3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a clear red-amber hue, with a frothy off white head that seemed to only grow rather than retain itself. Some lace remained as i sampled it. Aroma had a nice mix of some bread malts, a decent fruity aroma and a lot of Belgian yeast. Fruit notes were mostly banana, but there was some raisins. Flavor was sweet at first, almost cloying. There was a nice blend of fruit flavors and some sweetness from the malts. Sweetness was balanced out by some yeast, which gave it a good dough like flavor. Some bittering hops in the finish. Carbonation seemed low, which was a good thing. Although it was easy to drink it did have a good mouth feel.

Light copper color with a modest khaki colored head. Floor malt, caramel and hints of light spice in the aroma. Flavors are quite light, with light caramel and hint of dry spice. Toasted malt in the finish. A slightly better than average brown ale. 1/11

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a murky brown color with a small soapy tan head that faded and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty, sweet and had a bit of dark fruit. The flavor was tangy, bitter, toasty and a bit sour and medicinal with faint dark fruits. Short finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Sweet, metallic and astringent, which in my book is not a winning combination.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Brown and a little murky, but looking more American than Belgian. The aroma, and no surprise the flavor, are both super sweet, overpoweringly sugary, and not in the high octane way the master Belgians are. This is sweet grape, not yet raisin, and downright artificial sweetener-strength sugary wetness. (#5857, 11/15/2014)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber with a off-white, fine-grained, blown-insulation head. Nose is burnt sugar, pickles, cardamom, and roasted peanuts. More vinegar on the tongue; there is some plum and raisin, but that malic/acetic edge mars what might otherwise be a pretty decent stab at the style. Some sweetness as well. Finish is prickly and sweet/sour. Average.
