3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Enjoyed via a bottle from the cellar on a Sunday evening. Pours a cloudy bronze with a medium cream head that clings to the glass. Smell is of apple cider and grapefruit. The taste is of apple and pear with mild carbonation and an an after taste best described as how it smells outside after a rain. Mild hops and dryness on the aftertaste.

35,5 cl bottle. Rated on 05.01.2011
Aroma is sweet with malt and some raisins – feels like an aged American Barley Wine. Flavour is also sweet with malt, raisins, some sugar and ripe fruits. Good and well aged, although a bit too sweet for me still.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old notes, no date. Pours an amber orange with thick white head, minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat, yeast, citrus, and bubble gum. Aroma matches well, but just doesn’t have the complexity I was hoping for.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The beer is hazy orange in color with a small white head. Strong aromas of orange peel and coriander come through. It’s decently bready, but also fairly stale. Really not much left to the aroma. The same can be said of the flavor. Stale sugar and bread with a hint of toast. The orange peel and coriander are really the only saving graces to this beer. Sort of lifeless in terms of the mouthfeel as well.

Bottle @ home, courtesy of Ughsmash. Thanks! Cloudy, brownish-orange appearance with no head and little carbonation. Sweet caramel malty, dull fruity, lightly spicy aroma. Somewhat spicy, caramel, Belgian yeasty, light citrusy, lightly tart, dull spicy flavor with some oxidation. This baby’s peaked but I’m still glad I got to try it...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2011 A fun and very enjoyable but not great, beer. Pours golden yellow with an off-white head. There’s bread, toffee, spices, belgian yeast and malt on the nose. Taste is sweet, but also with a lot of sourness. It actually starts off with sweet caramel, then turns into a balanced bitterness before again turning sweet in the fairly long finish. Body was medium with quite a bit of carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle via trade with dbsdelight a while back- thanks, Dan! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a small white head. Aroma of paper, wheat, citrus, peppery spices, and sweet malts. Flavor of butterscotch, sweet malts, spices, and citrus peel. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a spicy, sweet mouthfeel. Some oxidation has set in and I imagine this would be better in its original form, but it’s still all right.

Hefiger, etwas süßer Geruch. Vollmunidger Antrunk, alkoholisch, nur leicht hefig. Das Bier ist in Teilen mild, wirkt aber dennoch ausreichend aromatisch, was auch durch den Hopfen erreicht wird. Dieser blüht im Mittelteil auf und ist im Nachgeschmack zusammen mit leichter Herbe führend. Einuntertöniger Gewürzton tut sein Übriges. Minimal brennend. Danke an den Doppelbock für die Besorgung des Bieres. -/11/10/11/-/11
