COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Notes of rich coriander spice, bright citrus, and subtle malt backbone greet the nose. On your first sip, the citrus and spice meld with sweet bready notes and Belgian yeast undertones. This complex brew, made with both blood orange and grapefruit zest, is a full-bodied blend of two distinct styles.

GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Tap at Bier Market in Cleveland, OH. Rocky tan foam on near black. Good lacing. Nose brings out a mildly sticky body, dusty cocoa, esters, gamey coffee. Taste brings dog food husky raw malt, spicy Belgian yeast, mild piney hops. Powdery, chalky, ashy mouthfeel.

Palme (4816) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2013
On tap @ Rattle N Hum NYC. A lovely looking really dense and lasting brown head on top of a deep dark brown body. The nose is not to extreme but I get some salty licorice traces, a little bit of wheat and it’s almost grassy - like in reed. It gets much more present after a while in the glass and suddenly I get lots of fresh green coriander and basil! Oh, the basil... Fair. Quite tasty. It has a sweet licorice touch with mote of that wheat and a little bit of cardboard. It’s quite light on the mouthfeel, not directly watery but quite light and the carbonation level is about the same, light. Some roastiness towards the finish before its ending in a herbal almost dark tea like experience. Not a huge favorite but fair. 11.06.2013

Butters (4063) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Sampled on draft at Chip’s in OBX. Clear dark brown pour with small ring of khaki head. Nose sweet and lightly citrusy. But on the flavor, I find that the citrus notes don’t particularly play well with the dark malt and almost rye spiciness for my palate. Bitter orange pith on the finish is less orangey than bitter pith. I don’t think this is a bad beer. I just didn’t particularly care for it all that much.
