[Tap] Ruddy copper colored pour with a soapy looking head. Aromas of dark fruit, caramel malts and subtle Belgian yeast notes. Flavors include caramel, yeasty phenols, molasses, earthy hops, light citrus and fig. Sticky mouthfeel. Mild barnyard character develops as you drink more of it. Decent stuff. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

Strange beer. It tastes like Belgian light. The smell is a bit off to me. Chemical perhaps. Flavor is mild with clove and brown sugar. Not overly hoppy or malty really but balanced. Drinkable but the smell is rough.
