Clear slight copper,but gold.1/3 of a bomber pour.Light head/lace. Aroma is tangy peppery/spicey with pear,sweet apple,pineapple maybe. Sweet candiish. A little woodsyish.Alchohol detected but hidden very well. Flavor of this is quite good with pear pineapple, orange,smooth with caramel candy,tangy with peppery/spice finish.Too smooth with good sweet/spicyness to notice any hot alcohol,mildly dry but just a little burn on the end covered well by its spicyness.Seems quite drinkable and unboozy to me,pretty great beer.

At first I thought I was really going to enjoy this beer. Its got a ton of flavor up front. Hoppy and a little malty. But as I drank it more and more I began to taste nothing but the 16% alcohol. It could have been in my head but I couldnt get past that. If it wasnt so strong I really think I would have enjoyed it more

Aroma and strong flavor of cardamom almost smokey on the palate. Definitely sweet but also clove notes. It is an ok Belgium style but not too drinkable. Beautiful golden color and very smooth mouth feel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

crossovert (6927) - Illinois, USA - MAY 13, 2013
Golden pour. Smells exactly liek a tripel. The flavor is a tripel with a huge maltiness. It is good for what it is but at 8% this beer woudl probably be a winner.

WabashMan (1009) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Pours a crystal clear medium orange that effervesces slightly up to a somewhat thing and quickly fading white head. Nose is sweet and yeasty. Flavor is typically Belgian with lots of fruit notes --- pear and apple come through. Finish is dominated by the alcohol as the warming effect lasts longer than the flavor. Doesn’t drink like 16%, as it’s mildly warming but mostly very fruity and smooth.

This does not taste like a 16% alcohol beer. I may have guessed 9 or 10. It is very smooth, belgiany flavors that are very subtle. This is really drinkable and refreshing for the alcohol content. Aroma is mostly spicey belgiany yeast.

DeliveryDriver (170) - Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2013
Poured a clear, light golden color with a big white head that dissipates to nothing. Had aromas of apricots, pear, banana, and a touch of caramel. Really sweet and yeasty all the way down, and a bit of an alcohol burn at the end. Medium bodied beer that goes down quite easily. Alcohol was more prevalent as the beer warmed up. Good brew, a little light for my liking. Happy anniversary Two Brothers!

Tortman18 (182) - Batavia, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2013
22oz. Bottle. Pours a very clear orange with a huge, white head that dissipates quickly. A lot of lacing and a ton of carbonation. Aroma is pear, pineapple, yeast and malt. Not much going on here. Mouth is very yeasty with an interesting sparkling grape-like flavor and a slight hop presence. A decent beer, the alcohol content definitely helps this one.

On tap. Clear orange color. Thin white head. Decent bits of lace. Big body. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of creamy. Just a bit of sticky in the finish, that quickly turns dry. At first, I was amazed by how smooth this drinks for 16%. I talked to some of the brewers, though, and found out that it’s actually around 12%. Apparently the labels were approved before the final product was finished. It’s a very smooth body, no bite or burn as it goes down. Just a light twinge in the finish. I was amazed that it drinks like sub-12%, but later discovered that that’s appropriate. Sort of tangy, some belgian candy sugar (not too much though), banana, breadiness. Dried citrus-fruits, very light spice. Good stuff.
