12 oz can poured into oversized wine glass.

A: Pours a murky burnt orange / ruby with a finger of off white head.

S - Smells sweet and tart, like berries, with some Belgian funkiness.

T - I get sweet and tart raspberry, apricot, cherry, and Belgian yeast. This is a great flavor combo!

M - Sticky sweet, the body is thin-moderate, and the carbonation is moderate.

O - An interesting brew with a great fruity flavor profile. I really enjoyed this.

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

On tap at Hop City, Birmingham

A: A hazy burnt orange with an off-white, one-finger head that lingered. Decent lacing.

S: Light malts and fruity esters (apple and pear). Some spicy notes.

T: Smooth, sweet, light. Follows nose with those peppery spices added. A slight hop bitterness towards the finish. A good smooth example of the style. No complaints.

M: Medium with light to medium carbonation.

O: Could've been a bit more robust, but overall, a decent bier de garde.

2.89/5  rDev -18.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pours burnt orange with brown hues. A thin layer of tan froth fizzes and pops away quickly, but this means very little, so let's move along because the aroma is promising.

Smell is pleasant with notes of plum, wild berries, Belgian yeast, tea leaves and sugar. Tastes grainy with fruity notes (raspberry, plum) and tea. Nondescript and directionless. We're running out of time here folks.

Has a weak, watery body with an unappealing sourness at the end. If you're looking for redemption at this point you're not gonna find it.

Riding the fine line between drain pour and latent redemption that is never realized resides a beer that should probably throw in the towel before it finds itself falling off the ledge of no return for good.

A-This beer display a cloudy darkish red amber with a strong foamy head that fades quickly on the pour. Specs of hops can be visibly seen in the pour.

S- It has an nice light apple crisp like smell that is a little weaker than I'd personally like.

T-Light simple slow building hop finish that doesn't do much for my tongue

M-A nice stingy refreshing starter quickly shifts as it moves through the mouth to the back. Being a summer seasonal in Texas this is definitely it's strong point.

O-This beer has a nice appearance with a light smell, taste and mouthfeel that leaves the drinker refreshed without the overwhelming flavors some beers are known for.
