Bottled, 1999 vintage. Hazy orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is really fruity along with some toffee and mild acidic notes. Also quite big hops notable. Flavour is very much toffee (fudge) along with some mild grassyness and spices. Also quite flowery notes. Smooth and wellaged.

75cl Bottle. Vintage 2000. Pours unclear amber with a creamy white head. Nose is sweet malty. Caramel and fruit with a vague oxidized note. Flavor is yeast, caramel and fruit with a good deal of carbonation left. Holding up pretty well after 11 years only being 4,5%.

JStax (3992) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUN 15, 2012
Poured on draft at gnome week at the galley. Pale hazy yellow with a rather frothy white head. Aroma is kinda odd yeasty wheaty. Not great in that regard. Taste grew on me with its wheat influence, but still just seems to be lacking something. Overall, good, but I don’t think Id bother with it again.

brokensail (13761) - Orange County, California, USA - APR 30, 2013
Hazy amber pour with a white head. Banana, bread, and toasted malt. Nice pear, apple, and some hints of spice and yeast. Banana and bread flavor, some yeast, and a touch of spice. Very heavy on the apple and pear, sort of cidery. Kind of bland, but not bad.
