16.9oz : Teku

Clear, deep garnet colored body with a thin, bubbly light tan head.

Sweet, candi sugars upfront, some molasses, very faint Belgian yeast and dark fruit. Nice, but a bit subdued/one dimensional.

The taste is similar to the nose. Nothing offensive, and some good points, but really lacking in any complexity and fails to leave me with really wanting more.

Medium-thin body, mild foamy carbonation.

As stated above, nothing unpleasant, but also nothing particularly well done either and left me with no real desire to even finish the whole bottle.

500mL from Belmont Station.

A: Brown with red tints. Head rapidly forms into a bubbly crest and then recedes into nothingness. Decent legs.

N: Raisin, toffee, prune, bubble gum, clove, coriander, and a hint of banana. A little bit of smokiness. Lots of esters. Pretty good approximation of a Belgian, albeit not quite as smooth around the edges.

T: Biscuity, slightly bitter, and moderately sweet. A bit light on the flavor, but what flavors it does have blend together well.

M: Somewhat watery. A little bit sticky, and alcohol exhibits itself.

O: A much better beer than a number of Crux bottles I’ve opened. It lacks that deep complexity of its Belgian forbears as well as the luxurious mouthfeel, but I’d be willing to try this again.

3.64/5  rDev -2.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: Pours dark amber / light brown with a small beige head that fades quite quickly.
S: Smell of caramel malts, toffee, some dark fruits and soaked fruits with some fruity esters and yeasts aromas. Nice.
T: The taste is not as rich as foreseen from the nose, mainly malty, but with lots of phenolic flavors and a herbal scent which is a bit disturbing, somehow medicinal. Does not last very long on the palate.
M: Medium bodied with a low carbonation. This makes this ale a bit cloying given the bottle is 500ml.
O: Quite a well made Belgian strong ale, true to the style, pleasant from the nose, but not really exciting after all. Enjoyable but quite forgettable.
