3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden orange brown pour with minimal head and lacing. Spicy aromas that carry into the flavor along with candied fruit - some nuttiness too ... reminding me of a port without the wine backbone. Good body and a long lasting terrific finish. Can’t wait to have this one again!!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Appearance is hazy light brown with decent sparkle, 2-finger width foamy beige head with good retention and fair lacing. Aroma is light banana, clove. Taste is light banana, clove and peppery spiciness. Palate is medium bodied with thick texture, lively carbonation and mildly sweet and yeasty finish. Overall, a nice beer without huge, bold flavors or complexity, and slightly over-carbonated, but very good nonetheless.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Backlog, On tap, pours a hazy orange with large soapy head. Stuck around for a good bit. Nose of plum, grape, belgian yeast, florals, and spice. Flavor was rich malt, dark fruits, wood, and old stuff. Medium body with average carbonation. A nice Belgian on a cold night.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a Lazy dog.
slightly hazy medium golden color with a huge bubbly frothy off white head that takes forever to recede. Clove and spice lay heavy on the nose with some faint bready maltiness. The flavor is sweet bready malt light earthy big clove and peppery spice. Well made beer, but its a bit heavy on the clove and spice for my tastes.

Nice tart aromas of apricot and yeast. A little barnyard. Pours red brown and clear with an off-white head with tiny bubbles. Nice sour favors of leather and licorice. Short sour finish and good fizzy mouthfeel. Pretty balanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Uptown. Pours hazy amber-orange with a large beige head. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, cherry, peach. Flavor is thinner than I expected... tangy metal, yeasty, little fruit notes (unlike the nose), grasses. Meh. Had potential.
