Tasted at Bar Edward with my Dad. I think the word that best sums up this beer is ’pleasant’ it does everything right, it’s everything that i want it to be it’s well brewed, it’s accomplished and hits all the right spots for me.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 Bottle from Regionals.
Pours golden, white dissipating head. A bit of sweetness, pepper, and flowers on the nose. Mainly flavours of caramel, some spice, bit of malt and mildly hopped. Not too bad, a little one dimensional. At least it’s got a low carbon footprint!!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(On tap) Courtesy of yalnikim. Clear, amber golden with a creamy, off-white head leaving a neat curtain of laces. Aroma of yeast and flowers. Medium body a little low in carbonation with notes of yeast and fruit, a little diacetyl and a somewhat astringent finish. OK as such - just a little boring. 310108

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a copper golden with a light faint but dissapating head. Funky, woody, spicey, ’Belgian’ for the want of a better word aroma. Flavours a little smoked, spicey, phenols (tangy on the fillings) with a dry chalky, moody, intreguing finish. A little cloyishness(?), lively when seen poured. Not a 6-pinter but interesting and thankfully way different from the norm seen in this neck of the woods
