This was Rockbottom's first tapping of 2011.
I am a fan of this Belgian style of beer and made sure I was here for this night.

Beer was served in a curvy, tulip style glass, in which you find many of Belgium's rose and kriek style beers.

The beer was a rich brown/amber color when poured and like most beers, at this particular brewery, served with no head.

I was unable to smell any distinct flavors and was not anything I was too familiar with, in this style of beer. First taste seemed a little watered down, but as it sat on the palate you notice a warm taste with some fruity and toasted notes. The beer went down very smooth and gentle, making it an extremely easy beer to consume all night. However, I suggest being cautious, despite it's easy drinkability the 7.5% ABV can you by surprise halfway through your second round.

Overall, despite the lack of smell and presentation/looks, the beer was alright and would order it again if available.

Beer served in a lofty becher tulip. Beer is ruby / brown with a slight haze and a thin haloed head.

Beer smells spicy / estery and strong.

Beer is quite estery, it dominates, there is almost a bubblegum flavor to the whole thing. It tastes OK, there is almost no bitterness but there is nothing special about it either. I wouldn't have ti again. The esters are pretty much the only thing that is going on in there.

Dark amber with reddish tones. Solid little capper. Lots of visible effervescence. 3.5

Cotton candy, bubble gum, artificial watermelon, strawberry, and light caramel in the nose. A little weird and sweet. 4.0

Brandied fruits, medicinal flavors (cough syrup?), strange orange flavor, fake chocolate, soap, amber lager, and booze. Terrible. Off-the-map and off-putting. 1.5

Thin for the style. Sharp carb. Boozy as hell. Rough. 2.0

Regrettable order at the bar. No-go. 2.0
