Had On-tap @ Capitol Beer and Taproom in Sacramento, CA

Appearance - Served in a pint, the brew has a reddish copper tint with a half finger of head. Fair retention leads to a broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is mall and spotty, and leaves little stick.

Smell - Belgian yeast is apparent, as the sourness is prominent; also green banana and clove notes. Brown sugar. Caramel.

Taste - Follows the nose; strong belgian yeast character with some funky tartness, green banana and clove spice. Moderate sugary sweetness, teetering on caramel character. No real hop presence, outside a very faint, distant citrus note in the finish, but the finish is all about the emergence of caramel.

Mouthfeel - Medium body with a sticky feel. Low to medium carbonation. Goes down easy enough.

Overall - A good, near spectacular belgian brown. Reminiscent of a dunkelweizen in flavor, but with more tartness. Portions of the proceeds from this brew go toward breast cancer research, so it's a win-win all around.

Reviewed from notes taken at the source last week in SD. Said Treasure Chest Belgian Brown but here it says Pale Ale...

A- Dark red and brown bodied with an off white head. Creamy foamy texture to the cap and decent retention. Legs and spotty lace from a nice ring atop the brew.

S- Reminds me of an English brown here in ways, nutty and caramelized sugar malts, brown sugar, raisin, toasted toffee but some fruity Belgian yeast to distinguish.

T- Belgian yeast comes to life with a toasted malty caramel grain base. Has Trappist hints with raisin, dark fruits, cloves, phenols and some pepper, citrus zest. Candi sugar comes to mind.

MF- Foamy moderate carbonation and a creamy texture on the palate. Finishes somewhat spicy with a moderate body that works well with the flavors.

English brown malty feel and good Belgian yeast base. Flavors work well together in a style that I wouldn't mind seeing more of.
