Pours cloudy amber / brown that looks muddy with a small off-white head. The aroma has murky herbal traits, hints of figs, Belgian yeast, strange sweetness and smooth minerals. Medium smooth body with a good amount of subdued carbonation. The taste has lots of herbal and mineral traits, mild dry figginess, earthy murky yeastiness, raisins and dates. Comes across almost like a Belgian old ale. The finish has a bit of spice and more fruitiness. Interesting beer.

Travlr (9998) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 19, 2011
750 ml bottle at Max’s, my last beer of night #1 of the Belgian beer fest. Cloudy amber. Aroma of sour strawberry. Taste has mild lacto sourness, caramel, raspberry, slightly bitter finish. Not bad.

TheBeerGod (5176) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - FEB 17, 2011
Bottle - 750mL corked and capped. Slightly clouded copper body with a short, foamy beige head. Unique aroma with herbal notes, figs, soft hops and yeast notes. Taste is slightly tart with fig notes, hints of berries, herbal notes, bitter hops, earth notes and yeast. Body is medium with a strong, lively carbonation. Ends with more fig, berries, tart fruit, earthy notes, herbal flavors, and Belgian yeast. Different beer than expected.

nick76 (4179) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
The aroma is fruity with figs, caramel, and spice. The appearance is hazy amber with a thin head. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of paper. The palate is smooth.Overall it’s interesting but not great.

Palidor19 (2928) - Brandon, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Lots of date and fig flavors, has a slightly acidic taste with a soapy mouthfeel. A decent of flavor and style

hopscotch (8850) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 3, 2011
Bottle… Clear, dirty orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. The complex aroma furnishes date, fig, honey, aged floral hops, cherry and a small splash of maple syrup. Full-bodied with a lightly creamy/mildly oily mouthfeel and dancing carbonation. The flavor presents a mélange of dark fruits and cherries – a touch tangy as well. Short, fairly crisp, moderately dry finish.

drowland (5980) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2011
1/15/11. Self-opening bottle courtesy Blazer06 at the Sea Bass tasting. Slightly sour sweet aroma and taste that is quite nice.

csbosox (1220) - Prairie Village, Kansas, USA - DEC 27, 2010
750ml bottle. Murky copper color with a huge, khaki head. Herbal, subtle dried dark fruits, subtle white pepper and caramel/rum. Carbonation helps to lighten the body, but the finish is slanted bit towards the malt. Taste is somewhat malty and caramelized sugary with a strong herbal, peppery, and fig/date jam aspect. I would say the base beer would be classified as a BdG and the spice is, well unique, as I would expect from the brewer. There is a touch of tartness in the finish too.

meerbier (1473) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle@Home. Fruity and lightly spiced aroma. Deep red colour, beige head, fair lace. Sweet, sourish, fruity, light bitter, light herbal. Very low carbonation, little sticky.
