3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Malty nose with some fruit and touches of spice. Cloudy dark amber pour with thick, persistent foam. The malts come forward in the taste, bread / hay with spice (pepper) and yeast in the middle and a hoppy bitterness at the end. Medium body. Comes across as a mild Belgian with some good hops.
Sampled at the Pittsburgh Big Pour 2014.
