Pours a beautiful deep orange/amber color into a typical pint glass with plenty of off white color head. Looks to have plenty of carbonation as well. The smell reminds me of a pale ale. Initial taste is quite boozy but definitely has that amber ale flavor. Actually the boozy feel lasts through the tasting process. I did learn while enjoying this brew that if you let it sit out and warm up a little bit while drinking that the boozy taste eventually becomes just a warming feeling.

The best Roy Pitz beer I've had. It packs some funky belgian spice and fruitiness with a pretty good texture. Not out of the world, but very drinkable American Belgo.

Thanks to Stater for this one.

Poured into a snifter.

Look- deep reddish copper with a few soapy looking hazy bubbles, forming a halo around the inside of the glass.

Smell- Caramel, dark brown sugar, dates, figs, candied orange peel and cherry essence.

Taste- A bit of funk, and some dark sugar, then rises quickly to a briny kalamata olive saltiness. Olive tang hangs out on the palate, and never gets back to sweet.

Feel- Syrupy with a thin bubbly tickle on the palate and throat.

Overall- not sure how old this one is, or if it really is this briny all the time. I would like to try a super fresh one to compare. Decent though, plenty of characteristics for the style, just not as sweet as I expected. Pairs great with some spicy food.

Cheers!
