COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
5 Season's special brew originally made to celebrate July 1, 2004 (the date Georgia officially lifted the limit on alcohol in beer). A classic, light-colored but full-bodied and complex beer in the Trappist/Abbey style.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of finely sized bubbles that was mostly lasting and left behind a semi-hazy softly carbonated dark orange brown colored body and a fair lacing. The strong aroma was hoppy malty and vinous. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish hoppy aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops and hops. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

Snifter at brewery - Aroma is pungent bread dough, lemon zest, candi sugar, alcohol and spice. Pours hazy orange with a lasting medium head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with the alcohol being hidden very well. Palate is smooth and syrupy for 10.2%. Very nice brew

Big yeasty and wheat aromas and tastes. Those flavors predominate with some slight fruits in the aromas and tastes. Malt to coat the mouth.

Last HWOH- shared by RLB. Thanks. I love 5 seasons and usually most of their beers are phenomenal. This one was good but pretty standard for a tripel actually. Has a slight solvent aroma along with the fruity esters, light phenols, clove, and even some DMS. Flavor is herbal, somewhat sweet, yeasty, plastic-like phenols, and an alcohol apparent finish. Ok overall.

Small tan head, lasting, stringy lace is droopy. Hazy gold hued brew. Nose of alcohol greets you, with notes of berries, citrus, caramel and toffee. Body is medium, lightly oily. Alcohol flavors up front, getting moreso as it warms up. Caramel malt, pepper and some fruity notes on the palate and a bit of grainy malt. Unfortunately the alcohol is the big player here. Finish is fairly dry and lightly spicey. Thanks to captaincougar for the trade, thanks Tom!

Thanks to RLB for sharing this at the HW open house. Hazy dark golden color with a small white head. Very sweet caramel malt aroma and flavor with the alcohol quite prevalent. Some candi sugar and tart, dried apricots as well.

egajdzis (5370) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of green apples, cherries, toffee, light spices, and citrus fruits. Taste of much of the same, it was yeasty, with light alcohol popping through in the end.

eaglefan538 (2901) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 30, 2006
Thanks to Bert for this one and the time to have a few together. Pours initially with a nice head with fair retention. Aroma is heavy alcohol and some spicing. The flavor was caramel, especially as it warmed, apples/cider, other light fruits, and with a yeasty (perhaps hoppy too) bitter finish. Again, alcohol was pretty sharp,the biggest downfall of this beer. Medium mouthfeel with average carbonation. An enjoyable beer, but not a star.

big thanks to cmubeerman for sharing this. this was pretty damned awesome. a bit on the flat side, but more than enough - especially given that itís been sealed in a swingtop for months. almost no alcohol, and i hardly remember any more details. the numbers were scored at the time of drinking, however.

Aroma is tons of apple juice alcohol, a little candy sugar, and some vinegar stuff. pungent nonetheless. Flavor: Mustiness, alcohol, old candy sugar. Some wood and yeast. Lots of shit going and iím not sure that it is supposed to. ehhhhh yeah, just ok. Big thanks to cmubeerman for getting this from some guy.
