sloth (2688) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - SEP 17, 2005
Pours an amber/orange color with a medium sized tan cap that leaves minimal lacing. Nose of medium sweet malts, banannas and dark fruits. Body is medium, palate is lightly oily. Mildly sweet malt flavors, dark fruits, fig, a hint of raisin and bananna plus a nice underlying spiceyness. Finish is almost dry, fruity. Nice. A tad pricey though.

Bottle. Apricot in the aroma, for sure. Aroma doesn’t really grab you i have to say, but its pleasant. Palate is sweet, and a touch sticky. Apricot and then pepper and spices, a little bit estery in the aftertaste, with touches of banana and mandarin, and the apricot still remains. Quite good, but i was hoping for better.

PorterPounder (6523) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2005
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Rerate Pick up a lot more spiciness this time around , ginger and saffron - overall - same rating. Original 3.5 Marcello’s Wine Market - Baton Rouge, La. - 750 ml bottle. Pours a murky light orange with absolutely no head. Aroma has a fruity quality to it - some pears, peaches and nectarines, quite pleasant. Flavor a little bit sweet and a little bit sour. Odd fruitiness to it - kind of reminds me of kiwis with a back end of sour grapes. Slighlty refreshing, reminds me somewhat of DFH Old Midas with its grape leaves things going. Mouthfeel is slightly spritzy and slighlty thick. Very decent, and odd.

Dorqui (2154) - Brescia, ITALY - JUL 15, 2005
Dense and adherent foam, optimal persistence. Orange clearly color, much torbid and hazy; discreet fizz. Spiced and sour scent, lightly spicy. Smooth and enough dry taste. Slightly prickly and drinkable. Bland, difficult alcoholic perception. Soft end with notes of exotic fruit.

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Poured golden with a fizzy white head. Light citrusy aroma. Acidic citrusy taste to start, similar to a toned-down lambic. Eventually the beer mellows and leaves a clean, pleasant finish. Very refreshing.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2008 28 Jan 2005 - Hoppy sweet malt aroma. Cloudy orange colour with small head. Nice pleasant but simplisitc flavour. A bit too fizzy and a nice nutty tang.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 19, 2005
Strong aroma of spice and bits of alcohol and hop. Spice, clove and fruit in the flavor. Someone said it was ’perfumy" and I’d have to agree. There is something very "fragrant" about the way this "tastes." I know that is odd, but it is still true. Very unusual. Elements of a saison and a belgian strong though much less gas. ZInteresting and pleasing to drink.

MartinT (8736) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 4, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2008 The Lure:
Flowery bouquet of sweet citrus and Middle Eastern desserts. White pepper, rose water, oranges form a very fruity shampoo. Very interesting, but not assertive enough for me to fall in love.

The Festivities:
Fluffy Belgian-like carbonation stabs through the orange peels, white bread crumbs and cake dough. Perfumy, enticing, but again not confident enough compared to their Super Baladin.

The market’s been closed for many hours, but the day’s fragrances still hover.

From the bottle and from the tap at Bir&Fud, Roma.

tiggmtl (4545) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2005
Resinous, spicy spruce, pine, peppery, woody aroma has strong notes of pineapple-orange-lemon, lavender flowers and icing sugary sweetness. Opaque tan-copper with fine-bubbled, fizzy, white head that diminishes to partial cover and ring. Some dark brown sediment. Orange-pineapple-cherry esters with pepper and spruce spiciness and floral-vanilla tones in the aftertaste. Medium body is dry and well-attenuated with gently prickling carbonation that awakens the tongue. Bottle enjoyed with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Olivier_MTL, Rastacouere and Yowie.
