A - Ruby/Brown

S - Sick dark ass fruits and caramel

(A) Pours a hazy light orange with very minimal head.

(S) Orange and other citric acids. Some yeast, wheat and some mild spice.

(T) A lot like the nose. Wheat grass, orange, lemon, citrus and kind of acidic.

(M) Light body. Very carbonated. Acidic. Ends dry

(O) It was good but a little too carbonated for me. I think with some more balance it would be top notch. Definitely doesn't drink like a 12% beer.

Big foamy white head on this one with a nice golden colored body. The smell of this beer has some good Belgian yeast aromas with some bread and some spicy notes also. The taste of the beer is nice with a good amount of grainy flavors with some soft banana flavors in there. The mouthfeel of the beer was smooth with some light carbonation in there. Overall this beer wasn't too bad, I would like to try it again someday.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Bottled in 2010.

(A)- Pours a cloudy orange color. Some whispy white froth and lace.

(S)- A nice mellow yeasty lemon and banana. Some clay-like earth in there too. Even bits of biscuit and orange citrus in there too.

(T)- A big burst of bubbly citrus (orange, lemon, white grape, and pear). Plenty of earthy yeast and biscuit bits.

(M)- An enormous carbonation level; way too high actually. Though after that, there are some nicely integrated flavors in this. At the same time, I was shocked to see what the ABV level of this was; 12%?! sure fooled me!

(D)- A solid little beer. If the carbonation level was not so robust, this would get top marks for the style, though I bet this is just divine with a few years on it.
