Can, 06/29/2012. Pours toasted amber, head dissipates quickly. Aroma lightly fruity- raisins, banana- brown sugar with light Belgian malt profile, biscuity. Taste of sweet malts, spices and light bitterness,fruity yeast finish. Body is a bit thicker, though not surprising for the ABV, nice carbonation. Decently tasty yet unambitious Belgian-style brew, not too shabby for coming from what looks like an energy drink can. beerproject (129) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 23, 2012
Aroma has alot of aromatic malt. Taste is your expected belgian yeasty flavors with a little caramel maltiness. For an 8% belgian, it is extremely easy drinking. LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Appearance: Pours a dark ruby with no head.deyholla (11604) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Aroma: Big fruity nose:apple /pear. Belgian yeast.
Taste: Fruity esters, candi sugar ,spicy hops. Some red apple as well. There was very so slight apparent alcohol.
Mouthfeel: Prickly, juicy,medium bodied.
Overall: As far as the beer goes, it was very tasty, very balanced, and would like to try more. As for the container, to me, it’s ugly as hell and seems like a bad fit for a Belgian-style beer. With that said, I got a real kick out of the idea of having some now, screwing back on the lid, and saving it for later. Honestly, looking at the container had me judging the book by it’s cover, and luckily, the beer was very tasty.
On tap at Haymarket. Pours a clear deep amber red with a light brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has some light flora notes with backing sweet grain and a bit of Belgian yeast/spices. Flavor begins with sweet grains and caramel but is joined by sweet grains, flora, Belgian spices and yeast. A bit muddled. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Brown sugar and light fruity (banana?) aroma. Clear orange amber with a small tan head. Sweet malt, tart barnyard flavor. Medium body with a dry finish.

Draft on tap at Haymarket’s Sun King Takeover (Chicago, IL). Pours a rich copper hue, good glow, rich haze, darker elements with a frothy bubbly tannish head atop. Laces well, sticks as a small layer. Aromas are gentle pear, apple, carmelized malts. Gentle biscuits, Belgian yeast element, and dry earthy hops. Initial is a good jhab of yeasty apple cider, gentle bready malts, mellow bread, and apple rich cidery sweetness. Cidery spice, dryness peeks in. Spicy and mellow fruity middle catches it’s stride, offering some mellow life and spice. Backend offers tangy apple, gentle spice, richer cidery feel. Really weird for me, with the Belgian element getting too sweet and into the tangy tart cidery realm. Ok. tjthresh (1873) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Pours clear, brownish red with a quickly vanishing white head. Interesting nose and a nice spicy flavor. Dry finish. Approachable. onceblind (9664) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 16, 2012
@ Oskar Blues Burning Can Fest 2012. Clear amber, with a fruity malty aroma, with some nice raisin and toffee tones under some yeasty peach esters. Flavor was yeasty and toasty with weird tones of raisin and Belgian cereal malts. Like it was a Belgian lager or something, with all that bready biscuity yeastiness. anders37 (26641) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 29, 2013

From old notes, tasted with Curtis and some friends in Nashville, probably some time near the summer of 2012, from an aluminum bottle. Pours clear copper with a thin white head that leaves a thin collar of lace. The nose is malty sweet caramel, candi sugar, some traditional, spicy Belgian yeast. The flavor is more bread with raisin, the same caramel and candi, and a bit of dry bitterness. The body is full with average carbonation and a long spicy, bitter finish.
