COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
For our second local collaboration this year, we teamed up with Los Angeles based Eagle Rock Brewery. For those who don’t know the beers of Eagle Rock, they are some of the finest around and it was really fun working with their crew. Together we blended our styles and developed a pretty unique recipe that we are referring to as a Belgian-style mild ale. There aren’t many sessionanable Belgian ales around and Eagle Rock is well known for some lower alcohol beers; we are very excited for you to try this one.

Benzai (8530) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle shared by Joes @ ZZT VII. Hazy dark orange to reddish color, small off - white head. Don’t get a lot of aroma. Taste malts, some I get some alcohol, fizzy carbonation, some kind of fruits and some yeast. Hmm don’t really like it.

deyholla (6706) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has mainly earthy grains with a light yeast and dark fruit note. Flavor is mainly grain and light fruit with a hint of Belgian yeast.

750ml bottle. DANG dogg the beer done came shootin’ right out the bottle! Crazy. After half of it ended up on the floor, I poured it into a Bruery tulip. Cloudy reddish color, foam taking up 3/4 of the cup. Nice Belgian yeast aroma with candied fruits, like a watered-down dubbel of sorts. Decent if weak flavor with sweet candied plums and raisins and a slightly bitter finish. Medium-bodied with a slightly watery mouthfeel and high carbonation. A little weird, but good overall.

arkurzynski (1540) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - APR 14, 2013
Bottle from GAManiac. Thanks! Hazy garnet-hued brown pour with copious off-white head. Nose is a mix of yeasty spice and esters, toasted cinnamon buns, tart fruit, caramel, and toffee. Flavor is moderately tart berry and mango with toasted/lightly roasted malt, caramel, and spice. Fairly thin mouthfeel, slightly slick. Residual acidic fruit and toasted malt. Tastes kind of like the second runnings of a dark dubbel. Not bad, just fairly lackluster.

JorisPPattyn (7970) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2013
Despite gushing, rapidly disappearing cream-amber head over fully hazy red-amber beer. Rainwater, wet dog, faintly sourish-grassy; faraway meaty esters at the end. Sweetish-sourish, rather balanced. Finish being sweeter, and also, again, meaty. Has also some definite (milk)chocolate streak, faintly vinous. Very carbonated, spritzy MF. Light body (obviously). Interesting, refreshing... but it remains indeed a beer for the match, not one to savour at the hearth.

A - Clear red-brown with a finger of frothy tannish head. Fades fairly slowly. S - Sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, dark fruits, Belgian yeast, some spices, touch of nuttiness. T - Sweet caramel and dark caramel malts, raisins, plums, and other dark fruits, Belgian yeast, some spices, some nuttiness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a fruity and lightly sweet finish. D - Great mild Belgian Dark Ale. Complex and well balanced.

laiti (5753) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
75 cl bottle @ olio, no BBE info
Foams much when pouring. Aroma is spicy and somewhat stale with some citrus and apricot. Flavour is slightly tart with citrus, berries, some green apples, hints of apricot and spices. Palate is a bit too high on CO2. A bit too stuffy and acidic, but still somehow refreshing. Feels a bit watery on some sips.

75 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a large head. Aroma of yeast, ripe fruits, goose berry bush, earth, some barnyard notes and hints of spices. Flavor of sour fruits, mild caramel malts, yeast, spices and some goose berries. A bit too high carbonation.
