Tap at Blind Tiger. Poured a light copper. Nose is malty and a bit tart. Starts slightly tart then the Belgian yeast and flavors take over. A bit of warmth. Some light fruit notes too. Ends a bit acidic and a touch sweet. But pretty good.

4oz draft pour at Rustico Alexandria. Poured a very clear, golden orange color with a small, very lightly off-white head. Aroma was booze, lots of sweetness in there - totally clean malt character - alcohol burning.

nimbleprop (7792) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 22, 2016
32oz growler from Moms in Arlington, pours a mostly clear amber with some soapy, sticky white head. Nose is interesting, malt, something starchy like a soy bean, some dried leaves, some faint oak, yeast, some foreign booze - like Armagnac or something. Flavor is similarly unique, it really doesnt fit any style. Redolent of honeycomb, some golden raisin, lightly woody but lightly herbal too, a touch medicinal maybe, some butterscotch, light spice, light vanilla. Full bodied, oily, lasting finish. Very interesting.

HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 21, 2009
Sampled at FoBAB 09. Awesome name. Also had no idea this had split peas in it. Hazy murky amber pour, some head. Aroma is caramelly and a bit wheaty. Kind of strange. Flavor is pretty strong and caramelly also. Really not sure what to make of this one, but it was aight.

Draft @ Jackie Os (notes). Pours a hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor are heavy on sweet caramel malts, some toasted bread, a grassy component comes in, oak, vinous notes and a touch of vanilla. If it stopped there, this would be higher. Unfortunately, I noted the pea aroma and flavor like some of the others who have rated this. It wasnt overpowering, just enough to distract. Alcohol was fairly well hidden.
