3.55/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Clear, deep amber with a massive, dense off-white head, with superb retention. The carbonation is slight, Belgian-style lacing adorns the glass walls.

Aroma: Grassy hops vie with adundant toasted malt for a simple but very pleasant aroma.

Taste: Strong grassy and herbal hops up front, with an understated toasted malt presence. Later in the taste, the hops turn earthy with a lingering bitterness which utterly vanquishes the toasted malt. Finishes with a lingering earthy and metallic hop note.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, very pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Far too biased towards the hops for my taste, nonetheless, replendent with the quality and craftsmanship that Real Ale is noted for.

Presentation: Packaged in a standard twelve-ounce brown glass long neck bottle with a pry-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at HEB in Texas in April, 2013 for $8.99/six-pack.

3.58/5  rDev -4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Chilled 12 oz. longneck into a shaker pint. Bottling date 8.7.13.

Look- Medium amber with an orange hue. Thick, creamy off-white head. Good retention, very nice lacing.

Smell- Surprisingly herbal, dark rye bread, a little fusel. Nutty, dark fruit.

Taste- Like the nose, very hoppy for an alt. Nonetheless, very tasty and malt-driven. Nutty, full toasty flavor throughout with some golden raisin. Herbal bittering pushes through after the sip, finishing with a dry honeyed biscuit and peppermint-black tea.

Mouthfeel- Smooth, full, almost creamy. Moderate carbonation. Chalky finish, very clean. Trace of booziness, feels fitting.

Overall- Definitely in the sticke category, but more assertive than you'd expect with the hops. Style- meh, but it's pretty darn good. I'd like to see more like this on the Texas market.

3.79/5  rDev +1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle pours a hazed chestnut color with a modest cap of light tan head. Average retention and little lace.

Nose is nutty, hazelnuts actually with some toffee maltiness.

Taste is pretty good, it has a nice nutty quality without any harsh tannin/toast bitterness. Its on the malty side but still manages to stay pretty dry. Reminds me of a good Dunkel mixed with an English Brown Ale. Im not hating the fact I only got a single of this, but I also dont think Id have had much trouble finishing a sixer.

12oz, BBD 8/7/13
Riedel tulip

A: Dark orange leading to amber. Thin layer if loose bubbled off white head. Not a ton of head. Carbonation seems low.

S: Nice light biscuit malt hints. Slightly nutty. Grassy grainy notes. Pulling those noble hops, even through the malt backbone.

T: Some nice hop character greets you up from. Certainly more of the Noble hop flavor. Some of those grassy grainy flavors. Sweet malt backbone meets it there. Pulling some of those nutty flavors. They hit the German style in the head. Seems like a fall-ish style beer. Finish is slightly dry.

M: Lighter side of medium.
