baraciisch (3338) - California, USA - NOV 17, 2014
Caramel orange brown in color... Aroma of nutty brown malts, Belgian yeast... Flavor is fairly nutty, Belgian malts, light yeast... Decent brown, nothing that special... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2011
On tap at Tyler’s, Durham. Thick pour, more cloudy than your average brown but still buoyed by nice carbonation. Nose was sharp and spicy, with tons of malt and a familiar yeast strain. Slightly sticky and chewy palate bogs things down a bit, and the yeast (which I think they may also use for their Grand Cru) ends up dominating just a bit much. But it’s nutty and sharp in the right balance and was a decent brew on a rainy day.

Tap at green flash. Pours a brownish amber with a medium bubbly white head. Aroma of chocolate, Belgian spicy yeast notes and tobacco. Flavor of the same.

3.3
HopMasterFlex (108) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAR 14, 2011
Pours a brown color with a white head. Smells of yeast, sweet fruit, and malts. Taste is yeast, wheat, banana, and roasted caramel malts. Has a little spice flavor on the after taste.

Draft @ BT. Brown pour with tan head. Yeast throws banana and light fruit notes. Some light malt notes. Kind of boring.

3.4
Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Draft. Pours a bruin body with an off white head and good head retention. Fruity and bland mineral tones, a nice yeast sediment and fruity banana notes. Spicy yeast with a dry finish and a light pear prickle. Good brew.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2010
Tap @ the brewery. Pours an opaque deep brown with a small off white ring. Nose held some yeast and roasty characters, light spice and banana as well. Flavor profile was much of the same.

2.8
JoeMcPhee (9516) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 30, 2010
Deep brown pour with a thick sticky tan head. The nose has a sort of soft, Belgiany spiciness. A little bit of nice chewy sweetness, but like a lot of American-brewed “Belgian” ales, the yeast comes across as very dirty. Oddly chewy palate with a lot of clove and light cocoa. Has a sort of indistinct earthy/spicy quality. Meh – I’m not a huge fan of this one.

3.3
doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2010
Pours brown, hazy, medium sized head, good lace. Smells sweet and nutty malty, big yeast notes. Tastes the same with a big roasty finish. Pretty ok. Medium body, nice carbonation.
