A Biere de Garde style ale using six malts (Pilsner, Six-Row, Munich, Biscuit, Kiln Amber, Aromatic), two types of hops (Columbus, Strisselspalt) and a variety of other spices and flavorings (roasted zucchini used in the mash, and fennel seeds, lemon peel, and Spanish cedar in the fermentor), and finally fermented with their proprietary Belgian House Yeast.

Golden pour, light head. Aroma is light spice, some odd herbal notes. Flavor is dry, herbal, lightly bitter.

Sample at Bruery Provisions. Pours a clear orange-gold color with a medium thick white head that burns away steadily. Sticky patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of yeast, citrus and herbal hops. Medium body with flavors of citrus, yeast, hops and spices. The finish is herbs and spices with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

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.

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.

Draft. Clear gold pour with white head. Bready, some sweetish mashed vegtables, spice, phenolic, and a cheap sugary sweetness. Not my favorite, in fact its far from it.

Tap. Rating #5. Clear golden orange color. The head was just a hair darker than white. Vegetal aroma, savory, I know that’s what they are going for, but it’s not for me. Nice flavor, dark and fruity, real nice. (1975)

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.
