Bottle at Fin & Lozís tasting with Jan, Charlotte, Craig, Stella & kids consumed 21.10.11 Jan brought this beer along, cheers Jan!

Lightly fruity and a little floral at times with some orange blossomn mauybe, mmhh.. there is even some perfume coming across also. Nice beer, really nice, given it 3.7 but it probably should have been higher, Iíll give it 3.8 then. b> A7 A3 T8 P4 Ov16 3.8

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle; Pour is murky dark gold with an average off white head in this tulip - light, spotty lacing is present here. The nose is american hops and a light belgian note - coupled with some citrus elements - this is a fairly nice BPA - itís also a little boring, and lacking depth - but nice nonetheless. Orange peel, caramel, pine, and a belgian yeast note. Not bad at all, actually.

Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a clear moderate amber color with a slight white head. Aroma is of some fruity and spice notes, light earth, and some citrus hops and light perfumy notes. Taste is citrus hop, fruity/spicy Belgian yeast notes, and a nice lingering hop bitterness on the finish. Very solid example of the hybrid style.

draft at Coles, Buffalo NY> orange golden pour> Floral, Herbal aroma with citrus peel & Belgian yeast. Flavor is speariment, , herbal, medicinal almost throat lozenge like. sweet pot pourri with some bitterness masked in the back. Decent but too perfumy & bitterness is sort of lost in the Belgian aspect

22 oz. bottle from a buddy in Texas- thanks, Brian! Pours a cloudy gold-orange color with a small white head. Aroma of floral and grassy hops, Belgian yeast, straw, pale malts, and candi sugar. Flavor of sweet malts, corn flakes, candi sugar, sweet bread, floral hops, and a hint of citrus. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, malty mouthfeel. Belgian character really comes through in this one.

Bomber from smith4498, thanks Jason. Poured a nice looking clear deep orangey/amber with a smaller off white frothy head. Aroma of yeast, spice, citrus, brown bread, bubble gum, pepper. Nice body with a medium/full mouthfeel, average to stronger carbonation, a solid bready feel that finishes nice and dry with a crisp lingering bite. Flavor of bread, grapefruit rind, yeast, pepper, hint of cat piss, citrus and toast. Solid beer that gets better the more I sip it.
