Deep gold, clear, off-white head. Aroma: rotten vegatables, medicinal notes. Flavor: grainy malt, medicinal, cough-syrup, carboard, perfumy notes. This is a 10-year old bottle and may have gone bad.

BOSSbrewer (2249) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 7, 2013
I had it well chilled mad didnt agitate it but the bottle was a gusher. I ended up with about three sips in the glass. Poured a hazy golden with, obviously, enormous head. Some lacing. Very yeasty aroma. Grapefruit also. Tasted somewhat sour and tart. Fairly bitter. Some wet dog and cardboard. Medium bodied and finishes dry. From other reviews I think I got a bad bottle.

jookos (3078) - FINLAND - SEP 28, 2013
Draught. Orange dark peachy hazy. Nose has pretty nice fruity orange marmalade maltyness. Some yeastyness also. Fullbodied, a bit.. sour in flavour. Bready doughy yeastyness, not that nice at all. Feels really homebrewy with unclean yeasty fermentation by-products, doughy stuff.
