Sampled at cap ale innsbrook. Dull copper pour with mildly dense white head. Surprisingly sweet and verging on cloying sugary. Smells citrusy, and belgian, little candi sugar. Intersting. wouldn’t have pegged it as an amber. but pretty tasty. vtafro (7445) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2012
Draft. Amber pour with tan head. Some herbal spice, fruit and malt aromas. Wheat forward flavor, light spice, citrus, and grains. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 15, 2012
Draft at Mekong. Medium hazy copper, decent head. Aroma is faintly grainy, hint of spice. Flavor is caramel accented grains, light citrus, and an undefined, mildly Belgian spice flavor, presumably from whatever yeast strain was used. Nice, but rather unremarkable. A touch sweet. dbarnold (1127) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Amber akle with belgian yeast? Fall seasonal belgian? yes and yes. Brown, cloudy, with lots of white lacing. It’s sweet, yet very easy to drink, and you can taste the variety of grains it’s brewed with. Finish is a little sweet and lingers well, but not heavy. Good to pair with sweet foods.
