

I really enjoyed this beer and I’m a big fan of the cans. Nice hope flavor with everything in balance. Didn’t get any of the usual synthetic flavor I seem to taste from Belgian yeast.

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.

Can. Pours a somewhat hazy brown. Smells strongly of raisins and cinnamon, and tastes similar. A bit darker than I was expecting, I expected something a little lighter. Not too heavy, but not too light either.

Crazy resealable can from STfun. Fruity belgian esters with a slight spice in the finish. Pretty refreshing and easy to drink, but nothing crazy like the can implies.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a ruby color with a fleeting beige head that is almost completely gone after a few seconds. Fruity aroma with raisin and date notes. The flavor is sweet with raisin, prune, date, and grape notes. The body is light and a bit thin. A cloying sweetness coats the tongue and mouth leaving a fruity aftertaste. The carbonation is very low. The 8 % abv is well hidden. Overall it is a nice beer with good flavor and balance.

Bottle shaped can with twist-top. Brown sugar, banana, and malt aroma with a hint of alcohol. Clear amber with small head. Dry herbal malt and lightly bitter flavor. Pretty attenuated. Nice, dry BSA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aluminum twist-top bottle.
Deep, clear amber, with a fast vanishing tan head.
Brown sugar scent, malt, dark fruit.
A little woody with a strange tartness...a champagne feel with a twang of alcohol.
Not too bad.
