Pre-Great Taste sampling at 1FastStiís house

Thanks to JPDIPSO for bringing this - it was the start of a nonstop barrage of excellent beers that flowed for the rest of the night. I enjoyed this one. The combination of funkiness and fruitiness made it fun to drink.

Aroma / Appearance - The murky peachy body fizzed up to a height of one-finger at its highest. When it subsided, it left behind the smells of a musty barn, sour peaches and smoked bacon. Hiding in the background was a bit of spiciness waiting to be unleashed.

Flavor / Palate - A strong peachy impression floated through my mouth. The mouthfeel was spicy and hoppy with a background of cherry, caramelized sugar and a base earthiness. The aftertaste was slightly sweet and funky, reminding me most of raspberries. It was very mild - I could drink many of these on a warm day just to cool down.

BCTC. Sampled from a big 1 liter bottle. Pours a cloudy medium amber/deep copper with a fizzy head. Aroma is very floral and fruity with hints of raspberries, roses, lily flowers, and other herbal notes. Light spice in the aroma, pepper yeast, fruity and herbal. High carbonation.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 21, 2006
Had this one for a couple weeks, as it seems itís now available in the US. 1L bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a huge creamy eggshell head. Aroma is sour fruits and a little funk--kinda saison-y, some floral aromas, misc spices. Flavor is quite tangy--maybe from the elderberry (I havenít had elderberries in years, so I canít remember their taste)? Some dust is also in there with some grassy hops, this doesnít get very bitter. Biscuity finish. Very light bodied, highly carbonated. Nothing exceptional, but not bad by any means. In fact, pretty good.

Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 14, 2006
1 litre swing top bottle. Pours orange with a white head. Smells perfumy with citrus and lots of fruit. Taste is lemony with lots of nice fruity elements and sour undertones.

Bottle from Super Saver. Hazy orangy pour with 2-finger off-white head. Aromas of hopcit, berries, some orange zest, and floral notes. The flavor is hopcitric, with the aforementioned berry and floral spicy notes, plus some malts in the background.

Looks like Iím the first one outside of Italy to rate this beer. Big, 1 liter swingtop bottle. Hazy orange color with a medium off white head. Spicy, floral aroma with a bit of citrus and a touch of celery. Mildly tart flavor, with the spices and floral aspects somewhat muted. Citrusy and quite refreshing. Most who sampled this with me at the HW open house initially thought the beer kind of boring. After a while however, the beer started to become much more enjoyable. Perhaps it was due to the fact that it was 90 degrees outside and were drinking some big beers, but it was a nice change of pace.

Voivod (304) - Como, ITALY - JUL 29, 2003
Dark orange colour, quite cloudy, few, but creamy and persistent had. Wonderful aroma, with the scent of many flowers. Very light flavour, dominated by the orange peels taste. It seems like a light and not so complex version of Orval.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 10, 2002
Cloudy orange-light amber colour, beautiful head, creamy, lace. Original aroma, like a wine wort, scent of Fragola grape, prunes, light elderflowers. Light body (anyway necessary to exalt the floral notes), floral, delicate; dry, pretty bitter. Simple palate. Original but not outstanding.
