Brune aux reflets rougeâtres avec une fine mousse crème. Nez de miel. En bouche, des notes de caramel dominent sur un fond d’alcool. Un peu de fruits rouges surgissent en rappel.

From a 2013 bottle. Pours murky opaque copper with a fizzy white head. Tastes like toasted malt, caramel, some raisin and grapefruit, yeast, light dry spice. Smells like roasted malt, yeast, light raisin, dry toast, and light dry spice.

ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 27, 2012
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 4/27/12, Batch 1, Bottled Jan 2012

Aroma: The nose has some sweet malts, caramel, bread, Belgian yeast, earth, and hints of fruit
Appearance: It pours a murky looking orange-brown color with a beige head, and minimal lace
Flavor: The taste mostly sweet, with similar components to the nose, and a latter earthy spice feel
Palate: The body is medium-plus, with a soft carbonation, some stickiness, and a fairly lengthy finish
Overall Impression: I thought this was a decent one. It wasn’t exactly an extremely Belgian offering, but there were some clearly Belgian components. Thus far, this was my favorite thing I’ve tried from White Birch (but that isn’t a huge compliment).

emacgee (4711) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Thanks djrn. Pours a hazy reddish amber with a one finger sandy tan head. Nose is acidic and lightly grainy, notes of cherry skin and cereal grain. Kind of slick... Grainy with a soy saucy character. Weird esters and acidity in there. Light bodied and slick on the finish. meeeehhhhhh
