On Tap at Barcade in Philly For Beer Week 2012

A- Zakuza liquid resembles a bright golden color with some yellow within. This one is alive as about 3 fingers of dense white foam steadily rose. Excellent lacing, thick and coating.

S- I was kind of dissapointed in the smell on first sniffs as I got a hay/barnyard scent which was one sided. This opened up quickly though, with a bunch of fruits with apples up front. A good amount of spices with cloves centerstage. Some belgian yeast rounds this out.

T- Zakuza is a nice mix of both spices and fruit with Belgian yeast in between. Clove really shines with apples and pears coming through. Getting some bananers as well. Some hops in here but are not up front. A nice bready malty background.

M- The feel gets better with some warmth but as is, this is creamy and refreshing. The alcohol is barely noticable, well hidden. This one glides down with no distractions. A nice spicy aftertaste. Just dont drink it too cold.

D- My only regret is that drank it too quickly. Put off by the odor at first I was very surprised at the outcome. Very refreshing and tasty. It's high in alcohol but what the hell.

On tap at Novare Res into a 25 cL Allagash glass on 12/15/11.

a: Golden, opaque, small white head with decent retention and reasonable lacing.

s: Mostly hops and a floral charatcter.

t: Besides the hoppy charatcter, which is apparent up front, there is an herbal, almost green tea-like quality, maybe a little citrus.

m: Crisp, rather light-bodied, good amount of carbonation.

o: Fantastic beer, awesome. Hope to find this in bottles (though I believe people were saying that you cannot). Highly recommend.
