Draft @ monkey paw. Hazed bronze, thin sheet of white. Smells of old fruit, I guess. Flavors are heavily yeasty, belgian in character, phleghmy in the throat, somewhat citrusy with a large dose of clove as well. Thick, heavy and syrupy body coupled with a heavy, muddled, gross yeast profile combine into something a kin to a malt liquor with half the water evaporated out of it. I should not have ordered this. This ticking shit is stupid....why the hell should I even attempt to drink stuff like this just to rate it. I hate this shit and I hate ratebeer.

Pours a golden orange. Spicy notes hit the palate first followed by some orange/citrus notes. fairly mild and not over the top. No zucchini taste for me. Also seems lighter than 8.5% Part of Ultimate Flight Night at 38 Degrees.

(on draught at the Provisions Store). Pours mostly clear golden with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet with lemon, belgian yeast and some vegetal notes? Taste is sweet with a bit of a tart twang. Getting some fennel. Full bodied with a creamy texture. The mouthfeel shows the cedar which is similar to Loakal Red in that respect. Pretty nice and not as crazy tasting as it sounds.

On tap @ the brewery. Light orange with a small amount of white head. Aromas of lemon, zuccihini bread, and herbs. This is a very unique beer, not sure i’ve had anything like it before. Quite sweet with, flavors of zucchini, spices, caramel malt and just a bit of cedar coming through. ABV is well hidden but I couldn’t drink more than one of these due to the sweetness.

A - Served a cloudy golden orange color wit ha finger of frothy white head. The head faded down slowly leaving behind lots of lace. S - Aroma is a mix of Belgian yeasts with some farmhouse smells, with some spices, earthiness, and vegetable aromas. T - Starts off with some vegetable and earthy flavors with a bit of Belgian yeasts and caramel. Through the middle, some wood comes through with some lemon and stronger yeast flavors with some clove and banana. The finish is a mix of yeast and spices with some more vegetable flavor. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with a bit of sharpness on the tongue. D - Very drinkable. Interesting mix of flavors but comes together nicely, especially the vegetable flavors.

Taster at Bruery Provisions. Interesting brew to say the least. Had some vegetal aroma with a hint of sweetness and a common Bruery yeast presence. Just ok in my opinion.

Tap at The Bruery. Light orange with thick white head. Different spices come through along with some toffee malt. Cedar and lemon show up also. Different and good.
