On tap @ Urban Chestnut. Amber pour with a white head. Lots of spicy, clove aromas. Nice banana, caramel, and a strange herbal note. Flavor has kind of a licorice/anise note to it. Lots of clove and white pepper. Banana, caramel, brown sugar, and dates. Interesting.

DrSilverworm (6374) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Taster on tap at the brewery during RBSG. Hazy orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Dots and ropes of lace. Nice candied orange flavor. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Medium to bigger body. Some spice. Moderate sweet, kind of zesty, moderate bitter. Pretty nice, interesting, unique dubbel!

Frank (2868) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
Urban Chestnut does excellent German styles and OK other stuff. This is other stuff so it is OK. It is a hazed amber orange. It has medium bubbles and a white head that leaves sheets of lace as it dwindles. The nose is loaded w/ caramel and the banana yeasty character only seems to really come out once you taste it. This is rather sweet and thick rather than the lighter, creamy texture which would make for a more drinkable beer. The expression of cloves and spice is unfortunately a touch on the medicinal side. If this was a little dryer and the yeast character was a bit more vibrant, it’d be great but it doesn’t quite hit the mark when I tried it.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at the Grove Location (St. Louis, MO). Pours a darker copper brown hue, a decent haziness in the body shows gentle dulled glow on the bottom and edges. Cakey beige head atop stays as a nice firm layer, good stick around and lacing. Aromas are distinct apple, carmelized malts and biscuits. A bit estery, gentle toast and Belgian spicy yeast. Gentle dark fruit as we grow accustomed to it. Initial is medium bodied, carmelized apples, gentle banana and fruity life shows a bit of gusto. Almost tart, firm esters up front taper out to a carmelized and sweeter biscuit/toffee malt bump in body and flavor. Some warmth, fuzzy carbonation and earthy hops, gentle warmth and alcohol hot some ABV, spiciness and yeast. Spicy and carmelized elements, firmer yeast pick up the pace and run things in the backend. This is good, potent fruity qualities up front are a bit strong but the backend shows some promise with more integration of malt elements, spicy yeast. Pretty solid, the body seems about right overall. Potent banana and apple taper out showing that firmer darker slant malt expression, touches of lingering candi sugar and yeast. Nice. Especially considering it’s not really my style.

deyholla (6633) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the Grove location. Pours a clear amber gold with an off white head that lasts through the beer. Aroma lots of sweet grains and Belgian yeast with a hint of light fruit underlying. Flavor has lots of sweet grai, a bit of apple and lots of Belgian yeast.

wxman (1427) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at the source. Pours a cloudy amber with a substantial off white head with plenty of lace. Nice banana, malt and yeast aroma. Sweet roasted malt taste that is both caramel and maple, and at the same time bananas and candy. Really good stuff!

Draft. Nose is spicy with some plum and grape. Pour iSight brown with reddish tint. Taste is sugary sweet up front without much else going on, some alcohol warming.

Strykzone (4931) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Sampled at RBSG. Amber and almost clear. A bright aroma of intetesting fruit that is candy fruitcake. The flavor is almost as wacky. Lots of fruot and candy. The tripel flavors also come out. Wheat and yeast. Intetesting and fun.
