Darker than average, with an auburn turn on the pale-Golden elixir that we are all familiar with. Suffice to say that this one is cloudier than Dan Shelton's logic insofar as portfolio construction is concerned. ;)

Nose is musty; Yeast, dead and rotting leaves, tannins, oak… buried beneath mounds of black dirt. Appealing only to those with enough sense to forge ONWARD!

First sip says it all: stale and doughy yeast, dark, sun-ripened fruit and the long-forsaken fruits of summer, at that. Not pleasant, not good, but still intriguing.

Drinkable, but only barely

Not a bad mouthfeel.

This is probably a GREAT beer when sampled fresh, and I want to say: "Not bad, overall:, and yet… this sample bottle is just too far past its prime.

*Edit: This example was clearly old and oxidized, tasting as much like a 3 year-old Tripel as a 3 year old Doppelbock. Nichts so Gut!

Pours a slightly hazy gold, one finger thick dense creamy white head with a spray of lace left behind. Smell: honey, lightly bready, fruity with pear and orange marmalade, clove note. Taste: pear, white toast with a smear of peach jam, assertive spiciness and clove with grape skin and peppery finish. Fine carbonation and the body is well balanced with up-front heft and a long drying and spiced finish.

From a bottle.

This nice ale, a first for me from this brewery, pours a hazy light yellow with a dash of amber
in there with nice tight beaded white bubbled head and frothy lacing. Nose of coriander,
yeasty goodness, Belgian candy sugars, herbal hops, and a light lemon grass aroma. This is
rather complex in nose and taste. Flavors are Belgian candy on the front with a light lively
mouthfeel. Coriander and lemon grass dance about with a light sourness that is far from
unpleasant with a dry finish and very light bitter aftertaste. Almost a Belgian sweet tart, this
ale expands in flavors as it warms making a re-review certainly coming in the future. Very nice.
