2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
"Might be the first boring beer I’ve had from the Bruery. Mild is putting it light (no pun intended). This ussled brew has a nice zesty belgian yeast going for it, but other than some non-descript sweetness and/or fruitiness, that’s it. Not bad, but why collaborate for this when your own beers are so much better?"

750 ml bottle shared with the group. Pours a hazy brown color with a large fluffy off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel malts, yeast, moderate fruity character, very light bitterness, grass, definitely a session beer.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy brown orange with thick white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is caramel, yeast, and fruit. Medium mouthfeel with a light caramel malt and sweet fruity finish. Very good, held up well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dirty brown, huge head. It was a bit of a gusher, actually. Smells nicely fruity - apples and pears, with some caramel and toffee. Taste is caramel, bubblegum, and then apples and pears. Nice woody finish. Pretty enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is fairly malty with some toasted bread, caramel, hint of chocolate and nuts. Some medium light fruit notes - raisins, prunes, plum and pear. Faint phenolic note. Pours a clear brown with some copper and ruby hues. Moderately thick, large tan head that has average retention. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a light sweetness to it followed by some malt character. Caramel, toasted bread and a light chocolate note with a light roast character. Moderate nuttiness with medium light raisin and prune notes. Light pear and red apples. Faint phenolic character. Mouthfeel it?s light bodied with medium high to high carbonation. Low but present astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a fairly mediocre beer. I wonder if it would have been better fresh. The aroma is better than the flavor as there is an off note in the flavor that I can?t quite pin down. Either way good, but far from great.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Brownish/Reddish Hue, Passes Mild Light, Thick White Fizzy Head, Some Lacing that fades quickly
S: Bready, Yeast, Crackers, Mild Dark Fruit
T: Bready, Yeast, Mild Belgian Sugar, Mild Plum
M: Decent Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Grainy
Overall, this was very underwelming, just not much to it for flavor profile, especially for a Belgian Dark, just seemed rather bland and boring.
