Draft @ the bruery. Slightly smokey and citrusy on the nose. Pours a reddish amber with a solid white head. Pineapple and citrus with caramel and malts. Nice.

Draft at Stone 14th Anniversary. Slightly hazy amber pour, off-white head. Caramel malts, light bread, some sweetness and fruit. Really not much going on here.

I guess Iím going against the grain here because I liked this beer. I had it on tap (not cask) at the Bruery. I enjoyed the interplay of the hops, caramelly sweetness with a touch of smokiness.

A: The pour is a dark amber color with a noticeable brownish tint to it. A nice off-white head which you donít always see from the cask. S: A decent enough nose. A good hop aroma up front with notes of citrus and grass, and a bit of pine. The sweet caramel malt comes through, too. T: This is overly sweet and too much cream in the caramel. There is also an odd fruit punch type of flavor that just seemed completely misplaced. A light bitterness on the finish. M: The body is medium with a very low, nearly non-existent, carbonation. D: One of the weaker offerings from the brewery special releases. I definitely like the finished product much, much better.

On cask at the Bruery. Pours dark brown with hint of red, slight off-white head. Odd aroma for the Oude Tart, malty, caramel, some hops, and sugar. Taste is very subdued. Mostly malts and hops with just the ever-so-faintest hint of tartness coming in at the end. I like the dry hopping, but just didnít like the unfinished product. Canít wait for Oude Tart though...

Cask at The Bruery. The color of a football with thick creamy white head. Flavors of toast, sweet spices and bread. Finishes with some hop bittterness. This will be a great beer in about 18 months.

On cask at the Bruery. Pours with a large tan head over a deep ruby-auburn body. Aroma is caramel, spicy hops, some fruit notes. Taste is nutty, caramel, spicy hops, light citrus and fruity (taste like most of the hop flavor was added only by dry hopping). Medium bubbles and creamy. Interesting, but I can say that the finished product (Oude Tart) is a LOT better!
