3.98/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Poured from 750 ml bottle into a clear tulip glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep hazy golden color with a nice creamy two finger foamy head. Foam fades slowly leaving nice sticky lacing and a thin foam cap that lasts throughout.

Smell: Sweet and spicy with aromas of clove, fruit, yeast and alcohol. A very spicy Belgian ale aroma.

Taste: Much like it smells, sweet and spicy with a strong alcohol presence. Fruity and yeasty with some citrus hops in the mix. A blend of many big flavors, but nonr of them overwhelming.

Mouth Feel: Medium bodied with medium creamy carbonation. Finishes semi-sweet on the tounge with a little alcohol burn.

Overall: A very heart Belgian strong ale with a lot of spice and fruit flavors, and a nice mix of hops in there, too. I liked this, and would buy it again for sure.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Have to compliment Surly on some very nice label art here, even by their own high standards.

A: Cloudy copper/brown with a light white head.
S: Sweet and fruity apple pear, Belgian yeast is very bold, brettanomyces mustiness floral hops. Excellent, the most enjoyable attribute of the beer for me.
T: Starts fruity and sweet again until brett cuts in pretty forcefully. Rustic and earthy. A little spice/roughness, which could either be the rye and/or the 12% abv? Just enough bitterness to cut the sweetness. Brett is a little agressive here for my tastes.... Finishes dry with a slight alcohol burn.
M: Body is full, with ample carbonation. Chewy, almost heavy.

Not bad, but seems the sum total doesn’t equal the parts. Heavy, a little dull and overbretted. Not something I would buy again.
