GABF 2007. Poursto a hazy yellow body with a very thin white head. The aroma is funky fruits and yeast laden malts. Tart pineapple. Very interesting malts/hops/yeasts/beasties. The flavor is a yeasty pale malt with some funky fruits. The palate is medium bodied, creamy and tart. Belgian.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 29, 2007
Tap at Spuyen Duyvil. Hazy pink tinted amber brew with lots of suspended yeast. Soft tartness, with lemon, soft sweet earthiness and loads of vanilla. A bit of cherry/berryish sweet fruitness. The normal sweetness of this beer is really tempered by the aging and the soft tartness. The barrel really comes through with soft vineous notes, vanilla/tapioca. Wheaty and spicy with the normal yeast phenols making themselves apparent on the back. As it warms a honeyish character really starts to assert itself. Great balance with the sweet/tart character really playing off of the yeasty spice. Nice to see something this good and sad to know that I won’t see it again.

Tap @ SD. Poured a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Amazing aroma of yeasty funk. Leather, strong vanilla and a hint of cherry. Light malt flavor quickly followed by acidic citrus, leather and a dry Belgian yeasty finish. Nice warmth in the chest.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Sample @ EBF, 2/2007. Pours a dark yellow with a lacy head. Aroma is largely of cherry with slight oak and yeast characteristics. Taste is big cherry with some oak, yeast, banana, and clove included (there IS a tripel somewhere in there, after all). Very good.

glkaiser (1214) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2007
On tap at Uber in Seattle. Hazy dark golden, big off white head. Sour cherry aroma. Taste of sour cherry mixed with a little nutty oak. Alcohol isn’t over the top. Not overly sweet. Thank you Uber...

Bottle @ Beer Chef Dinner in San Francisco (5-25-07). We enjoyed this one during the third course. A hazy yellow orange color. Cherry flavors with a hint towards a Rodenbach triple. Nicely tart with a light sour finish compliments the banana, lemon and wine flavors.
