3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. The pour was a hazy burnt orange with an average sized (1-2 finger) white creamy head that hung on for a little while reducing to a few small puddles and a small ring of residue thus creating some excellent sticky streaks of lace.
The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, floral hops and a sweet moldy yeast with notes of citrus, pears, coriander, honey and a mild alcohol scent.
The taste was a fruity malty sweet with notes of citrus and honey from start to finish with notes of pears, green apple, a mild spiciness and a light alcohol tinge towards the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow with the sweet fruity alcohol taste lingering on well after everything else faded.
Mouthfeel was right in the middle of light and medium in body with a creamy dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a well rounded brew that had a ton of flavor and a mild fruity alcohol presence. Simply put YUM…

Thanks Hoff! Pours like an Orval. Lots of carbonation, thick head, and cloudy light brown color. Aroma is heavy on the bready yeast smell. Some leather, and wet wood as well. Taste is light sweet malts, breads, and muted fruit. Dry, tart finish, that warms the belly. Overall, not a bad beer. Enjoyed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of secret santa. Thanks. Pours a cloudy yellow-amber color with a monster sized foamy white head that has great retention and crazy lacing. The aroma is dominated by Belgian yeasts, white fruits, candy and straw. The taste is mild with straw, yeast and a bit of sour grapefruit. The palate is light but effective and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long, a touch sweet and dry. Overall: A bit frustrating to drink because I had to let the brew sit for ten minutes while I waited for the head to recede to a drinkable level.

Delicious beer on tap at the five spot in Savannah. Was told it was "wild hare" and that it was a triple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy deep orange amber with a white head cover, bands of lace. Aroma of malt and spice. Taste is sweet caramel malt that adds spices and yeast as it enters the palate. Then it moves to light bittering before a lingering alcohol warmed malt finish. This is a big ale, chewy, full of flavor. Working against it is that it drinks "heavy," and seems in conflict with itself, first, as a straight Belgian Ale, and then as a hoppy brew.

Golden color with a white head. Some citrus, apricot, and spices in the nose. The flavor is extremely sweet with some sugary notes, caramel, candy yams. Aftertaste is a bit syrupy. Overall not a huge fan of this it’s a bit cloying.
