Pours a nice golden-orange color with white head and pleasant lacing after head dissipates. Subtle taste of orange and coriander with a nice finish. I bought a 6 pack of this and had 3 almost immediately and 3 about two months after initial purchase. I felt the first three I had were overly hopped and masked the flavoring. Apparently two months of aging was what was needed, as the second set of three were amazing and the full flavor came through.

Bottle. Probably faded a bit, but still solid. Murky orange pour, decent spices and some hops. Enjoyable but not where it was.

Bottle shared by Greg at The Hoff’s - slightly hazy amber pour. Malty and sweet nose. Sweet taste as well - easy to drink. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear ruby red to orange color with a white foam head. Aroma of a barley wine. Some orange, maybe. No "spices". Tastes a bit like grape skins and honey with a caramel aftertaste. Quite interesting after all this time. I'm sure this was way better fresh though.

I like to think of this as an amped up turbo charged version of Oberon
Fun beer to drink.

Hazy deep amber beer with a good off white head. Smooth palate, semi dry and with a soft edge. Creamy malt, tasting a touch oxidised. Nice tangy orange and other generic fruits - kind of sweet and sour. Smooth finish. Nicely joined up.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, sent from northernbrews (thanks a lot, Jeff), pours a murky orangey brown with a quickly-dissipating fizzy beige head, with huge chunks of sediment. Nose immediately shows hints of oxidation, Belgian yeast, candied sugar and some spices. Flavour of Belgian yeast, some orangey fruitiness, a bit of candied sugar and lots of oxidation. This is clearly past its prime, but I doubt it would’ve been that enjoyable fresh. Low complexity, with average drinkability. Decent beer, with a slightly bumped up rating to counteract the less-than-stellar freshness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Deep golden color out of the bottle with a short lived white head. big boozy nose of alcohol (that became more prevelant as it warmed) honey and bitter orange peel. Big belgian yeast tastes with lots of hot alcohol, corriander and bitter orange peel. Lots of citrus notes, honey sweetness, and a warm alcohol sense in the finish. Still a very nice beer, but I would drink them if you got them.

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.
