Draft. Clear deep lemon brownish color. No activity/static. Tomato, V8 initial aroma. Celery, spicy, tabasco-like . . . am I drinking a Bloody Mary? :) Fruity pineapple, spicy flavoring. Very interesting. Pleasing. Nice go.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draft) Pours a lightly hazy golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of coriander, sweet citrus, apricot, pineapple, mustiness, banana, sweat, and light horse blanket. Flavor of sweet citrus, honey, light herbs, funkiness, and candi sugar with a semi-dry oak finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
EBF V NOTB. Sort of a wit/tripel/strong ale hybrid it seemed to me. Banana, wheat, citrus, apricot, apple, probably more, no reason to distrust that pineapple and peach weren’t there too, all nicely balanced, never gets overly sweet. My notes don’t really specify what was in the nose and what was in the flavor, but I do know that after not being sure what to expect, I was very impressed by this brew. Maybe there’s something to all this meditation/vibration stuff they talk about.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extreme Beer Fest 2/15/08: A robust golden/blonde ale, more like a tripel. Taste of Belgian yeast, banana, wheat, apple, sweetness. Very light, you couldn’t tell this was a 9.4% abv. A good brew.
