Poured from a fresh 6-er. I've been drinking this beer for 10 years and I've gone through loving it and hating it. I think its certainly unique and I respect it as a very tasty brew.
A- nice clean beer with a wonderful amber color. Head is sparkling white.
S- um, this is my one qualm - smells a bit like a bad heineken. Just not enticing and slightly sharp and sour.
T- really love the belgian overtones here combined with the caramel notes. Pretty darn unique flavor that spans a couple of styles. I find it difficult to call this an amber ale. Finishes well dryer than an amber/red and than I seem to remember it from years past.
M- tasty and well carbonated.
O- Great job. Good for one 12 oz beer, but not much more. Wish we could work on the aroma a bit.
