Draft at Gourmet Haus Staudt. Hazy dark amber in color with a medium off-white head. Sweet caramel and fruity notes with mild Belgian yeast on the aroma. Sweet caramel malt flavor, a bit weak, with Belgian yeast and mild hops, and not much else. A bit heavy on the mouthfeel given the flavor. Decent but not great

Golden body, white head. Nicely balanced as so many other struises. Very malty and caramelly. Some mellow citrussy hop aromas. Too sweet for me.

Bottle. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A sweet fruity and peppery nose, some lemon zest. The flavor is interesting: dominated by spicy and sweet Belgian ale flavors, some light bitter hops and zesty citrus (mostly lemon). It works but isn’t quite as good as a IPA or Belgian Ale alone would be.
