On draft at the Dutch with lunch. Yum. this stuff went well with the crab cake sangwich. Light coriander nose. Thin head. Strong all spice and coriander from start to finish on this medium bodied brew. Malts and hops take a back seat to this spice forward concoction. A nice one for those who want more than hops and malts. Ommegangesque.
2015 vintage. Pours a nice clear golden amber, with good white head. Aroma of fruit and sugars. Well balanced between traditional Belgian sugars and hops, this is a very nice brew. Thumbs up. rami_pl (3302) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAY 25, 2017

On tap at Sir Benedict's. Pours hazy caramel with scant cream head. Nose is banana, spice, and floral notes. Taste is similar with sweet fruitiness and clove spice balanced by hoppy and grassy flavor. Finish is a faintly dry. Body is medium. Definitely something I could drink a few of. rosskyle (665) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 7, 2017

Fantastic wild ale, balanced well between malts and hops. Just enough yeast and spice to let you know it's a wild. Great in many respects!

Vintage 2013 -
Aroma: fruity yeast esters dominate (get some papaya, orange rind), some spices, some sweet malts and a slight funk.
Appearance: pours (into tulip glass) a medium amber with a maroon tint. a 1/4" of white head with below average retention. the beer is hazy but overly so. some minimal lacing was observed.
Taste: pronounced sweetness, caramelly malts, molasses and candy sugar. somehow balanced by enough earthy bitterness and yeast funk.
Palate: medium/full body, rich almost chewy texture, moderate carbonation, and significant astringency. Finishes sweet and long. Lingering astringency.
Overall: complex beyond a basic BPA. has not mellowed with age. still a lot going on... Tide (3830) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 7, 2017
Bottle from City Beer SF. Amber color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, earthy notes, ripe fruits, yeast, coriander and a bit of hops. Bitter finish with citrus, earthy notes, yeast, ripe fruits, hops and grass. Excellent Belgian ale. kliggerwar (152) - - FEB 25, 2017
Good, smooth, taste and smell of cloves. Something I should probably drink on thanksgiving. Very good strong beer. BeerViking (4710) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2017
2016 bottle bought in SF. Amber-brown and fizzy with little head. Nose is banana with light caramel and dry herby-spicy notes. That carries through onto the palate with a dry peppery bitterness and a nutty malt undertone. Nice. Ronritter (659) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - FEB 21, 2017
