look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Pours a hazy golden color. Nice mix of yellow and orange, and I can't tell if it's chill haze, or just haze, but I think it's a bit of yeast haze, because it didn't really clear up throughout the drink, but I can still see through the beer. The head is thin and white, not very dense, but it actually stays around a bit and leaves a little lacing. Kind of normal for the belgian pale style. The smell has a few dominant characteristics, all of which are interesting. First, there's a kind of fruity, sugary, bubble gum flavor, partially from nice fruity esters, and partially from the candy sugar (I assume) that gets used in this one, but it's really powerful in the nose at first. That subsides to a deep spiciness, I mean really spicy, earthy and pungent, herbal, kind of leafy, almost like burning leaves, with a hint of grass clippings. You can really smell a bit of malty sweetness, not quite bready, but sweet, mixed in with a bit of yeasty tartness. The taste starts out like chewing on fruity gum, thanks to some esters and a bit of sweetness, but that falls back quickly into this sticky, earthy taste. The malt comes in, a bit toasty and crackery, but there's this uncontrollable earthy spiciness in there. It's just herbal, leafy, and almost burnt with the hops and the spicy yeast combining - the yeast is actully a bit tart as well as spicy, somewhere between Saison yeast and Belgian Pale yeast. The malt presence comes in at different intervals, like cookies, and also a bit like powdery, starchy grains in different places. There's also a bit of a burnt sugar type taste to it. Overall, it's really a great Belgian Pale, perhaps leaning the furthest towards that earthy spiciness of any I've ever had. The body is actually very sticky and full from the malt and hops combining. The carbonation is nice and lively, crisp, and accented by the moderate dryness of the beer. The only thing is that the earthiness can wear on you thanks to that dryness, but I really find myself enjoying it. Not the easiest to drink, it's actually a bit challenging, though thoroughly enjoyable. I would definitely buy it again, but could not make it a beer I drink often, despite how much I enjoy it. I would recommend to anyone.

3.79/5 rDev -0.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75
Rich, golden hued body topped with a decent, white head. Fine sediment and plenty of carbonation.
Simple, pleasant, and sweet. Grains, banana, and Belgian yeast with hints of honey and citrus. The occasional prune note.
Plenty of spicing and alcohol from beginning to end with a subtle sweetness. Banana bread, toasty malt, and corriander. Belgian yeast. Bubble gum character.
Has a bite but it's crisp. A dry finish and medium body, plenty of carbonation.
A solid belgian style ale but far from my favorite.

3.13/5 rDev -17.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. No abv listed on the label either, but by the looks of things, this beer is contract brewed by the Milwaukee Brewing Co., for Furthermore Beer. Whatever. I got this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local beer store.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Pours a nice bright orange colored body with three fingers of big bubbly off-white head with pretty underwhelming retention, especially given the style. Some nice fat streaks of lacing on the glass. Looks alright.
S - Smell is of earthy musty grains, funky yeast, alcohol fumes, brown bread, some nuttiness, and some mild banana / clove spice.
T - Taste is of bready malt, grains / grass / earth, slight hint of sticky caramel, booze heat, brettanomyces, cloves, light banana, & some kind of syrupy sweetness.
M - Feel is sticky, bready, and dry with some mild alcohol fumes on the finish. Medium bodied with high, bloating carbonation.
Overall, I'd say it was a drinkable endeavor, but certainly not something I would want for repeat drinking. It grew on me as I drank it, but I guess there was a bit too much sweetness, and too much carbonation for me to find enjoyable. In all, it was alright.
