Courtesy beerlando. This one poured a golden orange color with a thick white head that has good retention. The head leaves swirly lacing behind as it recedes. The aroma shows sweet citrus fruits, earthy tones, pepper and spices, and candy sugar. The aroma is nice with a lot going on. The flavor follows suit with a lot going on including banana, clove, spices, sweet malts, and grassy hops. Alot of interesting flavors in this one. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with good carbonation that finishes with a sweet bitter finish. This was an interesting, enjoyable beer and glad I got to try it.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours a lightly hazy, glowing orange-amber color. A thick blanket of a foamy, off-white head coats the surface, showing excellent retention. Swaths of sticky lacing coat the glass well. Complex as can be, the nose is quite impressive. I picked up everything from grassy, spicy, peppery hops to banana esters to bready yeast, and seemingly all things in between. Flavors were equally perplexing, with a sweet, fairly neutral, bready malt backdrop allowing the delicate spicing and hopping to shine. Banana, clove, hoppy grass, and white pepper are all distinct. The mouthfeel displays a medium-full, finely carbonated body that sports a touch of lactic creaminess. Finishes very spicy and somewhat dry. A really enjoyable brew, for sure.

cmillward (497) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Bottle @ ORL throwdown, courtesy of Beerlando. Golden body with a huge fluffy head. Smelled of bananas, cloves, floral hops, doughy sweetness, spicy yeast; like a hopped up tripel. Bready sweet flavors, bananas, spicy yeasts. Hops which made such a nice appearance in the aroma come around at the finish to add some bitterness. Fluffy and light in the mouth, totally hid the ABV.

hopscotch (9171) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2008
Bottle... Slap My Ass and Call Me Solan’s Mom O-Town Throwdown, Part Sept... Murky, pear-colored ale with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma is full of phenols and esters. Notes of clove, red apple and pear lead the way with undercurrents of cinnamon and bubble gum following... at a distance. Medium to full-bodied with delicate carbonation. Spicy and sweet with moderate, back-of-the-tongue bitterness. Lengthy, bitter finish. Thanks to Beerlando for his generosity!

dchmela (2641) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Courtesy Beerlando. Pours a light gold with a big white head, big belgian style carbonation bubbles. Sweaty funky hoppy taste. Taste is clean with lots of floral hops, caramel malt and a clove spininess which was strange. Interesting beer.

airforce1 (61) - Atascosa, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2008
Simply put, a beer with some originality. Poured a big, rocky head that lasted for about 45 seconds. Tasted like a classic belgian triple, light and crisp, soft and sweet, but mellowed with well blended flavours. Had a slight anesthetic taste, but the hoppiness and smell were like a symphony in the glass. Yummy!

mgumby10 (1856) - Jupiter, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Courtesy Beerlando. Pours a hazy gold orange color, with a pearly white head. Smells of some sweet fruits, a little acidity, candy sugar, and mixed spices. The nose was nice. The flavor is a little acidic, but some malts and sugars balanced that out quite a bit. Pretty sweet, with some spice characters creating some unusual flavors. Got a bit of some minty clove in there which was interesting. This was definitely a nice beer, but not top 50 quality in my opinion.

thill25 (231) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Tasting courtesy of beerlando...Poured a golden w/ a huge fluffy white head. Nose was floral and pine hops, malts, yeast...The flavor was kind of like mixing a IPA w/ a Belgian strong. The strong hop notes of an IPA came out...the florals, citrus pines, and on the Belgian side some of the rock candy sweetness, malts yeast, and spice poked through. Very complex and hard to put your finger on one thing that stood out. The flavors did mix well, and the carbonated palate worked nice for this beer. I’d love to try this again!

marcbé (86) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 30, 2008
Golden body toped by a cloud of tiny bubble. flowery aroma of hop. Delicious flavor but not very complex. Some spice and bubble gums soft bitterness and not too sweet. A real good beer but it misses something to become great...

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2008
Bottle via Glouglouburp. Golden color with a ton of carbonation. Smell of Dark fruit, hops, citrus, lemon peal, spice and yeast. Smell was wonderful when the head finally went down. Taste of lemons, yeast, hops, spice, citrus and malt. A hands down great brew! Thanks so much Danny!
