DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 28, 2008
Draft at Capone’s. Pours turbid deep gold with 1-finger white head. Nose is very fruity, with orange, fig, melon, honey, peach, spicy yeast, perfumy florals. Very complex aroma. The flavor is fruity at first, with apricot, peach, orange, giving way to spicy yeast, florals, and some earthy and peaty finishing notes. Very complex in flavor, with a rich, complex palate, I’m gonna go ahead and cal this an elite grand cru; certainly one of the 10 best examples I’ve ever tasted.

Draught at The Wheatsheaf Hotel Adelaide: Golden colour, with a great head that retains well. Cinnamon and cloves come through on the palette, and candi sugar at the end. Very close to a wietbier. Got to admire Garrett on this one, he has created a really good beer that is well worth seeking out.

On tap at Archive Beer Boutique. Strong almost port like flavours with aromas of raisins and spices.

On draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow in the glass with an off white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with corriander and orange notes. Taste is fruity with a slight banana ester and an extremely dry and smooth finish. This is definitely one of the best beers I’ve had in a long time.

Never thought I would find this on and finally did while in Orlando. Pale clear golden color with a thin white head that stuck around. beautiful smooth mouth feel. Sweet mild taste of vanilla, bananas with bit of yeast. Great overall beer.

The beerís aroma is a thing of olfactory beauty, with the wonderful Wit yeast esters dancing in step with the spice and citrus additions, the by-products of wheat malt fermentation creating a delightfully effervescent bouquet. That itís 8.4% abv is a fact not to be overlooked, or under-appreciated, especially because the beer drinks so easily, with the illusion of a harmless lightness of body. You think that youíre being refreshed -- and you are -- but after a few small glasses, youíre also quickly on your way from being quenched to quashed! If ever you get the rare opportunity to sample this one-of-a-kind beer, donít waste it! But also, be careful not to let it waste you!

This is a phenomenal beer. It pours a hazy golden color with a strong aroma of honey, light fruit, slight floral, and very slight brett. It tastes exquisite with a very smooth taste of sugar, light fruit, and a great sweet finish. Complex beer that has many different flavor. Kudos to OTH for carrying it on draft,

Tap @ Blind Tiger. Pours a clear golden color with a small but lingering white head. Aroma is slight clove and banana, with vanilla detectable as well. Taste is the same, with the flavors delicately dancing across the tongue. Finish is vanilla, which is a vast upgrade from the usual watery finish of Brooklyn’s Belgian ales. I was incredibly surprised by this one, and I hope their future Belgian offerings are the same high quality.

Tapped into a goblet. A beautiful golden color that was moderately translucent. Donít remember much of the aroma however the taste was good. It is a very smooth Belgian style with little of the sourness found in similar styles Iíve tried. Overall a good beer.

Brilliant, Alcohol hidden really well, quite sweet but not too much. Was one the top beers i got to try at Gabs Festival.
