This beer kinda reminds me of Maudite by Unibroue. I never cared very much for that beer. Something in the vein of overly ripe fruit: dark spots on bananas, squishy spots on nectarines. The malt character makes me think of ingredients that may have been sitting around just a little too long. The notion of brewing with an exotic ingredient as the focal point makes me curios about further offerings from this brewery. All the same, I'm glad I was able to buy just one 12 ounce bottle without having to commit to a six pack of this stuff.

A-pours a clear amber color with an off white head with nice retention and leaves great lacing
S-cocoa, biscuit, almonds with no hop presence
T-more cocoa and biscuit with some slight nuttiness throughout with hops providing balance but not lending to the flavor
M-medium bodied with average carbonation
O-an interesting take on the style, worth trying but probably won't buy again

From the 355 ml. bottle. Sampled on April 3, 2014.

The pour is medium amber with a slightly cloudy look to it, busy carbonation, and a lingering cream colored head that becomes a ring.

There is some aroma here with the toasted biscuit malts, spices, pear or apple, and a slight hop bite.

Medium and smooth body.

I think it is nutmeg that I really get as the lead herbal/spice taste along with the caramel malts, mild but meaty fruitiness, and slight hop finish. It does have the basic characteristics of a Belgian blonde and I enjoyed it.

A: The beer is clear amber orange in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short off white head that quickly died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles in the center of the glass and a collar around the edge.
S: Moderate aromas of Maca root are present in the nose along with some notes of fruity yeast and candi sugar.
T: The taste has flavors of malty root vegetables with bits of sweetness from the candi sugar and hints of fruity yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The Maca root definitely lends unusual aromas and flavors to this beer. It was interesting and while not undrinkable, I didn't really find it to be my cup of tea. Apart from the Maca root, the underlying beer tastes a like a hybrid between a Belgian Pale Ale and a Dubbel.

Yellow to copper pour with a white foam head. Scents were of malt and bit of fragrance\spice aroma. The flavor to me was a bit medicinal (mouthwash) and had a slight bitterness in the finish. This was a light feel and easy drinking ale. But I'm just not that impressed. Still on the fence with Kuka. This was an okay beer.
