2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear orange gold with a fluffy white head that didnít really last. A yeast dominated aroma with banana and some soft spice that makes it seems like a liquid dessert. Actually, Iíve changed my mind. It has a creamy coconut milk finish that has me thinking, in a light bulb over the head moment, of a pina colada (although light on the pineapple - maybe a banana colada). Quite a sweet taste, with some bitterness hanging around that combines with the sugary sweetness making it a touch cloying and sickly. Itís got an interesting aroma that had me thinking, but it wasnít something that I really enjoyed (the beer not the thinking that is).

Taste: fruity start, pretty bitter, floral, bit soapy. Aftertaste: citrus, nice bitter hops, floral, bit soapy. Very decent, much better than expected.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty old bottle - bb 2008. Pours gold, head is just a cream coat. Honey and spice nose - cinnamon, cloves, galangal, coriander. Almost flat with hints it wasnít once. Taste is orange sweet with some cheesy yeast and (nice) stale hops. The tiny hints of better beers (Chimay white, Orval, Duval) are just enough to be slightly annoying.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Soft fluffy white head and a cloudy dark honeycomb colour. The head settles to leave a nice lacing on the glass. Port like aroma as spices and cloves fight for domination. Light in the mouth given the high alcohol content and leaves a strong long aftertaste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick luscious head settles to 1cm, earthy toffee kind of hazy amber. Nice lacing though.
Aroma is of honey, raisins, wheat, funky/musty old hops (similar to a gueuze), hints of alcohol, cinnamon, and a hint of red wine.
Taste is "wow" - reminds me of lindemans gueze, but with added coriander. Again, honey, cinnamon. Alcohol is highly noticeable. Hint of extract twang Bit of orange sherbert. Very watery finish with no bitter backing.
Creamy carbonation, but feels watery on palate.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle (in NZ), pours a crystal clear gold with a large white frothy head. The nose carries a sweet spicyness with a light citrus tang. Quite spritzy with a bit of a bland cardboard palate. Finish is a touch peppery, but still donít get a lot of flavour. Just a bit lacking.
