3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place in (near) St. Louis, MO. What a gusher. Took two glasses to absorb it. Pours hazy light amber with a truly humongous light bubbly off-white head. Aromas include a lot of yeast, some citrus, and a little malt. Darn’d if it don’t seem a bit soapy. So what aroma soap, not sure. Medium body with rather smooth carbonation. Flavor is really spicy hop over malt. Rather peppery. Something like grapefruit rind. Slight burn down the gullet. This one is just so out of control. A bit of barnyard seems to be present. An exciting adventure from start to finish. Almost genteel after it settles down for awhile. Good ale. Really.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl fresh bottle at home. BB may 1st, 2011, sampled nov 5th 2009.
cap came off almost by itself with a huge POP , my hand was forcibly moved up from the bottle by the explosion. not much beer was spilled as i poured quickly, however, with more than half the beer in a glass fluffy head still lava’s out of the neck of the bottle. I advise the use of napkins, glasses and earplugs when opening this one.
Unclear orange with lots of debris of different sizes. very fluffy almost white but offwhite head.
nice bitterhoppy aroma, not very strong, but a lot more "american" than your usual belgian beer. A little spicyness too.
flavor is floral, spicy, bitterhoppy, as well as a little pine and grapefruity from hops. ends fruity and bitterhoppy.
I would’ve rated it a bit higher if it didn’t almost explode upon opening. Also looks bad with the debris and the fluffy head.
