Pours copper brown with light head and heavy lacing. Citrus and honey flavors. Hops are well balanced and do not overpower the yeast. A very interesting take on a Belgian Ale.

Unique beer. Pours a rich copper color with a robust fresh head. Aroma of sweet malt and honey. Taste is malty and very fresh - pours, looks and tastes like a draft beer. Very enjoyable - bears some resemblance to the yards Thomas Jefferson Ale.

Serving: 750 ml. bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours a dark ruddy amber with a sizeable off white head. The nose has nice Belgian yeast notes along with a slight fruitiness and light floral hop notes. The flavor is well balanced with a hint of honey sweetness, bread, Belgian yeast, earth and floral hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Complex enough to be good without turning into a mess. Solid brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 750 ml bottle from Sparrow, 10/13/13
Aroma: The aroma is sweet and yeasty, lots of honey, plenty of floral notes, and some lighter spice
Appearance: It pours a cloudy reddish colo, wiith a foam beige head and lots of sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is medium-plus sweet, with some floral hops, and just a little balancing bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, fairly sticky, with a slight tingle, and a lightly dry finish
I actually thought this combination worked pretty well. The heavy sweetness didn’t bother me. There’s enough hops to provide balance. The honey is prominent, but the floral, spice, and citrus notes play interesting roles here as well. Worth trying.
