3.18/5 rDev -16.8%

Pours a white head. Color is a bright golden orange.
Aroma: A lot of fruits. Oranges and pomegranate. French oak with rye spice. Wine flavors. Belgian yeast, bananas, and cloves.
Taste: Mimics the nose, but it is very yeasty and bready. Reminds me of an amped up wheat beer.
Mouthfeel: Dry and spiced. Medium bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. Ends really dry.
Overall, a unique beer. Not a quad in my book. No clue as to what this really is, style-wise. But, I kind of like it. Somewhat drinkable.
Serving type: bottle

Amazing. Belgian yeast (actually a pretty light touch) along with some strong sweetness from the malt. Sweet like a good barleywine would be, a sweetness that seems totally natural in this context. Most beers that are in the style don't choose to go so sweet, but for this beer it really, really works. Absolutely my new favorite.
Serving type: on-tap
