Notes/Commercial Description:
When most folks thing of Cape May they imagine Victorian Inns and parasols. Forget all that. Devil's Reach is a narrow passageway in Cape May Harbor and is a fitting name for this beer. Why you ask? The Devil's Reach is smooth and complex. It glides like a shark through the water and will swallow you whole. At 8.4% ABV, this Belgian is a beast.

3.23/5  rDev -19.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

a: Clear, sort of coppery golden; pours with a medium sized fizzy head.

s: Sugary for sure, some yeasty fruit and a touch of pepper. Very well disguised abv.

t: Pretty sweet up front, in a sugary way. Some fruity phenols and clove before a sugary finish.

m: Kinda thin for the abv.

o: A bit sweet but not bad overall. Reasonably priced I believe

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.25

A: Pours a pale unflitered yellow color with minimal head. Head retention is minimal and there is minimal lacing.

S: Citrus and spicy aroma.

T: Grapefruit and orange up front with farm spices on the back. Tastes like a strong Saison - really good.

M: Somewhat lacking carbonation but still good.

O: Great brew - and a good balance for flavor on a hot day.

Bottle from MrBarleywine
Pours a slightly hazy deep straw color with a decent sized quickly depleting bubbly white head. Aromas of lemon a sweet bread with a bit of yeasty funk. The flavor follows the aroma, sweet bready malt a bit of lemon and apple with a touch of alcohol and yeasty funk. Medium body light to moderate carbonation. Feels like a bit wit with maybe a bit of extra sweetness. I could drink this but nothing about it really wows me.
