3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
IBGF 2009: 1 3/4 Belgian named, slightly hazy amber hue with a frothy head and spotty lace. The aroma has notes of candi sugar, caramel and bready malts, a hint of rye, plum, oranges and apples, bubblegum esters, and a hint of minerals. The taste is rather sweet at first but a fair amount of fruity and spicy notes are found soon enough. The problem is that nothing really stands out. The mouth feel is smooth and soft but a tad watery. Very average American made version.

tap at the Indy brewpub - Pours amber and has a yeasty malt aroma. The flavor is sweet malt with some light fruit esters. Itís medium bodied and bubbly with a lingering finish of mild hops and more sweet malt. Itís decent but not remarkable.
