3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750mL c&c thanks to tastybeer. Gusher. Pours a glowing, light orange with a modest white head. No head. Nose is gold raisins, licorice, yeast phenols, intense orange mint. Taste is pretty doughy with sourdough bread and Biere de Garde maltiness moving to some light fruity tartness. Licorice is present, apricot, fuller bread and small vanilla. Mild soap. Nice understated balance. Richer, full bready palate.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle (from the november 2005 RB-tasting at Dixens place - notes have been damaged by flooding of my basement, but this was such an insane tasting for me as I was new to such massive tastings, so I gave up on the detailed notes quite early). Moldy (as is the notes), elements of paint. Ordinary in flavour. Thats all the thats readable from the notes...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale golden pour with decent offwhite head. VERY cakey sweet vanilla and candi sugar. Extremely sweet, kinda reminded me of like an old english barleywine or really like a wheat wine with lots of yeast. Wasn’t that impressed actually

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: glowing orange body with honey folds and a huge 3 finger slightly off white crown...this one gushed! Some retention and minimal lace.
Smell: candied orange, wheat, coriander, and a touch of alcohol.
Taste: Wheat and candied orange throughout with some hop bitterness sneaking in at the end.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and chewy with just enough carbonation on the finish.
Drinkability: Not bad considering the strength.
This one held up fairly well considering its a double wit that has 4+ years on it.
Serving type: bottle
