4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 Sample enjoyed at Skyview tasting. Nice yellow pour with aroma of apricot and papaya. Flavor was pleasantly yeasty, bitter and finished a little dry. A very good brew.
3/2/13 Rerate. Less yeast, more light hay and dry lemon flavors. Really enjoyed this more than I remembered.

Thanks Levi. Hazy yellow pour with a foamy off white head. Nice lacing. Spices, pineapple and hops on the nose. The spices and light fruits come out a bit more in the flavor along with some dryness.

Sampled at Skyview’s tavern. Certainly the first thing I noticed with this beer was the interesting shape of the bottle. Light golden pour. Aroma of pear, apricot, citrus, bread, and flowery hops. Finish was slightly dry. A pretty decent and well crafted brew. Enjoyable!

Bottle thanks to Bert from Stateline. Poured a light golden/ yellow color, with big old cream head. It was very carbonated. Aroma was mint and hops. Taste was earthy, citrus, and caramel. Finished clean and drinkable. Thanks again Sloth.

750 ml bottle, 2007. Pours a misty golden brown. Not paying attention this shot up a big whipped cream head that faded with patchwork lace. Nose is pastry dough, rose water, cut grass and light pepper. Tingly, slick mouthfeel that’s syrupy and resiny but balanced and softened. Taste is lemon candy, caramel, green apple, spearmint, pink grapefruit and white pepper. What a wonderful hop melange.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large white head, good retention and lace. Lightly hazy gold color. Nose is spicey, floral and grassy, too much so for me. Body is lightly medium, overly carbonated and somewhat oily. Alot of grassy, floral hop flavors with a lightly sweet malt backing, fairly dry and spicey. Dry grassy finish with a light breadyness. Damn AmBelgique IIPAs, dont get it. Thanks cletus!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bouteille de 750 ml vieillie 1 an. Nos yeux observent ce divin nectar d un œil mielleux légèrement trouble ainsi qu un col de mousse imposant qui colle à la parois du verre. Au nez on découvre une multitude d arômes bien balancées : pamplemousse, fleurs, miel, trèfle ainsi qu un parfum de levure qui suggèrent les épices. En bouche le corps est rond avec une effervescence moyenne. On goûte d abord des saveurs de grain mielleux, vient ensuite le côté épicée de la levure ( pamplemousse, poivre) et le tout se termine avec une amertume tranchante de houblon pamplemousse. Le 10% est très bien camouflé. Excellent

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from glouglouburp shared at Yeha 2008, thanks Dany. Clear orange gold body with small clinging carbonation and a large frothy white head. Aroma is very spicey and peppery with notes of yeast and flowers. Medium bodied with average carbonation a slightly dry finsih and a long lingering finish. Flavor has notes of licorice, earth, yeast, flower petals and even a touch of mint. Very complex and if you prefer saisons or a beer along those lines you will love this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by sloth. Poured with a big huge head, lots of carbonation, huge rocky and pilloy nature to the head, continuous rings of lacing all the way down. One of those trendy 3ipa bsa deals, been liking my last several. Floral, minty, some lighter candi sugar flavors, faint yeast, good stuff, but man I had no idea it was above 4.0 on RB - and still cannot really believe it. Thanks, Bert!
