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.

Smoky, lingering notes on the nose. Great drinking beer. Rich amber/brown color. Smooth and creamy but plenty of flavors in there to keep you busy guessing. At 9.3% ABV, it could be a dayender or a nice launch for the evening... 2nd bottle even better.

Reviewer's note: goes very well with an aged cheddar! Love the rich caramel brown color, too.

12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy deep orange copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, candi sugar, clove, pepper, bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and balanced malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, candi sugar, clove, pepper, bubblegum, herbal, floral, grass, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of banana, pear, apple, white grape, honey, biscuit, toast, clove, bubblegum, and herbal/yeast earthiness on finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of fruity/earthy yeast with balanced bready/candi sugar malt sweetness; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly slick/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Belgian strong golden ale. All around good complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and bready/candi sugar malt sweetness; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.
