Bricktop86 (825) - Moore, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 27, 2012
Pours cloudy dark copper with white foamy head. Aroma of sweet rye, caramel, hay, Belgian yeast and some spice. Taste is initially sweet caramel and spiciness then switches over to slightly bitter rye. Long rye slightly bitter finish. Very nice

Fatehunter (2483) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Hazy copper color with a thick three fingers of head. Smells like day-old bread, plum, overripe banana and pine. Bold malt profile. Stays fairly non-sweet. A little bread, rye, sharp lemon. A foamy texture with moderate carbonation. I loved it. Great looking, smelling and tasting. Decently complex without being overbearing.

ben4321 (6100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Location: 750 ml bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/19/12, I just added this one and sent in a picture for it, might as well hit the trifecta and review it first too...

Aroma: Nose of Belgian yeast, spice, some funk, a little bit of rye malts, grass, pepper, and a little fruit
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy golden orange color with a half inch sheet of beige head that really doesn’t ever seem to dissipate and some fairly heavy, sheeting lacing on the glass as well
Flavor: This one has a lot of funky/yeasty flavors up-front, there is also some light rye whiskey, with an a underlying sweetness, and a spicy, slightly tart, and mildly bitter finish
Palate: The body is medium-full, it is smooth and creamy, with a soft carbonation, and a lightly dry finish
Overall Impression: I liked this one quite a bit. Not everything about it works perfectly, but it is a pretty good effort, and a nice collaboration. I’m glad I got to try this one, it is right up there with the best things I have had from Choc.

jesperhammer (4552) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 7, 2012
27-AUG-2012, bottle @Papsø. Hazy orange with off-white head. Saison-like spice aroma. Taste is much more rye and malt. The rye has taken some of the freshness from the saison. Rye bread and spice. Better on aroma than taste. High carbonation.

Enjoyed a bomber with a friend on the patio after catching Jack White at Cain's Ballroom. It was a long night, all I remember is rating this and waiting to add comments later. I should have added comments then. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
