Was considering opening this when I noticed I had already reviewed this on ratebeer. Yikes.
The beer is orange with minimal head. The imparts booze, hints of nail polish, odd. The flavor brings sweet nail polish and fruit. WTF? This beer is just weird and wrong. Rhubarb is there but doesn't fit in. Pass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a lighter golden color, with an immense, billowy white head. The head sits as a thick layer, leaving behind huge, craggy lacing.
Smell is very light with subtle sweet fruit aromas. Rather simple, but still very enjoyable.
Taste is just like the smell, with very subtle fruit flavors and a very light malt character. There is not enough going on, however, to combat the strong abv. The finish is hot with alcohol, with a boozy and acidic aftertaste.
Mouthfeel is good, thicker than you might expect, but seems to suit the beer.
Drinkability is poor, the alcohol really hurts things.
Overall, good potential, just way too hot. Maybe some cellar time would help to even things out.

It pours a brilliant gold color with a foamy white head that leaves some lacing.
The scent is mostly spices with some orange peel.
The flavor is big and malty. There are some nice fruit flavors and some spices, pretty basic and blunt.

Sent as an extra in a trade with tytoandersno...thanks tyler!
Split with a co-worker poured into a globe
Pours a hazy gold with a fairly large head. Smells of yeast and tropical fruit, tastes kind of a sweet fruity with a slight honey and large bread-y presence very belgian. Kind of light on the carbonation for the style and fairly light drinking. Overall good solid beer but not mind blowing.

Thanks to Jason for this top buzzed tick... milky murky honey gold with a nice white head... nose is very Belgian, Belgian yeast, cloves, and lots of herbs, not bad... the taste is honey, herbs and cloves, a honey gruit beer... not bad, just not my thing

Bottle. I had heard about this beer and brewery but this is my first time having this beer. C&C bottle. Poured into a tulip glass a slightly hazed medium copper yellow color with a 1/2 finger white head that settles to leave a slight coaster. Banana, vanilla, and bubblegum in the nose. Distinctly belgian in aroma, that’s for sure. Medium mouthfeel. Sweet, caramel, vanilla, honey like, banana, some spice, and hints of the alcohol round out the experience. Also get some apple and pear flavors. Overall, I like the flavors, but it’s a tad sweet and the bubblegum notes, at least for me, semi domintate this. The 10% also warms and lets you know it there.

Huge thanks to LaCoursiere for hooking me up with this bottle:
A: Pours a nice translucent gold. There is a thin white head, but very little lacing.
S: I'm picking up some definite Belgian yeast, some honey and some mild fruits. I also notice some apple juice notes. There is a noticeable alcohol aroma as well.
T: The taste is slight malt, honey, and alcohol. The Belgian yest is unmistakable in this one, and the alcohol is pronounced throughout. At 10%, I'm not exactly surprised either.
M: Nice carbonation up front that quickly fades. The flavors of this beer coat the palate and linger for some time. This is definitely a sipping beer.
O: I'm glad to have tried it, but I wouldn't seek it out the next time I visit Minnesota. It's a good beer and one that might be enjoyed more by someone who loves Belgian Ales.
