Appearance: clear coppery-amber pour with two fingers of dense, foamy, light beige head that slowly shrinks to a rocky surface cap; lots of carbonation; a second pour to top off was a little over-agressive, leading to some floaties. Aroma: malty and sweet, with prominent yeasty clove notes, nutmeg, a bit of burning cardboard, and some saison-like must; a hint of banana, perhaps, lends this almost a weizenbock-ish nose. Taste: grainy, with some orange marmalade, clove, a hint of cinnamon, apricots, white raisins, and star anise. Finish: sweetness, spices, and a bit of heat (rye?) last pleasantly, and theres a surprising sour bite at the tail end to help cleanse the palate. Notes: Its not a gulper, but its not a sipper either. Seems almost like a maltier, spicier version of their Rare Vos. Its good. Darn good. Im a sucker for beers with rye in the malt bill, and I was pleased to actually get some of that rye heat, especially in the finish.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 27, 2013
THOUGHTS: Nice spicy Belgian. Nice break from all the pumpkin, Oktoberfest and fresh hop beers out there, but I dont know how autumnal it is. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a slightly cloudy, light, orangey brown with a huge, off-white, head that mostly diminished, but left good lacing. The aroma was not bad, but was weak and contained mostly rye, both sour and spicy; light to moderate dark bread and grain; light nutty malts; light earthy hops; and moderate spicy yeast. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and sour, and slightly bitter and acidic; while the finish was lightly sweet and acidic, and slightly sour with an average duration. There was spicy and sour rye, spicy yeast, other grain, dark bread, and light earthy hops. The medium body was fairly dry with fizzy carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

Pours a hazy amber with copious amounts of tan head. Nose is very fruity with notes of banana, pineapple, and coriander. The flavor is a nice balance between the fruits and the heavier malts without overly favoring one or the other. A nice beer that would please a wide variety of beer drinkers in my opinion.

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - APR 28, 2013
12oz. bottle. Pleasantly complex aroma, lightly sweet and fruity with notes of golden apple, pear, melon, citrus, honey, light caramel, and a heavy dosage of spicy, peppery, doughy yeast, some hints of clove and banana here as well. Hazy light-medium orange amber color, with a foamy, lasting, large-bubbled head of white and plenty of thick lacing to boot. Flavor profile is gently sweet, fruity and spicy, with suggestions of lemon and spice from the rye, with a tropical fruit blend, estery yeast, faint caramel and touches of bready, grainy malts and faint herbal hop tones appearing late. Bitterness is fairly minimal. Highly effervescent, light and smooth on the palate, no doubt courtesy of the oats, with a medium body. Maybe just another generic Belgian-style ale from this brewer, but a well executed and tasty one.
