COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is a Belgian-style double brewed with a traditional coriander, and an uncommon addition of kaffir lime and lemongrass. An amber body, rich, flavorful, absolutely delicious, and entirely too drinkable for a beer that’s 8.5% ABV.

Can, 54cl - Semi hazy red beer with a small head. Aroma is fruity with notes of citrus, lemongrass, caramel and rum casks. Flavor is fruity with notes of citrus, oranges, lemongrass and rum. I really enjoyed this, insanely drinkable!

Osprey87 (1180) - London via, WALES - APR 5, 2014
Cold can. Pours a dirty dark red / brown, slightly sparkling, small white head doesn’t last. Aroma of sour caramel, cherry cola, clay. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste - very sweet caramel (oversweet), slight coffee overtones, spearmint, metallic, soft cherry finish. Alright.

DuffMan (6164) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Can. Hazy dark orange. Aroma is sweetly herbal on a barley candy base. Caramel malts support notes of ginger, perfumey citrus (not truly kaffir though), and breakfast tea. No hint of the ABV, but a bit too sweet to be sessionable, at least for me anyway.

Thisis12ptfont (781) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Aroma of smoked malts, amber malts, herbs, molasses, citrus and I can smell subtle lime. Amber appearance with decent lace. Nicely blended flavors amber malts, slight metallic tank notes, hop resin, subtle lime notes, cinnamon and herbs. Overall, this is a nice beer with herb and molasses overtones and subtle lime. Don’t get the lemongrass or coriander notes as much though. A- rating.

Dfonorow (1217) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle share at DLD 2013. Pour is deep amber with a quickly disappearing head. Aroma is very much belgian with notes of key lime pie, raspberry, banana, golden raisins, and coriander. Flavor is similar but with more of a spice/vegetable kick at the end. Strange, but good.

dresden (735) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 25, 2014
Can. Aroma of done sugar candy, citrus. Taste is like a caramel bomb, done lemongrass. This actually could be pretty interesting but not really working.

GregClow (2816) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2014
Can from the LCBO via jerc - thanks, Jer! Dark red-copper body with a thin tan head. Aroma is odd - getting more of a barley wine vibe than anything "Belgian-style", with barley candy sweetness, resiny hops, and perhaps a hint of citrus. Flavour starts quite sweet with dark sugary malt, followed by a distinct hit of lime, and a warm, boozy finish that has a bit too much residual sweetness for my taste. Not completely awful, but a bit of a mess, really.

daniel0017 (372) - Yukon, CANADA - JAN 1, 2014
Clear dark body with reddish-brown hue and stocky head of three fingers. Aroma of molasses, cane sugar, caramel and butter with hints of floral hops. Flavor has a strong, bitter-sweet quality but lets the warming alcohol seep.Viscous mouthfeel and coarsely bitter lingering aftertaste.

Tessic (816) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 31, 2013
This double poured a deep amber colour with a nice, big brown head. Scents include ripe fruit, caramel, cooked veggies and spices. First swig was sweet and creamy with flavours of cinnamon and brown sugar most predominant. An almost oily mouthfeel with very low carbonation, it sits quite sweet on the palate. Flavours of caramel and yeast linger...
