COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied, copper ale with an enticing aroma and a warm rich finish. Mildly hopped with an abundance of malt in the palate in the finest tradition of the Netherlands.

Pours with a crisp, noisy head - very sparkly and quickly diminished. Slightly cloudy, golden color. Extremely aromatic, earthy, mossy, vinous malty. Distinct alcohol burn... fruity, raisin and caramel undertones, with yeasty earthiness prevailing. Nice bittersweet finish, some anise. Classy saison-like character. Lots of sediment. Fans of saison, biere de garde and funkier tripels should find this worth seeking out.

ok this crap has to stop! this is the second bad bottle in as many days... this was horrible.. first off the cork did not want to come out, and then it didnt make any noise when it came out, poured with no head, and tasted like olive juice, 2 sips and down the drain it goes

One of the few beers I’ve thrown down the sink. There are "off" flavors in this beer. Are they spices gone awry or infections? I don’t know. This is not a "clean" beer. If you like "funk", you might like this beer.
