3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the Woodward Theater. Pours a cloudy orange color with a small lasting off-white head. Notes of caramel, hay, toast, esters, nuts, dry grains, and dry leaves. Light-medium bodied, with soft medium carboantion and a malty, toasty, smooth, dry mouthfeel. Really nice simple toasty malt-forward Belgian ale.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at Muddy Pig. Pint glass. Aroma of malt, over ripened fruit, mild syrup. Not the best smell in all honesty. Light orange in color. Taste is heavy on malt with a near smoked taste that was not expected. Not a lot going on in terms pallete or flavor. I know this is supposed to be restrained but I think they did it to a fault. Good, not great.

Nose is toffee, sugars, Belgian yeast notes, dark fruit, pinch of spice, brown sugars.

Soft and clean copper golden pour with an off white head. Rusty/light iron notes in the nose with some tossed grain, smell like a dunkwlweisse to me. That burnt popcorn note... same goes for flavor. Belgian yeast got a little weird. Some light fruity notes. Medium light body and a soft finish.
