Amber/copper color. The flavor and aroma is dominated by the belgian yeast strain. A slightly odd mix of flavors going on, like it wasnít planned. The choice of malt/yeast/hops donít seem to blend together but itís an intriguing beer.

Hoppy Belgian Brown Ale?
Nice hoppy nose and pleasant Belgian yeast character with a hint of candy sugar.

Medium-bodied, refreshing and drinkable. Wasnít sure how Iíd feel about it but I ended up really enjoying this beer. Great when Iím in the mood for an amber but not a much body. Definitely going to track down bottles of this.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is grain and caramel.
The taste is caramel sweet, lots of it. A little lemon bitter finish. Still, it has a good enough balance.
The texture is medium.
A nice maltier ale.

750 ml bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. Clear bright amber with a thin off white head. Bright, eucalyptus hops, medicinal in a way, bread crust hops, a bit phenolic, old apple juice, apple seed/peel a bit woodsy, quite odd. Medium+ body, creamy carbonation. Apple, slightly minty and woodsy, lightly phenolic, bread crust, messy; dry with limited bitterness and an equally odd/messy, slightly watery/thin finish. What is this??

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark carrot-cake orange; glassy with not a ton of head. One arc of lace at the top.
Aroma is seriously earthy, like autumn soil. Slightly thereafter, there is a musty, cellar-like and dry hay component. So far, it is all malt and yeast in the nose. Grains of paradise. There is an herbal hop to it as well. I have to say the complexity grows the more your schnozz hovers over the glass.
The flavor is a combination of sugary malts, plus a tinge of flowery yeast funk. The must is palpable, and the aftertaste is pure tartness, like lemon or key lime. Touch of grassy finish. Just this side of cardboard, but not at all unpleasant. Touch of plastic.
The feel is very slick, but chunky and chewy innards. A little bready on the back end. If you didnít know better, you might think it was a bit old. Itís a very musty, malty ale, but a good one if youíre into that kind of thing.
