Draft. Pours orange brown with a beige head. Toasty malt aroma with a fair amount of fruity esters. The flavor brings a general fruity sweetness, along with floral hops and sweet caramel malt. Not bad. CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2009
sample: RNH: the nose is hoppy yet weak... high esters and some wheats... resilient head leaving nice lacing. Pwn3d (1958) - Manhattan, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Caramel and bitter spice. Some apple notes which must be derived from the Belgian influence. drewbeerme (3921) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2009
on tap at Falling Rock, pours dark red with off white head. the aroma is a rather off putting, a rotten red and dark fruit-yeasty thing going on. flavor is malty with that rotten fruit flavor. that beligan yeast strain took over this brew with poor results.

Some hop aroma. Dark bronze coloured and very fruity with a bitter lasting wheaty finish.

$6 pint on tap at Falling Rock. Dark reddish-orange, looks more like Red Rocket than Racer 5. It smells kind of grainy and not hoppy at all. The flavor is more grains and cereal malty type flavor, not really good at all. In fact this was a real disappointment to be honest.
Serving type: on-tap

9oz draft @ For the Love of Hops 6/6/09 (drank with FlssmrBrewAlum)-Pours an amber body with a small white head that dissipates rather wuickly. Aroma of belgian yeast and sweetness. Taste of the same with some hops added as well. This medium bodied brew was great tasting and definitely different. BrewDad (5667) - Olympia, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2009

Aroma: Nice amber sweet malt good Belgian yeast aroma also lingering.
Appearance: Amber in color, Clear with a light head.
Flavor: Decent Amber ale flavor with some Belgian yeast in the flavor this was refreshing.
Palate: Dry Belgian Finish, with a Good Mouthfeel.
Overall: This was an average Belgian ale.
Oregon Brew Fest: amber brown with white head, aroma just pretty malty, flavor not very Belgian but pretty much like a bland pale ale with some spices and a little bit of depth in flavor. raphael (1291) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 25, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Great fresh hop aroma (on tap in Healdsburg) with cloves, honey and orange peel. modest off white head on slightly hazy amber brew. flavor of peaches, woodsy hops. busy in the mouth, full flavored finish,
