Pours languidly into a tumbler glass, hard to generate much of a head, but there was about an eighth of an inch there momentarily. Foam quickly subsides, leaving a thin ring around the edges, no lacing. Tawny amber orange color, somewhat hazy.

Bubblegum and clove aromas, kind of a stereotypical "Belgian" aroma.

Spicy flavors, big on the phenolics, lasting clove in the aftertaste, low level pepper bitterness. Viscous body, low carbonation. Not a fan of the mouthfeel, a bit slick and coating, needs more carbonation. Overall not a total waste, it's not deeply flawed, just not appealing to personal taste. However i'm not sure about finishing it.

Thanks for this one Eric!

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Another new beer to me from Greenbush Brewing Co., this one listed as a Belgian Strong Pale Ale.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a dark burnt orange colored body with some nice sediment floating in the glass. Three fingers of beige foam for a head that falls to about a finger. Fat spotty lacing. For some reason, I thought it would be lighter in color, but it looks very nice.

S - Smell is comprised of the usual suspects - candied caramel maltiness, Belgian yeast, banana, clove, dough, pepper. A simple, yet pleasant aroma.

T - The taste follows the nose - candied sugars, caramel, green apple, pear, banana, white grape. Lots of lovely yeast derived fruitiness on this one. It's very nice, but I was hoping for more grassy / herbal flavors. No alcohol heat or burn; the 9.30% abv is extremely well hidden.

M - The feel is slightly heavy. Dry on the finish. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation. Some lingering fruitiness / stickiness on the palate. Very easy drinking for the high abv.

Overall, a nicely done but average representation of the style from Greenbush. Doesn't really bring anything new or exciting to the table, but it's certainly enjoyable and very drinkable.

Greenbush 1825 ---4/5.

12 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Pours a copper color, somewhat cloudy, with a small head and foamy cling. Smells of belgian yeast, candi sugar, malt, a bit earthy. Taste also leads with the yeast, malt, some caramel. Getting some type of spicing, can't put a finger on. A little sweet up front, followed by a little bitterness, not sure if it's from the spicing or what, doesn't seem like it's from hops. Smooth, good body, nicely carbonated.

Have had a number of bottles over the last year or two and have liked all better than the one I finally write a review on. Whatever that spicing is, I noticed it a lot more in this bottle, and it's kind of a negative. Still, well worth a purchase.
