Very cloudy orange gold color. Big mouthfeel with hints of green melon, apple, yeast, vanilla. Slight warming alcohol taste. Starts to get a little sweet then stops just in time. Unique.

Tastes better than it looks or smells. Resemble an unfiltered apple cider. Clovey and yeasty malt body with some vanilla overtones. Like candy in the sides of mouth towards the end - rather sweet, then turning tangy. Pretty fat and chewy.

Complex fruity aroma, lots of esters, alcohol, and pale malt. Pale blonde color, good head. Flavor matches the aroma, quite sweet. Very full bodied. A sweet, complex, fruity Belgian with a kick.

Peachy amber in colour, off white creamy head. Aroma of peaches, apples, yeast and some cream. The flavour was smooth creamy, yeasty, apples, bananas, candy sugar, full bodied and complex. Finish is long and tangy. Wonderful.

Apples, and quite yeasry and wheaty. Mine was too young 2 months. I want to buy some moer snd store them for a couple of decades. Then I can imagine the beer will be even more fantastic than it already is.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2004 Swirling, murky deep copper body, poured strangely flat until a thick creamy head was summoned from the depths. Hoppy and leathery aroma with some baking soda as well. Interesting combination of honey sweetness, spice, and leather. This beer brings a striking combination of sweet and bitter which produces an effect akin to chewing on a bar of decorative soap. Too sweet and cloying.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured completely pellucid bronze/ruby with NO head and NO lacing. Aroma at first was slightly tart with notes of green apples, honey, and candi sugar. Flavor is overwelmingly sweet, but this hides the alcohol a bit. Huge citrus flavors with the sweetness, cloying is a word I would use at this point. I believe this is a fresh batch, about 5 years aged and this might possibly be a masterpiece, but from this initial tasting, it was too unfermented. The finish is metallic, like sucking on a penny. Lingers in your mouth for a while. Lick your lips and you'll think you've just tasted schnozberrys. Interesting. If they would have upped the bitterness to match the sweetness this would be good from fresh to aged. As the sweetness ages away, the hops fade, therefore it would maintain a balance always.

1996 bottle. Apple flavor is apparent throughout the palate, and lends some sour notes as well. Slightly spicy. Very easy to drink and smooth. A fine beer.
