75 cl pour

Pours a slightly hazy brown, red tint, with a fine off-white head that retains well.

Smells of biscuit malt with a bretty tartness and some grape sweetness.

Flavor is of molasses, fig, wine grapes, esters, and grassy malts.

Full body with a stinging carbonation on the tongue.

A very good Belgian style ale with a lot of complex flavor and a great aroma. Probably the best of my samples at Oast and worth seeking out for my money.

Bottle at Tequilla Bookworm. Cherry brown coloured body with lace and some head. Above average carbonation. Aroma of malts and mild spice. Belgian yeast, coriander,licorice, chocolate. Only a hint of hops, which is why it was true to style from the sample I have had from the style.

Well done Oast... well done. I've been waiting for a local Ontario brewery to give a Belgian style beer a try and you've done us proud.

Pours a dark chestnut brown with a decent head and some lacing as the beer goes down.
Aroma is sweet and malty with banana bread and cherries. Tastes of sweet Belgian candy malts, cherry, light rum soaked fruits... great stuff. Easily competes with some of my other favourite Unibroue and Belgian-style beers.

Refreshing considering the 9% abv. Mouthfeel is smooth...Some light bitterness in the dry-like aftertaste.

An excellent beer... I just wish the price also competed with some of my other favourite beers... at $11 for a 750mL bottle, I won't make this my go-to beer, but I'll keep a couple of bottles for special occasions.
