COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed for Inlet Brewing Co. (ex Jupiter Brewing Co.) by Orlando Brewing Co., now by Thomas Creek.

This unique copper-colored ale derives its fruity, slightly spicy aroma from authentic Belgian Abbey yeast.

12 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a small, tan head. The aroma is apple juice, cherries, caramel, and cinnamon. The flavor is very sweet and malty, with a little spiciness. The palate is medium, chewy, and a little astringent. Overall, this is a nice amber ale, but nothing special.

This is a terrific brew. A friend turned me on to it down here in South Florida, I’m so glad that he did. It has great flavor, color, and texture. And it’s great to see it being sold in more nearby locations to my house - including my local 7-Eleven. Awesome! It will always be offered in my home when guests come over!

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle/12oz - Pours a hazy darkish amber in color with a small white head that hug around to produce some minor lacing on the glass. Aroma is of fruity yeasts, sweet malts and nutty grains. Flavor is slightly sweet... the Belgian yeast is noticeable and welcome... adds some fruity esters. Nutty grains still come through. Lingering sweetness. Surprisingly good...

SpringsLicker (3644) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours brilliantly clear orange/gold with a small white head that falls quickly. Light malt aroma. The flavor is lightly sweet with just enough hop bitterness to balance. Pretty simple, uncomplicated beer. Good lawnmower beer.

cmc619 (501) - California, USA - FEB 1, 2012
Bottle into New Belgium stemware. Slightly hazy, deep amber, bordering on red hue. Thinnish head that doesn’t want to stick around. Aroma of super-fruity Belgian funk, some penny, some 5-cent fruit-shaped candy. Palate feels slightly watery. Flavor lacks depth. In some ways reminiscent of oversweet homebrews I’ve had. Like an abbey dubbel lite.

Had the beer on draft and it seemed a little undercarbonated. Aroma had a hint of spice.

bhensonb (15358) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Bottle from Liz. Pours amber with a creamy white head. LIght spicy aroma, hint of nut. Med body; foamy carb. It first suggests a pils, then nut and spice pop in. Pretty drinkable beer. Balanced.

Dogbrick (13168) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Sample at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell on 01/06/2012. Clear amber pour with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of grainy malt, caramel and mild hops. Light body with flavors of bready malt, caramel and lightly bitter hops. The finish is short and malty. Pretty average overall.

2.9
Bosco (329) - Boca Raton, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Copper amber. Sweet, light toast. Soda pop fizz. Malty but still a weak amber ale. $1.66/12oz at Publix Greenwise Market in Boca Raton.
