Dull amber-copper and clear. The foam was very thick on this one. The aroma has plasticy phenols and a light dusting of spice. Dry and spicy character, with coriander and dried flowers, alongside some dusty yeast. Only a slight hint of alcohol late, with sweet malts.

750 c&c from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours hazy dark gold with a foamy/creamy 4 finger off-white head. Aromas of citrus, yeast/spice, a soupçon of earth. Maybe pineapple? Med body. It is pleasant, earthy, yeasty, and citrusy bitter? Or herby bitter? Really quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle… Clear golden ale with a huge, frothy, white head. Great retention. The bouquet is a swirl of bread dough, biscuit, plum and faint clove. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with prickly carbonation. The flavor is a bittersweet medley of fruitcake and cookie dough. Finishes crisp and bready with mild, lingering bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge, fluffy, whipped-eggwhitelike, yellowish head, leaving lacerings over bright, if veiled orange beer. Herbal, garden herbs and malty nose, fresh-smelling. Light-bitterish citrus, very yeasty flavours, estery; finish is herbal-bitterish. Slight, near-hidden restsweetness with flavours of mandarine- or curaçaopeel. Medium bodied, quite slick, and head texture present throughout. Quite good beer... Txs to K.! 27 Unitedstaters and 1 Québecois, would appear I really got hold of a rare one! The Ursel Connection...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly disturbing label. This beer is a hazy amber-orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bananas, yeast and bread. Medium body with flavors of banana primarily, plus some other sweet fruit. Notes of yeast and bready malt as well. The finish is grain and yeast. Slightly above average overall.
