9th October 2008. GABF. Another brief note because of the madness that is GABF first session! Dark brown clear beer. Malty wheat beer with just a hint of chocolate. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2008
(Draught) Pours a murky dark brown with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, wheat, smoke, toffee, and light anise. Flavor of dark roasted malt, wheat, nuts, and some cocoa. hopdog (12816) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2009
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a deeper brown color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of toasted and burnt malts and wheatiness. Tastes of roastiness, wheat, chocolate, and some lighter nuttiness. DocLock (10836) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2009
Draft at Capone’s. Pours dark brownish black with off-tan head. Nose is nutty, earthy, pumpernickly, with flavors of grainy malt, mild caramel, fig, and dark choc. Smooth but falls a bit late. Remains dry. JoeMcPhee (9456) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
Tap at Fette Sau. Very cloudy dark brown beer with a thin head. Aroma is soft and quite nutty. A kiss of dry cocoa, soft earthy character. A bit of light piny hoppiness on the nose, but it’s well-integrated with the malt. A hint of tartness through the middle along with the cocoa. This drinks like their 8 Days O’Wheat with a heavy shot of chocolate malt. Lingering hoppy/piny finish. I like it, but it’s kind of strange.

On Draft at Fette Sau in Brooklyn. Pours a dark murky blackish brown into a half-pint glass that’s wider than it is tall. Aroma is strong wheat with some alcohol. Taste is great wheat, roast, alcohol, and some molasses. MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2008
A Sim rate (tap at Fette Sau): Lots of alcohol in the aroma. Slightly smokey, but that may be the place more than the beer! There’s something really addictive about this smell (which is odd coming from a vegetarian!). Dark, opaque colour with really nice head. Delightful flavour with a bit of perfume. Tart finish. Wheat, but not at all in the dunkelweiss sort of way. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2008
On tap @ Fette Sau in Brooklyn. pours a deep black/brown. Aromas of roasted malt, chocolate malt. Medium to lighter body. Taste has slight wheat but roastiness dominates. Interesting vrew that went well with the pork belly & brisket egajdzis (6673) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2009
[Draft @ Capones] Poured a hazy brownish red color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, some cocoa, clove, light banana, citrus, and toasted malt. Taste of dark chocolate, some roast, vanilla, a bit of spicy phenols, faint citrus, toast, and a dry, spicy finish. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 25, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2008 In short: A dirty brown mess of a beer. Probably a problematic glass (I hope)
How: Tap at Fete Sau
The look: Murky brown body topped by a short lived beige head
In long: Liquid brownies, earth, old wet tree branches, extra ripe fruits, uncooked cookie dough, watery toffee, chewy dark bread. What a dirty beer that is. Half-dead carbonation, unsatisfying mouthfeel. An overall light moist and rot sensation. Felt like an end of keg almost past-due date beer. Drinkable but something was wrong with this pint. The last time I encountered such a lazy dirty mason he hadn’t shower for a week and the last house he built collapsed killing three pigs before the wolf could even try to blow it.
