Tried a fresh one - 2006 330ml bottle from the grog shop in Porirua. It’s still a great beer but not what it was only a few years ago. Will put some away to see how it ages. I now have some of each year 2000 - 2006. The 2000 (1500ml bottles) remains the best each time I have a vertical tasting of it.

One of the best tasting beers I have ever had, but sadly, it was WAY too over carbonated. Felt like I was drinking beer flavored champagne. Probably would be better after sitting a while, but it rtasted so good I just couldn’t let it sit.

Great beer with a small touch of alcohol in the aroma. Just enough alcohol to warm the senses and a wonderful taste to match.

Pours brownish red with very light tan, moderately rocky head that is short lasting. Some alcohol in the nose with fruit aroma. Medium maltiness with solid carmel notes. Tried a bottle of this in Belgian last year- vintage 1991 which was much more complex (due to good aging). Great beer!

UPDATED: APR 21, 2007 Strong, complex, but not overwhelming. Just an overall great ale that fits in on almost any occasion. Beautiful pout, nice aroma of light fruit and fresh malts. A pleasure to sip!

Bottle. Pours dark brown, moderate white head. Nose is bananas, yeast, maybe some malts, and an overall sourness. Flavor is much of the same, with a carbonated mouthfeel.
