3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask @ The Bruery. Clear amber pour with a finger of off-white head. Really nutty, bready malt nose. Some light fruit esters, floral hops, earth, and tea. Slight herbaceous quality and orange oil. Flavor is pleasantly sweet with lots of caramel and toasted bread. Bitter finish of tea, woody herbs, and chalk. There’s a hint of citrus and lots of earthy hops.
Earlier Rating: 10/9/2010 Total Score: 3.7
A: The pour is an opaque copper color with a fluffy off-white head that settles down to a thin layer.
S: Sweet candi sugar (a theme with Goose Island’s Belgian styles), caramel, and bread in the grain/sugar department. Some subtle, but at the same time obviously present, spices. I seem to get some nutmeg and allspice, as well as some slightly grassy hops.
T: The spices are more noticeable on the front end of the palate than they were in the nose. Bready malts and some definite sugar notes, but not exactly cloying. A light caramel note and some hints of strawberry and sweet citrus.
M: The body is medium with a somewhat low carbonation for a Belgian style beer, but not dangerously so.
D: I was hoping for a bit more from this beer. It was good, certainly, but for a beer that is talked about so much, I found it to be a bit uninteresting.
