UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 12oz bottle 4/12/14 (Payless Liquors-Indianapolis) -Pours a murky oranges amber with a small white head. Aroma of funk, yeast, and sweetness. Taste of the same. This is not a good Belgian pale.

Bottle. Pours a light, slighty cloudy copper orange. White head, dissipates. Aroma is a light fruit and malt combo. Taste is is light combo of ripe fruit and citrus. Thin mouthfeel. Not sure on the really low ratings here. Not strong, but not awful either.

malrubius (1683) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle from Save On. Copper orange with ring and chill haze. Minimal aroma of spice and cinnamon toast with apple jelly. Very fruity malts with some tartness and tart finish. Either infected or not very good tart beer. Website says, "With sweet, toasty malt overtones and a delicate hop finish,...." so I conclude it is infected. Website also says, " ďSin BinĒ is slang for the penalty box Ė where players seek forgiveness for unjust deeds on the ice." I think they should seek forgiveness for this beer because I wonít buy another of their beers until they do.

DrSilverworm (6306) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2013
5oz taster on tap at Cincinnati Beer Fest. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Good bits of lace. Medium body. Lighter, crisp, sort of tingly carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate bitter taste. Kind of metallic twang to the flavor. Some light floral, lightly herbal hop. Light spiciness. FLavor is way wierd, and no way of indicative of a BPA besides light spice. No belgian yeast character. Besides that, not awful. Some decent citrus hop character.

patrick767 (3567) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 10, 2013
bottle - Lightly hazy amber-orange poor with a minimal off-white head. The aroma is of very tart citrus. Uh oh. The flavor is tart with some off tasting bitterness and subdued malt sweetness. I passed on rating the first bottle I had of this beer a couple months ago as it was clearly infected. Later I bought this bottle. I really donít think this is supposed to be a sour ale. Infected. Again. It could be worse but not by much. Thin. Tart in a really bad way. Bleh.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 4, 2013
12 ounce bottle. A big golden hued head fills my Spigelau glass. A honey gold beer under it. Sticky lacing. The foam seems to take forever to subside. The aroma is "Belgianesque." Yeast and fruit notes. The first sip brings a sourness that is a negative. It comes across as a sour ale. Compex fruit and caramel flavors with yeast and pale malts. It brings a little bretty funk. This could be a saison but has more barnyard funkiness. I am not sure it is supposed to be a wild ale but it has ended up being one. And not a bad one at that. But my guess is that is infected.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 11, 2013
Nose is light fruts and some spicy mustiness. Flavor is some fruits and spice that turns very tart, dry, and nearing sour. Not much malt going on. This didnít do it for me.

mcnealc31 (250) - Elida, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Color is dark orange, but not quite to copper. Yeast and orange dominate the aroma. Sweet malt with a toasted background. That pleasant funk from Belgian yeast. Itís almost like orange butterscotch. Hops only show up in the dry, slightly bitter finish. This doesnít have great reviews elsewhere, but Iím baffled. I think itís delicious.

12oz bottle in a Trappist glass. Pours amber/copper with a beige head. Aroma of pale malts, light hops, and a weird spiciness/barnyard note. Flavor the same with a weird almost sour in a bad way finish. Average texture. Not great, maybe a bad bottle.
