3.03/5 rDev -21.5%
This beer pours a clear, bubbly copper with a thin white head and no lace. The aroma is fruity and floral with caramel malt. The flavor is caramel and a bit of spice with orange notes. This beer has a lasting alcohol warmth and the mouthfeel is thick and syrupy. Exactly like cough medicine. Daves BrewFarm matacabras is a decent beer, recommended.

Interesting beer. Nice matured fruit tones are in abundance here, but they never get out of control. Carbonation bites a very tiny bit, but overall the feel is smooth. This is a good Belgian style ale that has some interesting (what seems like) Flemish character going on. I like it a lot and think it's very well executed for the style.

A-Deep burnt orange...whisp of creamy head
S-Sticky sweet malts with a bit of black pepper....yeasty....bready...nice...
T-I get a good dose of black pepper and anise....some cloves too..fruity (apples and pears)...some light breadiness...
M-High side of medium bodied...creamy...the peppery dimension keeps the sticky sweetness in check...
O-This is ok....not a big fan of the peppery/anise notes in this...well made beer just not my flavor profile...wouldn't buy again.

Sweet fruity spicey aroma with some brown sugar and hints of pepper and a hint of alcohol. Nice.
Copper/red amber. Pretty clear. Smallish head for style.
I bought a six pack about 1 month ago and the flavor has already changed some. Not quite as robust as the earlier bottles, but still flavorful and complex. The fruitiness has abated some and now is more malt forward. Nice tasty streak of alcohol. Dries out appropriately. Very faint hop. Nice spicy nip to the sip.
Moderate body and full carbonation.
I would say a bit of aging hasn't been friendly, so far, to this beer. So, drink it fresh. It's something special then.

Pouts a mahogany / chestnut brownish red color with a large head that leaves a nice lacing down the glass. Nose is lots of fruity Belgian yeast notes with some cereal malts in it. Taste is caramel malt up front that moves to some spicy rye. Fruity Belgian flavors - raisin, plum, candied sugar, come in next. Ends a little dry and fruity. Full, smooth body. Overall, this is a good BSDA. Fruity and sweet as it should be but very drinkable. First from Dave's farm and my interest is piqued.

Poured into a tulip.
Appeared a burnt orange/brown color with a light brown 2 finger head.
Smelled a bit sweet with a definite belgian yeast presence.
Sweet with a bit of chocolate and possible some apple mixed in.
Mouthfeel was carbonated well, no heat from the 8% at all.
Overall an interesting beer, but one I wouldn't seek out.
