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.

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!

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...

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!

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2008 Lightish golden pour with an immense white head lacing the glass. Complex citrus and pine hops aroma with sweet banana and malt. The flavor is a bit too much for me, as if the three hop varieties are at war in my mouth. There are citrus, floral, and pine/medicinal hop flavors with a somewhat sweet finish. This is an interesting concept, but the flavor just didn’t work for me...

Superb beer. Great floral aroma. Just enough sweetness with a drier, hoppy finish. Many thanks, Dany!

750 ml bottle shared by mreusch. Pours a crystal clear gold, on the first pour, with a dense, fluffy, white head that laces nicely. The second pour is cloudy but otherwise similar in appearance. The nose is bright, citric, floral and slightly spicy (white pepper) with a red apple note in support and a touch of sourness and noble hops in the background. Medium-bodied and soft with fine carbonation and a mild, dry finish; very nice. Soft, dry red apples, faint white pepper and a nice blend of citric, grassy and soft earthy hops. This is a very nice beer. It reminds, in some respects, of Duvel with a better mouthfeel and a bigger hop backing. Thank you for sharing it with me, Matt.

750ml, 2007 bottle, with a huge thank you to Dany (Glouglouburp)! Pours a beautiful, crystal clear golden straw color with a towering fluffy bright white head that lasts forever, excellent lacing. A rare 5 in the appearance category. Aroma is some rind, zest, cut apple, citrus hops, fruits, grass, and lots of other complimentary but unidentifiable notes. Flavor is another turn, with the hops coming through a lot more, and the other qualities from the nose remaining present but pushed to the back. This is one unique beer, from start to finish, and although not at all what I’d I’d expect, does not disappoint in any way. Quite enjoyable, thanks again Dany!

Thanks to Dany for the 2007 bottle! Poured sparkly medium golden with a tall, whipped cream-like cap of whitish head.. plenty of rising carbonation. The aroma picked up a wonderful blend of sweet, toasty darker fruits, orange peel, cat pee, and peppery spices.. sweeter on the back with pale-inspired maltage. The flavor was on the sweet side with candied fruits and toffee at the core.. pepper, dusty funk, and clovey spices join some orange zest, floral notes, and warm alcohol on the edges.. finished zesty with a nice blend of spices and fruity sourness. Dry on the palate with high carbonation and great balance.. expertly-crafted and warm in the belly. This was great!

750ml bottle courtesy of Ughsmash. Many thanks!

Pours a gorgeous plume of creamy long-lasting head. Definate aromas of all three hops involved. I was a bit skeptical about how these would work together, but my fears were quickly put away. Very potent esters that follow quickly behind. Pleasant mouthfeel and body. A very up-front sweetness on the sides of the tongue. The sweetness, bit of creamy character and layers of hop complexity seem a little disjointed on my palate. Overall, still very well crafted and a great blending of hops.
