One of the few beers I've thrown down the sink. There are "off" flavors in this beer. Are they spices gone awry or infections? I don't know. This is not a "clean" beer. If you like "funk", you might like this beer.

I am simply going to start referring to this brewery as "the funk" because thats what they bring. Yeasty and slightly sour with flavors of fermented apples, caramel, and sugar. Not as complex as its big sister Beatrix but quite nice.

fraternie (1011) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 10, 2002
Extremely complex ale. Soft, yeasty nose, spicy tripelesque malt flavor. The finish is a mix of flavors- caramel, butterscotch, candy/sugar. Moderate hops. The sugar flavor seems to overwhelm the otherwise superb balance as the beer warms. Lots of yeast sits on the head and the beer is sedimenty. A very nice ale.

Pours with a crisp, noisy head - very sparkly and quickly diminished. Slightly cloudy, golden color. Extremely aromatic, earthy, mossy, vinous malty. Distinct alcohol burn... fruity, raisin and caramel undertones, with yeasty earthiness prevailing. Nice bittersweet finish, some anise. Classy saison-like character. Lots of sediment. Fans of saison, biere de garde and funkier tripels should find this worth seeking out.
