Poured into a standard pint glass. Pours an opaque coppery gold with moderate head. Head has excellent retention, amongst the best i have seen. Smell is full of earthy and grain tones, truly smells of harvest. The taste is complex, with flavors of fresh grain, malt, and earth. Moderate carbonation and very smooth mouthfeel. Overall an awesome beer, will definitely look for it again. camborne (1029) - Hopkins, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Cloudy amber color with rich colored head. Tastes like some of the Belgium beers that I have learned to love. Caramel and pepper notes. Really tasty brew tmongoose (2504) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2012
12oz poured an orangish color with a white head. Nice aroma of malt and rye. The flavor a bit peppery from the rye and the malt. On the back end is almost like a lemongrass something kind of sweet but blends ver well. wlajwl (7066) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Aroma is citrus, yeast a hint of sweetness and malts. The flavor is yeast, medium sweetness, citrus/fruit, malts, a creamy palate and a smooth finish. fidelis83 (2509) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours a somewhat hazy, vibrant copper with a 3 finger, fluffy off white head that has great retentino and leaves good lacing. Aroma is full of rye spice, husky grain, cereal and fruity belgian yeast. Flavor is raw grain and tree fruit up front, coriander and spices, stone fruit, mineral and light citrus, spicy and grassy hops to the finish. Light to medium body with a creamy, slightly dry entry, light, blanketing and somewhat sharp carbonation and dry, slightly acidic finish. Really tasty, probably would be a belgian pale if not for the specialty grain label.

Single bottle, Total Wine. Pours a nice hazy copper with a large creamy head and a lot of lacing. Aroma has some brown rice and black pepper added to the expected grain. Yeast, sourdough bread, and a little sweet citrus in the flavor. Really interesting palate - a lot of carbonation but still feels thick and silky on the tongue. Good stuff.

Astringent alcoholic and bubblegum powder. Bitter after. PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 22, 2012
Jacksonville, Fl. - Grassroots Natural Market - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy, medium copper with a sticky thick white head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma has an enticing sweetness to it with some light bubble gum notes, a touch of white grapes, some brown sugar. Flavor is full and bold with some licorice accents, a touch of molasses, some caramel, a hint of bubble gum and a touch of vanilla in the back end, thick rich mouthfeel. Would make a good winter warmer.
