A - pours light coppery yellow with 1 finger white head. Leaves a thin layer. S - aromas of booze and malts. Some coconut and oak. Quiet tropical fruits and peaches. Simple malty and boozy. M - medium body, weak palate. Malty like mad. T - booze, oak and heavy caramel and vegetal malts are drowned out by weird half rotten guava and pit fruit. O - Muddled and uninspired. 2.8

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a reddish orange. The beer has a slight haze and a full white head that quickly falls leaving no lacing. The aroma has some of the earthy farmhouse tones but it also has a slight fruity aroma. As with the last two CCB saisons I had, this one is super effervescent. Very soda-like. The carbonation tingle kills most of the flavor. There is a slight sweetness but it is very well done for a "fruit beer".

2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle via Hopscotch and served in my St Bernardus chalice: Pinkish coppery hue with a long lasting fizzy head. The aroma is a smack down of fruit and booze... peach, mango, strawberry, Tequila, fresh oak whiskey and some caramel and biscuity malts. The taste is more of the same, silly stupid amount of tropical and fleshy fruit over a layer of non-descript malts with some herbal hops bitterness upon the finish. There is an acidic tartness and acetone overtones that seems to be misplaced, like it is there but forced instead of just letting the fruit do the work. The acidity and medicinal notes are very unwelcomed... very disappointed. I wonder how old this bottle is, ’cause this screams of some the issues this beer had back in 2009/10

Fruity taste, peach, mango, quite spicy, wheat, wood (?).
Bottled in May 2011, this one has really started going down hill. Quite likely pretty good when fresh. (2013-06-12)
